Kargil Vijay Diwas:26 July 1999

Kargil War – Vijay Diwas 26th July 1999

Our brave heart soldiers ❤ martyred and allowed us to celebrate the country’s victory as a Vijay Diwas 26th July. In the toughest battlefields they fought for us and happily laid their lives for their country men. Kargil War, the name of the district whether this battle was fought. How a neighbour can betray you, can easily be learned from Pakistan. One side they were extending their hands for friendship and by the other hand they were making conspiracy of defeating their partner. On 21st February 1999, our honorary PM Late Atal Bihari Vajpayee visited Pakistan in bus and counter partner Nawaz Shareef greeted and welcomed him. The moto was to develop peace between two countries. Then signed Lahore Declaration which was a bilateral agreement and governance treaty between India and Pakistan and the same year the treaty was ratified. The highlights of the Declaration was

1.. Mutual understanding towards the development of atomic arsenals and to avoid accidental and unauthorised operational use of nuclear weapons

2.. To avoid conventional and non conventional conflicts

3.. Solve all disputes including Kashmir, Peacefully

4.. Confidence Building Measures such as if any tests will be conducted between 2 countries they had to intimate each other before proceeding the test

But Pakistan deceived India.. How?.. The Kargil Drass area where high peaks of above 4500 metres covered with snow and has minus temperatures even in the summers. Here both India and Pakistan had their army posts but as per mutual understanding during winters both country’s army return to their locations and then in summers ie in May again the armies regain their posts. But in 1999, Pakistan left the posts in December but they came very early in the month of February and acquired the posts of the India also and trespassed LOC line of control. The reason behind this was to block the highway 1D which connects Srinagar to Leh. As kargil plus Leh makes complete Ladhakh district. If this 1D highway was disconnected the supply of essential commodities and arsenals can’t be reached to Siachin Glacier where Indian army posts exist. So Pakistan thought by this way we can bring India to one table and Kashmir issue can be resolved in Pakistan’s favour. Yet Our Indian forces failed their planning in a very efficient manner. When shepherds of Indian side noticed the presence of Pakistan in the higher reaches of Kargil they informed Indian army and this provoked our Army and then they had initiated Operation Vijay.
Our Indian army fought against the Pakistan’s in the night because we were at the lower position while Pakistan’s soldiers were at higher reaches yet our soldiers proved braveness and occupied the posts which were illegally occupied by the enemy. Our army seeked help of USA to provide GPS so that positions of the enemy can be determined but they denied. Israel enabled us and provided us arsenals and UFA ie drones. The war had taken place for 40 days and on 26th July, 1999 India won and Pakistan surrendered. At the initial days of the war Pakistan claimed that the attackers didn’t belong to Pakistan but they were kashmir freedom fighters fighting for the independence of the Kashmir but eventually Pakistan accepted. Even at the end of the war, Pakistan didn’t accepted the bodies of their martyred soldiers. Every country of the world criticised Pakistan. All Western countries first time in the history supported India. This war brought tensions to the neighbouring country and even General Parveez Musharaf staged Coup d’e’tat against Nawaz Shareef and became President and military started controlling the nation. Their blame game had been started. There was a huge backlash in Pakistan over Kargil Blunder.

ऐ मेरे वतन के लोगों
तुम खूब लगा लो नारा
ये शुभ दिन है हम सब का
लहरा लो तिरंगा प्यारा
पर मत भूलो सीमा पर
वीरों ने है प्राण गँवाए
कुछ याद उन्हें भी कर लो
कुछ याद उन्हें भी कर लो
जो लौट के घर ना आये
जो लौट के घर ना आये
ऐ मेरे वतन के लोगों
ज़रा आँख में भर लो पानी
जो शहीद हुए हैं उनकी
ज़रा याद करो क़ुरबानी
ऐ मेरे वतन के लोगों
ज़रा आँख में भर लो पानी
जो शहीद हुए हैं उनकी
ज़रा याद करो क़ुरबानी
तुम भूल ना जाओ उनको
इसलिए सुनो ये कहानी
जो शहीद हुए हैं उनकी
ज़रा याद करो क़ुरबानी
जब घायल हुआ हिमालय
खतरे में पड़ी आज़ादी
जब तक थी साँस लड़े वो
जब तक थी साँस लड़े वो
फिर अपनी लाश बिछा दी
संगीन पे धर कर माथा
सो गये अमर बलिदानी
जो शहीद हुए हैं उनकी
ज़रा याद करो क़ुरबानी
जब देश में थी दीवाली
वो खेल रहे थे होली
जब हम बैठे थे घरों में
जब हम बैठे थे घरों में
वो झेल रहे थे गोली
थे धन्य जवान वो अपने
थी धन्य…
