February 19th, 1969
My dear spiritual children
You will be happy to know that under my Firman His Highness the Mir of Hunza, with the assistance of Haji Qudrat-Ullah Beg submitted to me a draft constitution for my Jamats of Hunza State, Gilgit Agency, Chitral State and of Central Asia generally. This constitution has been drawn up in order to better the administration of our Jamati affairs and thus be of considerable benefit to all my spiritual children living in the afore-mentioned areas. Indeed the existence of such constitution for the Ismaili Jamat in Pakistan and many other countries has proved to be significant step in enabling the Jamat to run their affairs methodically and consistently and in keeping with our times. It would not be right if the Jamats of Hunza State, Gilgit Agency, Chitral State and Central Asia do not benefit from a similar means with which to improve the administration of their affairs.
                   I have approved the new constitution and wish it to become effective on the occasion of Navroz, the 21st  March of this year.
                   From Navroz onwards I wish to every spiritual child in the afore-mentioned areas to live by rules of the new constitution and to make it to his or her personal responsibility to ensure that the constitution is put into practice in the spirit in which the document has been conceived. I particularly wish to emphasise that the Mukhis as defined in the new constitution are not to be compared with the ‘Qadimi’ Mukhis.
          On this historic occasion of the introduction of the first constitution of my spiritual children in the afore-mentioned parts of the world. I send each and every one of you individually my warmest and most affectionate loving blessings. You are all constantly in my heart and thoughts.

                                                         
Yours affectionately,
                                                          Aga Khan
                                   


23rd May, 1973
My dear spiritual child,
                   I send you my most affectionate paternal maternal loving blessings for your good work and devoted services reported to me by Vazir Amirali Currim and by the Central Asia delegates during their third recent visit to Paris.
I am very happy with your excellent work and I send you and all the members of your family my most affectionate loving blessings. You are all constantly in my heart and thoughts.

                                                                        Yours affectionately,
Wazir Qudratullah Beg,
                            Aga Khan
Hunza

Remarks by Major E.H. Cobb, Political agent, Gilgit;-
The opening of the Gilgit Jamatkhana was performed on Tuesday March 27th 1945 by Raja Zafar Khan of Gilgit who kindly gifted the land on which it has been built in the presence of Major E.H.Cobb O.B.., Political Agent, Gilgit, British officers and officials of the Gilgit Agency as well as the Mir of Nagir and Rajas of Punial, Kuh Ghizar, Ishkoman, Yasin and a large number of persons from the Gilgit Agency.
All the guests were hospitably entertained with refreshments and a sumptuous” dawat” according to the custom of the Ismaili Sect.
It is hoped that this Jamat Khana, which has been completed after 5 years will fulfill a long cherished need of the followers of the Ismaili Sect at Gilgit. The successful completion of the work is entirely due to the strenuous and untiring efforts of the Nzim Kudratullah Beg of Hunza and Gilgit.
