Must see: The Aga Khan’s compassionate heart

“It is evident that His Highness the Aga Khan has built institutions not just with stones but with a heart full of compassion” – CCTV News

Having seen him in many many parts of the world, and having talked to him at length…there is one thing which distinguishes him, which is not in the buildings, not in the organization. It is the extraordinary sense of humanity that he has.” – James Wolfensohn

  1. Thanks for posting articles such as these on Barakah. Having heard the Aga Khan’s speeches from 1957, what he looked and sounded like then, and hearing his speeches and what he looks like and sounds like now are very different. However, the kindness in his heart and face are unchanged and bring tears to my eyes. He has achived so much in his lifetime and I am sure he will continue to provide wisdom and support to mankind for many more years.
