2007, July 10: The Ismaili community around the world is celebrating the golden jubilee of Prince Karim Aga Khan's ascension to the throne of the Imamat on July 11, 1957. 'Being the leader of the Ismaili community is not only a spiritual role, but it is also a material role,' said Iqbal Ahmed, a spokesman for Vancouver's Ismaili Muslim community. 'His responsibility is to not only interpret the faith for the Ismailis but also to look after the material aspects of life for the community, improving the quality of life - not only for the Ismailis but also for the societies in which the Ismaili community lives.'
