Islamabad: The 20th cultural week started on Tuesday at the male campus of International Islamic University Islamabad (IIUI).

Students have set up as many as 15 stalls of regional cultures and books to celebrate the week. Students from different countries and regions of Pakistan are participating in the event.

However, the students of Kenya were in the process of displaying their culture in the corridors, as they were not provided with a room for the purpose. "It is difficult to manage the things as a lot of people are passing by", said a Kenyan student present at the stall.

Chinese students have displayed different pictures of historical buildings depicting architect of their county. The bookstalls also witnessed a great rush, as students were busy selecting books of their interest.

A wide range of books including Islamic history, politics, Urdu, English literatures and history of sub continent were available at these stalls.
