Creating a credible democracy in Iraq will be a long and difficult process, according to the Aga Khan, billionaire spiritual leader of the world's 15 million Ismaili Muslims, in an interview to appear on Tuesday.'Democracy has not been applied in Iraq for a very long time,' he said in Tuesday's edition of the French Roman Catholic newspaper La Croix.
'Putting in place a credible system will take time and will be difficult. Afghanistan proves that,' said Prince Karim Aga Khan, leader of the Ismaili group of Islam's Shi'ite branch.

Instead, in two decades it has become and remained the most outstanding in the world, and continues to hold that leadership. What were the goals that led you to establish the Award?
