The issue is about recent Nilai-Nilai Murni (Virtues) stamps edition missing the Tamil version while other languages were prominently figured. At least Pos Malaysia took the step to recall the stamps and rectify the oversight.


WITH reference to “Group angry that Tamil not used in first day covers” (The Star Online, June 15), we acknowlege that the words featured in the stamp, depicting Kesyukuran (Thankfulness), included English, Bahasa Malaysia, Mandarin and Hindi.

Pos Malaysia would like to clarify that the inclusion of the Hindi word featured in the stamp depicting Kesyukuran was an inadvertent error on the part of the issuing committee.

Therefore, Pos Malaysia will be recalling all the Nilai-Nilai Murni (Values) stamps and will reissue the stamps to include the Tamil word forKesyukuran.
