Kargil Vijay Diwas Story: The nation is celebrating Kargil Vijay Diwas today (July 26). 23 years ago on this day, India defeated the Pakistani army and Kargil Vijay Diwas is observed annually on July 26. It has been 23 years since the Kargil war, but do you know that along with the Indian Army, the people of Dras Valley of Jammu and Kashmir also played a significant part in the conflict and helped Pakistan learn a lesson. These are the same people whom it would not be wrong to call civilian soldiers. Today we introduce you to two such people who fought this war shoulder to shoulder with the Indian Army. Even though he may not have wielded weapons, his role in the war has not worked with any soldier.
Yaar Mohammad Khan gave the first news of Pakistani action
Yar Mohammad Khan, a resident of Mashku Valley, located in Daman of Tiger Hill, eight kilometers from the Drass Valley of Jammu and Kashmir, gave the first news of Pakistan’s nefarious activities to the Indian Army. 65-year-old Yar Mohammad was the first resident to inform the army that the Pakistani army’s action was at its peak. He also gave evidence as well. Yaar Mohammad showed the army commander two packets of cigarettes, which were made in Pakistan.
Yar Mohammad informed the Indian Army about the action of the Pakistani Army on 8 May. In addition, Yar Mohammad Khan helped the Indian Army to conquer Tiger Hill and Batra Top, with eight Sikh and 18 Grenadiers regiments reaching Drass. He guided the soldiers reaching the Dras Valley for the first time to visit these two hills and the Indian Army conquered both these pick tops.
Naseem Ahmed kept feeding Indian soldiers
When the war started in the Dras valley, all the people were driven out. Apart from the soldiers of the Indian Army, very few people were left there and one of them was Naseem Ahmed, a resident of Dras Valley. Naseem Ahmed was running a small dhaba in Dras Bazar. In that dhaba, Naseem continued to feed the soldiers of the Indian Army living in Dras among the gunpowder. Apart from these two civilian soldiers, dozens of youths played a role in the war in their own way to save the honor of the country in Dras and Kargil.
Why is Kargil Vijay Diwas celebrated?
Kargil Vijay Diwas is observed annually on July 26. In fact, in the year 1999, Pakistani infiltrators and soldiers secretly entered the hills of Kargil. Against this infiltration, the Indian Army launched ‘Operation Vijay’ and killed every infiltrator or forced them to flee. Operation Vijay was deemed a total success on July 26, 1999, when the Indian Army entirely liberated the Kargil heights from the grasp of invaders. The Kargil War ended 23 years ago, and this year marks the 23rd anniversary of Kargil Vijay Diwas.
