    SIACHEN – Six years ago on this day, 135 people, including 124 soldiers and 11 civilians, were martyred when an avalanche hit the military headquarters in Gayari sector of Siachen.

    The fearless soldiers defending the border region at an altitude of about 16,000 feet breathed their last and were buried under 70 feet of snow on the morning of April 7, 2012, making it the worst avalanche of history that Pakistan’s armed forces ever experienced.

    The region, where the catastrophe occurred, is in the eastern Karakoram range in the Himalaya Mountains and has been the site of intermittent conflict between nuclear-armed neighbours India and Pakistan for several decades.

    Avalanches are known to occur frequently in the Siachen region, though casualties from them are generally low due to the fact that they normally strike remote, high-altitude “forward bases” with only a handful of troops. The most devastating one occurred on this day in 2012 aggrieving the whole nation.

    On the sixth anniversary of the incident, social media buffs took to Twitter to remember the courage and sacrifices of Pakistan’s armed forces and to pay homage to the fallen soldiers.

    After more than a year-long search, former Chief of Army Staff General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani had announced on October 3, 2013 that 133 bodies had been recovered.

    Hang all these corrupt politicians and jail all their families.

    What are our soldiers dying for?
