Renowned musicians Salim and Sulaiman performed at the dinner, accompanied by six youth from across India – one from each region of the country where the Jamat has a presence.
Mumbai, 28 September 2013 – Mawlana Hazar Imam’s 11-day visit to India drew to a close today.
During the visit, which included a ceremony marking the restoration of Humayun’s Tomb and the inauguration of the Aga Khan Academy, Hyderabad, Mawlana Hazar Imam met with senior government leaders at the national and state levels. Hazar Imam also devoted a considerable amount of time to meeting with the Jamat of Western India, who gathered at Hasanabad Jamatkhana.
Yesterday evening, Mawlana Hazar Imam attended a banquet hosted in his honour by the Jamati institutions of India. Renowned musicians Salim and Sulaiman performed at the dinner, accompanied by six youth from across India – one from each region of the country where the Jamat has a presence.
At the dinner, Jamati leaders presented Mawlana Hazar Imam with a gift of a bronze incense burner. Dated to the 18th or 19th century, the vessel exemplifies the fine metalwork produced by the craftsmen of Mughal-era India.
