سردار آزاد خان افغان د ژبي او هنر خاوند وو. په میرنتوب کي پهلوان وو او ادبیاتو کي یي لاس درلود
... آزاد خان سره اته زره سلیمانخیل وو چي د ده تر قیادت لاندی په پورهمیرانه وجنګيدل
قدرت اله حداد....
"Azad Khan Afghan enjoyed a character polished to perfection by valor and
embellished by exceeding chivalry, so that when he had bested the Zand
generals and held at his disposal their baggage and women-folk, he respected
strictly the canons of honor and probity and displayed an uncompromising and
laudable zeal in regard to the fair treatment of his fair captives".
آزادخان افغان چي وروسته د تاریخ ناصري په اسناد آزاد شاه شو، د افغاني تاریخ یوه روښانه څیره ده، چي
د احمد شاه بابا په زمانه کي تیر شوی دی. ده په آزربایجان، ارمنستان او پارس کي تاریخی او سیاسي کار
نامي پریښي چي بیا وروسته پاچایي ته هم رسیدلی دی او همدا دلیل دی چي آزاد خان وروسته آزاد شاه
نومول شوی او لیکل شوی دی م، طاهر کانی
آزاد خان یکی از نامدارترین سرآن تاریخی افغان در دوره ای پس از مرګ نادر افشار میباشد که نه تنها در
خراسان آنروز و یا سر زمین دلیر مردان افغانی از مردان مطرح سیاست آنروز بوده است بلکه در کشور
های ایران، فارس، آزربایجان، ارمنستان، کردستان، ګرجستان، و عراق افتخارات از خود بجا ګزاشته است.
