  1. Thank you the support! I hope everyone will get a chance to see the film.
    The title in the email that Harvard sent out was a working title and the final title is now:
    AN ISLAMIC CONSCIENCE: the Aga Khan and the Ismailis
    It can get confusing but there will be different broadcasters who will re-name the documentary to fit their channel. For example the broadcaster in Canada has chosen to call the same film: AGA KHAN: A VOICE OF REASON.

    Wish us luck for the premiere tomorrow!


  2. That website “www.agakhanfilm.org” is there no more… Is there any other info about this film, where else would it broadcast or shown…


    I hope premiere went super…


  3. Shamir,

    Do you have plans to make the transcripts of the panel discussion available or post the the entire program on the much awaited web site.

    What about making a DVD available for purchase once the documentary has been televised.
