This is a day that will make every Indian proud for generations to come. India celebrates Kargil Vijay Diwas on July 26. It was on this day 21 years ago that the Indian Army recaptured all the Indian posts in Kargil that had been occupied by Pakistani infiltrators. The Indian Army, in a beautiful post today, told the country what happened a day before the ‘Operation Vijay’ achieved ultimate success.
On June 25, 1999, “The Indian Army launched a daring attack at Zulu Top in Muskoh Valley. Undaunted courage and unflinching determination of our troops led to successful capture of the objective”: the army posted on Twitter.
The army also remembered the Kargil War heroes who gave their lives for the country. “Operation Vijay is a saga of courage, valour and sacrifice of brave soldiers of the Indian Army. 26 July will be remembered for the determination and daring leadership and raw courage of our soldiers.” the army said.
In the history of independent India, the Kargil War will be remembered as the fiercest and the most valiant operations conducted by the Indian Army. 527 Indian soldiers gave their lives in the Kargil War.
