2004, May 21: He didn't attract as much attention as the Dalai Lama. He rarely does. But by the time he had slipped in and out of Ottawa on his private jet, the Aga Khan, spiritual leader of the world's 15 million Imami Ismaili Muslims, had given the city, and the country, a major gift. The Geneva-born imam, who is now based just outside Paris, has announced the creation of the Global Centre for Pluralism, which will be based in Ottawa.

Excerpt of comments made by the Aga Khan, spiritual leader of Ismaili Muslims, to the Citizen's editorial board during his Ottawa visit on June 7

The industrialised world really has developed in the Judeo-Christian context of society and the Islamic world has been significantly absent from general education. I am not pointing at Canada. I am saying generally in the western world.
