Previous discussionsEdit

Ansari (nesbat) was copied and redirected to Ansari today. - Fayenatic (talk) 21:57, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

It should not have been. It refers to several things. Ansari should be a disambig page, and the current article should be moved back to nesbat. FunkMonk (talk) 10:05, 28 April 2010 (UTC)

As you've done that, I've merged the following two sections here from Talk:Ansari (nesbat). - Fayenatic (talk) 12:02, 28 April 2010 (UTC)

Pakistan familyEdit

The paragraph about the Pakistan family of lawyers seems inadequately sourced and uses WP:PEACOCK terms. I propose to trim or remove it. Comments? - Fayenatic (talk) 12:53, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

Abu al-QasimEdit

Abu Qasim had Ansari ancestory which may not be part his name, yet the origin can not be ignored. There is hisotirical evidence of his origin. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.17.89.121 (talk) 22:37, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

Sure, but this article is about Ansari (nesbat), not Ansari origin. Where's the evidence that Abu al-Qasim (Abu al-Qasim al-Zahrawi) was called Ansari? Fayenatic (talk) 22:42, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

Legal PracticeEdit

The inclusion of the history of an Ansari family legal business in Pakistan doesn't seem to be of encyclopedic notability to me, and two other editors have agreed - see WP:Notability. But its removal is being reverted by IPs. If the development of the legal practice has led to some Ansari family members becoming notable, then they can be added to the Notable people section, but the rest of the comments seemed to me to be too personal, not notable, and not adhering to WP:NPOV. Any other opinions? Oscroft (talk) 10:20, 26 January 2010 (UTC):

I don't believe those individuals are notable. It looks more like self promotion/advertising from the way it's written. Even if the individuals are notable, they should only be added at the "Notable people" section as Oscroft has mentioned. I'd say just undo/rollback the edit for now, and if the IPs become more problemitic, the page can be protected. Netalarmwelcome to 2010! 03:47, 27 January 2010 (UTC)

Abu Al Qasim and Allama I I KaziEdit

They were both Ansari which is obvious through any reference on their history incluing those on Wikipedia. In those days 'Kazi' was a title rather than a surname (in India) and that applies to Allama I I Kazi. Abu Al-Qasim was Al-zahrawi just because of the geographical area/town he lived/worked in to indicate where he was from which was a norm in those days and so that does not indicate that to be his surname which was Ansari as is quite apparent from his family/ancestral history. Hence, both of them were Ansari by surname/family name beyond any doubt and there is no controversy on that. So, their exclusion from the list is unjustified. - — Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.8.112.10 (talkcontribs) 13:33, 1 May 2010

Someone has created a separate section for these individuals, "Notable people of Ansari descent". I think this is helpful. - Fayenatic (talk) 21:37, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

there were a no of names added to the list which may not meet the criteria as those all seem to belong one particular family and it will be out of order unless they have some proven credentials attached with them. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.21.173.137 (talk) 17:55, 27 March 2011 (UTC)

Return to "Ansari (nesba)" page.
