Depiction of Social Class, Religion and Education through TV Drama: A Sociological Analysis
Present research paper is based on the sociological analysis of Hum TV dram Ranjha Ranjha Kardi with reference to its effects on social class, religion and education of community. Case study under qualitative research design was followed and data was collected through in-depth interviews of participants and the data obtained has been thematically analyzed for the evaluation of results. This play supports Karl Marx’s class-differentiation theory and depicts that the elite class still forms the norms and values of the society. The drama attempted to show that the cast system has no division in Islam and Islam has given equal rights to all casts. It identified the people who go to shrines and they go to any extent to fulfill their wishes blindly following the actions asked by the clerics there. The play endorses that under the guise of religion illegal work is being validated. Results were showed that the misuse of religion is common and much of the importance has been given to education through this drama and major problem those with lower economic status face in getting education and societal advantages. Results of the study would add more in existing knowledge of social media for the ethical development and moral values of the society.
