Shortly after we checked in at Hotel Tajikistan in Dushanbe, it shook. But this tremor was quickly dissolved into a rush of intellectual as well as emotional vibrations as we embarked on a remarkable journey of discovery. And while the sojourn in Tajikistan, which lasted for more than ten days, was designed around the visit there of the Aga Khan, with specific focus on the activities of the Aga Khan Development Network, I could not help looking at everything with reference to what is happening in Pakistan. We know about the great battles of history that have been fought in Central Asia.

Pour l'eau, des Tadjiks font plus confiance à l'Aga Khan qu'à l'ONU-2003-09-02

Les fontaines de Douchanbe, la capitale tadjike, ont célébré ces trois derniers jours le déroulement, sous l'égide de l'ONU, d'un forum sur la crise de l'eau, mais nombre de Tadjiks, notamment parmi les musulmans ismaéliens, font surtout confiance à leur chef spirituel, l'Aga Khan, pour résoudre le problème.

Dévastée par une guerre civile dans les années 1990, l'ancienne république soviétique d'Asie centrale a fait bonne figure pour accueillir le forum consacré aux problèmes de désertification et des maladies infectieuses transmises par l'eau, qui s'est clos lundi soir.

Fountains played all around Tajikistan's capital Dushanbe for a UN-sponsored water forum this week, but many in this war-weary Central Asian country drew greater comfort from the visit of Ismaili Muslim leader the Aga Khan.

Having been wracked by civil war in the 1990s, this remote mountain republic of 6.5 million people was determined to show the world a new face at the International Fresh Water Forum, intended to help ease ex-Soviet Central Asias deepening crisis of desertification and disease.

Your Excellency President Rahmonov,
Your Worship the Mayor of Dushanbe,
Your Excellencies,
Distinguished Guests,

This ceremony represents a milestone in the history of the Ismaili Muslim Community’s presence in Central Asia, a presence which dates back to the second century of Islam. For me personally, as the 49th hereditary Imam of the Ismailis, this is a day of great happiness. It is also fitting that the foundation ceremony of a landmark cultural and religious centre should coincide with the celebration of the one thousandth anniversary of the birth of Syedna Nasir Khusraw.
