"KARGIL DIWAS. WHAT IS THIS?," ASKS THE CONFUSED SUPREME COMMANDER OF PARTITIONED INDIA.
The First Lady of Hindusthan, too, brought in from Italy for want of native talent, wisdom, patriotism and beauty available in Bharat, is confused. She is normally used to hearing of "Nehru Diwas", "Indira Diwas", and "Rajiv Diwas". So she asks angrily, "Who are the people behind this MISCHIEF that goes against the spirit of our Samjhauta Expres? I was never informed!", she protested.
The trembling “Raksha Mantri” pleads ignorance but promises to investigate. Obviously, Madam regards this as diminishing, or dividing, the SHINE thrown on the GANDHI DYNASTY so far. It also goes "against the Gandhian grain" by highlighting the army in national politics.
THE EX SERVICEMEN & WOMEN (PENSIONERS) in India have given the brave call to celebrate “KARGIL DIWAS”, stating, (Quote) “On this day, 26 July 1999, India successfully took command of the high outposts which had been lost to Pakistani intruders. The Kargil war (sic) was fought for more than 60 days, and ended on 26 July and resulted in the loss of life on both sides, India and Pakistan.
Pakistan retreated after international diplomatic pressure. (MEANING, NOT INDIA'S OWN NATIVE FIGHTING FORCES THAT OUGHT TO HAVE DROPPED PARATROOPERS BEHIND THE PAKISTANI LINES TO END THE BATTLE MUCH SOONER!)
The strategy of that “war” was the brainchild of Gen Musharraf and the Indian tactics were “courtesy” of the BABOOS.
Crushing defeat of the ENEMY worth celebrating, would have been BOMBING THE BASES INSIDE PAKISTAN, RECOVERY OF ALL OF NORTH KASHMIR AND BOMBING OF ISLAMABAD. That would have been VICTORY worth celebrating.
No one can stop the ex-servicemen having celebratory functions that will not be attended by the Supreme Commander and the First Lady.
The report continues:
In all 527 All Ranks from Indian Armed Forces sacrificed their lives during the war.
OUR COMMENT: Frankly, the last battle worth celebrating by the whole nation with pride and joy was the CAPTURE OF KHYBER PASS. This is what Wikipedia writes about Khyber Pass and its capture by SIKH army:
“Well known invasions of the area have been predominantly through the Khyber Pass, such as the invasions by Darius I and Alexander the Great and also include Genghis Khan and later Mongols such as Duwa, Qutlugh Khwaja and Kebek. Among the Muslim invasions of South Asia, the famous invaders coming through the Khyber Pass are the Afghans such as Mahmud Ghaznavi, Muhammad Ghori and the Turkic-Mongols. Finally, Sikhs under Ranjit Singh, in 1798 captured the Khyber Pass. Hari Singh Nalwa, who manned the Khyber pass for years became a household name in Afghanistan. (Unquote)
The STRATEGIC gain of Gen Hari Singh Nalwa's OUTSTANDING victory to our side were tremendous. India's FRONTIER extended beyond the Khyber Pass. Muslim invaders never again dared to invade Bharat.
So, dear (pathetic) Supreme Commander, first of all, launch an investigation as to WHY prime minister Indira Gandhi (real name after nikah: “Maimoona Begum”) tried to destroy that fighting spirit of the Sikhs by attacking Golden Temple in Amritsar in June 1984 and turning the building into a ruin like the ruins of the historic Temple in Ayodha?
You, Mr Supreme Commander, need to achieve something substantial like recovering North Kashmir or East Bengal. Choose a General who will become a "HOUSEHOLD NAME IN PAKISTAN".
Your Jawans are telling you all the time, “Supreme Commander, trust us. We are capable of matching the VICTORY that was achieved by Gen Hari Singh Nalwa by defeating the AFGHANS, even crushing Pakistan to recreate the AKHAND BHARAT of your “Bapu” who lacked courage to proceed beyond his empty words.
Trust yourself first, Mr. Supreme Commander, before you can trust us. PLEASE HAVE A HEART TRANSPLANT TO REPLACE THE GOAT'S HEART BY A TIGER'S HEART in your body!”
