Hindu leaders in Britain are considering banning the new £5 note from temples such as Neasden after discovering it is made from beef fat.
The Hindu Forum called the use of cow’s fat in the £5 notes "totally and utterly unacceptable".
The decision to discuss the next steps comes after the plastic note, made with beef tallow, caused outrage from Hindus, Jains and vegetarians.
Brent temples, including Kingsbury and Neasden Swaminaryan, could ban people from donating the notes following the relevation.
Trupti Patel, from the Hindu Forum said: "Using a non-vegetarian source is totally and utterly unacceptable.
"In this country we spend so much time and effort on interfaith matters, so much time and effort on being sensitive to each other’s needs and then, all of a sudden, out of the blue, without any consultation, these notes come out with traces of non-vegetarian material."
The Bank of England has said it is looking to make the note vegan-friendly after more than 114,000 people have signed a petition, outraged at the use of animal products.
