The Pakistani authorities including ISI and Rangers have refused to accept the sweets from Indian authorities on the occasion of Diwali. Reports said the Indian High Commission in Pakistan has sent Diwali sweets to Pakistani authorities including ISI and Pak Rangers.
Pakistan as per reports has returned back the sweets. As a peace gesture, the Indian Army and Pakistani Army also exchange sweets on every festival.
On Sunday, India and Pakistan soldiers along with the LoC exchange fires which resulted in the number of deaths on both sides. Indian Army claimed Pakistan violated the ceasefire and killed two soldiers and one civilian. In response, the Indian soldiers attacked PoK and killed scores of soldiers in the region.
This is the second time since the abrogation of article 370 when the customary exchange of sweets between Indian soldiers and Pakistan along the LoC did not take place.
On the occasion of Eid al-Adha this year, Pakistan had not accepted the sweets from Indian soldiers as a protest against the revocation of Article 370.
