Jinnah – The First Portrait


Pakistan Post hasn’t been much faithful to Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the founder of Pakistan, as it did not print any stamp bearing his portrait till as late as 25th December 1966 on the eve of celebrating his 90th birthday. The Pakistan Post issued two stamps of 15 and 50 paisa denomination.
