How Jallianwala Bagh Massacre made Britain lose the Jewel in it's Crown

Author: Amit Schandillia Narrator: Vijayan Menon Audiobook and E-book

History recorded him as the Butcher of Amritsar. On April 13, 1919, General Reginald Dyer ordered his men to open indiscriminate fire at a crowd of peaceful protesters in Jallianwala Bagh killing over a thousand right away. While this happened in Amritsar, a young Urdu poet in Aligarh dreamed of what would come to be known as purna swaraj or complete independence. This is the story of how the two men crossed paths to cost the British Empire its crowning jewel.
