In a heartwarming gesture, the Indian army and Pakistani army came together on Thursday to celebrate Eid-Ul-Fitr on the Chakan Da Bagh crossing point Mendhar-hotspring crossing along the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir.

Owing to a renewed ceasefire, both the armies also exchanged sweets on the occasion in an attempt to promote goodwill and mutual trust. "On the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr, the tradition of exchanging sweets between India and Pakistan on major festivals like Eid, Holi, Diwali and respective National days was revived and meetings were held at the Tithwal crossing on Kishanganga River in Tangdhar, Kupwara and Kaman Aman Setu in Uri to exchange sweets and pleasantries," a spokesperson in Srinagar was reportedly quoted as saying.

"Exchange of inadvertently crossed over youths on three occasions in the last two months at the zero line in Tithwal bode well for the future. The exchange of sweets and pleasantries was conducted with full adherence to all COVID protocols by both sides," the spokesperson further added.
