  2. Congratulations to Prince Amyn, working hand in hand with people of all cultures and restoring old but beautiful buildings which have been hidden for a long time. He surely has a huge portfolio like his brother The Aga Khan and their untiring efforts to rebuild, reunite, building bridges with other communities and so much more.
