Uthman Mukhtari

Uthman Mukhtari was an 11th-century and 12th-century poet of Ghaznavids, an empire originating from Ghazna located in Afghanistan.

Originating from Ghazna, he is thought to have written the Shahryar-nama, which describes the struggles of Muslims against Indian heathens during the Ghaznavid era.

He was a great fan of Masud Sa'd Salman.

The epic was composed in 3 years. Parts of it remain in the British Museum.

He died in 1149 CE.
