This huge amount of popularity was gained due to several reasons. Especially in Pakistan, it was a huge hit, and Pakistanis got smitten by the show more than anything.  

Reasons Why Pakistanis Are Being Obsessed With Ertugral:

Let’s look at the reasons one by one.

Depicts Rare Islamic History: 

Ertugral series is one of those rare movies which is revolving around the forgotten parts of Islamic history. It connects us to our glorious past and gallant ancestors whose characters were astounding. Since Pakistanis are quite sensitive about Islam and anything which has the element of Islamic values incorporated in it goes straight into the hearts of all Pakistanis, this series has also been a major hit.

The Criticism on Ertugral:

It has also received criticism and hate from the liberal community of Pakistan for obvious reasons. Anything having Islamic touch becomes a bitter pill for them to swallow and the same has happened with the Ertugral series. They have criticized it for showing violence and brutal scenes of killings. Some complained about the fact that the Turkish industry is taking our Pakistani industry and it is not so patriotic. Some would comment that it is connecting us to the past yet unable to prepare us for the future which makes it not-so-watchable.

But none of the above statements have proven to be true or bothered any of the fans. This has even started heated debates on social media and people aren’t shutting up since then. 

The Emotional Factor in Ertugral Series:

Pakistanis are an emotional nation. Maybe, a bit too emotional. They are inclined towards things that would emotionally stimulate them and get attached to it rather quickly. Ertugrul has massive amounts of emotions mixed with drama, suspense, and curiosity making the perfect recipe for a successful series. It shows all ranges of emotions from romance to brotherhood, family bonding, and siblings’ love to friendship and tribe bonds. It also expresses emotions of extreme hate, love, bravery, patriotism, envy, and jealousy.

We laugh and we cry while watching the series. It feels like being on a roller-coaster of emotions making us experience different ranges.

Pakistan’s Relation with Turkey: 

Pakistan always had a strong brotherhood with Turkey in terms of ideology and goodwill exchange. Turkey has a special place in the hearts of all Muslims because the last Ottoman Empire was in Turkey. 

The tale of Osman and how he established the Empire begins with the tale of his father Ertugrul. And that is the story narrated in the series Resurrection Ertugrul.
