Tanzimat ReformsThis is a featured page

Tanzimat emerged from the minds of reformist sultans like Mahmud II and Abdülmecid as well as prominent reformers who were European educated bureaucrats, such as Ali Pasha, Fuad Pasha, Ahmed Pasha, and Midhat Pasha. They recognized that the old religious and military institutions no longer met the needs of the empire in the modern world. Most of the symbolic changes, such as uniforms, were aimed at changing the mindset of imperial administrators. Many of the reforms were attempts to adopt successful European practices. Changes included universal Consricption educational, institutional and legal reforms; and systematic attempts at eliminating corruption. The Tanzimat reforms began under Sultan Mhummad II. On November 3rd, 1839, Sultan Abdülmecid issued an organic statue for the general government of the empire named the Hatti-l Serif of Gulhane. It is also called the Tanzimat Fermanı.
