Family of Master Altaf Hussain Demands Posthumous Recognition for him

As Pakistan prepares to celebrate its 73rd Independence Day, the family of one man claims he was the first person to stitch the Pakistani flag and has a national right to demand retrospective recognition for him. Addressing a press conference in Hyderabad on Sunday, Zahoorul Hassan, son of late tailor Altaf Hussain, said that his father’s name should be supplemented to Pakistan’s history as he was the man who tailored the nation’s first flag.

“We have been struggling for the last four decades to get official recognition for my father’s contribution to Pakistan’s history. Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah himself had ordered my father to stitch the flag.”
