The Kargil War, karagil jang, karagil yuddh, also known as the Kargil conflict, was an armed conflict between India and Pakistan that took place between May and July 1999 in the Kargil district of Kashmir and elsewhere along the Line of Control (LOC). The cause of the war was the infiltration of Pakistani soldiers and Kashmiri militants into positions on the Indian side of the LOC, which serves as the de facto border between the two states.

A two-day celebration to commemorate the Kargil war victory in 1999 began today in the Drass sector in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kargil district.

The celebrations began with a briefing on the ‘Operation Vijay’ at Umbala View Point, which provides a breath-taking view of the majestic Tiger Hill and other battle areas in the district, about 205 kms from here, officials said.

It was followed by a friendly polo match between ‘Ladakh Locals’ and ‘Ladakh Scouts Regimental Centre’ teams.

The officials said a host of events were being organised to pay tributes to those heroes who sacrificed their lives in the war 11 years ago.

The Bharatiya Jananta Party (BJP), Manipur Pradesh will observe “Kargil Vijay Divas” to remember the martyrs who lay down their lives in Kargil War on May 1999 on July 26 next at BJP’s head office, Nityaipat Chuthek, Imphal at 1 pm.

The BJP will observe Kargil Vijay Diwas across the country to revive memories of the 64-day long Kargil war to successfully liberate territories occupied by Pakistani forces on July 26, 1999.

Several programmes are scheduled to mark the Kargil Day on Monday. Defence Minister A.K. Antony and the three service chiefs will pay homage to the ‘Kargil martyrs’ at the Amar Jawan Jyoti on the occasion of Kargil Vijay Diwas around 9am on Monday.

More than 500 Indian soldiers were martyred in the Kargil war that lasted for two months.

On July 26, 1999 Indian victory on Pakistan completed. The ‘Operation Vijay’ was accomplished with the supreme sacrifices of our brave jawans.

In the Kargil War, Indian soldiers proved that why they are called best in the world. After some initial loses, Indian Army managed to gain control various heights quickly.

Both countries suffered greatly in the war. India lost its 527 men, 1363 were injured and 1 soldier was made prisoner of war.

Nearly 4,000 Pakistani soldiers were killed, 665 injured soldiers and 8 soldiers were made prisoner of war.

But after the 11 years, it seems that our ministers and politicians have forgotten the sacrifice of Indian Jawans. Still some martyrs’ families are waiting for the promised, made by the then government, to fulfill.

1999 Kargil Conflict

The 1999 Kargil War took place between May 8, when Pakistani forces and Kashmiri militants were detected atop the Kargil ridges and July 14 when both sides had essentially ceased their military operations. It is believed that the planning for the operation, by Pakistan, may have occurred about as early as the autumn of 1998.

By 30 June 1999 Indian forces were prepared for a major high-altitude offensive against Pakistani posts along the border in the disputed Kashmir region. Over the previous six weeks India had moved five infantry divisions, five independent brigades and 44 battalions of paramilitary troops to Kashmir. The total Indian troop strength in the region had reached 730,000. The build-up included the deployment of around 60 frontline aircraft.
