AN EXAMPLE OF TREATMENT OF INDIAN POWS BY PAKISTAN

Lt. Saurabh Kalia of 4 JAT Regiment of the Indian Army
laid down his life at the young age of 22 for the
nation while guarding the frontiers at Kargil. His
parents, indeed the Indian Army and nation itself,
lost a dedicated, honest and brave son.
He was the first officer to detect and inform about
Pakistani intrusion. Pakistan captured him and his
patrol party of 5 brave men alive on May15, 1999 from
the Indian side of LOC.
They were kept in captivity for three weeks and
subjected to unprecedented brutal torture, evident
from their bodies handed over by Pakistan Army on
June9 ,1999. The Pakistanis indulged in dastardly acts
of inflicting burns on the Indians with cigarettes,
piercing their ears with hot rods, removing theireyes
before puncturing them and breaking most of the bones
and teeth. They even chopped off various limbs and
private organs of the Indian soldiers besides
inflicting unimaginable physical and mental torture.
After 22 days of torture, the brave soldiers were
ultimately shot dead. A detailed post-mortem report is
with the Indian Army.
Pakistan dared to humiliate India this way flouting
all international norms. They proved the extent to
which they can degrade humanity. However, the Indian
soldiers did not break while undergoing all this
unimaginable barbarism, which speaks volumes of their
patriotism, grit, determination, tenacity and valour
something all of India should be proud of.
Sacrificing oneself for the nation is an honour every
soldier would be proud of, but no parent, army or
nation can accept what happened to these brave sons of
India.
I am afraid every parent may think twice to sendtheir
child in the armed forces if we all fall short of our
duty in safeguarding the PRISONERS OF WAR AND LET THEM
MEET THE FATE OF LT. SAURABH KALIA.
It may also send a demoralising signal to the army
personnel fighting for the Nation that our POWs in Pak
cannot be taken care of. It is a matter of shame and
disgust that most of Indian Human Rights Organisations
by and large, showed apathy in this matter.
Through this humble submission, may I appeal to all
the civilized people irrespective of colour, caste,
region, religion and political lineage to stir their
conscience and rise to take this as a NATIONAL ISSUE?
International Human Rights Organisations must be
approached to expose and pressure Pakistan to
identify, book and punish all those who perpetrated
this heinous crime to our men in uniform. If Pakistan
is allowed to go unpunished in this case, we can
imagine the consequences.
Below is the list of 5 other soldiers who preferred to
die for the country rather than open their mouths in
front of enemy.
