Dan Gediman, Muhammad Khan and This I Believe

Each week Bob is joined by Dan Gediman, the Executive Director of This I Believe, Inc. to discuss one of the original essays from the 1950s radio series. This week’s featured essay is by Muhammad Zafrulla Khan. He was the first Foreign Minister of Pakistan, president of the All-India Muslim League in 1931, leader of the Indian delegation to the League of Nations Assembly in 1939 and leader of the Pakistan Delegation to the United Nations. In later years, Khan was a judge for and president of the International Court of Justice at the Hague. As a devout Muslim, Khan believes the object of man’s existence is to seek union with God through the cultivation of divine attributes within himself.
