Cairo, June 28 (KMS): The first-ever Arabic book written on the Kashmir crisis by a Middle Eastern author was launched in Cairo during a special event organised by the Pakistan Embassy in Egypt’s capital city.

The book written by Omar Mohammad Nazzal Al Armouti, a Jordanian, Kashmir Crisis: Unresolved Issue of Muslim Ummah introduces the plight of Kashmiris to the Egyptians as well as other Arab communities living in the historical city, a press release issued by the embassy said.

The book delves into graphic details of the sufferings endured by residents of the IoK and explains the logic behind Pakistan’s principled support to the struggle of Kashmiris.

Addressing the gathering, Al Armouti, who earlier travelled to Pakistan and met Kashmiri people along both sides of the Line of Control (LoC), maintained that his book would go a long way in sensitizing public opinion on the issue, especially in the Arab world.

Drawing a comparison between the struggles of Palestinians and the people in the Indian-occupied Kashmir, Pakistan’s Ambassador to Cairo Mushtaq Ali Shah, who chaired the panel discussion, appreciated Al Armouti’s efforts and called upon the international community to help the subjugated people regain their right of self-determination.

Other panelists included Dr Mohammad Al Saeed Gamal Uddin, a professor at the Ain Shams University, Al-Ahram Deputy Editor Tarek Sheikh, Dr HamdUllah of the World Association for al-Azhar Graduates (WAAG), as well as Dr Hassan Khalil, a representative of Grand Sheikh (Imam) of al-Azhar Ahmed el-Tayeb.
