The Amritsar Massacre was when a group of people in India herd what Gandhi was doing and decided to do the same. In this case they had a meeting in a closed place. The military came in and closed off all the doors. When the military asked the group to stop and clear out, they didn't listen. The military started shooting and since all the doors were closed there was no where for anyone to run. they killed woman children and men that day.
