Archbishop of Canterbury apologizes for 1919 India massacre

The archbishop of Canterbury said Tuesday he regrets a massacre by British colonial forces of hundreds of Indians during a peaceful demonstration for independence 100 years ago. Archbishop Justin Welby was attending a memorial for victims of the attack in northwest India. The massacre took place at Jallianwala Bagh in Amritsar on April 13, 1919, killing more than 300 and injuring 1,200.

Was he responsible for the massacre? Did he participate in the massacre? If not, then why is he apologizing?
