Uncovering the Secrets of Turkish Historical Dramas: What Makes Them So Addictive?
These days, Turkish historical drama series have gained immense popularity among many Muslim countries such as Pakistan, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, and others. There are several reasons why these series are famous among people. Firstly, the portrayal of old traditions and lifestyle, and the depiction of historical events through visuals, attract people towards these series. Additionally, these dramas do not contain vulgarity, unlike Hollywood and Bollywood films, which makes them suitable for family viewing. In my opinion, these series are designed in a way that the new generation can learn a lot of things, such as family values, respect for elders, empathy towards children, and love for teachers.
Although there may be other reasons for their popularity, I believe that the educational value of these dramas is a significant factor. However, while it is nice to see people interested in these series, it is also essential for them to study history from books to gain further insight and knowledge. Studying history beforehand can help people understand the historical facts and characters already, making the viewing experience more enjoyable.
Therefore, I recommend reading the book “Sultanat Usmaniya” by Dr. Muhammed Aziz, which covers the history of the Ottoman Empire from the life of Suleiman (father of Ertuğrul Ghazi) until 1918. The book is written in Urdu, so those who have a grip on the language can read it. In addition, the book also discusses the Turkish lifestyle, everyday life, education, food, and lifestyle during that era. I hope you will enjoy reading this book and gain a deeper understanding of Turkish history.
