Jubilee concert organized to celebrate Aga Khan’s Diamond Jubilee
A jubilee concert was held at the International Convention Centre, Bashundhara to mark the 60th anniversary, the Diamond Jubilee, of Aga Khan’s accession to the Ismaili Imamat. The concert, organized on April 6 was attended by around 2,000 guests, including government officials, diplomats, business and civic leaders, and members of the Ismaili and other surrounding communities. The concert was a part of a series of commemorative events organized around the world. India’s two most respected and globally renowned artists and composers, brother duo, Salim and Sulaiman Merchant were the concert's highlights, having scored for over a hundred Indian films and over twenty TV shows. They have also performed in several live concerts all over the world, including the opening ceremony of the FIFA World Cup 2010. Chief Guest Asaduzzaman Noor, the minister of Cultural Affairs, congratulated Aga Khan and conveyed his appreciation for the efforts of Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN) in Bangladesh and globally in his speech at the event. Aga Khan is the Founder and Chairman of AKDN, one of the most comprehensive development networks in the world today. AKDN operates in over 30 countries, primarily in Central and South Asia, Eastern and Western Africa and the Middle East. Inspired by Islam to be compassionate, responsible, and caring, AKDN works for the welfare of all citizens regardless of their gender, origin, or religion.
