No one abandoned anyone. After Nawaz went to US and withdrawal agreement was signed, Pak Army and Mujahideen started withdrawing from Indian-held territory and Indian Army reclaimed the peaks. SIMPLE ..

musharaf was in power for 9 years after ouster of nawaz but he not again did such adventure if he was so much concerned about kashmir he would have tried it again but he was afraid that if he fails there was no civil govt to blame then which shows that it was done to defame civil govt to pave way for martial law

Rest in peace all.

Pakistan lost almost all goodwill due to this misadventure.

Thanks was much later.

Our soldiers collected and buried hundreds of dead. Both mujaheedin and regular Pakistan soldiers.

Agreed...

Title: Kargil Conflict and Pakistan Air Force

Author: Air Commodore (rtd) Kaiser Tufail.

Some Excerpts from the Article


"Perhaps it was the incredulousness of the whole thing that led Air Cdre Abid Rao to famously quip, “After this operation, it’s going to be either a Court Martial or Martial Law!” as we walked out of the briefing room."

Kargil, I suspect, like the ‘65 and ‘71 Wars, was a case of not having enough dissenters (‘devil’s advocates’, if you will) during planning, because everyone wanted to agree with the boss. That single reason, I think, was the root cause of most of the failures that were apparent right from the beginning. If this point is understood well, remedial measures towards tolerance and liberalism can follow as a matter of course. Such an organisational milieu, based on honest appraisal and fearless appeal, would be conducive to sound and sensible planning. It would also go a long way in precluding Kargil-like disasters.

Tailpiece

Come change-over time of the Chief of Air Staff in 2001, President Musharraf struck at PAF’s top leadership in what can only be described as implacable action: he passed over all five Air Marshals and appointed the sixth-in-line who was practically an Air Vice Marshal till a few weeks before. While disregarding of seniority in the appointment of service chiefs has historically been endemic in the country, the practice has been seen as breeding nepotism and partiality, besides leaving a trail of conjecture and gossip in the ranks. Given Air Chief Marshal Mehdi’s rather straight-faced and forthright dealings with General Musharraf, particularly during Kargil conflict, there is good reason to believe that the latter decided to appoint a not-very-senior Air Chief whom he could order around like one of his Corps Commanders. (As it turned out, Air Chief Marshal Mus’haf was as solid as his predecessor and gave no quarter when it came to PAF’s interests.) Whatever the reason of bypassing seniority, it was unfortunate that PAF’s precious corporate experience was thrown out so crassly and several careers destroyed. Lives and honour lost in Kargil is another matter.

Indian army threw mustard gas on retreating Pakistani forces, hundreds died.
I mean if we took decision to take Kashmir, and we knew it will end up on war, why we took that step that ruined actions taken by hundreds of our brave soldiers. If it was war, so be it.

There are thousands of such unfortunate soldiers who are buried on those heights. All because a "commando" wanted to satisfy his ego.
Why not make that 10,000 with majority of them being Indians.
Here let me enlighten you.

They will never talk about the humiliation they suffered in this conflict. Had our leadership be little more fastidious, Kashmir would have been freed.
