Jallianwala Bagh massacre

        On April 13, 1919, the people of Punjab gathered on the auspicious day of Baisakhi at Jallianwala Bagh near Golden Temple in Amritsar. They were protesting peacefully against the arrest of Dr. Satya Pal and Saifuddin Kitchlew, two prominent national leaders. General Dyer ordered the British armed forces to open fire at the hundreds of innocent, unarmed men, women and children.
The massacre stunned the whole country. The government imposed martial law in Punjab. Under martial law, people were tortured, newspapers were banned and mails were censored.
