Description

In 1957 a curious piece of clemency took place in Britain, Gurdial Singh, a Sikh sailor in Southampton, was convicted, in rather dubious circumstances, of the robbery and murder of a junk-shop proprietress. He was sentenced to death, still insisting he was innocent, and his appeal was dismissed. Two days before Singh was due to hang, a reprieve was granted. No explanation for it was made. Could there have been a pricking of British political consciences? Seventeen years earlier a Sikh was hanged at Pentonville – and he should probably have been spared on the ground of insanity. For Udham Singh was a survivor of the Amritsar Massacre of 1919, and grew up tormented by the desire for revenge.
