It is very hard to know what event you are asking about here without having more context.  There are many events in history that are known to various people as "Bloody Sunday."

The one that sticks out most in my mind, that I think of right off, is the Bloody Sunday massacre that happened in Northern Ireland in 1972.,

Northern Ireland was a place of great violence because there were two factions, one which wanted to remain part of Great Britain, and one which wanted to be part of the Republic of Ireland.  The tensions were made worse by religion -- the faction that wanted to remain part of Britain was Protestant while the other was Catholic.

Bloody Sunday was a day in 1972 when a group of Catholic, non-violent protestors was attacked by soldiers from the British Army.  26 of the protestors died.
