Australian banknotes offend Hindus’ ‘religious sensitivities’

By Around the Web

(News 18, India) A Hindu organization in Australia is urging the Reserve Bank of Australia to print “beef-free” currency notes, as it hurts religious sentiments of Hindus.

The Reserve Bank of Australia is currently printing $20 and $100 “Next Generation” banknotes which are expected to be issued in 2019 and 2020. Newly designed banknotes are being introduced into the country, with the new $5, $10, and $50 notes already in circulation.

This move from the Hindu community comes after it was revealed that cow fat is being used in the production of the new notes
