London Mayor Sadiq Khan while visiting Jallianwalla memorial has stated that Britain should apologise to the Indian for the massacre at Jallianwallabag in 1919 by the British, which resulted in the murder of thousands of innocent Indian people, who were assembled there for a protest meeting. General Dyer ordered firing at the people after blocking the narrow road for exit.

Apology alone is not sufficient. General compensation should be given to India. Further, all the historic and valuable antiques, including Kohinoor diamond looted by the British should be returned to India. The government of India should take necessary steps for the same.
