Why does Imran Khan request His People to watch Turkish Dramas?

In a minute-and-a-half long clip, the Pakistani PM commented, “We’ve always had content from Hollywood and Bollywood which Pakistani TVs showcased them here in our country. A third end culture was being promoted. That’s why I want our youth to know the difference between our values and theirs.”

He went on to add, “We have a culture with romance and history as well. However, it has to fill and fit with Islamic values. Sadly, the content from Bollywood is full of vulgarity. But it wasn’t the reality of the period of three or four decades ago.”

The premiere continued, “Drug culture, sex crimes are on a high. I want a different culture that we must air. So our youth can know that there is a way of life apart from questionable shows that have been airing.” Pakistani PM’s new Turkish drama advice seems to keep affecting cultural dialogues between Turkey and Pakistan.
