    I cannot make a specific comment, because not enough information is provided. What is the purpose of this complex? Who will use the complex? It this a gift to toronto with no strings attached?

Or is is a non-religiously affiliated complex to be used as museum, classrooms, art classes, and a number of non-sectarian activities involvling no religious or political themes?

  2. HI
    Its clearly stated in the above para that it is a Islamic Museum and a Ismaili Centre. Museum to promote and preserve Islamic Art and culture and Ismaili center means a religious and learning center where not only Ismaili perform there prayers but all other people come and learn about the Islamic and Ismaili fundamentals. Hope this clear your query

    if not then do visit the following sites:
