Ghaznavids were elite slave soldiers only to become the rulers of the region.

Their empire spanned from Central Asia to India.

So did they lose their Turkic culture for the Persian culture?

Elites became persianised in a way but no they did not lose their Turkic culture they held onto it.

Elites were more into persian culture while the average Turk continued his life as a soldier in the Ghazmavid military most soldiers spoke Turkic while the rulers spoke Persian. Then again the Ghaznavid army was multi ethnic so I wonder how they communicated their multi ethnic army.

They get triggered even more when you mention the Arab conquests 🤣🤣🤣

And flatout start fuming when you point out that the Safavids were a Turkic empire and dynasty.

Nader Shah too he was a Afshar which is a Oghuz Turkic clan.

Isnt it ironic that the Ottomans worst defeats actually came from their own Turkic cousins like Timur and Nader Shah.
