Tokyo: Reminding the world about the atrocities carried out by Pakistan while invading Jammu and Kashmir in 1947, demonstrations were held in front of the country's embassy in Japan's capital Tokyo on Thursday, media reports said.

Several people held banners and posters reading ‘#22OCTBLACKDAY’ and ’22 October – A Day To Remember’, during their protest against the Pakistani invasion of Jammu and Kashmir 73 years ago, reports ANI.

Black Day was observed in different parts of the world on Thursday.

Black Day is observed to mark the sacrifices made by lakhs of Hindus, Sikhs, Muslims to defeat the invasion of the erstwhile Princely State by the Pakistan Army in 1947, often touted as the tribal invasion.

The day is being observed at a time when Jammu and Kashmir, now a union territory, is observing the first anniversary of the scrapping of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir.

The Article had given special status to the former state which was turned into a union territory by New Delhi following its bifurcation.
