According to the PM Imran Khan our youth can learn much about Islamic history, values and culture from the show instead of watching third party cultures being promoted through Hollywood and Bollywood.

PM Khan showed his disappointment over Bollywood adapting vulgarity from the western world instead of the positive side into their shows and movies when just a few decades ago it wasn’t the case.
This is having a negative impact on our schools, giving a rise to drug culture and leading to sex crimes even involving children according to Prime Minister Imran Khan.
He attributes the vulgarity in shows from Hollywood and Bollywood that are destroying the family culture in our society and according to him, shows like Dirilis Ertugrul are important to watch to get back on the right track.
The title of the show translates to Resurrection: Ertugrul. The show is based on the history of Muslim Oghuz Turks and focuses on the life of Ertugrul, father of Osman I, who was the founder of the Ottoman Empire.
You can catch the show everyday on PTV Home at 9:10pm and the repeat telecast at 12 midnight and 12 noon. The dubbed Urdu episodes will also be available on PTV Home’s YouTube Channel as they air on TV.
