A commemorative postage stamp on freedom fighter Subhadra Joshi was released on 24 March 2011 by President of India Pratibha Devisingh Patil.

Subhadra Joshi born on 23rd March 1919 in a well known family in Sialkot was one of the veterans of freedom struggle who dedicated her life to preserving and promoting national integration, communal harmony, social justice for the minorities, weaker sections and the handicapped.
Attracted by the ideals of Gandhiji, she took part in the Quit India Movement in 1942 as a student. She went underground and edited a journal Hamara Sangram. For the education of dalit children she opened evening schools in Delhi.

During the dark days of Partition she set up a peace volunteer organization Shanti Dal which went from door to door spreading the Gandhiji’s message of peace and amity. She even organized rehabilitation of evacuees from Pakistan.

As a parliamentarian for four terms, she made an outstanding contribution to the passage of Special Marriage Act, the Nationalization of Banks, Abolition of Privy Purses, Aligarh University Amendment Act and others. She pioneered the move to amend the code for Criminal Procedure whereby organized propaganda leading to fear or ill will among communities was made a cognizable offence.
