 US Postal Service (USPS) Debuts Eid Stamp
On November 13, 2000 the United States Postal Service (USPS) debuted a stamp that recognizes Eid ul-Fitr. This stamp, along with others to be released in 2001, was featured on C-SPAN's "Washington Journal" program. The call-in program was broadcasted from the Smithsonian Institution's National Postal Museum.

The USPS, officially launched the Eid Stamp (an event was held in Chicago, Illinois during the 38th Annual ISNA convention) to the public on September 1, 2001. The postal service had received thousands of letters requesting the Eid stamp. Several Muslim groups and individuals have been seeking an Eid ul-Fitr or Ramadan stamp since the early 90s.

"This is one sign that the Muslim presence in America is being recognized," said CAIR Board Chairman Omar Ahmad. Ahmad added that in 1996 hundreds of Muslim children responded to a CAIR action alert by sending requests for an Eid ul-Fitr stamp to the Postmaster General.

 



Serviced 1,482,974,681 Requests Since January 2001
