A heartfelt Twitter exchange between a former Indian Army official and a Pakistani Army Major over the tragic deaths of Chief of Defence Staff Bipin Rawat, his wife Madhulika and other Defence personnel is a message of love and peace, which has gone viral.

CDS Rawat’s chopper with other officials crashed into the Nilgiri Hills in Tamil Nadu on Wednesday.

Brigadier RS Pathania, an former war veteran of India, took to Twitter to express his respect and condolences for CDS Rawat after news of his tragic death came.

Adil Raja, a former Major with the Pakistani Army condoled the CDS's death in the thread. He wrote, “Sir please accept my heartfelt condolences." Brig Pathania replied to him, “Thank you Adil. That’s what is expected from a soldier. Salute you."

In our Punjabi folklore they say, “dushman maray te khushian na manawoo, kadday sajna v mar jaana"

Means: “Don’t celebrate the deaths of your enemies as some day friends would also die".

Replying to this beautiful thought on humanity, Pathania wrote, “Thank you again Adil. I understand Punjabi and speak it as well. 🙂

We are enemies on the battlefield. Off that, let’s be civil to each other if we cannot be friends."
