The Cast Of Kargil


The Kargil conflict between India and Pakistan ended in the defeat of the latter and led to the overthrow of an elected government in Islamabad, followed by almost a decade of military rule under General Pervez Musharraf, who is now facing a trial for treason. Shirin Mazari, a member of the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf of Imran Khan, wrote her book, The Kargil Conflict 1999: Separating Fact from Fiction, in 2003. In 2018, a different book on the same subject, From Kargil to the Coup: Events that Shook Pakistan, has been written by well-known Pakistan journalist Nasim Zehra. It would be interesting here to reproduce the portraits of the dramatis personae of the “operation”, as featured in Zehra’s revealing book.

Musharraf promoted vice chief of general staff, Major General Mohammad Aziz Khan to lieutenant general and appointed him chief of general staff (CGS) at the GHQ. The military chief also appointed Lt General Mahmud Ahmad, the recently-appointed commandant, National Defence College, as corps commander 10 Corps.
