17 February 1981
ZF 66663

On 17 February 1981 the Pope's visit to Pakistan was headline news for the Pakistani newspaper The Muslim. On its masthead this English language newspaper has the motto: President Zia al-Haq welcomed the Pope during his 180-minute stop-over in Karachi. As The Muslim photographers did not attend the mass that the Pope held in the National Stadium, the front page photo was taken from the television broadcast.
