As expected, Bank Negara Malaysia response to Dinar and Dirham Kelantan:
“Only Bank Negara has the right under the law to issue currency in Malaysia”
Before that, Husam, Kelantan Economic Planning, Finance and Welfare Committee chairman said:
“its gold dinar and silver dirham would not be made a second currency in the state. Syariah currency was instead seen as an alternative for use in the barter trade system”
“Several news reports about the dinar being Kelantan’s second currency are not accurate and have caused confusion. I do not see why this issue has to be blown up after Kelantan introduced the use of the dinar, as it has been around since the beginning of Islam,” he said in Kota Baru yesterday.
PS: I see.. no wonder lah the mak cik and pak cik at pasar did not selling in Dinar or Dirham 🙂
