What happened on this day?

The British government passed and enforced the Rowlatt Act in India shortly after World War I ended. It gave the government the authority to imprison or detain anyone suspected of committing seditious acts without a trial. Indians were enraged as a result of the act.

On April 10, 1919, two nationalist leaders, Dr. Saifuddin Kitchlew and Dr. Satya Pal, were imprisoned in Punjab under the draconian Rowlatt Act. In anticipation of protests in response to their arrests, the British outlawed public gatherings, but they never made a public declaration about it. People assembled in a park in Amritsar three days later, on April 13, 1919, to protest the arrests. Men, women, and children took part in the peaceful protest. The Jalllianwala Bagh was the location of their gathering. The innocent lives had no idea what disaster was about to befall them.
