Aga Khan III Called to Mediate Between Faiths - 1893

Sunday, 1893, January 1

Sir Sultan Mohamed Shah, Aga Khan III was called upon to settle major riots between Muslims and Hindus.
Owing to his influence, his followers not only refrained from participating in riots but helped the authorities in restoring peace and order. They gave shelter to a number of Hindus although two of His Royal Highness's personal servants had been killed in the riots.

In Bombay, Poona, Kutch and Kathiawar, huge camps were opened by His Royal Highness and they remained open for nearly six months. The hungry and the destitute in thousands found sustenance and shelter at these centers at the expense of the benevolent Prince Aga Khan III.
