SRINAGAR: A couple of photographs captioned as “Brothers-in-arms for peace” of a jawan offering namaz while another stands guard shared by CRPF Srinagar unit has taken internet by storm.

This beautiful incidence happened on Saturday. A Muslim CRPF cop offered Zuhr prayers (afternoon Namaz) during duty while the other CRPF jawan, presumably Hindu stood guard for him till he finished his Namaz.

According to DNA, this heart- touching moments of our CRPF jawans guarding each other was captured by Lateef Ali, a station house officer of Lar Police station. He says,

“I was sitting in my office having lunch when I saw, from my window, someone offering prayers on the roadside and a CRPF soldier stand guard for him. It was a unique sight, and it also symbolizes our secularism. So I decided to capture it. Rest is history.”

The internet has erupted in joy after the image went viral. “What a heartwarming moment. CRPF jawan standing guard while a Jammu and Kashmir cop offers prayers in Kashmir. Diversity is our strength!” tweeted Javaid Trali, media analyst of J&K government.
