When shall we have such persons?

In this materialistic world

here is a great example of

true humility………. actually practiced not just preached……..

The Life of Iranian President Ahmedinejad

The FoxNewsTV (USA)

asked the Iranian President Ahmedinejad,

'When you look into the mirror in the morning

what do you say to yourself'?

He answered: I see the person in the mirror and tell him 'Remember' you are no

more than a small servant, ahead of you today is the heavy responsibility,

and that is to serve the Iranian nation'.

Ahmedinejad, the Iranian President who astonished many when he first reached

to the office of the Presidency by donating all the high valued Iranian carpets

to one of the mosques in Tehran by replacing them with the low cost ordinary

carpets. He observed that there was a huge extravagant lounge for receiving

and welcoming the VIPs and

he ordered it to be closed and asked the protocol office to arrange for an

ordinary room only with wooden chairs.

On many instances he joins the cleaning staff of the municipality for cleaning

the streets in the area where his home and the Presidency are located.

Under his authority whenever he appoints any minister to his post he gets a

signed document from him with many points particularly highlighting that

he shall remain poor and that his personal and his relatives accounts will

be watched and the day he leaves the ministry shall be with dignity, and

therefore it is not lawful for him or his relatives to take any advantage of

his office. First of all he declared himself for all the

'Big' wealth and the property he owned was a Peugeot 504 car, model 1977,

an old small house inherited from his father 40-years ago in one of the

poorest zones in Tehran . His accounts with a zero balance and the only

money comes in to his a/c was from his salary from the university as a

lecturer with an amount of US$ 250 only.

For your information the President still lives in that same house. This is all

what he owns; the president of one of the world's important countries;

strategically, economically, politically and with regard to its oil and defense.

He even doesn't take his personal salary with the argument that all the

wealth belongs to the nation and he is the safeguard over it.

One of the things that impressed the staff at the presidency is the bag the

President brings with him every day, which contains his breakfast; some

sandwiches or bread with olive oil and cheese prepared by his wife and eats

and enjoys it with all happiness.

One of the other things he changed was his personal carrier 'the President's

Aircraft' to a cargo aircraft in order to save the spending from the public

treasury and he ordered that he will be flying with the ordinary airline in the

economy class.. He organizes meetings every now and then with all the

ministers to know their activities and efficiency and he closed down the

office of the Manager of the president and any minister can enter to his

office without any permission. He also stopped the welcome ceremonies

like the red carpet, the photo session or any personal advertisement or

respect of any kind while visiting any place in the country.

Whenever he has to stay in any of the hotels he asks them to make sure

not to give him a room with any big bed because he doesn't like to sleep

on beds but rather likes to sleep on the floor on a simple mattress with

a blanket.

Refer to some of the photographs which also confirm the above. The

Iranian president is sleeping in the guest room of his house after

getting away from his special guards who follow him wherever he goes

and photo is taken by his small brother according to the Wifaq

Newspaper which published this photo and the next day the photo

was published in most of the world's newspapers and magazines and

particularly the Americans. During the prayer you can see that he is

not sitting in the first row. And the final photo is of his dining room

where the president is busy eating his simple meal.

Try comparing this

with the emoluments

and privileges our ministers get .... plus

the amount they loot

How many of our Presidents, PMs, Ministers &

politicians enjoy(?)

such a life!!!

The views of Patriotic Australian Prime Minister

India Needs A Leader Like This !

Prime Minister John Howard - Australia

Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were
told on Wednesday to get out of Australia , as the
government targeted radicals
in a bid to head off potential terror attacks.

Separately, Howard angered some Australian Muslims
on Wednesday by saying he supported spy agencies
monitoring the nation's mosques.
It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying
about whether we are offending some
individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks
on Bali , wehave experienced a surge in patriotism by
the majority of Australians.'

'This culture has been developed over two centuries of
struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and
women who have sought

'We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic,
Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language.
Therefore, if you wish to
become part of our society . Learn the language!'

'Most Australians believe in God. This is not some
Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact,
because Christian men and women, on
Christian principles, founded this nation, and this
is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to
display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends
you, then I suggest you consider another
part of the world as your new home, because God is
part of our culture.'

'We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why.
All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony
and peaceful enjoyment with us.'

and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this.
But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping
about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or
Our Way of Life, I highly encourage
you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom,

'If you aren't happy here then LEAVE. We didn't force you
to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country
YOU accepted.'

Maybe if we circulate this amongst ourselves, Indian
citizens will find the backbone to start speaking and
voicing the same truths.

Let us also appreciate this

The new Home Minister of India,
does not fly in the private plane,
but goes in
commercial flights, unlike his
predecessor Mr. Shivraj Patil, who
was always flying in the private
plane. He also does not
take any officers along with him,
whereas his predecessor was taking
quite a good number of
Babus with him.
