Interesting question. There’s some sort of Hindi-like characters in the stamp. Probably a case of mistaken identity or Hindi movie influence? Maybe they don’t have any Indian (Tamil) staff.

So, will guardian of Indian community follow up on this obvious gross negligence of the 1Malaysia concept?

Tamil Nesan reported that the Taiping Tamilar Sangam had voiced dissatisfaction over Pos Malaysia Berhad’s failure to include Tamil in its recent release of first day covers promoting noble human values.

Its president M.S. Mayadevan said that he was surprised that one of the 10 stamps released had the words terima kasih in Bahasa Malaysia and the same word in other languages like English, Chinese and Hindi but not a single word in Tamil.

He said that Pos Malaysia should have accorded proper recognition to the role of Tamil.

He urged MIC to highlight the matter.
