Khushhal Khan Khattak (1613-1689) was a Pashtun warrior, poet and tribal chief of the Khattak tribe. He wrote in Pashto during the reign of the Mughal (Mongol) emperors in the seventeenth century, and admonished Afghans to forsake their divisive tendencies and unite. He was a renowned fighter who became known as the â¿¿Afghan Warrior Poetâ¿¿. He lived in the foothills of the Hindu Kush mountains in what is now the North-West Frontier Province of western Pakistan. Khattakâ¿¿s life can be divided into two important parts - during his adult life he was mostly engaged in the service of the Mughal King, and during his old age he was preoccupied with the idea of the unification of the Pashtuns. His poetry consists of more than 45,000 poems. According to some historians the number of books written by him is more than 200. His more famous books are Baz Nama, Fazal Nama, Distar Nama and Farrah Nama.
