Of late, various political and spiritual leaders have been demanding to declare cow as the national animal of the country. Currently, tiger is the national animal of India.

Even the spiritual head of Ajmer Dargah Zainul Abedin Ali Khan asked the Centre to declare cow as the national animal. He also demanded a ban on slaughter of all bovine animals, including cow across the country.

Khan said in April that Muslims should take the initiative to stay away from slaughter of bovine animals and not consume beef so that a good and positive message could be communicated in the country.

The comedy flick- Jattu Engineer-- is directed by Rahim and Honeypreet Insan, his daughter.
