Adnan Siddiqui visits Ertugrul Ghazi’s tomb in Turkey

By Matthias Samuel

Adnan Siddiqui is a Pakistani actor, producer, and model who has worked in Lollywood and Hollywood and also made his debut in Bollywood with the Hindi film Mom. He also has his own production house, Cereal Entertainment.

Recently, Adnan Siddiqui went to Turkey for a recent shoot and decided to discover the place during his stay. He visited the famous tomb of the warrior Ertugrul Ghazi who has been pretty famous in Pakistan for the past couple of months.

On his Instagram account, the actor shared a video of the monument and wrote, “One must be marooned on an island to not know about Ertugrul Ghazi now that he’s moved out of boring history books to the legendary Turkish series Ertugrul.”

He further added that, “So much is the frenzied fan following in Pakistan that the period drama captures most of the conversations these days. So here I was, at the tomb of the great Ertugrul in Söğüt who can be loosely attributed as the founder of the Ottoman Empire going by historical events.”, “Ertuğrul, the chieftain of Kayi tribe, the man who championed the cause of Islam, wished for a prosperous and safe state for Muslims and non-Muslims alike and whose regime was based on the tenets of justice and fair play.”

One must be marooned on an island to not know about Ertuğrul Ghazi now that he’s moved out of boring history books to the legendary Turkish series Ertuğrul. So much is the frenzied fan following in Pakistan that the period drama captures most of the conversations these days. So here I was, at the tomb of the great Ertuğrul in Söğüt who can be loosely attributed as the founder of Ottoman Empire going by historical events. Ertuğrul, the chieftain of Kayi tribe, the man who championed the cause of Islam, wished for a prosperous and safe state for Muslims and non-Muslims alike and whose regime was based on the tenets of justice and fair play. Multiple thoughts crisscrossed my mind as I took in the beauty and the simplicity of the mausoleum. I had expected a grand monument to celebrate the great Ertuğrul, man of commanding authority, and a greater legacy. And here was a tomb that spoke volumes of the chief’s life but didn’t need to rely on grandiosity. Humbled. . . . . #ertugrulgazi #history #legacy #Turkeydiaries @drkashifhansari

Right now, I’m with Qadir Sahab, and he is the man who created Ertuğrul; his company created it.”
