The community members in Lahore are going crazy over the Turkish TV series, in light of the character of Ertugrul, that they have paid a tribute to him by raising a sculpture in their neighborhood.

The warrior in the sculpture in the Maraghzar Housing Scheme situated along the Multan Road is seen with a sword riding a horse.
Muhammad Shahzad Cheema, the leader of the Maraghzar Housing Scheme, says he chose to raise the sculptures of Ertugrul after a portion of the inhabitants drifted paying a tribute to him. Giving subtleties of the venture, he says these extraordinary sculptures have been made utilizing fiber and metal in the city of Kamalia of Toba Tek Singh area.
At present, there are two sculptures that delineate Ertugrul on a horse. One of them has been revealed while the other will be raised soon conceivably at a focal spot.
“We will call the spot Ertugrul Ghazi Chowk,” says Sohail Anwar Rana, the secretary general of the plan, alluding to the area where the primary sculpture has been revealed.
Cheema says that while the whole nation was getting a charge out of the TV arrangement and got to know the chronicled figure in the wake of watching the show, he definitely thought about him. “I had found out about him heretofore,” affirms Cheema.
“I won’t notice the expense of these sculptures; in any case, their worth would get the consideration of general society,” Cheema snickers. “I went to Kamalia myself to put in the request for these sculptures.”
“What has influenced me most about this character is the manner in which he joined the whole clan and shaped the Ottoman Empire – this is something that the world’s enemy of Muslim people group can’t process. Our children may have fun, yet they ought to have the option to likewise observe him in aesthetic delineation – something physical they can wonder about”.
