The Ismailis celebrate Imamat Day in different parts of the Gilgit-Baltistan

Gilgit, July 7: The Imamat Day was celebrated by the Ismaili Muslims in different parts of the Gilgit-Baltistan. The celebrations mark the ascent of His Highness the Aga Khan, Prince Shah Karim Al-Hussaini, to the throne of Imamat of the Ismaili Muslims. The present Aga Khan became the Imam of the Ismailis after the death of his grandfather, Sir Sultan Mohammed Shah Aga Khan III on 11th July, 1957.

This year the festivities were concluded earlier as a mark of respect for the month of Ramazan.
