Canterbury Archbishop says visit to Jallianwala Bagh arouses profound shame

Amritsar. Archbishop of Canterbury Reverend Justin Welby visited Jallianwala Bagh, the site of British colonial era massacre, and said it was a "deeply humbling" experience and provoked "feelings of profound shame". He said he was very sorry for what happened in the place.

The massacre took place at Jallianwala Bagh in Amritsar in April 1919 when the British Indian Army under the command of Colonel Reginald Dyer opened fire at a crowd staging a pro-independence demonstration.

In the visitors' book, Welby wrote, "It is deeply humbling and provokes feelings of profound shame to visit this place that witnessed such atrocities hundred years ago."
