According to a report in Arab News, the drama will soon broadcast on Pakistan Television after being dubbed in Urdu. PTV has gotten rights for dubbing and screening it in Pakistan.

Earlier in September PM Khan has shared that Pakistan, Turkey and Malaysia will jointly launch a TV channel to fight Islamophobia. PM Imran had said that the English language TV Channel will be like BBC which will also highlight the issues faced by the Muslim world.

Particular Assistant to the Prime Minister (SAPM) on Media Affairs Iftikhar Durrani taking to social networking web site Twitter stated that PM Imran Khan has directed Pakistan Tv Company (PTV) to air well-known drama collection ‘Ertugrul’ in Urdu.

Since its premiere on state-run Turkish TV channel TRT 1 in November 2014, the serial has been on aired in 60 countries.

While talking to Arab News special assistant to the Prime Minister on information and broadcasting Dr. Firdous Ashiq Awan said, “We have taken this initiative as the prime minister wants to protect our social, cultural and religious norms,”

“The Muslim world has its own cultural heritage and values, but we are looking into western ones,” she told Arab News in an interview in Islamabad on Monday.

According to Awan, the drama can enlighten and broaden the understanding of the history of Islam, especially among younger generations.

“It is also Prime Minister Imran Khan’s vision to share media content to counter Islamophobia and improve understanding of Islamic values,” Awan said.
