Stay on Jallikattu

jallikattuThe Supreme Court issued stay orders on the Jallikattu (taming of the bulls) in Tamilnadu during the Pongal festival even as the Central government permitted the sport stipulating certain conditions. The bench of Chief Justice Thakur stayed the jallikattu on the petitions of the Board of Animal Protection and PETA. The petitioners argued that the permission by the Central Government was contrary to the judgment of the Supreme Court in 2014 banning the sport. The petitioners said that jallikattu is in contravention to the rules of the Animal Protection Act.
