This letter appears in today's Leicester Mercury:
No apology for mutiny massacre
After reading that the Sikh community has criticised our Prime Minister for failure to apologise for the massacre of Indians in 1919 ("PM criticised over failure to apologise for India atrocity", Mercury, February 21) it made me think.
Did we ever receive an apology from India for the massacre of hundreds of English women and children during the Indian Mutiny in 1857.
They were hacked to death and thrown into a well at Cawnpore?
They were so ashamed that they have changed its name to Kanpur.
