Adnan Siddiqui is in Turkey these days. He wrote on Instagram that there are a large number of fans of Ertugrul Ghazi in Pakistan.

One must be marooned on an island to not know about Ertuğrul Ghazi now that he’s moved out of boring history books to the legendary Turkish series Ertuğrul. So much is the frenzied fan following in Pakistan that the period drama captures most of the conversations these days. So here I was, at the tomb of the great Ertuğrul in Söğüt who can be loosely attributed as the founder of Ottoman Empire going by historical events. Ertuğrul, the chieftain of Kayi tribe, the man who championed the cause of Islam, wished for a prosperous and safe state for Muslims and non-Muslims alike and whose regime was based on the tenets of justice and fair play. Multiple thoughts crisscrossed my mind as I took in the beauty and the simplicity of the mausoleum. I had expected a grand monument to celebrate the great Ertuğrul, man of commanding authority, and a greater legacy. And here was a tomb that spoke volumes of the chief’s life but didn’t need to rely on grandiosity. Humbled. . . . . #ertugrulgazi #history #legacy #Turkeydiaries @drkashifhansari
Adnan Siddiqui further wrote that I was surprised to see the tomb of Ertugrul Ghazi because I thought that his tomb would be in a very big place but not at all, his tomb is built in a simple and small place which is a statement of Ertugrul’s greatness and simplicity. The actor, who is in Istanbul, Turkey, told fans that he would soon hear good news. The drama “Ertugrul Ghazi” is very popular in Pakistan which is being aired in Pakistan on the first day of Ramadan with Urdu dubbing on the instructions of Prime Minister Imran Khan. The play depicts a series of Islamic conquests before the establishment of the Ottoman Empire in the 13th century.
