New Possible Issue: 2016: Sant Kabir
« on: August 09, 2016, 03:38:21 AM »
Dear Friends

It is understood that new commemorative coins may be released on Sant Kabirdas.

Kabir was a 15th-century Indian mystic poet and saint, whose writings influenced Hinduism's Bhakti movement and his verses are found in Sikhism's scripture Adi Granth. His early life was in a Muslim family, but he was strongly influenced by his teacher, the Hindu bhakti leader Ramananda.

Kabir is known for being critical of both Hinduism and Islam, stating that the former were misguided by the Vedas and the latter by the Quran, and questioning their meaningless rites of initiation such as the sacred thread and circumcision respectively. During his lifetime, he was threatened by both Hindus and Muslims for his views.When he died, both Hindus and Muslims he had inspired claimed him as theirs. (wikipedia)

There isn't any specific occasion. This would be one of the generic issues.
