When it comes to religion, people are divided into devout followers or nonbelievers.
For those who subscribe to the words of their creator, they follow what has been written on their holy books.
In that case, our Muslim brothers and sisters are not allowed to desecrate the Koran in any means.
KAMI saw (via Daily Mail) that a Pakistani businessman created a sanctuary for old copies of the Muslim holy book.
Samad Lehri has devised tunnels underneath a hill in the Chiltern Mountains in Quetta, Baluchistan, wherein almost 2.5 million Korans are stored.
His foundation, which was named after a mountain mentioned in the Koran, was conceived in 1992.
These tunnels have become a tourist attraction, as some of the Korans donated are on display.
The notable ones are in glass cases – we bet that the 600-year-old copy is in one!
If you want to visit the shrine, there’s no admission fee but donations are encouraged.
Construction is still underway to store more books, which are still in sacks.
What do you think of this effort to keep Korans safe in a tunnel?
