The exhibition that is on display till April 28 has been curated over the last two and a half years. The idea was to shift focus from just the main incident to the days that preceded it and its aftermath.
The Union Ministry of Culture had organised programme, to mark 100 years of massacre that took place on April 13, 1919. Naidu, accompanied by Punjab Governor V P Singh Badnore, attended the event. Amarinder’s media advisor later said that CM “could not attend the event due to other commitments”.
“We passed two main resolutions. In one resolution we demanded from the British government heavy compensation to the families of the victims who were killed 100 years back and told the UK government that their regret is not enough for this genocide,” Abdul Rashid Qureshi, president of the foundation, told The Indian Express.
"...Union Ministry of Culture was trying to destroy the historical monuments by demolishing three historic lanes including, one main and two tiny lanes for exit, to facilitate wider entry point for VVIP vehicles,” said Naunihal Singh, then general secretary of DBYHC.
