Honour British scribe, Kalia writes to Prez


Honour British scribe, Kalia writes to Prez

Tribune News Service

Jalandhar, April 11

BJP leader Manoranjan Kalia, former minister of the state, has written to President Ram Nath Kovind, demanding a civil honour posthumously for British journalist Benjamin Guy Horniman (1873-1948) to mark the centenary of the Jallianwala Bagh massacre.

Horniman, editor of newspaper "The Bombay Chronicle", was among those who sided with the oppressed and narrated the truth of the massacre by defying the brutal British Censorship in 1919. He had to undergo a two-year RI.

The paper had to suspend its publication and Horniman was deported to Britain. Horniman successfully smuggled photographs of the massacre and its aftermath and broke stories in the Daily Herald in Britain to tell the truth of the massacre to the British people.
