The diaspora called this day a Black Day in humanity's history. The protesters chanted 'Band Kero Band Kero, Pakistan Dehshat Gardi Band Kero" (Pakistan! Stop Terrorism), "Kashmir Gilgit Baltistan - Sab hei Hindustan." They urged the Pakistani government to end terrorism.

"We are gathered here to protest against the genocide committed upon the people of Kashmir in 1947 by the terrorist state of Pakistan. On October 22, Pakistan army and its tribal force organised gathered forces, led by a Pakistani major that invaded into Kashmir, a peaceful Kashmir where there was no provocation against the Pakistani state and its people," a protestor said.

"The tribal militia committed genocide and raped women and plundered the peaceful land of Kashmir," he added.

Another protestor said, "Today, on October 24, we are protesting in front of the Toronto consulate so that Pakistan government realises that terrorism is not alright."
