Mr Talbot, Ladies and Gentlemen, honoured guests and members of the Asia Society

By the Islamic calendar we will in just a few months enter the 1400th year of our faith. In the Christian accounting of time, we stand on the brink of the 21st century. It seems fitting to reflect, to consider what Islam has been and what it is to become in this new age. It is a time to speak about hazards and about visions.

NEW YORK — He is a moderate Muslim religious leader and a descendant of the Prophet Muhammad. He is also a twice-married jet-setter, and he owns hundreds of racehorses, valuable stud farms, an exclusive yacht club on Sardinia and a lavish estate near Paris.

He has poured money into poorer, neglected parts of the world, often into businesses as basic as making fishnets, plastic bags and matches, while also teaming up with private equity powerhouses like the Blackstone Group on a $750 million hydroelectric system in Uganda.

Speech by His Highness the Aga Khan at the acceptance of the Asia Game Changers Lifetime Achievement Award
At Cipriani, New York City, NY
November 1st 2017

Let me begin by expressing my deep gratitude and my humility in receiving this wonderful award.

When my grandfather died in 1957, I was twenty years old. I was a student at Harvard and I had to make a choice as to how I could combine my continuing education and the institutional responsibility that I had.
