Kargil Vijay Diwas commemorates the triumphant end of the revered Kargil War, which transpired between May and July of the year 1999. The conflict arose when Pakistani troops took advantage of the rough terrain and adverse weather conditions to penetrate Indian territory in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kargil area. What followed was a violent and furious struggle that put the Indian soldiers’ fortitude and perseverance to the ultimate test to protect their motherland.

What Is Operation Vijay? How Did It Play a Major Role in the Kargil War?

The Indian Army launched “Operation Vijay” on May 3, 1999, following the first infiltration report from the locals. The objective of Operation Vijay was to retake Indian territory that Pakistani spies had invaded along the LoC (Line of Control). To support the armed forces, the Indian Air Force carried out an airstrike on May 26 as part of Operation “Safed Sagar.” They displayed extraordinary bravery and tactical expertise while facing some difficult challenges. To recapture the important summits, the gallant Indian soldiers fought valiantly and unceasingly while traveling through perilous slopes and battling foes.
