  1. Wait For 10 Years to Honour The Martyrs Of 26/11 Mumbai Attack"

    We would like to bring attention of the readers towards our proposal dated 16th Dec'09 sent to Communication Ministry , Govt. Of India regarding issuance of Commemorative postal stamp on Martyrs Of 26/11 Mumbai attack..

    It is unfortunate that communication ministry feels that the martyrs of 26/11 are no extra ordinary persons & issuance of postal stamp on martyrs of 26/11 is not worthy.

    We on behalf of All India Philatelist's Association & as a citizens of India would like to raise few questions from communication ministry regarding there reply .

    1) Do we need to wait for 10 years as reffered in the reply to honour the martyrs of 26/11 , who have sacrificed there lives for the nation?

    2) Can communication ministry clarify if there are any guidelines by ministry that only after 10 years of death the postal stamp can be issued then there are many examples including Industrialist like Dhirubhai Ambani & others on whom the postal stamp were issued within 2 years of there death then how can the commnication ministry remembers there guidelines in case of the martyrs of 26/11 ?

    3) In past 10 years there were many postal stamps issued by communication ministry on the personalites whom no one have known or of those people who dont have any national contribution but then too they were honoured with the postal stamp ?

    We hope that we will get support of all the readers to immortalise "Martyrs Of 26/11 " by getting commemorative postal stamp issued on them.
