‘Pakistan issues postage stamps with Burhan Wani pic’
Srinagar, Sep 20: Describing him as a “freedom icon”, Pakistan has reportedly issued special postage stamps portraying slain Hizbul Mujahideen militant commander Burhan Wani, a media report said today.
Pakistan has issued 20 special postage stamps with captions like “Burhan Wani (1994-2016) freedom icon”, reported ‘The Times of India’.
Quoting a senior official of Pakistan Post, the report said that the stamps were issued from the Post’s headquarters in Karachi on 24 July to locally and internationally highlight the “plight of people living in Kashmir”.
