  • 1907-1914 – Founding Member and President of the All-India Muslim League
  • 1921 – Founding Member and Vice Chancellor of Aligarh University

  • 1937-38 – President of the League of Nations

“Indeed, all the problems that fall to the League of Nations may be ultimately reduced to one – that of man, and the dignity of man. It is in that sense that the work of the League assumes its true significance and acquires its permanent value. The tribulations of one people are the tribulations of all. That which weakens one weakens all. That which is a gain to one is surely a gain to all. This is no empty ideal. It is a veritable compass to guide aright the efforts of statesmen in every country and of all men of good will who, desiring the good of their own people, desire the good of the whole world.”

– Imam Sultan Muhammad Shah Aga Khan III (Speech to League of Nations)
