Several people participated in rallies on October 22 across Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK), denouncing the 1947 tribal onslaught that Pakistan supported.

PoK people demonstrated in Bagh, Ajira, Rawalakot, and Pindi under the leadership of political activists including Asad Nawaz and Abid Shaheen from the Jammu Kashmir National Awami Party (JKNAP) and leaders from other regional parties.

While denouncing Pakistan’s fabrications and hypocrisy about the Kashmir problem, the demonstrators also chanted anti-Pakistan and anti-army chants. Black flags and anti-Pakistan placards with the words “Black Day” were carried by the demonstrators.

Pak Army-backed tribal invasion of Jammu and Kashmir in 1947 is commemorated on October 22. The intervening night of October 21–22, 1947 is remembered as the “Black Day” in JK’s history since it had a negative impact on the future of the area.

Operation Gulmarg, a tribal invasion that occurred on October 22, claimed hundreds of innocent lives and altered the course of history in Jammu & Kashmir. To observe October 22 as “Black Day,” the United Kashmir People’s National Party (UKPNP) staged rallies in PoK and other nations.

Earlier on October 22, 1947, a tribal invasion, looting, and slaughter of state inhabitants sparked protests all over the world and laid the groundwork for the division of the state of Jammu and Kashmir.
