Untitled[edit]

It was blunder and confusion of Indians that they cosidered this man dead and awarded him highest gallentry award and later he was found in a military hospital alive.

Needs severe clean-up (or should be deleted)[edit]

I added the 'Weasel words' and 'Incoherent' flags.

If the article isn't rewritten, I think it should be deleted. But I think first it should have a chance if somebody can explain why Sanjay Kumar is relevant enough for a wikipedia article. The article is pretty unintelligible, written in stilted English, and full of irrelevant bias ("displayed extraordinary courage" etc.). Who was this soldier anyway and why is he important? Is he well-known in India? Which place and importance does it have in the greater context of the conflict? I assume it is the 1999 Kargil Conflict but this is not even mentioned. --Sasper 19:15, 4 November 2006 (UTC).

Don't see why deletion has been suggested. This is an encyclopedia.[edit]

You have the choice of editing out the weasel words and improving the article instead of asking for it to be deleted. The way out from a bad article is not to delete it but to improve it. We have a number of task groups, notably (in this case) Indian military history task force whose notice you could bring this to. Please remember, this is an encyclopedia not an English language examination.Dudewheresmywallet 14:23, 17 November 2006 (UTC)
Actually it wasn't what I suggested. I added the "weasel words" and "incoherent" flags, not the "nominated for deletion" flag. I just said that if it couldn't be fixed then deletion should be considered. I don't mind about articles being in less than 100% correct English and of various style, to the taste of the writer (I am not from an English-speaking country myself). But I find the current text almost unintelligible. Also, I think articles about Indian-Pakistani conflicts naturally belong in the Wikipedia just as much as articles from everywhere else in the world. And should fulfill the same standards.--Sasper 13:38, 18 November 2006 (UTC)
Sure it should fulfill the same standards, but that would be achieved by improving it. Anyway, I have listed this artcile on the Military history task force page. Hopefuly someone will have a look.Dudewheresmywallet 15:00, 18 November 2006 (UTC)
