Is a pasulPasul Torah scroll considered muktzaha Muktzeh on Shabbat?

I know that there are different categories of muktzahMuktzeh. One category that is difficult for me to understand is the concept that if something has no use at all on Shabbat (or use for any purpose) it is considered muktzaha Muktzeh. I would think that a pasul Torah scroll, which is something that can't be used on Shabbat, at least, would be considered muktzah, no?

Further questions regarding handling pasul Torah, even if it may be considered muktzah:

  • Can one move it if it is in front of a kosher Torah that one wishes to use, now?
  • If while reading the Torah for the congregation, the reader discovers something that now makes the Torah pasul, can it be moved back to the ark? If not, how may it be handled?
