    National Geographic Documentary about IC 814 Hijack

    Indian Airlines Flight 814 commonly known as IC 814 was an Indian Airlines Airbus A300 en route from Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu, Nepal to Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi, India on Friday, December 24, 1999, when it was hijacked. Harkat-ul-Mujahideen, a Pakistan-based group, was accused for the hijacking.
    The aircraft was hijacked by gunmen shortly after it entered Indian airspace at about 17:30 IST. After touching down in Amritsar, Lahore and Dubai, the hijackers forced the aircraft to land in Kandahar, Afghanistan. The hijackers released 27 of 176 passengers in Dubai but fatally stabbed one andwounded several others.
    India's lack of recognition of the Taliban regime in Afghanistan complicated negotiations between Indian authorities and the hijackers. Taliban moved its well-armed fighters near the hijacked aircraft in an attempt to prevent Indian special forces from storming the aircraft. The hijacking lasted for seven days and ended after India released three militants — Mushtaq Ahmed Zargar, Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh and Maulana Masood Azhar.

    BJP made a Master Stroke that time, considering for a new government in sanctions for nuclear weapons testing, just had a War!

    Not a Single Person was killed in the Operation except one who died due to his own stupidity.

    From 7 Terrorists, They successfully Negotiated to Release 3.

    Got an Air Base in Tajikistan.

    You know their is just a thin line between Bravery and stupidity....if he would have been succesful in doing what he wanted to do then most probably our Govt would have honoured him with some award on 26 January....its just that he failed that's why people like you are calling him stupid....Remember one thiing none of us know what was in his mind at that time....At times when most of the people was just trying to save their a$$ he was the only person who tried to take the fight to the opponent

    No way, India should not negotiate with terrorists and the terrorists India released went to to plan and commit countless terror crimes that killed more than the number of hostages in the plane many times over.

    IC814 was a momentous set back for L.K.Advani and a huge mark on his tough guy attitude that he likes to show. They made free Maulana Masood Azhar who went on to found his own terror group HuJI with a known strength of 2000 heads up until couple of years ago.

    The no of lives lost in this fiasco == Almost all the jawans killed in Kashmir between 2001 to 2005. That was the time when that group was on a rampage.

    Thats easier for you to say, but GoI also had responsibility towards the passengers in aircraft, whose relatives was demonstrating in front of Govt offices in Delhi for letting the terrorists go and they were given wide coverage by both national and international media. Commando operation was out of the question as Pakistan could have very well alerted the Taliban about any such move, so the only option was to let the bad guys go...but as said earlier we reduced it to 3.
    Even Israel, which has an uncompromising stand towards terrorists, exchanged 1000 Palestinians for a single Israeli soldier.

    Thats an insensitive statement. From what I heard he was killed bcs the terrorists suspected him of being the sky marshall.

    The released terrorists
    Mushtaq Ahmed Zargar,: Was involved in rubia saeed kidnapping. He was released from jail on December 31, 1999 as part of the Indian Airlines Flight 814 hostage deal and provided safe passage to Pakistan.[3] Immediately after his release, Zargar renewed the activity of Al-Umar Mujahideen in Muzaffarabad, close to the LOC (Line of Control), in recruiting and training of young Muslims in Indian part of Kashmir:

    [​IMG]

    Maulana Masood Azhar : Azhar was born in Bahawalpur on July 10, 1968 as one of ten siblings, Shortly after his release, Azhar made a public address to an estimated 10,000 people in Karachi. He proclaimed, "I have come here because this is my duty to tell you that Muslims should not rest in peace until we have destroyed America and India."

    He addressed 10,000, These number of people gathered to meet a terrorist who was released in exchange of unarmed passengers? I feel very much ashamed! India should have fired a missile towards that gathering.... Indian politicians are cowards... If the Israel was in that situation then things would have been extremely different!

    So much for peace with Pakistan!
