Uzbek Pilgrims Join Ottoman army

Year 1915.
When a group of Uzbeks who traveled to the Holy Land to fulfill the Hajj heard the announcement of Ottoman Halifa “Jihad”, they climbed off the trains and joined the Ottoman forces. All the Uzbek Turks became “Martyrs” on the front-line.


These six pathans were recruited to protect the Afghan Mission, which was a collective of Indian, German and Ottoman military and diplomatic personnel sent to Kabul to try to convince Emir Habibullah of Afghanistan to join the Central Powers and rise up in a Jihad against the British in India.

    I have always had immense respect for The Ottomans. Our school curriculums hardly covered the ottoman empire and my first experience and understanding of the Ottomans was when I first visited Istanbul. Was simply awestruck and literally in tears when I studied their history and their service to the cause of Islam.
    However, another school of thought is very critical of them. The period of Ataturk, the revolt of Arabs against the Turks in Haramain, and the whole Arab urprising. These are areas I still need to study. I have also seen the remnants of the Hijaz railway in Madina. Such great history which is totally hidden from public view!

    Hope to learn more through your website. I hope this site serves as a comprehensive database for knowledge about the Othmanis, their role in geo politics then and now, and also hope this site provides a very balanced information about who and what they truly were/are!

    Their firm stance on protecting Al Quds according to me is enough reason for us to have immense respect for them as leaders of the Ummah.
