1/n
@realDonaldTrump @narendramodi 👉Post independence in 1950s-60s, #GoodRelations

✓There was an expansive technology cooperation b/w India-US
✓while US helped us in #IIT & Technology, #Russia was helping us in building Dams, WE WERE HAVING BEST OF BOTH THE WORLDS
✓Ind-US cooperation in Nuclear tech too

2/n
@realDonaldTrump @narendramodi 👉Nehru to Indira from Idealism to Realism

✓ while Nehru didn't take any advantage of the US relations when they were at its peak, even gifted the UNSC seat to China

✓ Indira Gandhi moved unmistakably in soviet block

The relations totally deteriorated evident in 1971

Its #KargilVijayDiwas today

Do you have any street, junction, stadium, learning or sports center in your city names after martyrs of Kargil conflict?

A total of 522 Jawans martyred in 1999 including 22 officers

A total of 1754 Jawans martyred up to 2002 including 108 officers
Few know that ABV led NDA govt decisively failed on many fronts during the #Kargil conflict

Yes, India won the conflict

But we paid a huge price

Govt grossly underreported the death of soldiers and officers during the conflict and only shared full figures in 2002
The conflict went on for over 2 months

It was an occupation of Indian territory by Pakistan but PM Atal hesitated to declare war

Even when India finally reclaimed the lost territories, Indian Army was not allowed to cross LoC and hunt down the enemy

Though #Pakistan was created on religious line, #Jinnah was most liberal Muslim who never wanted #Pakistan a religious firm!
Till 1977 , Religion was just a personal choice in #Pakistan , General #Zia not only pushed religion but also took country decades backward !
#SZAB
Zia knew he had zero support from People hence he decided to take support from Mullahs and he ensured that hardcore Islam penetrate each institution in #Pakistan including #Army & #ISI !
#Soviet invaded #Afghanistan in 1979, #Zia used this opportunity to the fullest .
#US wanted to work on Proxy war, Zia got excellent platform to build these Proxies in Madrassa's of Pakistan.
