The Kargil conflict was flight between India and Pakistan between May and July 1999 in the Kargil sector of Kashmir and elsewhere along the Line of Control (LoC).
People did not just salute the fearless sacrifices of the soldiers, one of the Twitter users even took to Twitter to share the heartwarming picture of his father - an army official - who was a part of the Kargil war.
Mr Modi said, "Kargil Vijay Diwas reminds us of India's military prowess and the great sacrifices our armed forces make while steadfastly keeping India safe". The war took place in Jammu & Kashmir and the fighting lasted for three months in the high altitude.
However, 527 Indian bravehearts were martyred in the battle. He was speaking at the 18th Kargil Vijay Diwas celebration in Lucknow. The Vijay Diwas is celebrated in Kargil's Dras sector and in the national capital. According to ANI, Adityanath said, "26 July 1999 ko sena ne Pak ko peeche hatne pe majboor kiya tha".
The day, also marked as Shaurya Diwas, commemorates the soldiers who laid their lives during the Kargil War. India must stand by our forces. As can be inferred from the duration of the movie, it is the most accurate, heart- touching and thrilling depiction of the struggles of Indian soldiers at Kargil and their efforts to bring down the Pakistani intruders.
