in fact during the reign of khlaif uthman, 3rd khalif, reports reached him that people in syria, armenia and iraq were reciting a koran manuscript different from the way the arabian muslims have done. he (uthman) immediately sent for manuscrip in Hafsa's possession and ordered Zaid ibn thabit and three others, abdullah ibn zubair, said ibn al as and abdullah al rahman ibn harith b hisham to make copies of the texts and "make corrections where necessary"

he then ordered other manuscripts to be burned. and then later on, even the uthmanic editions met a similar fate. when marwan was governor of medina, he ordred hafsa's manuscript to be destroyed.
