Salutations to these martyrs… Who dedicated their lives to the country
Kargil Vijay Diwas is celebrated every year in memory of the brave sons of the country who sacrificed their lives in liberating the high peaks of Kargil from the occupation of Pakistan. Kargil Vijay Diwas is celebrated annually on July 26 to commemorate India’s victory over Pakistan in the Kargil War in 1999. At the time of the war, the Indian army drove out the Pakistani intruders and successfully captured Tiger Hills and other outposts as part of “Operation Vijay.”
The battle with the Pakistani army continued for more than 60 days at Kargil in Ladakh and in the end India won the war. Every year on this day, we also pay tribute to the hundreds of Indian army soldiers who were martyred in the war started by Pakistan. Several programs are also held across the country to commemorate the contribution of the Indian Armed Forces.
Kargil War History: Since the Indo-Pakistani war of 1971, there have been many armed wars between the two countries. In 1998, nuclear tests were conducted by both countries. The Lahore Declaration also promised a peaceful solution to the Kashmir issue, which the two countries signed in February 1999 to defuse the situation. The Pakistani infiltration into Indian Territory through the Line of Control has also been named Operation Badr. Its purpose was to sever ties between Kashmir and Ladakh, forcing India to settle the Kashmir dispute.
Indian government launched ‘Operation Vijay’ in response and mobilized 2 lakh of Indian Army for a long battle of about 2 months. The war took place in the Kargil district of Jammu and Kashmir between May and July 1999. It is said that General Pervez Musharraf, head of the Pakistani army at the time, also planned the war without informing the Prime Minister at the time, Nawaz. Cherif.
Information contributions from local shepherds have helped: Initially, Pakistan took over the Indian-controlled regions of Kashmir. In the second phase of the war, India responded by capturing the first strategic transport routes. The Indian army was able to identify the points of the attack based on intelligence provided by local herdsmen. In the last phase, the Indian Army, with the help of the Indian Air Force, concluded the war in the last week of July.
The Pakistani army was also involved in the Kargil War. However, Pakistan has always denied this. But during and after the war, many such facts were brought to light, which was enough to prove that the Pakistani army had helped the intruders. Reports indicate that Nawaz Sharif also traveled from the United States to Washington for help. But at that time, US President Bill Clinton refused to help Pakistan.
