    Prime Minister Narendra Modi greeted personnel of the Indian Navy on Navy Day today. “The Indian Navy fearlessly protects our coasts and also renders humanitarian assistance in times of need…,” PM Modi tweeted on Navy Day.

    Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said, “I salute their valour, courage and professionalism. Navy Day is celebrated every year on December 4 to commemorate the attack on the Karachi harbour during the India-Pakistan war in 1971.

    On this day, the Indian Navy’s attack on Karachi harbour contributed to the ultimate victory of the Indian Armed Forces over Pakistan. Union Home Minister Amit Shah On Navy Day wrote on the microblogging site, “I extend my warm greetings to all our courageous personnel of the Indian Navy and their families. India is proud of our formidable blue water force for their unwavering commitment in protecting our marine borders and serving the nation during calamities.”

    On December 3 in 1971 Pakistan attacked Indian air bases. Following the attack, the 25th Missile Vessel Squadron was ordered to dispatch three missile boats – Nirghat, Veer and Nipat at maximum speed towards Karachi.

    Just before midnight of December 4, the Navy’s missile boats carried out successful attacks resulting in sinking of Pakistani Destroyer Khaiber, Minesweeper Muhafiz and MV Venus Challenger as well as destruction of Kiamari oil fields.

    Karachi was attacked again on December 7 and 8 from the West. INS Vinash fired four missiles, which damaged MV Gulf Star, MV Harmatton and PN Tanker Dacca.
