Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby on Tuesday visited Jallianwala Bagh memorial and said that he was both ‘ashamed and sorry’ for the crime which was committed at that site in 1919.
Welby also lied on the floor of the memorial after reading out a prayer to God to seek forgiveness.
While paying homage at the Jallianwala Bagh memorial, Welby said, “I cannot speak for the British Government. I am not the official of the government but can speak in the name of Christ. It is a place for sin and redemption. You have remembered what they have done and their memory will live.”
