His Highness the Aga Khan, Canadian Museum for Human Rights
A life-size depiction of Mawlana Hazar Imam, His Highness the Aga Khan, at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Mawlana Hazar Imam is depicted with other Honorary Canadian Citizens in a special section on the floor dedicated to “Turning Points of Humanity. The caption in the photo reads: “AGA KHAN IV: The fourth Aga Khan, spiritual leader of the world’s Ismaili Muslim communities was named an Honorary Canadian Citizen in 2009 for advancing tolerance and human right.” The last line in the caption, presumably crediting the photo, says, “French Delegation of the AKDN Foundation.” I wondered whether this credit was correct and wrote to the Museum to verify it. I took the photo when I visited the Museum in Winnipeg during my 4500 km drive from Vancouver to Ottawa. Please click on image to download a high resolution version of the image.
