Viva Palestina reaches its goal to Gaza in a convoy bringing aids like wheelchairs that would not be available to the needy there after the onslaught of Israel on Gaza. It is particularly of importance to note what he said about Tony Blair, a non-representative of Britain but the people are, this group after their perilous journeyare. He ends with the slogan, ‘We are all Palesatinians…’

Another very significant fact remains that BBC said not a word about this great achievement as many believe it is ZBC!

It was officially announced in Jamatkhanas across Canada yesterday, May 17th, that the opening of the Aga Khan Park will, Inshallah, take place in the presence of Mawlana Hazar Imam, His Highness the Aga Khan, on Monday May 25th, 2015.

I was among the thousands of Ismailis across Canada who received this tiny object of sublime grace and beauty on the occasion of the 78th Salgirah (birthday) of Mawlana Hazar Imam, His Highness the Aga Khan, on December 13, 2014.
