Of course, there's no context to Mayor Khan's appeal, or it would seem accuracy. The soldiers deployed at the Jallianwalla Bagh were Gurkhas. Agitators in the crowd were stirring it up and it was pressing forward pinning the soldiers against the far wall of the square with no escape. The firing was after warnings to the crowd (this was still in the era of the mentality of the Riot Act). The context was agitation in the Punjab by Gandhi (the Saint) as a result of which two European women were murdered. In 1919 most people - Punjabi Sikhs, Hindus, and Muslims, and British Indians knew of the atrocities committed during the Indian Mutiny as it was within living memory (1857 was 62 years earlier), and the whole province was terrified of a repeat. Whether Dyer and O'Dwyer were justified in their actions needs a dispassionate review, not shit-stirring by a Cultural Marxist on the make.
