Someone asked me to translate them an extract from their M.phil paper for publication. Please help me make it grammatically correct.

Thanks.

Among the serious problems and challenges the Islamic world is facing at the moment, internal differences and sectarianism are at the forefront. The gulf of scholarship, jurisprudence and professional differences between the various Islamic schools has become so widespread that the dream of unity of the Ummah has come to be considered as a story. If we look at the situation in Pakistan, then the unfortunate confrontation here has increased to such an extent that we, as a united nation, are facing great difficulty to progress. Highlights of the kind of mental turmoil we find in society today, in the face of instances of intolerance, violence, incitement, conflict, and public outcry in our TV talk shows, public places and public gatherings. Under the circumstances, the reconciliation of the Muslim Ummah, to bring the conflict and the differences between the different sections of the Ummah to a minimum level and ensure the internal integrity and stability of the beloved Pakistan is highly required.

Please someone help me with this post.

Thanks.

Here are some suggestions. I realize you are translating, and don't want to stray too far from the original, so some of my suggestions may not work.

Among the serious problems and challenges the Islamic world is facing at the moment, internal differences and sectarianism are at the forefront. The gulf of scholarship, jurisprudence and professional differences between the various Islamic schools has become so widespread that the dream of unity of the Ummah has come to be considered as (just) a story (or fable). If we look at the situation in Pakistan, then the unfortunate (or: we see) confrontation here has increased to such an extent that we, as a united nation, are facing great difficulty (obstacles) to progress. Highlights of the kind of mental (perhaps omit: mental?) turmoil we find in society today, in the face of (suggest replace with: include) instances of intolerance, violence, incitement, conflict, and public outcry in our TV talk shows, public places and public gatherings. Under the circumstances, the reconciliation of the Muslim Ummah, to bring the conflict and the differences between the different sections of the Ummah to a minimum level and ensure the internal integrity and stability of the (our) beloved Pakistan is highly required (essential).
