No exchange of sweets between BSF and Pakistan Rangers at Wagah border on Eid
Amid tension prevailing between India and Pakistan over terror attacks on security forces and ceasefire violations in Jammu and Kashmir (J&K), there was no exchange of sweets between the border guards at the joint checkpost at Attari-Wagah border in Amritsar.
Officials of the Border Security Force (BSF) and Pakistan Rangers exchange sweets on religious occasions and national days of both nations but the tradition has been given a break a few times in the past five-six years.
Meanwhile, amid tight security in other parts of the country, the muslim community celebrated the festival of Eid. In Chandigarh, hundreds of Muslims converged at the Sector 20 Jama Masjid and other mosques to pray and celebrate Eid and greet each other. People turned out in large numbers to offer prayers.
In Punjab, the Muslim population is concentrated in the Malerkotla area near Patiala, 110 km from here, and in Gurdaspur district. Muslims in Ludhiana, Amritsar, Ferozepur and some other towns also celebrated Eid. http://www.newsx.com/national/67346-no-exchange-of-sweets-between-bsf-and-pakistan-rangers-at-wagah-border-on-eid
