After Azam Khan said that ” Those, who defended Kargil, were not Hindus; they were Muslims.”, I thought it would be interesting to publish the list of those Indian soldiers who died in Kargil. My heart goes out to them; for it was the death of heroes in the face of impossible challenges, giving their lives for Mother India, which so many Indian intellectuals, journalists and politicians have so little love for.

  1. Quite a comprehensive list Mr. Gautier. Thank you for that!

    While the sacrifice of each soldier is incomparable with any other, a reaction from people like you who believe in the idea of One India might only help the others fuel this unholy fire even further.

    Well, it’s just an opinion of this Indian.

  2. Romesh Gupta

    This list should not have been posted. The Martyrs are Indians and that says it all.

  3. You are one of the rare media person in whom trust has endured. To be honest, i have stopped trusting every english media, be it national or international and almost all TV news channels. Surprising, but I trust a tweet from a random guy more than an editorial by a “supposedly” big name publishing house

  4. sir i really salute you by sharing this list you give one kind of homage to the martyrs of this country .may god always bless to save and nurture the hindutva

  5. Fortunately, then Ft Lt K Nachiketa , still happens to serve our country in the grade of Group Captain & so may I request for the necessary corrections in the relevent records, pl ?
