Follow the Steps below to get a backlink from Wikipedia

Step 1: Search Broken Link
First of all, find the broken links or dead links in Wikipedia with the following advanced Google search query.
Type the following in Google to get information on broken links in Wikipedia.
Site:wikipedia.org “Your Keyword Phrase” “dead link”
Or
Site:wikipedia.org “Your Keyword Phrase” “Citation Needed”
For example take my niche as an example. See below for screenshot.

Step 2:
After opening the above result in a new tab in your browser. Press Cntrl + F in your browser and type “dead link” in the search “Citation needed” if you are using the citation query.

Step 3:
Now, you can see the external links which are dead.

Step 4:
Next, open Wayback Machine Archive in your web browser. Now, copy the broken link from Wikipedia and paste it in the Way back machine archive search.

Step 5:
Click on Browse History in order to see how it used to look earlier. After I clicked on Browse History button, I got the following results

Step 6:
Now in this step, I will look at its earlier copies and see if the webpage can fit in my niche. If the webpage is related to my niche, then I will recreate the same topic or similar topic in my website.

Step 7:
Now head over to Ahrefs or Majestic Seo to find what other websites which linked to this dead link in the example as shown in the above.

Step 8:
In this step, by looking at Wayback Machine archive of the broken link which you got from Wikipedia, try to create the same content in our own writing style uniquely.

You don't write content to get links on Wikipedia - the content you wrote has to be good enough to get a link.

Wikipedia is one of the oldest and authoritative website. It is currently ranked 5th in worldwide according to Alexa.
Every website will have dead external links somehow are other. But for Wikipedia with its sheer amount of articles, it will have countless of dead links for sure.
Wikipedia describes a dead link is a link which is no longer active or which leads to a 404 not found page. A dead link in Wikipedia article or in its citation indicates its moderators that this dead link needs to be fixed or should be replaced with a working link.

Hello dera,
               As Wikipedia provides no follow links, getting backlinks from Wikipedia will take time and requires patience. Let us see what you can do to get backlinks from Wiki.

             Building quality backlinks have been always a give and take relation. Therefore, you will have to give something before you can receive backlinks from sites like Wikipedia.
            First step is to join Wikipedia as an editor.
Next step is to spend time (lots of it) to edit the content in Wikipedia and to help Wiki maintain its content.
Do not edit content just for the sake of editing. The editing that you do must be accurate or else you may be removed as an editor.
Other Wiki editors will be watching you and if they suspect any wrongdoing, they will report you.
Pick articles in Wiki that has the scope for you to add more details to it.
Research studiously for information that you can provide to that page and ensure that the content is well presented.
You can cite reliable sources while providing information to Wiki pages.
Once you have developed a trusted history in Wiki, you can add your links on pages that have content that are relevant to your products or services.
             Ensure that you provide the reason why the link you have provided will be useful.
Keep searching for content that is relevant to your business and sketch out plans on how you can add links to that page.
Add links that are relevant, or it will be deleted by other editors.
            DO NOT spam Wiki with links, as it will hurt you badly. Be organic and add links in a smart manner.

You can create your own wikipedia page for your brand and this will take time to be moderated first before they publish your page in the web.
