Tuesday will see a hearing on allowing Jallikattu in Tamil Nadu at the Supreme Court. The Animal Welfare Board has moved the Court against the Centre`s announcement that lifts the ban on the sport.
An official from PETA said, Of course we are going to challenge it (in the court) and we will fight until the animals are given their rights again. But because of notification in the coming few days whatever deaths of humans and animals happen it is responsibility of the ministry, which has done something unconstitutional.
In an official notification, the Ministry of Environment Forest and Climate Change said, Bulls may be continue to be exhibited or trained as a performing animal, at events such as Jallikattu in Tamil Nadu and bullock cart races in Maharashtra, Karnataka, Punjab, Haryana, Kerala and Gujarat in the manner by the customs of any community or practiced traditionally under the customs or as part of culture.
