    One thing we should discuss is why there are very few books published in Arabic in the last 40 years. A study by a University in Egypt said that only 800 books (eight hundred!) were published in Arabic in the last 40 years.
    What is the reason? Is it because our minds are closed? I Sure, we are close to 1 billion people speaking the language.

    Something to ponder

    Yes, bro Mirza. Something to explore as to why this decline happened.

    Do you have any info on books published in Farzi during the same time?

    On the Arabic side, is it due to a general economic and educational decline, influence of the fundamentalists, lack of leading universities etc? Is there any study done?
