Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Senator Mushtaq Ahmad Khan has criticized the government for its scanty financial help provided to needy people, saying that Rs3,000 are not enough for a family to buy basic supplies for a month.

Senator Mushtaq said that during these crucial times the government was obliged to help the lower-income people at its best. But, unfortunately our leaders can’t work on the right thing on the right time, he said.

He also suggested that the government does away with interest rate so that people would borrow loans from banks.

“You cannot build the State of Madina by broadcasting the drama series Ertugrul,” he said.

Ertugrul is a Turkish serial based on stories of the Muslim Oghuz Turks, fighting invading Mongols, Christian Byzantines and the fanatic Knights Templar Crusaders in Anatolia.

A dubbed version of the drama is currently being aired on Pakistan Television (PTV) on Prime Minister’s request.

Diriliş Ertuğrul translated as Resurrection: Ertugrul, originally aired on TRT TV in 2014 and it concluded with its 5th season in 2019.

According to reports, PTV obtained the broadcast rights of the drama from the Turkish Radio and Television Corporation (TRT).

The series is based on the life of 13th century Oghuz warrior Ertugrul, pronounced as “air-TU-rule”, the father of Osman Ghazi 1, the founder of the Ottoman Empire.

Moreover, the producers of Diriliş: Ertugrul are impressed with the sweeping response after the Urdu dubbed version of the drama is gaining huge popularity currently aired on PTV.

The director of TRT Riyaad Minty spoke to a media outlet about the huge success of the series in the South Asian nations.

“Ertuğrul has gone viral in Pakistan and its episodes are trending on YouTube in Pakistan every day,” Riyaad Minty, added that there are more than 30 million views and over 600,000 subscribers on Youtube channel.

“However, with growing popularity, these numbers are expected to climb up in the coming days,” he said.
