In New Delhi, the judges said that the final question would be whether the jallikattu competition, which is considered by many as animal cruelty, should be allowed to be held under any circumstances.
In 2014, the Supreme Court banned Jallikattu competition, but the Tamil Nadu government enacted an emergency law and started the competition from 2017.
Organizations including ‘BETA’ have appealed to the Supreme Court against this emergency law. These petitions are being investigated by a five-judge constitutional bench.
The case is still pending in the Supreme Court. During yesterday’s hearing, senior lawyer Shyam Dewan, who appeared for the petitioner, argued, “Though the Tamil Nadu government passed the emergency law and continued to conduct the jallikattu competition, there is no change in the bull’s harassment in the field.”
Hearing this, the judges said that the final question would be whether Jallikattu, which is considered by many as animal cruelty, can be conducted under any circumstances, whether it can be allowed or whether Jallikattu cannot be conducted under any circumstances.
