British Atrocity - 2
A collage by Shrikant Apte
During 1857, the number of persons that British put to death without any trial was so large that they had no time or patience to follow even the basic human norms. They wanted to create terror in the minds of Indian people. Executions were, hence, carried out in public in village squares and without any verification about guilt of the persons being hanged.
Commonly known as kachhi phansi (hanging in raw manner) British officers rounded up suspects from villages and hanged them by trees in the villages.
Will the present generation of British apologize for what was done to innocent Indians?
