This Iconic Photograph of Jawans Standing for Communal Peace in J&K Is a Ray of Hope Amid Unrest


The image of a Muslim jawan and a presumably Hindu CRPF personnel is shot in one of the most sensitive zones in the country.

Breaking all notions of communal disharmony prevalent in the country, one picture posted on the Srinagar CRPF’s official Twitter account has taken the internet by storm. The iconic picture is an accurate depiction of the real India. An India which stands for secularism, communal harmony and a love that transcends boundaries of religion.

Captioned “brothers-in-arms for peace,” the picture posted last evening, shows a CPRF jawan offering Namaz, while another stands and guards him.

The image of the Muslim jawan sitting in front of a closed shop and a presumably Hindu CRPF personnel guarding him is shot in one of the most sensitive zones in the country.

In a Kashmir where riots, public unrest, stone pelting and deafening sounds of gunfire are far from alien, our Muslim and Hindu brethren live in absolute harmony.
