He is right on his part being diplomatic about it as it would be a big political risk for him to have apologised for it as he would have suffered a backlash when back home!!

He has despised the incident and that is enough.
He or the present generation has not done anything wrong in this issue. Even in those days most British people did not support the action and the general Dyre (name not sure) was subject to trail by their government.

He has said: "Its wrong to reach in the past and seek things for which we should apologise".
I think he is right.
Otherwise there are so many things for which we will have to keep on tendering apology all the time. Like apology to the lower castes for atrocities on them for ages. Or Scheduled Castes apologising for letting the Reservation to continue beyond stipulated 10 year period (affecting lots of deserving people's careers).
Or Muslims to apologise for demolishing Temples and forcefully converting Hindus to Islam.
Or Christians for converting Hindus to Christianity.
Or Hindus for desecrating Churches and Mosques.
Or Narendra Modi for massacring thousands of Muslims of Gujarat.
Or Congress for organising genocide of Sikhs in 1984 in Delhi and other places.
There will be no end to it. He has mentioned as a shameful blot on British History. He has also said Churchil termed it as Monstrous. It would not be right on our part to force others to do things OUR WAY. What we ...more

I think he has adequately handled the issue.
This is sensible politics
He knows that whatever his ancestors did a century ago, has no bearing on the changed scenario of today. So it makes more sense to gain good will of Indians through some gestures and earn some political as well as commercial mileage for his country

But he regretted it. Our own politicians likes of Sajjan Kumar, Jagdish Tytler & Modi didn't apologies for the massacre of our own people, how can we expect him to do so?
