Britain Must Apologize for Jallianwala Bagh Killings, Says London Mayor Sadiq Khan
08 December 2017, 12:38 | Justin Tyler
The Punjab chief minister said he heard Khan's remarks on the Jallianwala incident and was happy to know about his feelings on the matter.
London's plain-speaking mayor Sadiq Khan on Wednesday said it was time for the British government to make a "full and formal apology" to India for the Jallianwala Bagh massacre almost a century ago as he visited Amritsar.
Over the years, several MPs and politicians of Indian and South Asian-origin have asked the United Kingdom government to offer an apology to the Indian people but members of the royal family and British premiers have never gone that far during their visits to India. At the time Winston Churchill proclaimed the massacre "monstrous" and the British government condemned Dyer for his actions, but no apology has since been forthcoming.
He was quoted saying, "As someone whose grandparents were born in India, and whose parents moved to London from Pakistan, I feel a deep affinity for the subcontinent", said Khan.
"The British government should apologize for the Jallianwala Bagh shootings".
Now on a visit to the Indian sub-continent on "London is open" campaign, Sadiq Khan, made this statement, through his official twitter account, while visiting the massacre site Jallianwala Bagh near Amritsar on Tuesday. "It was important for me also to come to the Jallianwala Bagh".
Writing in the visitors' book, Khan said it had been "incredibly moving" to see the site of the massacre, calling it a tragedy that should never be forgotten. The memorial was inaugurated in 1961 and serves as a way to remember those who died and were injured in the massacre.
Colonial-era records show about 400 people died when soldiers opened fire on men, women and children in the enclosed area, but Indian figures put the toll at closer to 1,000. "Some people used the word massacre", the Mayor said.

The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee gave Khan a "siropa" (robe of honour) during the visit.
His visit was part of his first official tour to three Indian cities and three Pakistan cities-Lahore, Karachi and Islamabad-to promote the British capital's resilience and strengths post-Brexit.
