The Central Bank of Egypt refuted comments on social media which complained about the rainbow on the new 20 pounds banknote (EGP20.4) as being a statement in favor of LGBT+ rights.
There were also comments on why the new 10 pounds banknote (EGP10.6) shows the newly-built Al-Fattah Al-Aleem mosque, which was inaugurated in 2019 by president Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi, when there are so many with more historical interest.
