The “Aqeel Collection” at Kyoto University, one of the largest collections of Urdu books and magazines regarding South Asian studies in the world, was founded by the prominent scholar Dr. Moinuddin Aqeel (Mu‘īn al-Dīn ‘Aqīl). This collection consists of books of various fields such as Urdu literature, history, and social science.
