On 7 April 2014, Samajwadi Party leader and Uttar Pradesh Minority Affairs Minister Mohammad Azam Khan in a speech asserted thus:

Those who fought for victory in Kargil were not Hindu soldiers. In fact, the ones who fought for our victory were Muslim soldiers.

In keeping with IndiaFacts’ motto of resorting decency in public discourse using facts and dispassionate analysis, we present the following facts about the Kargil war.

The following is the official list of the armed forces personnel (two from the paramilitary organisations) who gave their lives to defeat the Pakistanis in the Kargil war.
