Demand of Kargil war hero Capt Saurabh Kalia's father who wants India to take Pakistan to ICJ should be supported
"My son was tortured. His eardrums were pierced with hot iron rods, eyes punctured, gouged out and genitals cut off. The Pakistan army burnt his body with cigarettes, broke most of his bones and teeth but he did not break his silence through this barbaric torture. They ultimately shot him dead. I am the proud father of Capt. Saurabh Kalia who laid down his life in Kargil war while being held as a prisoner of war by the Pakistani army....."
We are aware about the bravery of Capt Saurabh Kalia ,who laid down his young tender age/life in Kargil war. Every sensitive citizen of India had have said goodbye to him with tearing sentiments.

I remember very well that body of Saurabh was received by Indian Army from Pak Army was brutally murdered, more worst than goat killings. His pious mission of protecting the country at the name of patriotism was not a small thing. It was a great sacrificed by the whole family. But even after passing 16 years, the justice to the family is fudging.

I support the petition of innocent father (of Saurabh) to the Government of India to take the case to the International court for justice. "Justice delayed is justice denied"- Capt Kalia's case is a perfect example of this.

The brave boy was doing pious duty of the nation by patrolling with other five brave soldiers at more than 14000 feet in Kargil to check infiltration. It is a military process in which individuals /small groups, penetrate an enemy area without being detected. In that process the positioning soldiers in response to firing from the other side of the border kept fighting until they went out of ammunition. They were finally captured alive and kept in jail for more than 23 days.

Saurabh, along with Sepoy Arjun Ram Baswana, Sepoy Naresh Singh Sinsinvar, Sepoy Bhikaram Mudh, Sepoy Moola Ram Bidiasar, Sepoy Bhanwar Lal Bagaria offered their supreme sacrifice in the highest traditions of Indian Army. Saurabh's last words still bring tears in masses. Before Saurabh left for "Operation Vijay", his last words to his mother were, "Maa tu dekhna, aisa kaam kar jaunga ki saari dunia mein naam hoga (mother, you see one day I will do such a deed that the whole world will remember me)."

For the sake of gravity of the nation his father said, "Saurabh died for India. I want the Prime Minister and Ministry of External Affairs to take Pakistan to International Court of Justice for this heinous crime against humanity."

Therefore I am requesting all my friends and country men and true citizens of the nation and other friends settled at foreign lands that they should come forward and spare some time to sign and support the petition of the brave father of a brave son.
