Anita Anand at the House of Commons

Anita Anand at the House of Commons

In April 2019 we held a special Vaisakhi Event at the House of Commons, as part of our series of events in the run up to the Festival of Norfolk & Punjab.


We invited author, broadcaster and political journalist Anita Anand to talk about her new book The Patient Assassin, the remarkable story of one Indian’s twenty-year quest for revenge, taking him around the world in search of those he held responsible for the Amritsar massacre of 1919, which cost the lives of hundreds. The event was hosted by Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi MP and chaired by Mr Jagdev Singh Virdee MBE, Editor of the British Sikh Report.

Here are images of the event (held on our image archive on
