On 13th April 1919, Brigadier-General Reginald E.H. Dyer ordered a mass execution style attack on a peaceful congregation to quell the people’s right to gather and to voice their concerns. Official sources estimate the fatalities at 379 with 1100 wounded but the Indian National Congress calculates the number of dead at 1000 and the causalities at 1500. Some Wiki information:
In remembrance of the victims of Jallianwala Bagh, the Committee of Progressive Pakistani Canadians (CPPC) and Indo-Canadian Workers Association has arranged a candlelight Vigil in Surrey today:
