He has become so legendary that the Uzbeks consider that he was born in Uzbekistan, the Kazakhs think that he was born in Kazakhstan, the Turkmens consider that he was born in Turkmenistan, and the Azerbaijanis think that he was born in Azerbaijan. Actually, he was both Azerbaijani, and Uzbek, and Anatolian, and Tatar. It means he is from where Turks live.
There is a meaning in all of his anecdotes. Wherever Molla Nasraddin’s name is pronounced, there is always laughter, smile.
