No Jallikattu in Tamil Nadu this year

Tue 12 Jan 2016, 13:53:13
The Supreme Court on Tuesday issued an interim stay on the Centre's January 2016 notification allowing Jallikattu and bullock cart races.
The Bench of Justices Dipak Misra and N.V. Ramana prima facie agreed with the arguments made by a batch of petitioners, led by Animal Welfare Board of India, that Jallikattu is "inherently cruel" and bulls cannot be used or tortured as performing animals for human festivity.
Admitting the petitions, the Bench gave the Tamil Nadu Government and the Centre four weeks to file affidavits in response to the petitions.
A stay on the January 7 notification means that the 2014 SC judgment banning jallikattu will continue to prevail during Pongal starting on January 15.
