Ancient Quran belongs to 900 years ago found in Pakistan

 Archeologists have discovered a manuscript of the holy Qur'an in the Pakistani city of Jhelum, which they believe dates back to 900 years ago.

According to The Siasat Daily Ghulam Akbar Malik found the 12th-century-manuscript during excavations in northeastern Pakistan.

Jhelum has yielded many archeological and historical finds, but Malik came upon the holy manuscript somewhat by chance.

"An old man gave this to me as a gift at a shelter in the hills," Malik said.

The manuscript is written on Papyrus and experts believe it was written by three calligraphers who produced the copy of the Qur'an in just over a year.

The manuscript weighs about five kilograms and consists of 1,200 pages. The handwritten text has faded in some parts due to the passage of time.

"It is the first time that I have seen such an ancient Qur'anic manuscript in such good condition," Malik said.
