This day is celebrated in entire India for the success of operation Vijay.  In 1999, there was a war between India and Pakistan. The war took approximately 60 days and finally on 26th July 1999, the Indian army successfully took over the commands of all the points which were taken by the Pakistan infiltrators. India is celebrated the Kargil Vijay Diwas for the honor of the martyred soldiers in Kargil war.

History of Kargil Vijay Diwas

Kargil is a city situated in the Ladakh region of Jammu and Kashmir of India. In the winter season, the temperature of Kargil drops close to -48 degree. There were many military conflicts between India and Pakistan after the 1971 war. Tension was increased in India due to several separatist activities and the nuclear test in both the countries. To reduce the tension and stress in the both the countries, Lahore declaration was signed in February 1999 between the two countries. The main objective of this document was to solve the Kashmir problem peacefully through bilateral talks but at the same time, the Pakistani military was planning to invade into the boundary of India.

During the winter season of years of 1998-99, Pakistani armed forces invaded in the line of control of Indian side. The code name of this infiltration was “Operation Badr”.  The main aim of Pakistani armed force was to break the link between Kashmir and Ladakh and remove the Indian Army from the Siachen Glacier.  Pakistan was also trying to make the Kashmir issue as an international issue. After getting the information of infiltration, Indian army started the operation with the code name of “Operation Vijay” and 2 Lakhs soldiers were sent under the operation. This war officially ended on July 26, 1999 and India recaptured all its posts.

During this war, 527 soldiers sacrificed their lives.

What is Operation Vijay?

The Kargil Vijay Diwas is celebrated on the success of Operation Vijay. This war took place in the month of May and June of 1999 and the main cause of this war was the penetration of Pakistani soldiers to the Indian Territory.  The war started when the shepherd lived in boarder area saw the movement of Pakistani soldiers in the LOC of Indian Territory. The shepherd informed the Indian military and to verify it, a team led by Capt Saurabh Kalia was sent to the location. Unfortunately, Pakistani soldiers attacked the team and brutally killed the Indian soldiers. This incident outraged the Indian military and they started Operation Vijay. With the support of Indian air force, Indian army took over the all of the infiltrated site.

Conclusion

At the end of this post, I would like to make a point that war is not the solution to any problem. Whenever any war occurs, it causes a huge loss of money, manpower, and other resources of the entire nation involved in the fight. India is a great nation and we always believe in world peace and no war.

On the great day of Kargil Vijay Diwas, we must remember all our soldiers who had given their lives to safeguard our nation from alien forces. I would like to salute our Indian army from the bottom of my heart who always stand for us in every difficult situation.

A Special quote for our great soldiers “EAST OR WEST, OUR SOLDIERS ARE BEST”
