One postal stamp is getting shared on social media. In the stamp, a Muslim man has been showed tossing an Indian man. But what was the reason behind the issuance of this postal stamp?
What are social media users claiming?
Ocean Jain named X (formerly twitter) user has shared an image writing ,”In 1982 Indira Gandhi issued a postal stamp on Asian games, In the video it was shown Turk Muslim toss an Indian .What can be the reason?”
Multiple other social media users were also found to share similar posts.
On searching the image we found that the postal stamp was uploaded on the website of Olympic Council Of Asia and Stamp World. This is one of the postal stamps that were written during 9th Asian games, which was organized in Delhi, in the year 1982.
Who is the designer?
DFRAC team has found that in one of the online collections of postal stamp, Istampgallery, has provided the information about the stamp. The Istampgallery claims that this stamp is of Mughal style painting which also has primary France effect in it. This was designed by A.Ramchand by the information that he got through the painting.
Is there any religious angle in postal stamp?
In the postal stamp there is no disclosure of any person’s religion nor the designer A.Ramchand on his website has given any information about religion in relation to stamp. We cannot get any information about religion through the clothes of two persons wearing in the image. In spite of this more postal stamp were issued during 1982 Asian Games which can be seen in the screenshot given below.
The DFRAC fact check reveals that the postal stamp that was issued in 9th Asian Games in the year 1982 has no religious connection . So the claims that are given by social media users are misleading.
