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 fish nets, plastic bags and matches, while also teaming up with private-equity powerhouses like the Blackstone Group on a huge $750 million hydroelectric system in Uganda.

A think-tank founded by the Aga Khan with $30 million from taxpayers has finally moved into a prime heritage building in Ottawa 10 years after the federal government gave it a 99-year lease.

The Global Centre for Pluralism (GCP) pays the federal government $1 a year to use the building at 330 Sussex Dr., formerly the Canadian War Museum. The agreement also allows the GCP to lease out office space in the building at commercial rates.

And it already has a tenant: the Royal Canadian Mint, a Crown corporation.

The Aga Khan is to donate €40m (£27.4m) of his fortune to help restore France's largest privately owned estate, which includes a park, a Renaissance chateau, a racecourse and the biggest classical art collection in the country outside the Louvre.
The billionaire businessman and racehorse owner, who is a British citizen, will provide more than half of a €70m fund set up with the French state, the Institut de France - which owns the magnificent but badly decayed Chantilly estate - and local authorities.

The Aga Khan enjoys a solid reputation in the world of international development. If Trudeau acted improperly, observers say that’s on him, not the Aga Khan.

Two weeks ago, during an overseas trip, former prime minister Stephen Harper tweeted to his 1.11 million followers. “Just visited the magnificent #Ismaili Centre Dubai,” he wrote. “Reminds me of what a tremendous force for global peace and pluralism the Aga Khan is.”

Can you imagine the enormity of the scandal if Black Caviar was stolen and was still missing 34 years later?

A tale like that began on a foggy Irish winter’s evening on Tuesday, February 8, 1983.

Shergar, one the world’s most brilliant, adored and valuable racehorses, was soon to begin his second season as a stallion when a gang of gun-wielding kidnappers broke into Ballymany Stud and forced head groom James Fitzgerald to load the horse into a float.

THE initial breeding venture between John Messara's Arrowfield Stud and the Aga Khan Studs, whereby the Aga Khan maintains a group of Australian-based mares at Arrowfield, comprised just six mares back in 2008. But like plenty of the decisions that the Aga Khan has taken over the years to enhance his bloodstock, the results have been far reaching and now, a little under a decade later, this is one with international consequence.
