Pakistan TV to air Turkish drama series in Ramadan

Resurrection: Ertugrul will be broadcast at request of Prime Minister Imran Khan and dubbed in Urdu language

State-run Pakistan Television announced late Sunday that it will air the action-packed Turkish drama series Resurrection: Ertugrul during the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan.

“The acclaimed Turkish television series @DirilisDizisi is being aired on PTV on the instructions of Prime Minister @ImranKhanPTI,” Pakistan Television announced on its official Twitter account.

“Airing will commence from the 1st of Ramazan at 9:10 pm (local time) on PTV Home,” the state-run broadcaster added.

Ramadan is expected to begin in Pakistan on the evening of April 24.

PTV News also shared a 44-second promo of the serial with its announcement.

Senator Faisal Javed Khan, a close aide to Prime Minister Imran Khan and chairman of the Senate Standing Committee on Information, Broadcasting and Heritage, praised the production team of TRT World and said Ertugrul will air with Urdu dubbing.

“Ertugrul Ghazi – Such a great exhibition of culture & Islamic faith – an amazing journey through the phenomenal Turkish history,” tweeted the senator, sharing PTV’s announcement.

“Actors and Characterization r seamless-storyline & plots r intriguing w/ superb mix of soundtracks,” he added

In September last year, Turkey, Pakistan and Malaysia agreed to jointly fight the rising global trend of Islamophobia, mainly in the West. The three countries also decided to launch a TV channel dedicated to confronting the challenges posed by Islamophobia and to produce films on Muslim heroes.

Prime Minister Khan praised the Turkish historical series and ordered that all five seasons be dubbed in Urdu to make it easy for the general public to watch and understand.

Afridi had expressed his love for the series in a tweet in March.

“Watching the Turkish series Diriliş: Ertuğrul I’m just overwhelmed by their achievements and victories that came as a result of their faith in ALLAH and the empire of justice which they were able to establish as a result of. May we be like that once again,” wrote Afiridi on Twitter.
