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.
Through his reports and writings, Horniman said that “after the revelations of the Hunter Committee, Great Britain cannot, if she is to maintain her honour before the world, remain quiescent.....she will have to see whether the intention to terrorize the people of Punjab was deliberate and prearranged.”
On the right flank is General Dyer, positioned above the entrance to the Jallianwala Bagh memorial. As his actions are viewed differently by different people, there’s a halo over his head for the view that ‘he was the saviour of Punjab’ and a tail to show ‘the beast’ who ordered the massacre
