Why Imran khan is recommending it?
The reason lies in the meeting of Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran khan with President of Turkey Tayyip Erdogan and Prime Minister of Malaysia Mahathir Mohammad at United Nations General Assembly (UNGA). The real purpose is that English channels or media is portraying anti-Islamic things and creating Islamophobia among viewers unaware of the truth. This has developed the misconceptions about Islam and Muslims. Islam is being misunderstood by many people even Muslims because of the misinterpretation through media.
The broadcast of Ertugrul Ghazi is a way to eliminate few sparks of anti-Islamic views. It is a baby step by Muslim countries to portray the right image of Islam and Muslims globally.
