Pant, Gambhir, Yuvraj, Others Pay Tribute to War Heroes on Kargil Vijay Diwas 2022 – SportsMediaz


Kargil Vijay Diwas is commemorated on 26 July every year to mark India’s victory over Pakistan in the Kargil war. Indian forces ousted Pakistan’s defence from mountain tops of the Kargil district in Ladakh, on this very day back in 1999 bringing the War to an official end. The occasion is intended to honour the fallen War Heroes and has been observed ever since.

On Tuesday, as India commemorates 23 years of its victory over Pakistan in the Kargil War of 1999, the country’s cricket fraternity took to Twitter, honouring the martyrs with heartfelt messages.

Rishabh Pant, Yuvraj Singh, Gautham Gambhir, V.V.S Laxman and Robin Uthappa among several other prominent Indian cricketers shared messages extending their support as a tribute to the fallen heroes.

The Kargil war began on May 8, 1999, in the Kargil district and other flashpoints along the LoC after Pakistani troops infiltrated India. Months before the war, the intruders had crossed into Indian territory across the LoC and occupied fortified defences overlooking the NH 1A in Kargil’s Drass and Batalik Sectors of Ladakh region with a nefarious aim of dominating all military and civil movement on the highway.
