Just before 19-year-old Jaswant Singh Chail jumped the security fence at Windsor Castle fashioned with a crossbow. The supposed assassin uploaded a chilling video giving the reasons behind his attempts to assassinate the Queen of England.
Not wanting to expose his true identity, Chail used several protocols to make sure the video would be hard to decipher. First, he wore a hoodie and mask to hide his face and ethnicity. Then he even went as far as to use a voice distorter to make that those who might know him wouldn’t be able to make the connection.
Although the video below is unnerving given the lengths the 19-year-old went to, in the end, Chail never even made it into the building. Still, he claimed his assassination attempt was due to the Jallianwala Bagh massacre. “I’m sorry. I’m sorry for what I’ve done and what I will do. I will attempt to assassinate Elizabeth, Queen of the Royal Family. This is revenge for those who have died in the 1919 Jallianwala Bagh massacre.” He would add, “[The assassination] is also revenge for those who have been killed, humiliated, and discriminated on because of their race. I’m an Indian Sikh, a Sith.”

Not being able to enter the building and the police already on high alert, Chail was quickly detained, and according to a police report, “The man was taken into custody and has undergone a mental health assessment — he has since been sectioned under the Mental Health Act and remains in the care of medical professionals.”
Chail’s parents were shocked to learn the news, saying, “Something’s gone horribly wrong with our son, and we are trying to figure out what.”
For those who might be unaware, the Britannica gives a detailed description of The Jallianwala Bagh massacre that took place on April 13, 1919. Hundreds of people died and hundreds more wounded when “British troops fired on a large crowd of unarmed Indians in an open space known as the Jallianwala Bagh…in the Punjab region.”
