Iran’s exiled Crown Prince calls for a monarchist revolution in Iran – Royal Central

Some call him an Emperor, some a Crown Prince and by his Iranian followers, he is referred to as His Imperial Majesty Reza Shah II. Still, the Crown Prince of Iran, Reza Pahlavi, has now called for a monarchist revolution in his birth country of Iran and calls for Trump and American help to transform the dictatorship to a parliamentarian monarchy.

It should be said that the Crown Prince wants to have a peaceful revolution that will be carried out by the Iranian people, and he does not envision an armed revolution with foreign military troops on the ground. Asked how his envisioned peaceful revolution could play out in Iran, Pahlavi said it would need to begin with the labour unions starting a nationwide strike.

Pahlavi’s father, Mohammad Reza Shah, took power following a coup in 1953 engineered by Britain and the United States. Under the Crown Prince’s father’s secular and pro-Western rule, Iran experienced a rapid modernization programme financed by oil revenues. The Crown Prince is clear in his statements; he does not want the same thing [a coup backed by Western powers] to happen again. “Western governments need to keep their distance and not threaten military action,” said His Imperial Highness.

I believe this would be of great benefit to the Iranian (Persian) people, many of whom are not happy with the rule of the Ayatollahs, and to the rest of the world, as well, for whom the Islamic Republic of Iran is well-known as a state sponsor of terrorism and a persistent threat to regional security. Respectful salute to His Imperial Majesty Reza Shah II, and prayers for the achievement of this goal!
