  2. Mr. Editor,
    before up-loading news you should care for spelling of all very very important nouns, you should correct the spelling, it “AGA KHAN” not “Agha Khan”, You should be very conscious because you know in dis matter we have different emotions.

    My conratulations not only for Ismaili community, but for all Pakistanies for His Highness The Aga Khan’s (Hazir Imam A. S) visit to Pakistan, because you accept it or not, this countary has become independent with a Spritual Power and therefore no one can break it.

    InshaAllah situations will be normal very soon, current situations are existing due to niglegance of people and result of lower unity.

  3. Dear Sarfraz Amin

    I respect your emotions. But PT did not develop the text above. It was copy pasted from the source mentioned at the bottom.

    I will, however, change the spelling because Aga is the spelling used by AKDN.



  4. Mr. Amin himself should walk his talk, he repeated the same mistake and few more spell mistakes. did u notice or not
    Ya HH, S visit ofcourse is blessing but majority of the people are uneducated of the things in general and particular any way

  5. Please dont fight on Spellings and no need to expose your anger or emotions to all.we all know how important MHI is for all of us but SA u shud control your emotions brother.

  6. Aga Khan has emotional and personal ties to Pakistan and his visit reflects it. After completing a tiering Golden Jubilee visit to Canada, he found Pakistan in distress and he took out his time before heading for Singapore. This quick visit shows how much is concerned about this Islamic republic.

    Most of my family members complains that Imam went and going to almost every country in the world to grace his Golden Jubilee Darbar, except Paksitan. Now it is very visible that although he went to every country but when he noticed that the country where his grandfather was born and where his most important imamat institute (AKU) exists is in trouble then he took no time to reach that country.

    We all are blessed for having such a caring Imam.
