Kargil Vijay Diwas Quotes: Remembering The Martyrs

Also known as Operation Vijay, the Kargil War began in May 1999 and ended in July 1999. The war was fought between India and Pakistan. The war began after Pakistani troops trespassed on the Indian side of the line-of-control (LOC) by wearing Kashmiri attire. They went on to occupy the peaks in Kargil, which are held by the Indian army. The LOC is the border between the two countries and illegal crossing of the border is an offense.

The Indian Army responded by sending their brave soldiers on the high mountainous terrains to fight the Pakistani troops and take back the Indian posts. The Indian Air Force supported the mission, resulting in the successful recapture of the positions.

Operation Vijay was a success but around 500 Indian soldiers lost their lives while others were severely injured in this battle. The soldiers who laid down their lives to protect their motherland deserve to be remembered for their bravery. Thus, to pay tribute to those war heroes, every year Kargil Vijay Diwas is celebrated on 26 July, and it was on this day that the battle officially ended in 1999. The Kargil Vijay Diwas is celebrated in the Kargil-Dras sector of Jammu and Kashmir and the national capital New Delhi.

Let's remember the brave soldiers of India by reading and sharing these inspirational quotes.
