Gandhinagar: Joining the Eid-ul-Fitr celebrations along the international border in Gujarat, personnel of the border guarding force BSF on Thursday exchanged sweets and greetings with their Pakistani counterparts.

Border Security Force personnel handed over packets of sweets to the Pakistan Rangers who reciprocated with equal felicitations, a senior official said. Eid-ul-Fitr marks the culmination of Ramzan, the holy month of fasting.

 

"It is part of our tradition to exchange greetings and sweets with them (Pakistan Rangers) on festivals like Eid, Diwali, Holi and Independence Day," the official said.

Both sides greeted each other 'Eid Mubaraq' as the festive exchanges were done at almost all battalions of the BSF under the Gujarat Frontier, the BSF officer said.
