News from the Cristal Ball have now arrived

Aga Khan to pay visit to Tajikistan

22.10.2008 09:44

Author: Victoria Naumova

DUSHANBE, October 22, 2008, Asia-Plus -- []His Highness the Aga Khan, Imam (spiritual leader) of the Shia Imami Ismaili Muslims, will arrive in Tajikistan on October 31 for a five-day visit.[/b]

The visit will come in response to an invitation from Tajikistan's Government, and within the context of His Highness' Golden Jubilee - the Aga Khan acceded to the Ismaili Imamat on July 11 1957 and is visiting some 30 countries around the world which have long-standing and close relations with the Imamat to express his gratitude and friendship with governments, leaders, and other partners of the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN).

According to AKDN Tajikistan, during his five-day visit to Tajikistan, His Highness the Aga Khan will hold talks with a number of high-ranking Tajik state officials.

His Highness the Aga Khan became Imam of the Shia Imami Ismaili Muslims on July 11, 1957 at the age of 20, succeeding his grandfather, Sir Sultan Mahomed Shah Aga Khan. He is the 49th hereditary Imam of the Shia Imami Ismaili Muslims and a direct descendant of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) through his cousin and son-in-law, Ali, the first Imam, and his wife Fatima, the Prophet's daughter.

The Aga Khan is founder and Chairman of the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN), which brings together a number of development agencies, institutions, and programs that work primarily in the poorest parts of Asia and Africa. AKDN agencies conduct their programs without regard to the faith, origin or gender.

Operating in Tajikistan since 1992, AKDN draws on a strong base of experience in working with mountain societies. It works in all regions of the country and employs approximately 3,000 people through its operations and investments.

AKDN works towards the vision of an economically dynamic, politically stable, intellectually vibrant, and culturally tolerant Tajikistan. This is achieved by supporting the establishment of programs and institutions that allow the government, private sector and civil society to play complementary roles in increasing prosperity and creativity within a pluralistic society. The Network brings together individual agencies that operate in a range of areas – from economic development to education, rural development to cultural revitalization, health care to financial services. Together these agencies collaborate towards a common goal - to build institutions and programs that can respond to the contemporary challenges and opportunities of social, economic and cultural growth in Tajikistan.

YAM,

I know the Official web site at http://www.goldenjubileetajikistan.com/darbar/ says "The Dushanbe Darbar will be held at the Dushanbe Stadium."

However Dushanbe Didar date is still not confirmed. In plain English, it means that it may still be canceled.

Please do not say I am saying it is canceled or not canceled, I have not said any such thing. Do not misinterpret. Tajikistan is not an easy country and having some logic in the back of the mind will not hurt.

GBAO didars however looks more confirmed so if you are in Dushanbe already, try to find out what is going on about the Dushanbe dates and if necessary plan instead to attend GBAO didars to be on the safe side, just in case.

See you there!

In the course of the talks, Zarifi and Prince Amyn Aga Khan, in particular, considered issues related to activities of the AKDN development agencies such as the Aga Khan Fund for Economic Development (AKFED), the Aga Khan Foundation (AKF) and its Mountain Societies Development Support Program (MSDSP) aimed at enhancement of education, health, energy, agrarian and tourism sectors in Tajikistan.

The two discussed the progress of implementation of the projects for construction of the Dushanbe Serena Hotel and the Ismaili Center in Dushanbe, as well as construction of small power plants and transport infrastructure in Tajikistan.

During the meeting, the minister drew attention of Prince Amy Aga Khan to implementation of additional projects for enhancement of Tajikistan's agrarian sector.

The sides also discussed the progress of the AKDN humanitarian projects in Tajikistan, the Tajik MFA said.

We will recall that Prince Amyn Aga Khan, younger brother of His Highness the Aga Khan, arrived in Dushanbe for a short visit on October 21. During his stay in Dushanbe, Prince Amyn Aga Khan reviewed the AKDN programs in Tajikistan.

Further to my previous message, if you are in Dushanbe, please go to Khorog or you will probably miss all the didars. Do not wait for official announcement about didar in Dushanbe, by the time they tell you it may be canceled, it will be too late for you to go to the Badakshan Didars.

Plan ahead, leave NOW, share a jeep but please do not just sit in Dushanbe waiting for Didar dates.

Jamat prepares for Mawlana Hazar Imam's arrival in Tajikistan

The Jamat of Tajikistan is eagerly awaiting the commencement of Mawlana Hazar Imam's visit with anticipation and excitement. From sprucing up and the streets to holding celebratory community gatherings, members of the Jamat are preparing for the first Darbars in Tajikistan in ten years.

The Gorno-Badakhshan province is home to a majority of the country's Jamat, and its administrative capital, Khorog, has been teeming with activity.

