JAIPUR: Rajasthan high court judge Mahesh Chand Sharma said on Wednesday that a peacock does not mate with a peahen to procreate and it was because of this “quality“ that it was declared India's national bird.

Earlier on Wednesday, his last day in office, Sharma had observed while disposing of a petition that cow should be declared the national animal.

Sharma drew a parallel between the cow and peacock to highlight their `holy' qualities. “Peacock ki bhi quality hai, vo bhi mein bata deta hun aapko kyon declare kiya. Jo mor hai ye aajeevan brahm chari hai. Ye kabhi bhi morni ke saath sex nahi karta. Iske jo aansu aate hain, morni usey chug kar garbhvati hoti hai, mor ya morni ko janm deti hai,“ he said at a function to mark his last day in office.

Elaborating on how peacock is considered holy because of its so-called celibacy, Sharma said: “Mor ka pankh bhi bhagwan Krishna ne isi liye lagaya. Sadhu-santon aur mandiron mein issi liye mor ko kaam mein liya jata hai -brahmcharya hai.(Lord Krishna wore the peacock feather for this reason.The feather is used by saints and priests and in temples because peacock is a celibate.)“
