The RM5 you are currently holding to pay your parking ticket may be haram!
Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) Prof. Dr. Zhari Ismail from the School of Pharmaceutical Sciences revealed that the nation’s printed ringgit is believed to have traces of pork fat.
The information which was obtained from industry players themselves revealed that the haram substance may be used in the process of printing the nation’s currency.
“If there are traces of pork fat used in the printing process, there is a need for a statement to be released to verify that the claims made are true or false.”
Speaking to Malaysia Gazette, Zhari says that tests need to be done as in previous cases, traces of pork DNA and e-coli were found on the American Dollar.
Animal fat or tallow is not uncommonly used when making new money.
Used as a source of stearic acid, tallow allows the note to be lubricated and ensure that it is smooth in your wallet – it gives your money anti-static and anti-slip properties according to The Sun UK.
As the world switches over from traditional paper money to polymer compositions, the use of animal tallow is common around the world.
