Observing that Jallikattu amounted to heaping cruelty on animals, an apex court bench headed by Justice Dipak Mishra said it cannot be permitted in the 21st century.

The ruling came two days ahead of the start of Pongal festival when Jallikattu is played in rural parts of Tamil Nadu.

Having stayed the notification issued by the central government on Friday, which effectively permitted Jallikattu, the apex court issued notice to New Delhi and other respondents.

One of the oldest living ancient sports, the bulls are specifically bred for the event. Jallikattu has led to numerous deaths in recent decades as young men try to tame well built bulls.

  1. Dear readers,

    Why the Highest court of India does not intervene in ‘Beef ban’ which denied by various BJP ruled states?

    Is once right to eat what he likes is not a part of constitutional draft of India?

    Jai Hind

  2. I don’t remember our Originaalige Rampa protesting about this ‘Jallikattu’ practice and turning over his 4th std pass & 5th (with FLYING colors – ALL RED of course!) and 5th FAIL ‘shertipicate’ to the Indian Govt. as a mark of ‘intolerance’?

    Btw, has he posted Arnab’s show of tonight – RightToWorship? Or, maybe he was/is ‘snowed-in’ by Ammon Bundy?

    However, no matter what – our Rampa will NEVER fail to REPEAT a few things such as:

    1. Call India a 3rd world country — ad nauseam! probably thinks he has more blue blood than the blue-blooded ‘royalty’ from Philadelphia!

    2. Praise Modi & the ‘MACK’ in India model. (Eg – Mfg of Rafale Jets in France, Bullet trains in Jaapana and EVEN the Sardar Patel white-elephant statue to China!) MACK in India indeed!

    3. Provide proof about my allegedly ‘rejected’ US visa.

    4. Agree to the fact that he bangs on his beloved Mridangam as he sings ‘Silent Night, Holy Night’ (in chaste SAMSKRUTAM – what else? Aramaic?) during the ‘Good Guv Day’ celebs in the US. Oops….. The gudda governance was in India ONLY! All thanks to Scrooge Smriti Grinch irani – at the behest of her Master! 🙂

    5. Yammer incessantly that he has cracked a high-profile case such as that of Jack the Ripper, Ted Bundy – while ALL he does & can BEST do, is, – copy-paste a few names of some morons apprehended while smuggling gold at MIA and say he is….. sop… sophi…… velly velly sophisticated! 🙂

  3. Sharia Shaikh has officially lost it!! He is demanding one form of animal cruelty in response to another form of animal cruelty!! When we debate a silly tradition of agonizing bulls in the name of sport, he demands animal slaughter!!! I guess this is what happens if you are raised on a heavy diet of centuries old tribal values.

    @ Joker Praveena Pinto – What’s your point again? Really hard to understand your gibberish. Hope you are having fun at ‘udyoga mela’ !! smiles…

    • @ Joker Praveena Pinto – What’s your point again? Really hard to understand your gibberish. – Joker RampaNNA

      “Point”? Danggggg! Just 2-3 MAIN points ya, Pyare Rampu’ji, and they are as follows:

      1. You are a Maha Joker and I simply love your daily dose of Jokes. I could probably skip my coffee, but NOT you and your jokes, ya Rampa! So, God bless! take your pick outta which God you wanna take special blessings from. I mean, you have such a HUGE choice. Some say… some 33 million.. some say 3 in one.. some say JUST 1.. while you say NONE. And YET, you stand staunch by the SD and blame every fellow EVEN before they say something remotely controversial about the SD followers:)

      2. Murudeshwara (14.0936° N, 74.4838° E) is your fav place in the whole wide wild big bad world and YOU come down JUST once in Ten years JUST to sit by the beach-side.

      3. if ONLY you had completed your 5th std…. (let alone your SSLC) before fleeing to the US (was it the Indian ‘intolerance’ then, or MERE flatulence? – or BOTH?), you would have made sense of what people write. C’mon… admit it. It was JUST ‘पेट पूजा’ which made you FLEE! And then again, you keep yammering – ಇಂಡಿಯಾ ಈಸ್ ಆ ಥರ್ಡ್ ವರ್ಲ್ಡ್ ಕಂಟ್ರೀ! AND then THRICE again you keep talking about ಅಖಂಡ ಭಾರತ Lol! truly, I tell thee, you have missed out on your TRUE vocation.

      Keep joking ya Rampu. I simply love it. 🙂

      • More gibberish trying to explain earlier gibberish!! What else can you expect from anaganwaadi student who didn’t even know about murudeshwara?? This is the direct product of ignorance-worshiping taught by his foreign masters!! LOL
