Jammu, Oct 7: Refugees from Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK), residing in various parts of Jammu and Kashmir and outside, have resolved to observe October 22 as a 'Black Day', the date when tribals attacked Muzaffrabad, Mirpu and Kotli and killed thousands of non-Muslims.

Chairman of an organisation of PoK refugees, SOS International, Mr Rajeev Chunni in a press conference here yesterday said, ''All members of refugee families, who were forced to exile from their places in 1947, will wear black badges on October 22.'' Mr Chunni said, the 'Black Day', will commence with the paying floral tributes to the Sikh and Hindu people who lost their lives in tribal invasion, followed by a 'Sarv Dharma Sabha' to pray for the departed souls.

Thereafter, the refugee community will stage protest in support of their long pending demands and rights.
