Prince Hassan and Princess Sarvath Current Events 1: July 2004-September 2005

His Royal Highness Prince El Hassan bin Talal of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan

Founder and Director of the Hashemite Aid and Relief Agency, Centre for Educational Development, and the Institute for Diplomacy, and President of the Club of Rome

His Royal Highness is the youngest son of King Talal bin Abdullah and Queen Zein El Sharaf, and the younger brother of His Late Majesty King Hussein. His family is directly descended from the Prophet Muhammad and is the forty-second generation.

Prince Hassan graduated from Oxford University with a B.A. (Hon.) and M.A. in Oriental Studies. His Royal Highness has also been awarded numerous honorary doctorates from notable institutions worldwide.


Prince Hassan served as His Majesty King Hussein's closest political advisor, confidante, and deputy, as well as acting as Regent in the King's absence from the country.

He is the President of the Club of Rome. He has initiated, founded and is actively involved in a number of Jordanian and international institutes and committees. In Jordan, he established and now directs the Islamic Scientific Academy; the Tri-annual Conferences on the History and Archeology of Jordan; the Hashemite Aid and Relief Agency; the Center for Educational Development; the Institute for Diplomacy; and most recently, the new Al al-Bait University in Mafraq.

At the 36th Session of the United Nations in 1981, His Royal Highness proposed the establishment of the New International Humanitarian Order, which led to his being asked by the UN Secretary-General to found and co-chair the Independent Commission on International Humanitarian Issues (ICIHI). The final Report of the Commission was adopted as a resolution at the 42nd General Assembly.

coca cola,

Here is something I came across on the net re Princess Sarvath:

"On August 28th 1968, His Royal Highness married Her Royal Highness Princess Sarvath, who comes from a distinguished family of the Indian Subcontinent. Her late father, H.E. Mr. Mohammed Ikramullah worked closely with the founder of Pakistan, Mohammed Ali Janah, and was Pakistan's first Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs and many times an Ambassador. Her Royal Highness’s mother, Begum Shaista Suhrawardy Ikramullah, is a writer and the first female Member of Parliament in Pakistan, as well as an Ambassador. Moreover, Princess Sarvath's paternal uncle was Vice-President of India, and her maternal uncle was Prime Minister of Pakistan. Their Royal Highnesses have four children: Princess Rahma (b. 13 August 1969), Princess Sumaya (b. 14 May 1971), Princess Badiya (b. 28 March 1974), and Prince Rashid (b. 20 May 1979)."

Another question would be: does she perceived herself as part of the Jordanian culture..If you noticed, she is almost always in her SARI, the pakistani/hindi style of outfits? i am not saying she should forget about her own culture...but maybe she could also integrate some of her husband&#39;s

hmm...that&#39;s right humble...

i&#39;ve only seen one picture of her in a traditional thobe (on prince hassan&#39;s website)...

it must be difficult for her to merge both cultures...

she does not have to wear the the jordanian thob. We in jordan like her style and prefer that she keeps wearing Sari, and would not be happy if she changed it. she respects her culture and we respect her for that.

i dont know about the values of other cultures related to that, but in Jordan one of our values is being faithful to our culture and being proud of it, .. to who we are, our families, and to every thing we originally belong to as well; so Jordanian woman for example does not change her name after marriage , and socially she still considered as a part of here original family not her husband&#39;s family , and the man is also still belonging to his original family, not meaning that she or he is separate from one another family, which is also considered as a second family, so P.Sarvath is considerd Pakistanian as well as Jordanian too.

P.Sarvath wearing of Sari meets with our cultural values and represents another value and feature of Jordan which is Diversity, and we always work to keep this Diversity forming the face of Jordan.

And for P. Hassan I think he carries the same values, and may be he encouraged her to wear her traditional dress.

Petra spelled her name wrong..they make mistakes with spelling/grammer all the time. Also, Sarvath might be pronounced differently in Arabic, in Urdu (Pakistan&#39;s national language) it would be pronounced exactly as it is spelled.

They are one and the same person &#33; Sarvath or Servet or Sarwat are the Urdu/Turkish/Farsi way of pronouncing Tharwa in Arabic. The same letter that is pronounced &#39;s&#39; in the first three languages is &#39;th&#39; in Arabic. And the last &#39;t&#39; or &#39;th&#39; is not pronounced at all in Arabic, in any way. Complicated. That is probably why some people think P. Hassan has been married twice, but actually it is only once, to the same lady, for almost thirty six years. It is one of the pecularities I have noticed about the Jordanian Arabic press when writing in English, is that they persist in using their own pronunciations and spellings of various names, even if the owner of the name uses a different pronunciation or spelling his or herself. This can also been seen in Jordan in street names when it is quite difficult sometimes to recognise whom a street is named for. Other countries are sometimes also guilty of this failing. The &#39;Times&#39; newspaper of London always referred to the late king as Husayn even though he always spelt his name Hussein in English.

Has this recent article on Hassan's (inappropriate, imo) comments about the mental faculties of the American President been posted on the group yet? If so, I apologize for re-posting it. Although amussing, I don't think it was wise of him to make this kind of commentary, especially since the the US is his nephew's (and his late brother's) benefactor. I have my theory as to why he made the comments now. I'm just interested in hearing what others think. Here's the article:



"Jordanian prince requests Bush brain viewing

Reuters
South Africa, October 4

A prominent member of Jordan's ruling royal family has used a trip to
France to take issue with the official US attitude to his country and
to question US President George W Bush's mental capacities.

"We need respect, intellectual tolerance, Mr President of the United
States, of a meeting of minds...and if you actually have one, I'd
like to see it," Prince Hassan bin Talal said.

The prince, an uncle to Jordan's King Abdullah II and an active
member of intercultural committees, spoke at an international
geography festival in eastern France.

He was invited to speak to the event along with a former Israeli
ambassador, Elie Barnavi.

Prince Hassan accuses the Bush administration of "wanting to treat us
like they own us".

Jordan is seen in the US as a key ally in promoting the US vision for
Israel and for Iraq.

Mr Bush is fighting for re-election on November 2 largely on the way
he carried out the US invasion and occupation of Iraq. "

yes he recieved teams that made good results in the Pan-Arab Games in Algeria, the self defense sports that he heads, ,karate ,tae Kwon Do , boxing that prince rashid heads, and the (resheh, I do not know what in english) that p sarvath heads. he made a reception for them in his house.
I read that in the newspaper that morning that he will , but unfortunately I did not see the program on TV, I think that there was an interview with him in that program.

I found a picture in the newspaper.
