Dear Mr. Tarzi,

congratulation for the fantastic work on this site. I wished to see some poems of this great poet . If it is possible please add some of his poets to read. I am related to this great man from my mother side and sometimes I write some poem and I believe I inherated this talent from his great father and him.

Well done and please add more updated information.

With best regards,

Dear Omer Tarzi,
All my sympathy to you and all your family this day for the commemoration of your grandfather.

Dear Mr Tarzi sahib ,
Thank you very much for inviting me to attend the great Tarzi memorial. I wish I could but I am so sorry that I will not be able to do so.
I have always been and am an admirer of Late Mahmud Tarzi. He was the one who taught Afghans the alphabet of modern life 85 years before.
He was a great objective writer , visionary politician , kind teacher , great journalist and above all a greater human being.
We will never forget him and indeed I appreciate your work on him. You are a thoughtful grandson of a thoughtful grandfather.
Do keep his memory alive , his torch high and his ideas in action.

Message : It was my first year in college that I came across Tarzi's writings. His poetic, patriotic and visionary writings exemplify Afghan’s love for freedom and independence.
Tarzi's Saraj -ul-Akhbar and political writings was not only a revolutionary response to the British Imperialism in Afghanistan but to all neighboring countries that followed this great man's guidance to gain their independence.
I want to thank you for giving the world the opportunity to learn about this great Afghan.

Message : I’m a big follower of Mr Mahmud Tarzi, when it comes on his patriotism and poetry; since I’m a poet, journalist and a patriot therefore I want to pass my warm regards to his respected family and as well to the developer of this site. I have a request at the end, if it is possible so please add some more information about this great guy.

Dear Mr. Tarzai, Salam!

 Thank you for the information about the personnel and structure of MTCF. I would like to congratulate you for having undertaken steps to promote academic and cultural activity in Afghanistan under the name of your illustrious grandfather who, in my estimation, was the most influential force for modernization and Westernization in Afghanistan during the past century.

I assume MTCF is about to become an officially recognized NGO which, in additio to facilitating national and international statuses, will enable the foundation to seek and compete for material resources. And the degree of success in this search and competition will determing the nature and scope of the foundation's programs and activities. Given the structure that you outlined, I would be interested in membership in the Board of Trustees. Being an anthropologist with extensive academic and scholarly experience and interest in Afghansiatn, I could contribute to the formulation of the foundation's policies and programs dealing with academic and scholarly research and academically gauged cultural agenda. I envisage MTCF as an umbrella for facilitating academic research and publications (including a scholarly journal in the social sciences and humanities) in and about Afghanistan. In fact, I would encourage the planning and establishment of  a private university in Afghanistan in the name of Mahmud Tarzi. This will be a fitting memorial to him and a great service to Afghanistan. Best wishes.

Great news. Congratulations to every one and specially

Sardar Omar jan Tarzi,

At last MTCF has reached its target and I am very happy for that. In a short way I can describe Omar jan as follows: He is a true inheritor of grand Tarzi, he has openned Tarzi’s pen and cultural legacy to the rest of the inheritors. Because of this; I congratulate his post as president of MTCF from my heart with all my sincere wishes and I would like to confirm that I will support all kinds of new attempts he will take.
