On hearing that a meeting of 15,000 to 20,000 people was taking place at Jallianwala Bagh, Brigadier General Dyer had ordered 50 riflemen to shoot at the crowd.
David Cameron in Jallianwala Bagh took off his shoes, knelt in mourning but stopped short of making a formal apology.
David Cmeron wrote in the visitor book,”This was a deeply shameful act in British history, one that Winston Churchill rightly described at that time as ‘monstrous.’ We must never forget what happened here and we must ensure that the UK stands up for the right of peaceful protests,”.
Cameron also stood for a few seconds before the Amar Joyti (burning flame) at Jallianwalla Bagh where he bowed his head to show respect to the martyrs.
