13th April Celebrated As Jallianwala Bagh Massacre Day

Punjab the land of five rivers witnessed series of great artificial disasters in the last century but on the day of Baisakhi 13th April 1919, it witnessed one of the deadliest and ruthless massacres ever done by the British empire on any of the commonwealth nations.

    It is an event that is deep-rooted in the memory of every Indian since the day it happened. It is almost more than a hundred years when British commander Reginald Edward Harry Dyer leading British troops of near about 50 soldiers loaded with arms and ammunition opened their guns on a crowd of more than 10,000 peoples which includes all age group peoples and all section of society who gathered at Jallianwala Bagh for protest against the Rowlatt Act. They stop firing when they ran out of their ammunition and the worst part of this incident is that there is only one narrow passage to get out of the Bagh which is already captured by British troops. People start running here and there and some of them just jump into the well nearby in the park. According to some reports, there are more than 500 casualties and more than 1000 are injured. The repercussions of this act from General dyer is that British forces were unsanctioned to fire on civilians afterward.

The Jallianwala Bagh brutal and senseless act shocked peoples all around the country and shapes the Indian independence movement in a new way, people get united and start demanding nothing less than full independence.
