NEW DELHI, Oct 6 (Agencies): As the stand-off between India and Pakistan intensifies in Jammu and Kashmir, the countries have called off sweet sharing tradition along the Attari border on Eid. This cancellation comes after heavy shelling and firing from across the border has left five villagers dead and 29 injured in Jammu and Kashmir.

Defence Minister Arun Jaitley deplored the ceasefire violations by Pakistan and said the Indian armed forces were "fully ready" and are responding to each of these provocations from across the border.

"Armed forces fully ready to respond to each of these Pakistani provocations," said Jaitley

Earlier, Home Minister Rajnath Singh asked Pakistan to stop ceasefire violations. "Pakistan should stop ceasefire violations now and understand the reality that times have changed in India," Singh said.

Meanwhile, Border Security Force officials said that they will take up the matter in the next meeting between both sides.

Congress and BJP condemned the ceasefire violations by Pakistan and said it was a "serious" issue.

"Whatever Pakistan is doing is certainly a serious matter. And we want to tell Pakistan that indulging in such activities is not good for that country," BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said.

Condemning Pakistan's actions, former External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid said it is despicable that such incidents have occurred on Eid. "There cannot be anything worse than this," the Congress leader said.
