In this Reuters’ archive video from 1936, Aga Khan’s son Aly Salman Khan (father of Karim Shah, current Aga Khan) poses after getting married to Joan Yarde-Buller (mother of Karim Shah, current Aga Khan) in a Church.

Joan left Guinness for Prince Aly Khan, the eldest son of Aga Khan III, the 48th Imam of the Nizari Ismailis, and Guinness successfully sued Joan and Khan on grounds of adultery. Joan and Khan did not defend the charges and the judge, Justice Bucknill, granted Guinness a decree nisi and full custody of their son and ordered Khan to pay court costs.


Aly Solomon Aga Khan (father of Hazir Imam) with his girlfriend Bettina. She was in the same car that Aly Solomon Khan was driving. Bettina was lucky enough to survive the accident, but her unborn child Aly Solomon Khan and her future husband lost their lives


This family claims to be a direct descendant of Ali (RA) and Ismailis give them their hard-earned money for “eternal salvation.” A ridiculous bargain that has made Aga Khan Karim Shah one of the richest impostors ever alive!
