The Aga Khan was born on December 13, 1936 and became Imam on July 11, 1957. He is not a bearded typical spiritual leader but a moderate voice among Muslim leaders in the world. According to Wikipedia, “the Aga Khan is particularly interested in the elimination of global poverty; the advancement of women; the promotion of Islamic culture, art, and architecture; and promoting pluralistic values in society. He is the founder and chairman of the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN), one of the largest private development networks in the world, which toils towards social, economic, and cultural development in Asia and Africa.”

God! We are going towards the medieval ages again ignoring the farmans (guidelines) of the current Imam, who interprets the Holly Quran according to the needs of the time.
Oh God, where are we destined to... and where our Imam wants to see us?
|The disgraced Farman Ali|
"To be frank Mr. Farman Ali can cash even his dirt through his shenanigans," said a member of the NGO. "I've never seen such a visionless person in my entire life, and am surprised how the newspapers accommodate him... may be therefore our press is considered the most irresponsible in the world."
Sources say that in those days the coverage of news of Giglit, the capital city was ignored but Gojal was increased... also some contributors from Gojal were accommodated in Dawn's Metro section ("it's against the nature of Farman") to get the confidence of the Wakhi and Ismaili people.
"At that time Manzoor Ali was active in Gilgit and he was in direct contact with Farman Ali," a source said. "Now they both are in Islamabad and run the affair of the terrorized people with the help of the ISI and MI. Farman also claims to be in direct contact with President Zardari through presidential spokesperson Farhatullah Babar."
