Jallikattu
– Truths and Mis-conceptions
and the unjust SC ban
Purpose of this Presentation:
To explain why SC ban on jallikattu is wrong and destructive to our
hindu society and its traditions.
To clear the mis-conceptions about jallikattu and other native festivals
based on bulls.
To create awareness about the traditional festivals of our bharath, and
how it is being targetted by foreign NGOs.
What Jallikattu is NOT
Jallikattu is NOT same as Spanish Bull Fight. Its
NOT a fight at all. Jallikattu is bull embracing
festival.
Jallikattu is NOT entertainment sports of urban
kind. It is a Hindu Religious festival, conducted
as part of pongal festival.
Jallikattu bulls are NOT killed as in spanish bull
fight.
Are Both same??
Spanish Bull Fight
Single Fighter. Deceives bull and inserts
sword at its spine on back.
Sword inserted till the bull collapses. Slow
Death.
Entertainments sports, where millions
watch.
Jallikattu
Many players. Embraces hump for 10-15
seconds and declared as winner.
Players unarmed. Nose rope of bulls cut.
No harm to bulls in the arena.
Only players hurt. Bulls NOT hurt in any
way
Part of Pongal and temple festival.
Are Both same??
Spanish Bull Fight Jallikattu
Are Both same??
Spanish Bull Fight
Dies at the end of sport
Jallikattu
Bulls emerges victorious unharmed
Jallikattu is also a martial game
Madurai Nayaks
Bull embracing festival of madurai
promoted in big organised way by
madurai nayaks, a subsidiary of
vijayanagara kings
Brave youths participating in jallikattu
appointed army chiefs.
When pandyas & other kshatriyas failed
to check malikafur invasion, it is
vijayanagara army, consisting of pastoral
communities (gollas, thottiya nayaks),
who successfully thwarted it and restored
hindu rule in madurai.
The pastoral communities comprising
vijayanagara army was naturally hardened
bcoz of their nomadic life, and their ability
to maintain large herds of cows and bulls.
Jallikattu should be seen from this
historic background.
Jallikattu is Religious Festival
Muniyaandi Kaalai
– Go puja is done for this bull with
alangaram and released first in to the
arena.
The players revere it as divine and never
attempts to embrace it.
Vaadi Vaasal
The picture speaks a lot.
Look at the Vaishnava symbo and
temple colours in walls.
Bull festival done for soundara perumal
temple also.
The thottiya nayakkar community
conducts this festival in all their villages.
They maintain saami madu in their village.
Jallikattu Ban
• SC Banned all rural sports involving bulls, like
jallikattu, manju virattu, rekla race.
• Ban based on Western Interpretation of PCA
Act and biased AWBI report on jallikattu.
• Invokes speciesm, racism, casteism, etc.
• Terms Jallikattu as barbaric sport.
PCA Acts
• PCA Act originally enacted in 1890s, for transport animals and
captured animals (circus animals) within municipalities. It was NOT
applied for non-municipal areas, even though whole of tamilnadu
was under british rule. It was sensible, bcoz at that time, bullock
cart was primary means of transport, and hence regulated.
• In 1960, amendments made PCA act, to extend it to whole of india,
without any proper justification. Clearly, activism of NGOs, which
had free run in Nehru rule.
• The Supreme Court judgement solely relies on this PCA act of 1960,
and AWBI report to ban these sports. Clearly this is lobbying by
PETA and other vested interests.
AWBI report – mischievous, manipulated & biased
AWBI report is a naked and deliberately manipulated one to
support the PETA stance. Evident from their list of accusations.
A sample from AWBI report:
“No sanitation facilities were made available, and bulls were forced to stand
together in the accumulated faeces and urine for hours. The accumulated waste
attracts flies that bother the animals and cause them discomfort. The eggs laid by
the flies may lead to maggot infestation of any wounds the bulls may have”
This is very comical. They have used the term faeces bcoz the term dung has different
connotation. Do hindus treat cow dung as faeces?
How come, dungs of cows and bulls which hindus use it in all walks of their life (in
temples, cow urine in grahapravesam, cow dung for paving floors) be harmful to bulls
alone?
Do cow and bull dungs, attract maggot infestation as claimed by AWBI? If so, whole of
bharath would be suffering from maggot infestation.
SC Judgement invokes Speciesm, Racism, Casteism,
What has these western ideologies to do with the traditional
society of tamilnadu?
Cows and bulls are always part of our family, whereas in the west,
they were grown in large farms. These ideologies have no
relevance to our societal ethos, which reveres cows and bulls as
supreme to even gods.
In all temples (say for eg, tirupati, srirangam etc), the first puja is
always done to the cow, and only then pujas done to moolavar.
In madheswaran hills, the bulls are worshipped as perumal bull
and taken to worship to even distant places.
Can we apply these western ideologies to such society?
TNRJ Act Struck down by SC
Many of the accusation of PETA, is valid before 2008, where
jallikattu was done spontaneously. But tamilnadu government
enacted “Tamilnadu Regulation of Jallikattu act” and regulated
the event. After that, all shortcomings rectified. This act was
widely welcomed by jallikattu organisers, bull owners, and the
players.
