On the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr, Indian Army and Pakistani Army undertook a small but significant ritual that neighbours often do – they exchanged sweets.
The two armies celebrated Eid-ul-Fitr on the Line of Control (LoC) at Poonch-Rawalakot Crossing Point and Mendhar-Hotspring Crossing Point in Poonch district of Jammu & Kashmir today.
In an atmosphere of bonhomie and festivities, sweets and compliments were exchanged by the representatives of both the armies.
The ceremony is seen as a confidence-building measure in the backdrop of a recently agreed ceasefire between both countries. The gesture was appreciated by both the armies and is expected to promote goodwill and mutual trust, said a statement.
