Honourpoint Foundation is an Indian not-for-profit organization that runs Honourpoint. Honourpoint describes itself an online memorial for soldiers of the Indian Armed Forces who have lost their lives in service or who have passed away from natural causes, since August 15, 1947.[1]

Honourpoint collates and updates the profiles of these soldiers. Information is sourced from newspapers, government websites, books, etc., and is compiled on the website.[2]

It was founded in 2017 by retired Indian Air Force Officers Wg Cdr MA Afraz, Wg Cdr Rajendra Prasad and Wg Cdr LK Choubey.[1] Co-founder MA Afraz has stated they began Honourpoint with the aim of ensuring that the fallen soldiers are remembered and to generate a feeling of patriotism among the people. [2][3]


Honourpoint lists the profiles of all soldiers of the Indian Armed Forces who have died in service or from natural causes, since August 15, 1947. It has identified that roughly 24,000 soldiers have died since then and is working to publish data on these soldiers. [4] The profiles contain information such as the last rank held, service (Army, Air Force or Navy), service number and unit, etc. [4] Once the data is collected, it is verified, after which the families of the soldiers supplement the profiles with personal details, and sometimes take over their maintenance. [3][4] Co-founder MA Afraz has stated that the ultimate aim is to make Honourpoint an encyclopedic resource where the community can contribute to and engage with these profiles. [5] Honourpoint also raises funds to support the soldiers' families, with local non-governmental organizations and other civil societies. [1][5]
