Esra Bilgic aka Halime Sultan, who has become a household name in Pakistan, once again received backlash from her Pakistani fans for wearing what they called an ‘un-Islamic’ outfit.

One user said, “Now you are deliberately doing this.. we people give so much respect to you & Halime Sultan .. everyone in Pakistan feels good about Ertugrul.. but now you crossing line with such un-Islamic types of clothing. You look beautiful as Halime.. Masha Allah.. good Islamic dressing is the prettiest in a Woman.. so why you posting such bad dresses. Delete such posts @esbilgic .. it spoils mind of other Muslim women. [sic]”

Some fans also came in support of Halime Sultan.

One of her followers wrote, “You look beautiful and you should wear whatever, whenever you want! Ignore the haters. love from Pakistan.”

Another wrote, “1st of all she is Esra Bilgic not Halima sultan she only just play the character of [Halima Sultan] [sic].”
