Undue weight[edit]

The section on his work placed unnecessarily strong emphasis on the conflict between Muslims and Buddhists, and should really be trimmed, and it also needs to say something about his other works. Hzh (talk) 16:04, 13 July 2019 (UTC)

Beshogur, before restoring this content again please add some sources that prove authorship of this poem, I have not found any research that supports Hansen's unexplained opinion. Clara Wiley (talk) 23:25, 10 August 2020 (UTC)

I've read this book, you probably have no idea what you're talking about. Just use google books and you find tons of sources. here. If you ask the original text, that is not how wiki workds. So asking to restore. Beshogur (talk) 08:22, 11 August 2020 (UTC)
From [1]:

"summarized in a Turkic folk song ... recorded in Al-Kashgari's 12th century dictionary"

The difference between compiling oral and folk traditions and being the author of something is basic stuff that I studied in my first year of high school history, so you can keep the insulting comments too.
