    I used to participate in international forums ... once a British person said Jalianwal bagh was a necessary evil. It is not murder but riot control .. for example, if a crowd goes out of control, you control it. And india has the tradition of riots, mob attacks etc. So out of fear, General Dyer and others must have opened fire to protect themselves.

    Is this argument valid?

    One does not know exactly the situation that was developing around Jalianwalla Bagh.

    As per all records, it appears that the gathering was peaceful.

    Therefore, how can it be justified?

    Or did such a large gathering spook the already scared British Raj?

    Or was the British General a blasted racist and his genes reeked of the same?

    What is your opinion on this riot control ??

    Do you agree with the mob who go out of control for silly reasons destroying properties and war memorials ??

    I love trolls.

    Their attitude, not their aptitude, determines the altitude in their lack of intellect.

    Yet this is what the British history books taught. This is what I was taught growing up in the UK. That the good General ordered the troops to fire to protect lives and property. It was only after watching the late Mr. Attenborough's film Gandhi that I realized the lie that I had been taught. That and the lie about the Aryan Invasion myth that is still taught to school kids as absolute fact.

    I think in Azad Maidan riots this was a necessary evil. One good T-90 would have done the job to calm down the "peaceful"

    That General in his own testimony stated that the crowd was unarmed and peaceful. He went there and in cold blood ordered firing, without provocation or even a warning.