Infact, TNRJ act was complementary to PCA act, which is aimed to
avoiding harm to both bulls and players.
YET, Court has made this TNRJ act invalid, and the supreme court
judge has struck down this act.
Devastating effect of Banning Jallikattu
 The Jallikattu Bulls, numbering around 600 to 100 would be sold by bull
owners, and end up in slaughter house. Additionally, no new bulls would be
reared.
 These bulls are the only remaining quality genetic stock of our native cow
breeds. Bcos bull population had drastically reduced, bcoz its utility as
transport animal and breeding bull was lost. Government promoted Artificial
Insemination, making maintaining breeding bulls uneconomical and unviable.
Already, Vechur cow breeds of kerala was lost,when that government
castrated all native bulls. Today only few hundred bulls remain.
Jallikattu bulls are fed with highly nutritious food, and maintained well by bull
owners. Thus jallikattu serves NOT only as a religious festival, but also as
means of preserving our genetic assets of our cows.
Conspiracy to Destroy our Native Cow Breeds
 Green revolution destroyed more than 1,20,000 native varieties of
Rice and wheat in india. Pls refer:
http://www.vijayvaani.com/ArticleDisplay.aspx?aid=2137
White revolution - a conspiracy to destroy native cow breeds. Luckily,
our social traditions ensured that this is lost. That is now being
targetted in the name of animal rights. Current SC judgement bans all
native traditions involving bulls or cows. Mission accomplished.
For list of native breeds of Tamilnadu pls visit below link
http://tamilnaducattle.blogspot.in/2011/01/tamilnadu-cattle-breeds.html
Beef lobby, dairy lobby and associated NGOs heavily involved in this.
As per sources, Foreign persons (German) seen in SC during judgement.
UPA opened cow slaughter house targetting native breeds. NOT just
for meat. Jallikattu ban to be seen from that context.
What can we do?
Indian Cow Breeds (Bos Indicus) should be declared as National
Animal. Separate Act should be enacted for this.
Amend PCA Act, to exempt all native festivals from PCA act, and make
it more meaningful and localised. (instead of being generic like it is
now, thus leading to weird interpretations)
All breeds of Dhesi Cow breeds should be properly documented and
preserved, irrespective of milk yield. Every Dhesi breed is associated
with temples of their region. Eg. Abhishegam in Srirangam temple to
be done ONLY with milk of local cow breed. Same with Puri
Jagannathar.
Artificial Insemination should be banned atleast for Native Cow
Breeds. It will ensure that atleast one breeding bull is maintained in
each of 6 lakh villages of bharath. Govt shud provide incentive.

Jallikattu - truths and mis-conceptions

  • 1. Jallikattu – Truths and Mis-conceptions and the unjust SC ban Purpose of this Presentation: To explain why SC ban on jallikattu is wrong and destructive to our hindu society and its traditions. To clear the mis-conceptions about jallikattu and other native festivals based on bulls. To create awareness about the traditional festivals of our bharath, and how it is being targetted by foreign NGOs.
  • 2. What Jallikattu is NOT Jallikattu is NOT same as Spanish Bull Fight. Its NOT a fight at all. Jallikattu is bull embracing festival. Jallikattu is NOT entertainment sports of urban kind. It is a Hindu Religious festival, conducted as part of pongal festival. Jallikattu bulls are NOT killed as in spanish bull fight.
  • 3. Are Both same?? Spanish Bull Fight Single Fighter. Deceives bull and inserts sword at its spine on back. Sword inserted till the bull collapses. Slow Death. Entertainments sports, where millions watch. Jallikattu Many players. Embraces hump for 10-15 seconds and declared as winner. Players unarmed. Nose rope of bulls cut. No harm to bulls in the arena. Only players hurt. Bulls NOT hurt in any way Part of Pongal and temple festival.
  • 4. Are Both same?? Spanish Bull Fight Jallikattu
  • 5. Are Both same?? Spanish Bull Fight Dies at the end of sport Jallikattu Bulls emerges victorious unharmed
  • 6. Jallikattu is also a martial game Madurai Nayaks Bull embracing festival of madurai promoted in big organised way by madurai nayaks, a subsidiary of vijayanagara kings Brave youths participating in jallikattu appointed army chiefs. When pandyas & other kshatriyas failed to check malikafur invasion, it is vijayanagara army, consisting of pastoral communities (gollas, thottiya nayaks), who successfully thwarted it and restored hindu rule in madurai. The pastoral communities comprising vijayanagara army was naturally hardened bcoz of their nomadic life, and their ability to maintain large herds of cows and bulls. Jallikattu should be seen from this historic background.
  • 7. Jallikattu is Religious Festival Muniyaandi Kaalai – Go puja is done for this bull with alangaram and released first in to the arena. The players revere it as divine and never attempts to embrace it. Vaadi Vaasal The picture speaks a lot. Look at the Vaishnava symbo and temple colours in walls. Bull festival done for soundara perumal temple also. The thottiya nayakkar community conducts this festival in all their villages. They maintain saami madu in their village.
