Sooner or later, it needed to occur. Given the loopy response Ertuğrul Ghazi has obtained, it was solely a matter of time earlier than actuality struck house for these few die-hard followers, who nicely, purchased into actually all that the present depicted. And it needed to be these unlucky Instagram photos posted by the solid which shattered that phantasm and bore the brunt of the frustration.

Yes, the characters they have been seeing on display have been, in actual fact, being performed by Turkish actors. Oh, and Turkey has at all times allowed its residents (together with the ladies) the liberty to decorate the way in which they need, too.

Does all of this sound too absurd to be true? Well often, actuality finally ends up being stranger than fiction, and this actually appears to be the case right here.

Actor Adnan Malik too chimed in and famous the distinctive interpretation of Islamic tradition and the way it ought to be seen as a welcome transfer.
How may any dialogue on social media be with out Jibran Nasir’s two cents? The socio-political activist felt that every one the Ertugrul craze was the product of an ‘identity crisis.’ While we word that family tree, race, id, and tradition are complicated and sometimes contentious topics that can not be addressed by sweeping generalities, Jibran opined in a tweet that “…(Previously) we mimicked Arabs tracing our roots to Bin Qasim.
