PM Modi pays tributes to the victims of the Jallianwala Bagh massacre

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi paid tribute to the victims of the Jallianwala Bagh massacre on Wednesday, saying that their unmatched bravery and sacrifice will continue to inspire future generations.

PM Modi tweeted a quote from his speech at the inauguration of the rebuilt Jallianwala Bagh Smarak complex last year "On this day in 1919, tributes were paid to those who were martyred at Jallianwala Bagh. Their unmatched bravery and sacrifice will continue to inspire future generations."

On August 28, last year, Prime Minister Modi used video conferencing to present the refurbished Jallianwala Bagh memorial, saying that those 10 minutes on April 13, 1919, became the immortal story of our independence struggle, thanks to which we are able to celebrate the Amrit Mahotsav of freedom today. Jallianwala Bagh inspired innumerable revolutionaries and soldiers to die for India's independence, including Sardar Udham Singh and Sardar Bhagat Singh.

"I bow to the fortitude and valour of the eternal martyrs of the Jallianwala Bagh massacre, which is a symbol of the cruelty and brutal atrocities of foreign control," Union Home Minister Amit Shah tweeted in respect to the victims of the Jallianwala Bagh atrocity.  "Your sacrifice, dedication, and sacrifice for Mother India's liberation will continue to inspire future generations to sacrifice for the country's unity and integrity," Shah said.

On April 13, 1919, British Indian Army forces under Colonel Reginald Dyer fired machine guns into a gathering of unarmed demonstrators and pilgrims who had congregated in Jallianwala Bagh in Punjab's Amritsar for Baisakhi.
