A Massacre and its Revenge
The story of a shameful day in Britain’s history and a globetrotting quest for revenge is recorded in TV and radio broadcaster Anita Anand’s The Patient Assassin. Fearing mutiny as Gandhi’s influence grew in 1919, British soldiers opened fire on thousands of unarmed Indian men, women and children in Amritsar. Most died, but 18 year old Udham Singh survived, swearing vengeance. Anand sheds light on this Indian cult figure and his devastating journey.
