    Modi to spend INR350m to mark 50th anniversary of 1965 Indo-Pak war

    NEW DELHI: The BJP-led Indian government is planning month-long celebrations with an overwhelming cost of INR350 million to honour soldiers who fought the 1965 war with Pakistan, India’s NDTV reported on Thursday.

    Citing government sources, the news outlet said the celebrations, starting from August 28, would include a mini parade at Rajpath, the Delhi boulevard that recently hosted a record-breaking yoga performance.

    The parade will be held on September 20, and will include, apart from a show of military might, a thrilling aerial display with commandos slithering down ropes from helicopters.

    The Modi government will emphatically celebrate the 1965 war as ‘India’s victory’ on the fiftieth anniversary of the 1965 Indo-Pak war.

    Meanwhile, some retired soldiers of the Indian army have already refused to attend the celebrations as they criticize the BJP government of not implementing the ‘One Rank One Pension bill’.

    “We will not attend any government function till OROP in implemented,” said Major General (retd) Satbir Singh of the Indian Ex-Servicemen Movement.

    The 1965 war started following Pakistan’s Operation Gibraltar, which was designed against the illegal Indian occupation of Jammu and Kashmir region.

    Both India and Pakistan claim victory to the seventeen-day war which caused thousands of casualties on both sides and also witnessed the largest tank battle since World War II.

    The hostilities between India and Pakistan ended after a ceasefire was declared following diplomatic intervention by the Soviet Union and USA and the subsequent issuance of the Tashkent Declaration.

    At least that Pakistani pilot who shot him down felt remorse for his actions:

    None of the sides won that war. Both sides captured each other's territory. Its called a stalemate but no victory.

    Modi has gone crazy:crazy:......1965 war cannot be regarded as indian victory and at best (for india) it was a stalemate.......One should not forget that that Pakistan army despite being outnumbered by 1:3 still more than held its own.And PAF literally shot IAF jets from the sky and achieved complete air superiority from the second day of combat.

    Losing much shorter land to the planned much larger land by defending it is a great victory.:pakistan::pakistan::pakistan:

    It was Pakistani victory, with virtually nothing still managing to successfully defend and humiliate a much bigger power in itself is great victory.

    If the whole idea behind war was "humiliating" India, Pakistan achieved it. Other than that it achieved nothing. Real borders remained unchanged. Kashmir issue remained on deadlock and a few years later, Pakistan failed to defend its Eastern Wing from Indian invasion :D :D :D

    We actually won the war in the battlefield but lost it on the table despite being at an advantage

    Yes, I agree. But we cannot change the history but only learn from it.
