Vice President M. Venkaiah Naidu visited Jallianwala Bagh

AMRITSAR. The Vice President M. Venkaiah Naidu today visited Jallianwala Bagh in Amritsar and paid tributes to martyrs on the 100th anniversary of one of the goriest episodes in human history and the darkest chapter of the British rule in India, the Jallianwala Bagh massacre. The commemoration ceremony to pay homage to the martyrs was organized by the Ministry of culture, Government of India.

Shri Naidu paid his respects to the fallen heroes by placing a wreath upon the memorial. He released a commemorative coin and a postage stamp to mark the 100th anniversary of Jallianwala Bagh massacre. The Vice President was also appraised of the proposed works for the revitalization of the memorial.

Shri Naidu tweeted that Jallianwala Bagh was a reminder to each one of us as to how hard won & precious our freedom is. He said that it was an occasion to shed a silent tear for each of the innocent Indians who lost their lives that Baisakhi day in 1919 and a poignant moment of reflection on colonial cruelty & irrational anger.

The Vice President said through social media that the pain and agony continue to rankle in the hearts of every Indian to this day even though 100 years have lapsed since that inhuman massacre happened. ‘History is not a mere chronicle of events. It shows us the depths to which depraved minds can plunge and cautions us to learn from the past. It also tells us that the power of evil is transient.’, he said.

The Governor of Punjab, V.P. Singh Badnore, the Secretary, Ministry of Culture, Government of India, Arun Goel and senior officials of the central and state government were present on the occasion. (updated on april 14th, 2019)
