It may be recalled that (PTI) Senator Faisal Javed Khan has revealed that Prime Minister Imran Khan while expressing his desire said that he wants ‘Yunus Emre’ to be aired in Pakistan as well.
He said that Imran Khan wanted the said drama to be aired in Urdu by any private TV channel.
 It should be noted that Yunus Emre is considered one of the Turkish best Sufi poets and important literary figure of early times.
 It should be noted that the said drama will also be aired on PTV, however, it may take a long time.
 Who is Yunus Emre?
 Yunus Emre (1320-1238) was a famous Turkish Sufi poet who lived in Anatolia in the 13th century AD, much of what is now called Turkey.
 Many authentic information about the life of Yunus Emre is lost in the pages of history but many stories of his life are still an important part of Turkish folk tales which are read, heard and sung with great interest.
