Dubai, United Arab Emirates -  25, August 2019:  To mark the 150th  anniversary of the birth of Mahatma Ghandi on 2 October, Emirates Post has issued a commemorative stamp to honour the life and times of India’s most influential leader.  

Ghandi played a crucial role in the development of India and notably led the country to independence through non-violent protest. Commonly referred to as the ‘Father of India’, Ghandi is revered by many for his efforts to unite people, regardless of race or religion. 

Commenting on the special issuance, HE Abdulla M. Alashram, Acting Group CEO of Emirates Post Group, said:

“As we approach the anniversary of Mahatma Ghandi’s birthday, Emirates Post is issuing a stamp as a celebration of the values Ghandi embodied and upheld during his lifetime.  The stamp serves as a reminder of his significant contribution to human development, and his teachings of tolerance and respect is one of universal relevance. Seventy years after his passing, Mahatma Ghandi’s legacy can still be felt the world over and his impact on humanity still lives on. 

The stamp, designed to celebrate an inspirational historical figure, also demonstrates the strong ties the UAE has with India and the contributions Indians have and will play in the development of our communities here in the UAE”, he added.

Emirates Post is issuing 6,000 commemorative stamps, which are available at Emirates Post Central Happiness Centres.
