Media stand ground in fight against militancy (Khuda Zameen Sey Gia Nahin)

By Mahtab Bashir

ISLAMABAD: A mega drama serial on the issue of militancy and terrorism titled ‘Khuda Zameen Sey Gia Nahin’ was premiered by Communication Research Strategies (CRS) at a local hotel on Friday.

Government officials, politicians and representatives of armed forces, civil society representatives, academicians and artists attended the event.
Written by Asghar Nadeem Syed, the serial is directed by Kashif Nisar. Rich in feelings of nationalism, sacrifice, valor and fighting spirit, the serial contains sequences that are akin to Hollywood production standards.

These sequences have been shot on challenging locations of Rahimyar Khan, Bahawalpur, Jehlum, Islamabad and NWFP. Instead of using artificial sets, new constructions were made to meet the demands of ‘Khuda Zameen Se Gaya Nahin’.
Another striking aspect of this drama is that artistes from all over Pakistan have performed in it. The cast includes Nauman Ijaz, Ayesha Khan, Ayub Khoso, Syed Jibran, Sara Chaudhry, Tipu, Irum Akhtar, Rasheed Naz, Rashid Mehmood, Asim Bokhari, Azeem Sajjad, Najeeba Faiz and Capt Zeeshan Malik among several others.

Viewers will see these artistes in a novel way depicting real life situations, which have been missing in conventional drama serials. To the surprise of viewers, Nauman Ijaz will be appearing as a Pushtun youth for the first time in his acting career.
The 16-episode drama serial will depict exploitation of youth by militants converting them into suicide bombers. It will also exhibit the agony of destruction of human psyche and relationships in the wake of rampant terrorism in a realistic manner.

The title track of the drama has been sung by prominent singer and nephew of legendary Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. The heart touching lyrics have been written by a young poet Imran Raza.
