Uzbekistan has donated 100 copies of a book written by its president to Qatar University (QU).

The copies of the book “High Morality, Invincible Strength” by Islam Karimov were presented to Aisha Al Mannai, QU Dean of College of Shariah and Islamic Studies (CSIS) by Abdurafik Khoshimov, the ambassador of Uzbekistan to Qatar, in the presence of CSIS faculty members, students, and staff .

“We are delighted to receive this publication from President Karimov,” Al Mannai said. “We enjoy a strong relationship with the country and its people and look forward to further cooperation,” she said, quoted by Qatari daily The Peninsula.

Al Mannai praised President Karimov’s celebration of moral and cultural values of Arab and Muslim societies.

Khoshimov said that the book contains information on a wide-range of topics, the history of Uzbekistan and its current status, the importance of education, and the issue of morality in societies today.

“It discusses globalisation and the crisis of culture that we are witnessing in some European countries,” the ambassador said. “This requires us to stand firm in the face of such challenges, to defend and preserve our religious, cultural and moral values for the benefit of our younger generation,” he said.

According to Khoshimov, the book is “an in-depth analysis of the essence of moral and spiritual values and of nature as a rich treasure for humanity in all stages of its evolution.”

“This book is not only relevant to the people of Uzbekistan but also to the international community,” he said.