  • 8. Jallikattu Ban • SC Banned all rural sports involving bulls, like jallikattu, manju virattu, rekla race. • Ban based on Western Interpretation of PCA Act and biased AWBI report on jallikattu. • Invokes speciesm, racism, casteism, etc. • Terms Jallikattu as barbaric sport.
  • 9. PCA Acts • PCA Act originally enacted in 1890s, for transport animals and captured animals (circus animals) within municipalities. It was NOT applied for non-municipal areas, even though whole of tamilnadu was under british rule. It was sensible, bcoz at that time, bullock cart was primary means of transport, and hence regulated. • In 1960, amendments made PCA act, to extend it to whole of india, without any proper justification. Clearly, activism of NGOs, which had free run in Nehru rule. • The Supreme Court judgement solely relies on this PCA act of 1960, and AWBI report to ban these sports. Clearly this is lobbying by PETA and other vested interests.
  • 10. AWBI report – mischievous, manipulated & biased AWBI report is a naked and deliberately manipulated one to support the PETA stance. Evident from their list of accusations. A sample from AWBI report: “No sanitation facilities were made available, and bulls were forced to stand together in the accumulated faeces and urine for hours. The accumulated waste attracts flies that bother the animals and cause them discomfort. The eggs laid by the flies may lead to maggot infestation of any wounds the bulls may have” This is very comical. They have used the term faeces bcoz the term dung has different connotation. Do hindus treat cow dung as faeces? How come, dungs of cows and bulls which hindus use it in all walks of their life (in temples, cow urine in grahapravesam, cow dung for paving floors) be harmful to bulls alone? Do cow and bull dungs, attract maggot infestation as claimed by AWBI? If so, whole of bharath would be suffering from maggot infestation.
  • 11. SC Judgement invokes Speciesm, Racism, Casteism, What has these western ideologies to do with the traditional society of tamilnadu? Cows and bulls are always part of our family, whereas in the west, they were grown in large farms. These ideologies have no relevance to our societal ethos, which reveres cows and bulls as supreme to even gods. In all temples (say for eg, tirupati, srirangam etc), the first puja is always done to the cow, and only then pujas done to moolavar. In madheswaran hills, the bulls are worshipped as perumal bull and taken to worship to even distant places. Can we apply these western ideologies to such society?
  • 12. TNRJ Act Struck down by SC Many of the accusation of PETA, is valid before 2008, where jallikattu was done spontaneously. But tamilnadu government enacted “Tamilnadu Regulation of Jallikattu act” and regulated the event. After that, all shortcomings rectified. This act was widely welcomed by jallikattu organisers, bull owners, and the players. Infact, TNRJ act was complementary to PCA act, which is aimed to avoiding harm to both bulls and players. YET, Court has made this TNRJ act invalid, and the supreme court judge has struck down this act.
  • 13. Devastating effect of Banning Jallikattu  The Jallikattu Bulls, numbering around 600 to 100 would be sold by bull owners, and end up in slaughter house. Additionally, no new bulls would be reared.  These bulls are the only remaining quality genetic stock of our native cow breeds. Bcos bull population had drastically reduced, bcoz its utility as transport animal and breeding bull was lost. Government promoted Artificial Insemination, making maintaining breeding bulls uneconomical and unviable. Already, Vechur cow breeds of kerala was lost,when that government castrated all native bulls. Today only few hundred bulls remain. Jallikattu bulls are fed with highly nutritious food, and maintained well by bull owners. Thus jallikattu serves NOT only as a religious festival, but also as means of preserving our genetic assets of our cows.
  • 14. Conspiracy to Destroy our Native Cow Breeds  Green revolution destroyed more than 1,20,000 native varieties of Rice and wheat in india. Pls refer: http://www.vijayvaani.com/ArticleDisplay.aspx?aid=2137 White revolution - a conspiracy to destroy native cow breeds. Luckily, our social traditions ensured that this is lost. That is now being targetted in the name of animal rights. Current SC judgement bans all native traditions involving bulls or cows. Mission accomplished. For list of native breeds of Tamilnadu pls visit below link http://tamilnaducattle.blogspot.in/2011/01/tamilnadu-cattle-breeds.html Beef lobby, dairy lobby and associated NGOs heavily involved in this. As per sources, Foreign persons (German) seen in SC during judgement. UPA opened cow slaughter house targetting native breeds. NOT just for meat. Jallikattu ban to be seen from that context.
  • 15. What can we do? Indian Cow Breeds (Bos Indicus) should be declared as National Animal. Separate Act should be enacted for this. Amend PCA Act, to exempt all native festivals from PCA act, and make it more meaningful and localised. (instead of being generic like it is now, thus leading to weird interpretations) All breeds of Dhesi Cow breeds should be properly documented and preserved, irrespective of milk yield. Every Dhesi breed is associated with temples of their region. Eg. Abhishegam in Srirangam temple to be done ONLY with milk of local cow breed. Same with Puri Jagannathar. Artificial Insemination should be banned atleast for Native Cow Breeds. It will ensure that atleast one breeding bull is maintained in each of 6 lakh villages of bharath. Govt shud provide incentive.
