Khushal Khan Khattak was born in 1613. He is also known as Khushal Baba. He was an Afghan or Pashtun warrior-poet, chief, and freedom fighter from the Khattak tribe of the Pashtuns. Khushal was the first Afghan mentor who presents his theories for the unity of the Pashtun tribes against foreign forces. Khushal wrote many works in Pashto but also a few in Persian.
