Sindh CM fetes Prince Karim Aga Khan

KARACHI: A luncheon was hosted Sunday at Chief Minister House in honour of the spiritual leader of the Ismaili community, Prince Karim Aga Khan, by Dr. Arbab Ghulam Rahim.

Speaking on the occasion, Rahim said that Sindh was a land of Sufis, Walis and the Dervish, and was the gateway for the spread of Islam in the subcontinent—a destination of peace. “Sindh is a native place for Prince Karim Aga Khan—one of his ancestors, Prince Aga Hasan Ali—made the province his home 150 years ago,” Rahim said, adding that Sir Aga Khan was also born in Sindh, and his invaluable and selfless services for Pakistan would never be forgotten.

“The services rendered by Prince Karim Aga Khan for the welfare of Pakistani people undoubtedly qualify for high praise. He has played a significant role, particularly in the development of health and education,” the CM said.

Inviting Khan to invest further in the area, Rahim said that the ideal law and order situation in Sindh was attracting domestic and foreign investment in the province. He pointed out the possible investment avenues—particularly the provision of modern facilities to tourists at coastal areas, Rani Kot and Gorakh Hill Station in Dadu. The Aga Khan assured of complete cooperation for the development and progress of Sindh. app
