Honorable Supreme Court of India Passes Landmark Verdict, BANS JALLIKATTU

The laudable efforts of PETA India and the Animal Welfare Board of India bore fruits as the Supreme Court upheld its Ban on the Bull-taming/bull-fighting sport. Jallikattu was held in the state of Tamil Nadu in the month of January during Pongal Festivities to celebrate winter crop yield. An atrocious route to entertainment for young men engaging in the event to subdue the bulls, where the unfortunate animal as investigators point out were fed liquor as well as had to forcibly bear the burn of chili powder tossed in its eyes before being freed from an enclosure only to be senselessly hound by individuals seeking unreasonable entertainment.

An inspection carried out by a team of scrutineers from Peta India and Animal Rahat in the month of January this year and was sanctioned by the Animal Welfare Board of India exposed the cruelty bombarded on bulls in the Jallikattu events. The scrutiny covered four districts of Tamil Nadu and not just pointed out towards animal cruelty but also the game being dangerous to humans. The report further unraveled the cringe-inducing harm done to innocent bulls during these events, from tails being twisted & bitten to punching and stabbing the defenseless creature. Bull races involved hitting the Bull with sticks studded with nails and bull fights usually ended with the death of one of the bulls.
SC was clear to point out the protection and reverence shown to cows in our country and constitution, and was not in favor of the unfairness towards bulls through sports like Jallikattu. Justice Dipak Misra and Justice Rohinton Nairman comprised the bench and clarified their stance on adhering to animal protection laws outlined in the constitution as an obligation of every Indian/individual.

Play Games on Computer for Recreation, Harming animals cannot be a source of amusement and fun; was the mood in the court room recently. The bench expressed its firm opinion to uphold SC’s 2014 Judgment to ban the sport. The Government of India early this year passed an order to lift the ban on Jallikattu, however in no time SC suspended the centre’s notification and issued a stay. However the situation has been recently concluded by the court on a fortunate note and confirming that Jallikattu will not be permitted as it violates the provisions of the animal protection law.
