The British General Dyer was the Lieutenant Governor of the province in 1919 who was the main reason of disaster. First, he banned all meetings and revelations led by Indians against the economical set back by World War I. On 13 April 1919, people were gathered at Jallian Wala Bagh, Amritsar to celebrate the Baisakhi festival, a holiday in the Sikh calendar. In the afternoon a large amount of people gathered at Jallian Wala Bagh to celebrate the Baisakhi. General Dyer personally controlled the troops to the sight and ordered his men to open fire and kill everyone without any warning. Consequently, 37 were died and more than 1200 were injured. Gandhiji, called for a nation have started many strikes and the Non-cooperation Movement to give feedback to the British. These strikes became a significant mile stone in the struggle for India's Independence. Today this ground has been turned into amusement garden.
