Jallikkattu – Not Sport, But Farce
Jallikkattu now becomes a hot potato topic inside the United States. After waging a felony warfare for almost a decade, the Animal Welfare Board of India (AWBI) and Animal Welfare activists have won their case in opposition to “animal sports activities” including Jallikkattu, Okla (bullock-cart race) etc., related to bulls. A very best Court bench comprising Justice KS Radhakrishnan and Justice Pinaki Chandra Ghose, in a landmark judgment on May 2014, banned Jallikkattu, Rekha and different such ‘sports’. The Supreme Court also struck down the “Tamil Nadu Regulation of Jallikkattu Act (TNRJ Act) 2009”. Subsequently, on June 22, the Madurai Bench of Madras High Court dismissed 18 petitions, pending from 2009, which sought permission to conduct Jallikkattu within the State inside the mild of Supreme Court’s ban.

Since then, a debate has raged between supporters and warring parties of the ban, and as there are valid points on both aspects, it’s miles imperative to have a clear information of the problem and to plot the destiny course of motion. The Bullfight is a conventional recreation as evidenced by using Seals excavated at Mohenjo-Daro and via scriptures consisting of Bhagavatam; over the years the game were given confined to certain elements of the country and moved from the village to cities and towns. It has become a “unfastened for all”, no longer limited to the traditional agriculturist network.

The cruelty inflicted upon the helpless animals is past expression. Cutting the ear, pulling, twisting and biting the tail, soiling the tail and hind legs with faeces, making them stand for hours, causing injuries with the aid of chasing them and hitting and poking them with sticks and knives, applying irritants into their eyes and noses, using tight and thick nostril-ropes, retaining them in cramped conditions without enough food and water, forcing them to drink liquor and even spectators beating them also are cruelties exact with photographic and video photograph evidence in the AWBI file, four years after the proclamation of TNJR Act through Tamil Nadu authorities.

The day Jallikkattu moved from villages to towns and cities, far faraway from the temples, it lost its sanctity and traditional fervor and gained in industrial flavor inside the method. The greed for money and repute multiplied and commitment to tradition decreased. The rural traditional game became a city and suburban business leisure, displaying scant regard for the properly-being of animals and people. We have to stumble upon deaths of ratings of players and spectators through the years. Even throughout the so- known as training duration, the bulls are subjected to cruelties together with forcing it to thrash its head and horns repeatedly towards the ground, attempting it to two poles tightly immobilizing it and many others..

The Bulls have been regarded and dealt with as items or gadgets of entertainment in place of dwelling beings. This forced the AWBI and animal welfare activists to behave against this farce and the relaxation is history.


In the call of a way of life, it is not clean if the organizers blanketed Indus Valley Seals, verses from Bhagavatam and other archaeological and literary portions of evidence of their defense before the Supreme Court. The argument that twisting tails, slicing ears and the use of nose- ropes are not cruelties will not reduce ice with the Court of law, which perspectives the case under the PCA Act. The organizers needed to protect their case beneath the purview of the PCA Act. They were now not capable of present a legitimate defense, due to the fact they violated conditions even in 2012 and 2013, 4 years after those were imposed through the Supreme Court.

It is argued via organisers and supporters of Jallikkattu that the bulls are sent for slaughter because of the ban of the sport. They declare that the bull is reared with love and affection as a family member; looked after via feeding the distinctly nutritious food with special attention for its properly-being; and that as a good deal as Rs.500/ in keeping with day is spent at the bull, all yr round. When they can ship their personal family member to the slaughterhouse simply because Jallikkattu is banned, isn’t always the declare of taking care of the bull with love and affection farcical? Doesn’t this prove that they’re for money handiest? Are they not spending a lot due to the fact the Jallikkattu bull’s market price is over Rs. 1Lakh?

They argue that Jallikkattu helps them in safety, protection and breeding of native livestock. If they really want to defend and keep native breeds, why need to they send the bulls for slaughter simply due to recreation is banned?. Is Jallikkattu the simplest choice to breed native farm animals? Can’t they use them for breeding, farming and producing biogas, organic manure and different dung- based totally products?

The day the agriculturist replaced bulls with tractors, he lost his credibility; uncovered his avarice. The day he commenced compromising on the real lifestyle of Jallikkattu and made it an industrial game, causing ache on helpless animals, he lost his ground for arguments. It is a farce that the bulls are sold for slaughter best after the ban on Jallikkattu. Selling male progeny has been going on for years! As he has begun selling them for slaughter, he can no more declare that he is obsessed on breeding them.
