The Hidden Secret Of Quetta: 10 Images of Jabal Noor-ul-Quran

Have you ever wondered what happens to old copies of Quran that have been damaged or torn? As Muslims, we know that we cannot burn or tear Quran. So what happens to the old copies of Quran in Pakistan?
Well, they make their way to Jabal-Noor-ul-Quran, which is a hill located in the Mountains of Chiltern in Quetta. The hill has been tunnelled and a series of caves have been created. Why have they been established? Well, they have been created as a place to store old, worn out, damaged and unique copies of Quran.
The scriptures that arrive at Jabal Noor-ul-Quran are placed in bags or cases depending on their condition and stored to ensure they are kept safe and are not further damaged or accidental destroyed.
Take a look at the hidden secret of Quetta with us known as Jabal Noor-ul-Quran:
