January 1992 witnessed the holding of the 2nd national
philatelic exhibition at Peshawar. This exhibition was staged on a much larger
scale as compared to the exhibition of 1990. Mr. Amir Nawaz Khan then director
General of Pakistan Post Office Department inaugurated the exhibition
personally on a chilly and dry morning.
Over 100 exhibits of eminent philatelists from all over
the country were put on display in three competitive classes. In addition to
these valuable exhibits teenage students of around 40 local schools participated
in the junior section of the competition.
Pakistan Post Office department took part in this exhibition more
enthusiastically besides opening a special philatelic counter four special
postmarks were also issued to commemorate each day of the exhibition.
Alas, soon after the exhibition the society suffered the
tragic loss in the sad demise of two of its most active members i.e. M/s
Iftikhar A. Kazi and Gulzar Ahmad Chudary who happened to be the Chairman of
the just concluded exhibition. In quick succession the society decided to honor
them by dedicating the next exhibition to their memory.
