Thanks to the Programme Owners, interviewer and the very respect

Farhad Daftary deserves my hearty commendations and appreciation, as a believer in Ismaili-Islam and a formal community-teacher and a student of Ismaili thought and history, for his clarity of thought and the grounded research, as he speaks with ease in that light, on the subject in the Programme.
