Note
Jallianwala Bagh Massacre is also known as the Massacre of Amritsar that happened on 13th April, 1919. British troops fired on a large gathering of unarmed people known as the Jallianwala Bagh, Punjab, killing hundreds of people and wounding hundreds of people.

On this day all the people from neighbouring villages gathered together to celebrate the festival of Baisakhi, and peacefully protest the arrest of two national leaders: Satyapal and Saifuddin Kitchlew. The Jallianwala Bagh had a narrow entrance or passage where the massacre happened. As General Dyer entered, his troop blocked the entrance and with no warning, opened fire on the crowd. This led to the death of many people and many people were injured during this massacre.
