Islamabad, Aug 3 (ANI): Zahoor-ul-Hasan, the son of Altaf Husain, a resident of Hyderabad, has claimed that his father was the actual maker of the Pakistani flag at the time of the creation of the country.

He demanded that his father's name must be included in the record of the movement of Pakistan.

Speaking at a news conference on Sunday, Zahoor-ul-Hasan said that at the time Pakistan was on the verge of being created, the Father of the Nation, Quaid-e-Azam, got the flag of Pakistan designed by Amiruddin Kidwai.

Zahoor said the Quaid brought the design to his father Altaf Husain, who was running a tailor shop in Delhi with the name Husain Brothers.

The Quaid asked Altaf Husain to sew the new flag of Pakistan, which he promptly did.

Zahoor presented before the press a photo of his father sewing the flag of Pakistan. The photo was also published on August 18 edition of the American weekly magazine LIFE, The News reported. (ANI)
