Rohtak: At a time when people are being targeted by cow vigilantes, a Muslim father gifting a cow as a special wedding gift to his daughter has now come to fore.
The incident took place in the Sonipat district of Haryana on Monday.
According to the Times of India, Noor Khan, the father of the bride, gifted a cow to his daughter Gulshana as a wedding gift during the `nikkah' at Kharkhodda village.
Noor Khan gave his daughter a calf of a desi breed, which cost him anything between Rs 11,000 and 15,000.
Khan said that his daughter loved cows and used to offer bread and jaggery to any cow that she came across.
Khan, however, regretted that he could not keep a cow due to lack of space at his home.
It is possibly the first such instance in Haryana where a Muslim man has gifted a cow as wedding gift to his daughter.
Gulshana, who is too happy with her father's gift, said that she will take good care of the cow at her in-laws' house.
