Kargil Vijay Diwas 2022: a day to celebrate India’s remarkable victory in the Kargil War

Every year, July 26 is celebrated as Kargil Vijay Diwas all over India. This day honors the selfless sacrifices made by the Indian Army in the 1999 Kargil War against Pakistani soldiers .

26th July is a historic day in India and a day of immense pride for all Indians. On 1999’s July 26, our valiant soldiers achieved their victory over the Pakistani Army and reestablished India’s hold on Kargil

Even if the Pakistani army had the advantage of being positioned at much higher altitudes than the Indian troops, Indian armed men succeeded in conquering the peaks and forcing the Pak army to withdraw.

After three months of armed battles, the Indian soldiers recaptured the peaks illegally occupied by the Pak army and hoisted the Indian flag in the icy peaks of Kargil.

23 years have passed since the Indian Army’s extraordinary victory in freeing Kargil from the clutches of Pakistani troops and we observe Kargil Vijay Diwas annually on 26th July.

As per records, India lost 527 soldiers and the loss is irreparable. The heroic sacrifices of those Indian patriots and the ones that could return to their families after the war ended deserve to be remembered.
