Prelims fact # 2

Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has paid tributes to the martyrs of the Jallianwala Bagh
massacre.
The Prime Minister said, “Tributes to the brave martyrs of the Jallianwala Bagh massacre. The
indomitable spirit of the martyrs will always be remembered. They sacrificed their lives for our
freedom.”
The Jallianwala Bagh massacre, also known as the Amritsar massacre, took place on April
13, 1919. This is remembered as one of the deadliest attacks in the history of the world and is
also a turning point in India’s freedom struggle. At the Jallianwala Bagh, which is garden spread
across 6 to 7 acres, a large gathering of 15,000-20,000 people with a majority of Sikhs, took
place to celebrate the Punjabi harvest festival of Baisakhi. They had also gathered to revolt
against the repressive Rowlatt Act that provided for stricter control of the press, arrests without

warrant and indefinite detention without trial. But little did they know what the British India Army
had in mind.
