Correct Answer : Jallianwalla Bagh massacre
Question Asked : IAS (Pre) 2001
Explanation : The Government established a Disorders Inquiry Committee headed by Lord William Hunter, a Senator of College of Justice of Scotland. The Committee had 7 members 4 British and 3 Indians. It was set up to investigate the Jallianwala Bagh Tragedy. Before the Committee could publish its report, Congress put forward its view. This view criticized Dyer’s act as inhuman and also said that there was no justification in the introduction of the martial law in Punjab. But the Hunter Report, as expected saw the things differently. Although it condemned most of the decisions taken by General Dyer, it agreed with the imposition of the martial law in Punjab. It also criticized the method of Satyagraha adopted by Gandhi and held Gandhi partially responsible for “deteriorated” law and order situation. As a result, Dyer was sent to England, relieved of his command. British Government called General Dyer ‘Lion of British Empire’ and gave’ Sword of Honour’ for his service.
