21 years ago, #IndianArmy did what no other army could dream of and won #KargilWar against all odds

But the bravest have not got justice. Dr N.K.Kalia has worked tirelessly to get justice for his son Capt Saurabh Kalia. For 22 days, Captain Kalia...


and his 5 veer Jats were tortured by Pakistani army: teeth and bones shattered, eardrums burst with iron rods, puncturing eyes before removal, cutting off of lips, private organs and limbs. But they did not give any information

Never forgive, underestimate the barbarians

But saddest part is the Indian Government has not been able to give justice to these mahavirs. None of them have been given gallantry awards despite such bravery under torture

Successive governments have not taken Pak to task. Dr NK Kalia has been fighting a lonely battle

कारगिल युद्ध को जम्मू-कश्मीर के कारगिल सेक्टर में लाइन ऑफ कंट्रोल के किनारे, 1999 के मई-जुलाई के दौरान लड़ा गया था। इस युद्व में भारतीय सेना ने पाकिस्तान के 3 हजार सैनिकों को मार गिराया था। यह युद्ध 18 हजार फीट की ऊंचाई पर लड़ा गया था।
कारगिल युद्ध के दौरान भारतीय सेना को कई बड़ी मुश्किलों का सामना करना पड़ा था। पाकिस्तानी सैनिक ऊंची पहाड़ियों पर थे जबकि हमारे सैनिकों को गहरी खाई में रहकर उनसे मुकाबला करना था। भारतीय जवानों को आड़ लेकर या रात में चढ़ाई कर ऊपर पहुंचना पड़ रहा था, जोकि बहुत जोखिमपूर्ण था।
कारगिल युद्ध 60 दिनों तक चला और अंततः 26 जुलाई 1999 को पाकिस्तान को मुंह की खानी पड़ी। भारत में युद्ध में विजय पताका फहराई और देश के स्वाभिमान के इस प्रतीक को ‘ऑपरेशन विजय’ नाम दिया गया।

२१ वर्षांपूर्वी, २६ जुलै १९९९ रोजी भारताने पाकिस्तानी सैन्याने बळकावलेले अखेरचे भारतीय ठाणे पुन्हा काबीज केले #कारगिल युद्ध जिंकले. #कारगिल_विजय_दिवस त्याची थोडक्यात माहिती #Thread

हिवाळ्यात #कारगिल परिसर राहण्यासाठी अत्यंत प्रतिकूल होत असल्याने दोन्ही देशांचे सैनिक हिवाळ्यात खाली सुरक्षित जागी परतत. व उन्हाळ्यात पुन्हा आपल्या जागी येत. असा करार नसला तरी दोन्ही लष्करांनी ही बाब मान्य केली होती. मात्र, पाकिस्तानने त्याचा भंग केला.
काश्मीरला लडाखशी जोडणाऱ्या या एकमेव रस्त्यावर ताबा मिळविण्याचा पाकिस्तानचा उद्देश होता. ती सामरिकदृष्ट्या मोठी आघाडी ठरली असती. त्यासाठीच पाक लष्कराचे तत्कालिन प्रमुख जनरल #मुशर्रफ यांनी सुमारे ५० हजार सैनिक घुसखोरांच्या वेषात भारतीय हद्दीत धाडले

Brig Devinder Singh is a hero who was wronged.
Misrepresentation of his battle performance cost him a war medal and possibly led to his being passed over for promotion as Major-General. May have even missed a shot at becoming army chief because of internal politics. (Thread)
The Armed Forces Tribunal upheld claims that top commanders (including then GOC 15 Corps, Lt Gen Pal) falsified accounts of battles in the Batalik sector, where Brig Devinder Singh was operating and in command. Here's my report from May 2010 when the order was made public.
"In April 1999, Lieutenant-General Pal dismissed warnings emerging from a war game, which suggested that a Kargil-like intrusion could take place. Brigadier Singh played a key role in the war game; his appraisal was proved correct." - @praveenswami in 2010.
