Gabdulla Amantay (Bashkir: Ғабдулла Амантай, born as Gabdulla Sahipgareevich Amantayev, 23 July 1907 – 10 October 1938), was a Bashkir poet, writer and playwright.

In 1937, he was arrested for his views on the protection of the people. He was rehabilitated posthumously, only in the 1990s.


His scientific works are devoted to the principles of the definition of national literature, problems in the study of Bashkir folklore and literary language.[1]
