Spiritual leader heads a vast development network supported in part by thousands of Ismaili Muslims in Georgia, a community he first visited in 2008

When the Aga Khan’s private jet touched down in Atlanta, he must have had an inkling of the type of reception he would receive.

The spiritual leader of the Ismaili Muslims, a Shia sect with an estimated 15-20 million adherents worldwide, had visited the city a decade ago during his 50th anniversary year.

Mr Talbot, Ladies and Gentlemen, honoured guests and members of the Asia Society

By the Islamic calendar we will in just a few months enter the 1400th year of our faith. In the Christian accounting of time, we stand on the brink of the 21st century. It seems fitting to reflect, to consider what Islam has been and what it is to become in this new age. It is a time to speak about hazards and about visions.

NEW YORK — He is a moderate Muslim religious leader and a descendant of the Prophet Muhammad. He is also a twice-married jet-setter, and he owns hundreds of racehorses, valuable stud farms, an exclusive yacht club on Sardinia and a lavish estate near Paris.

He has poured money into poorer, neglected parts of the world, often into businesses as basic as making fishnets, plastic bags and matches, while also teaming up with private equity powerhouses like the Blackstone Group on a $750 million hydroelectric system in Uganda.

President Reagan, Prince Hussain & his goldfish

In the 1980s, when President Reagan was about to hold his first ever meeting with Mikhail Gorbachev in Switzerland, the President was staying at a fine residence outside Geneva on the shore of Lake Geneva. The villa belonged to Prince Karim Aga Khan. The Prince, the Begum and their three children, Princess Zahra and her brothers Prince Rahim and Prince Hussain, had moved out so that the President could use the house.
