Citing Indonesia’s currency notes he said that Indonesia being a Muslim-dominated nation, has a picture of Lord Ganesh on their notes. He said, “Indonesia is a Muslim country. There are 85% Muslims and only 2% Hindus but there is a picture of Shri Ganesh Ji on the currency. When Indonesia can, why can’t we? The photos can be printed on fresh notes.”
