The dubbed version in Urdu came as soon as the season first of the TV show Ertugrul Ghazi started in 2014 in Turkey. In South Asian countries, the show broke all dimensions of popularity. It became the most popular serial ever in Pakistan. India is no longer untouched by this.
The show is being watched online in large numbers in India. People have finished watching the season first in lockdown. Now the second season is awaited. However, many people who cannot wait have started looking in Hindi-Urdu and English sub titles.
Recently, Zakir Naik termed the show as harmless due to the women being exposed and showing love story with music. But a large number of people from the Muslim community are watching it online. In many Muslim families, watching the show together in the evening has become a custom.
Zakir Naik released the video and said that it is forbidden to watch the show. He appealed to Muslims not to watch the show. It was argued that Muslims are not allowed to watch the music on the show and women without hijab. Now not only Muslims, non-Muslims are also not only watching this show. Rather like it too.
