Kargil Vijay Diwas

Today is Kargil Vijay Diwas.

In 1999, our borders were breached by Pakistan and our security forces retaliated and restored control on our side of the border. Though our troops reached LoC, they exercised enormous amount of restraint and stopped themselves before LoC thereby expressing great respect to the international sentiments on LoC.

July 26, 1999 was the day victory was declared. Please take a moment and pay your respects to the Heroes who laid down their lives selflessly for our country.

Heres a piece from Satyameva Jayate Blog by B Shantanu paying tribute to our soldiers.

You can find complete war details from wikipedia. If interested, please do go through the war strategy used by India. This war saw some of the most brutal battles because of especially the Terrain which worked against our forces. Our soldiers bravely faced all the odds and secured our borders while GoI diplomatically brought confidence to our soldiers by making the International Community accept, with evidence, that India is defending its borders but not waging war against Pakistan.

Jai Hind
