As per PM Imran Khan’s wishes, popular Turkish drama Diriliş: Ertuğrul, dubbed in Urdu, has been airing on PTV during Ramazan. Last year, a video showing the premiere surfaced on social media in October, in which he discussed how he wants serials and films to be around Islamic history, showcasing heroes such as Khalid bin Waleed.
He went on to add, “We have a culture with romance and history as well, however, it is also filled with Islamic values. Sadly, the content from Bollywood is full of vulgarity, which wasn’t the case three or four decades ago.”
The premiere continued, “Drug culture, sex crimes are on a high. I want a different culture to be aired so our youth can know that there is a way of life apart from questionable shows that have been airing.”
