Prince Amyn's speech in Houston for Ismaili Centre development 2022-08-11

Thursday, 2022, August 11

Prince Amyn joined Honorable Mayor of Houston Sylvester Turner earlier today to engage in a dialogue around what the Center will represent.

President Al-Karim Alidina of the Ismaili Council for the USA welcomed guests to the luncheon hosted in downtown Houston, and expressed the Jamat’s gratitude to Mawlana Hazar Imam for establishing the first high-profile Center in the United States.

Soon after, guests were treated to an architectural flythrough video that offered a glimpse of what the newest Center and its gardens will look and feel like. The preview situated the Center among its surroundings and illustrated the scale of the venture.

“The Ismaili Center is an ambitious project not just for the Ismaili Muslim community, but for all Houstonians,” said Prince Amyn in his remarks. “What we are building on the site across the Buffalo Bayou is a Center dedicated to advancing pluralism, public understanding, and civic outreach.”
