No Jallikattu This Year As..
4 days ago

On Thursday, the Supreme Court turned down a plea seeking its intervention to pass judgment on bull-taming sport Jallikattu before Saturday. With this, there is likely to be no Jallikattu this year in Tamil Nadu. The court said that it is unfair to ask the judges to pass their order.

 

 

The court added that it cannot hear a petition challenging its ban on Jallikattu as it is in the process of delivering judgement on the validity of a notification by the Centre allowing the sport. 

 

For the last two years, the Jallikattu has not been held in Tamil Nadu because of the ban imposed by the Supreme Court. Also, the Animal rights groups oppose it saying it subjects the bulls to torture and severe injuries.
