Dear SCF members,
Does anyone has a copy of this postal stationary, or know more about this please. Been trying to check, but no luck identifying this item. It has both the Chinese and (I believed) Arabic characters.


Thanks.

I tried a visual translation. It might be from a war or something, however I'm not really sure what this is. Here is what it apparently said according to this translator.
first photo is Chinese translation, second is Arabic translation.

I think it's safe to assume that the inscriptions in the two languages contain the same message.

The reason that the translation from Arabic is complete and utter nonsense is because the language written here in Arabic script isn't Arabic. Looking at how Mao Zedong's name is written here and comparing it to the titles of Wikipedia articles on Mao in various languages using Arabic script, I'm going to guess that the language is Uyghur. This would make sense, because 12.8 million Uyghurs live in the People's Republic of China, primarily in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region.

My opinion is that this is a postcard produced in Xinjiang, featuring an inspirational quote from Chairman Mao in Chinese and Uyghur.

Thank you both M1997 & erilaz for taking your precious time to check. I think it make sense that the language is Uyghur and this postal stationary is from Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region. I bought this from a local weekend Stamp Fair in Sydney many years ago. Hopefully I am able to find out more in the near future based on the information you both provided. Thanks again and have a good weekend.
