Words often fall short to praise our soldiers who risk their lives to safeguard the entire nation. Not only is their selfless love for the country praiseworthy but the way they go out of their way to help the common man time and again, never fails to wins hearts.

In one such kind gesture, a CRPF jawan, Iqbal Singh is being applauded for feeding a hungry disabled boy in Kashmir.

“I was having my lunch in Nawakadal area of Srinagar around 12.30 p.m. on Monday when I saw the boy aged around 10 years sitting in front of a closed shop and signaling me for food. I walked towards the boy and offered my lunch box to him,” narrated Iqbal.

But later he realized that his hands were paralytic and he was unable to eat by himself. “I then put a sheet on the boy’s lap and fed him rice and ‘chana dal’ (gram pulse),” he said.

The video of Iqbal feeding the child has been shared by the official handle of CRPF. “Humanity is the mother of all religions. HC Driver Iqbal Singh of 49 Bn Srinagar Sector CRPF deployed on LO duty feeds a paralyzed Kashmiri kid in Nawakadal area of Srinagar. In the end, asks him ‘Do you need water?’ Valour and compassion are two sides of the same coin,” they wrote.
