Khuda Zameen Se Gaya Nahin promises to be the most ground-breaking creation in the history of Pakistani television. Nothing like this has ever been attempted in terms of content, depth, style and sheer scale on what is a deeply resonating yet sensitive subject.
Khaista Gul became a self-proclaimed jihadist leader and fueled by his rage against the privileged and infidels, waged war against anyone who opposed his beliefs. Using religion as his basis for dispensing justice, he seized control by exploiting the minds of the impoverished residing in areas of the frontier province. He had a son, Zargul, who was tasked with the responsibility of driving back and forth to conduct business and a daughter, Palwasha who lived in the chaar deewari as a slave.
