Pak issues 20 commemorative stamps featuring Burhan Wani, pellet victims in ‘solidarity with oppressed Kashmiris’

To commemorate ‘slain militants and victims of Indian oppression’, Pakistan has issued twenty postage stamps in solidarity with the people of Kashmir, reported the Times of India. 

Slain Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani, who also features on one of the stamps, has been declared a ‘freedom icon’ by Pakistan as they express their solidarity with Kashmiris in their ‘fight against the Indian oppression’.

A Times of India report quoted a senior official of Pakistan Post as saying that stamps — many with disturbing images – were issued from its headquarters in Karachi on July 24 to locally and internationally highlight the plight of people living in Kashmir.

Besides the slain militant commander, other captions that feature on ‘commemorative’ stamps include ‘use of chemical weapons’, ‘use of pellet guns’, ‘mass graves’, ‘braid chopping’, and the pictures are that of militants killed in gunfights in the Kashmir Valley over the last few years.
