Damaged copies of The Qur'an to be buried at Handsworth Cemetery
A special burial plot is being set aside at a Birmingham cemetery to allow Muslims to respectfully dispose of ripped copies of their holy book - The Qur'an.
Devout Muslims are expected to carefully bury old, worn out and damaged copies on pieces of land where people do not normally walk.
But many mosques and homes in inner-city Birmingham lack the space or grounds to do so.
Now, following a campaign by city councillor Neil Eustace and the Stechford Mosque, the city council has agreed to set aside a patch of ground at Handsworth Cemetery.
