Mawlana Hazar Imam to visit France and the United Kingdom

The Ismaili Leaders’ International Forum (LIF) has announced that Mawlana Hazar Imam will grant Diamond Jubilee visits to France and the United Kingdom in the latter part of June 2018.

Alongside engaging in activities relating to initiatives of the Ismaili Imamat and the Aga Khan Development Network, Mawlana Hazar Imam will meet with the Jamats of the France and UK jurisdictions, and will grant a Diamond Jubilee Darbar in each country.

The announcement included a reminder that both visits will be for Jamati members residing in the jurisdictions of the Ismaili Councils for the United Kingdom and France respectively. Members of the Jamat from outside these jurisdictions are therefore respectfully requested to refrain from travelling to the UK or France in the expectation of being able to participate in these programmes.

In July 2018, Mawlana Hazar Imam will visit Portugal to meet with the Jamat of the Portuguese jurisdiction, and to attend events marking the conclusion of the Diamond Jubilee year. For more information on the week-long Diamond Jubilee Celebration to be held in Lisbon in July, visit
