Karnal Sher Khan in Kargil War

    A similar incident took place during the Kargil War in 1999 when Colonel Sher Khan, the captain of the Pakistan Army, fought so bravely on the Tiger Hill front that the Indian Army recognized his bravery.
Brigadier MS Bajwa, who commanded the fight told that: "When this war ended, I was convinced of this officer. I also fought the 1971 war. I was never a Pakistani officer.  The rest of the Pakistani soldiers were in pyjamas and he was alone in a tracksuit.
Colonel Sher joined the Pakistan Military Academy in October 1992.  When he arrived, he had a beard.  He was asked to shave, but he refused.

    During his last session, he was again told that he was performing well.  If you clean your beard, you can get a good publication.
    But still, he refused.  Despite this, he was promoted to the rank of Quarter Battalion Chief.
    Ali Hussain, a junior at the Pakistan Military Academy, said: "His English was very good. He played" Scrabble "with other officers and often won.
