The first-ever Arabic book written on the Kashmir crisis by a Middle-eastern author was launched in Cairo city of Egypt on Wednesday during a special event organized by the Pakistan Embassy.
Written by Omar Mohammad Nazzal Al Armouti, a Jordanian, Kashmir Crisis: Unresolved Issue of Muslim Ummah introduces the plight of Kashmiris to Egyptians as well as other Arab communities living in the historical city, said a report by Geo News quoting a press release by a Pakistan embassy.
The book delves into graphic details of the sufferings endured by residents of the Jammu and Kashmir and explains the logic behind Pakistan’s principled support to the struggle of Kashmiris.
Addressing the gathering, Al Armouti, who earlier traveled 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, the report by Geo News said.
Drawing a comparison between the struggles of Palestinians and the people in the Jammu and 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.
Shah underlined the need for respect of fundamental rights of the people living in J&K. He added that no foreign “occupation” has ever sustained forever in the history of mankind, reported Geo News.
