Ertugrul inspiration in Pakistan: statue of warrior appears in Lahore

The community members of an area in Lahore have paid tribute to the warrior hero of Turkish television series, Dirilis: Ertugrul , by erecting a statue of Ertugrul in their neighbourhood. The warrior in the statue in the Maraghzar Housing Scheme situated along the Multan Road is seen carrying a sword and riding a horse.

Muhammad Shahzad Cheema, the president of the Maraghzar Housing Scheme, says he decided to erect the statues of Ertugrul after some of the residents floated the idea of paying a tribute to him. Giving details of the project, he says these special statues have been made using fibre and metal in the city of Kamalia of Toba Tek Singh district.

At present, there are two statues that depict Ertugrul on a horse. One of them has been unveiled while the other is going to be erected soon possibly at a central place.
