13 April 2019 marks the 100th year of the Jallianwala Bagh Massacre, one of the most inglorious chapters of British rule in India. On that day, in 1919, the British Army killed over 1,000 peaceful protestors in a walled public garden (Jallianwala Bagh) in Amritsar, Punjab. Over the years, there has been a growing demand from many, including several British historians, and parliamentarians, and Indian political parties, for the British government to formally apologize in Parliament and commemorate the Jallianwala Bagh massacre with a memorial day.
