Gurmehar Kaur, 18 years old today, was only 2 during the 1999 Kargil war when Pakistan in a surprise attack captured a strategic Siachen Kargil hill territory. Many Indian soldiers died as India was forced to counter-attack and recapture this strategic Kargil-Siachen point. Sadly, Gurmehar Kaur’s father was one such casualty, but Pakistan’s frequent attacks and state sponsored terrorism has caused fatalities to many soldiers, their families and members of their communities. Gurmehar Kaur who had no idea in 1999 what happened, is hoping to see peace along the border and an end to fighting so that no more children see lose their fathers. HOPE PAKISTAN IS LISTENING?
