It is really very amazing that Pakistan’s Prime minister Imran Khan insisting people watch all five seasons of this Turkish Tv Show and also insist on dubbed all these seasons in national language Urdu so that general people can watch and easily understand it.

The reason to launch this dirilis:ertugrul Series in Pakistan is a meeting between three countries Presidents (Imran khan Pakistani President, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan and Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohammad at UNGA. They think to start a english channel to decrease the problems of Islamophobia and the misconception about the ISLAM and Muslims at the worldwide level was proposed by these three leaders.

According to Imran Khan Prime Minister Pakistan by watching the show youth will learn about Islamic history, ethics, and how people struggle for ISLAM.

Besides all other third cultures like Bollywood, Hollywood and others’s I want our children and youth to know about the difference in our culture. It also has romance, history…,” he said. “[The show] has Islamic values.”

As PM said you look at Bollywood today it is vulgar as well as Hollywood. This give bad impact on our children and kids. It also promotes the drug culture, this is why the sex crimes also rise.

Turgut Alp (NOOR GULL)

He was one of the greatest and most renown warriors in Turkish history, a blood-brother to Ertugrul and his best follower and supporter, a very smart and capable man.He lived an unusually long life, even for our time.
