According to Faisal, the Turkish soap is another hit created by Mehmet Bozdag and is about a journey of transformation.
“Yunus Emre was well versed in mystical philosophy, especially that of the 13th-century poet and mystic Jalaluddin Rumi,” he tweeted. “The serial is a great example of a meticulous attention to detail.”
Last month, on Prime Minister Imran Khan’s request, PTV started airing Ertugrul Gazi, a Turkish soap, chronicling the life of the Muslim warrior.
The 179-episode drama series—whose original title is Dirilis: Ertugrul—has been dubbed into Urdu and will air daily with reruns during the day.
According to the prime minister, watching the show will make the youth learn about Islamic history and ethics.
