Shah's son visits the Netherlands

Tuesday 29 May 2012

Reza Pahlavi, son of the former Shah of Persia, is in the Netherlands on Thursday to speak at a closed session of parliament.

Pahlavi, once crown prince of what is now Iran, will discuss the current situation in his home country and the case for democracy and human rights.

He was born in Tehran and left for air force training at the age of 17. During his absence, his late father was overthrown and the establishment of the clerical regime made it impossible for him to return.

He lives in exile in the US with his wife and three children.

On Wednesday evening, he will speak at a political cafe in The Hague.

We hope to see the day that the Crown Prince is crowned as the Shah of the Imperial Government of Persia/Iran. Long live the Pahlavi dynasty.

I did not get what you mean in this sentence "Pahlavi, once crown prince of what is now Iran" that country has been called Iran for over 25oo years and there were no changes in the geographical borders since Shah's dynasty. Furthermore, He is still the crown prince and currently lives in the US as well France.His youngest sister committed suicide secondary to depression few years back in a flat(not flate) .

Thanks to the king of Iran. many people still loves him as a king of Iran and respect for him and his family. My request is to accelerate this process and help him to help to human rights in Iran.

His father was no different than the current Islamic regime. The levels of coercion were at the same rate as jumhori-e islami. The violence level is the same as well. My family was harassed by SAVAK (one never seen again after his torture) and the same people were targeted by Khomeini. People think there are two sides and there are not. This sniffling little ex royal has no legitimate claim to even the hairs on his chest! His grandfather was legitimate, and stood as one of the most effective kings we ever had. Mohammad Reza was the opposite.
Iran has always been Iran. The authors of this article should refrain from engaging is such hegemony against our people!

We Iranians support Prince Reza and his efforts to bring democracy and freedom to our country. Although his father made mistakes he seems to be different and many people are supportive of his efforts.
