Jammu: When one goes to pray another stands to guard him. Always they are band of brothers. Such touchy picture tweeted recently by CRPF.
Captioned ‘Brothers-in-arms for peace’, the picture tweeted by the official CRPF handle on Saturday has Twitterati swooning over the humble comradery of two officers.
The picture shows, presumably a Hindu CRPF officer standing guard for his fellow Muslim officer while he offers namaz during duty hours.
The post went viral for all right reasons, with people hailing the harmonious sociability, religious coexistence and brotherhood between the two CRPF officers.
It also assumes added significance as the Valley has been reeling under enormous unrest and bellicose sentiments for over an year now, with curfews being imposed regularly.
The post sits atop the garb of how Kashmir is polarised on religious lines- with a Hindu cop shielding his Muslim colleague while the latter offers his prayers.
Meanwhile, two militants were gunned down today in encounter with the security forces Tahab village in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district.