In 1995, on the occasion of Mawlana Hazar Imam's first Deedar in Tajikistan, Jamati members from Khorog constructed a rock arrangement reading "Welcome Our Hazir Imam" on the side of the Pamir Mountains. Over the past few weeks, a contingent of volunteers has undertaken the arduous process of adding the words Golden Jubilee below the existing sign. After hiking up several hundred metres to the sign's location, they passed large rocks from one person to the next, to set them in place. Later, they formed a brigade to haul water up from the river, in order to brighten the words for the upcoming visit.

Elsewhere, construction continues at the Khorog Park, a project of the Aga Khan Trust for Culture, while families gather around the park's newly installed benches and playground equipment. At the Aga Khan Lycée, the first private school in Gorno-Badakhshan and home to over 950 students in grades 1-11, pupils and teachers are busy cleaning and decorating their school. "We want to show Hazar Imam how the school has changed since he opened it in 1998, ten years ago," said a primary teacher at the Lycée. Students have painted the corridors and created special learning areas including a puppet theatre, art, music and nature centres and a math corner.


Families have already begun celebrating the upcoming visit in Khorog Park, which is being developed by the Aga Khan Trust for Culture. Photo: Gordon Cumming
In Dushanbe, Mawlana Hazar Imam is expected to meet senior government officials and visit AKDN projects in the city including the Dushanbe Serena Hotel and the Ismaili Centre. "People consider the Golden Jubilee visit of Mawlana Hazar Imam to Tajikistan to be a very significant, historic and unique event, as it has been celebrated by the Ismaili community during the year and brought lots of new ideas and perspectives to the community," remarked one member of the Jamat from the Zarafshon district of Dushanbe.

An Ismaili teacher of Tajik language and literature echoes the sentiment of anticipation: "The first Deedar was like a dream for me," she says in reflection. "Now we are waiting consciously for the upcoming visit and I am full of thoughts, emotions and impatiently expecting to see our beloved Hazar Imam once again. This happy long-expected day is going to happen very soon."

Aga Khan arrives in Dushanbe today

31.10.2008 08:20

Author: Victoria Naumova


DUSHANBE, October 31, 2008, Asia-Plus -- His Highness the Aga Khan, Imam (spiritual leader) of the Shia Ismaili Muslims, and founder and Chairman of the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN), is arriving in Dushanbe today afternoon on a six-day official visit.

The Aga Khan’s visit comes at the invitation of the Government of the Republic of Tajikistan and is one of many being undertaken to commemorate his Golden Jubilee as Imam of the Ismaili Muslims. His Highness succeeded his grandfather, Sir Sultan Mahomed Shah Aga Khan, as Imam on 11 July 1957.

Today, the Aga Khan will meet with Foreign Minister Hamrokhon Zarifi and President Emomali Rahmon. Discussions will include topics of mutual interest such as the ongoing partnerships between the Government of Tajikistan and the AKDN in the areas of educational, social, and economic development.

In Dushanbe, His Highness the Aga Khan is also scheduled to visit current AKDN construction projects in the capital of Dushanbe, including the Serena Hotel and the Ismaili Center.

The Aga Khan will continue to Gorno Badakhshan, where he will meet with members of the Ismaili community. He will visit AKDN project sites in the region, including the Khorog Park, which is currently being rehabilitated by the Aga Khan Trust for Culture, as well as the School for Professional and Continuing Education (SPCE) of the University of Central Asia (UCA).

The Aga Khan’s visit to Tajikistan is part of a 10-day trip to Central Asia, including Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan; all three countries signed an international treaty establishing the UCA in 2000. In Kazakhstan, he will meet with President Nursultan Nazarbayev and other Government ministers as well as visit sites of the UCA main campus and SPCE in Tekeli. In Kyrgyzstan, the Aga Khan will meet with senior government representatives and will travel to Naryn to review the main campus site of the UCA and the construction of the new Town Campus that will house SPCE.

It is to be noted that since Tajikistan’s independence, the Aga Khan has poured millions of dollars into the country in aid.

The Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN) brings together a number of development agencies, institutions, and programs that work primarily in the poorest parts of Asia and Africa. AKDN agencies conduct their programs without regard to the faith, origin or gender. Operating in Tajikistan since 1992, AKDN draws on a strong base of experience in working with mountain societies. It works in all regions of the country and employs approximately 3,000 people through its operations and investments.

AKDN works towards the vision of an economically dynamic, politically stable, intellectually vibrant, and culturally tolerant Tajikistan.

Together these agencies collaborate towards a common goal - to build institutions and programs that can respond to the contemporary challenges and opportunities of social, economic and cultural growth in Tajikistan.
