Testimony

Amritsar 1919. Baisakhi 13 April. Post WW1. Colonial India .Want of peace. Satyagraha. Protest. Widespread. Hartal. Demonstrations. Gatherings. Unarmed. Martial Law. Dyer. Orders. Bloodbath. One of the worst political crimes of the twentieth century was committed in Jallianwala Bagh, Amritsar. A crowd of nonviolent protesters, along with Baishakhi pilgrims, who had gathered in Jallianwala Bagh, Amritsar, Punjab, were fired upon by troops of the British Indian Army under the command of Colonel Reginald Dyer. It was a massacre. We can only hope it stands testimony to colonisation and bigotry in the darker days yet to come.
