Srinagar, Oct 22 (PTI) Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha on Friday said October 22, the day on which Pakistani tribals raided the valley in 1947, is a reminder of the neighbouring country's atrocities and will always remain a black day not just for the people of the Union Territory but for the entire humanity.

Sinha paid homage to all the brave soldiers and civilians who were killed in the October 1947 attack by Pakistan Army soldiers, who disguised themselves as Pashtun tribals, an official spokesperson said.

Speaking at a seminar on "Memories of 22 October, 1947" at the Sher-i-Kashmir International Convention Centre (SKICC) here, he said the atrocities of Pakistan on the people of Jammu and Kashmir have been exposed to the world.
