Jallikattu Special Law is valid - Supreme Court Constitution Bench Verdict
  • Every year in Tamil Nadu Jallikattu competitions are held in Madurai, Sivagangai, Pudukottai, Trichy, Dindigul, Karur and other districts on the occasion of Pongal festival.
  • In this case, the Tamil Nadu government brought the Animal Cruelty Prevention Act amendment to allow jallikattu competitions and bullock cart races. Similarly, in Karnataka and Maharashtra, legal amendments were brought to allow unhindered Kampala competitions with buffaloes and bullock cart races.
  • Against this, cases were filed in the Supreme Court on behalf of organizations including PETA and animal welfare activists. The hearing on these cases was held in a constitutional bench comprising Supreme Court Justices KM Joseph, Ajay Rastogi, Aniruddha Bose, Rishikesh Roy and CD Ravikumar.
  • In this case, the judges who ruled in this case yesterday said, "It is legal for the President to have given permission for the jallikattu competitions held traditionally in Tamil Nadu. Permission is given only after inspection by District Collectors. 
  • The law provides for 3 years imprisonment and a fine of up to Rs 5 lakh for violators. Therefore, the legal amendments brought by the states of Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra and Karnataka will apply to Jallikattu, Kampala and cattle-cart racing. The authorities should ensure that these rules are strictly enforced.
  • Presenting a few photographs and incidents of casualties cannot lead to the conclusion that overall norms are being violated. No one uses weapons during jallikattu matches. That being the case, this game cannot be called a cruel game. There are also casualties in boxing and sword fights. Therefore, we cannot ban jallikattu, kampala and bullock cart races," they said.
