🌹When Pakistan Honoured A Courageous Pak Army Captain Because Of An Indian Brigadier’s Citation🌹
🌹Captain Karnal Sher Khan, 12, Northern Light Infantry, Pakistan Army, who was killed in action at Kargil in 1999, was initially abandoned by his country when it refused to acknowledge that its army personnel had been involved, but eventually received Pakistan’s highest gallantry award, the Nishan-e-Haider.
🌹And this honour was made possible by an Indian Army officer, Brigadier M.P.S. Bajwa (now retired), who was then commanding the 192 Mountain Brigade.
🌹Captain Karnal Sher Khan fought bravely and fiercely, led and motivated his men in such a way at the Battle of Tiger Hill that finally the 18, Grenadiers and 8, Sikh Regiment had no choice but to take out Captain Khan!
🌹And that’s how Tiger Hill was captured
🌹Bajwa was so impressed by the way Khan had fought and led his men that he wrote a citation for him and placed it in his pocket while handing over the body, which eventually led to his recognition.
🌹 The battle of Tiger Hill was thus won. “We buried 30 enemy dead. I, thereafter, through civilian porters, got Captain Khan’s body down from Tiger Hill. After a search, we found letters written by his wife in Urdu. The Captain had really fought bravely,” Bajwa said.
