Ismaili Imamat Exhibit

Hon. Mobina S. B. Jaffer: Honourable senators, a special exhibition that explores the life and work of His Highness the Aga Khan is at the Delegation of the Ismaili Imamat in Ottawa.

“Rays of Light: Glimpses into the Ismaili Imamat,” highlights the institution that the Aga Khan has founded and how their work has developed over the past 50 years to serve people across countries, religions and cultures.

Canada is an important partner in many of these initiatives. The Aga Khan has looked specifically to Canada as a leader in promoting a common ethical framework, including shared values of pluralism, democracy and civic engagement.

His Highness the Aga Khan is the forty-ninth hereditary imam of the Shia Imami Ismaili Muslims and is the spiritual leader of some 15 million Ismaili Muslims. He’s also the founder and chairman of the Aga Khan Development Network, which brings together several non-denominational development agencies that work primarily in the poorest parts of Asia and Africa.
