Jalandhar: The Jallianwala Bagh massacre which took place in Amritsar over Baisakhi in April 1919 is undoubtedly one of the most brutal incidents in our nation's national movement to gain independence against the rule of the mighty British Empire.

As the nation commemorates the 100th anniversary of the massacre of hundreds of innocent Indians by British forces at the Jallianwala Bagh, British High Commissioner Sir Dominic Asquith on Saturday expressed deep regret and sorrow but remained non-committal on any apology coming from the British government on the brutal killings.


In a noble bid to mark the centenary of the Jallianwala Bagh massacre and pay tribute to the martyred, ABP News has been  organizing  torch-lit march across Patiala, Ludhiana, Jalandhar & Amritsar on April 10, 11, 12 & 13 respectively.

ABP News launched its campaign with a cause from the historical city of Patiala on Wednesday to make the citizens cognizant of the sacrifices made by our brave-hearts to gain the much cherished independence.
