[Resolved] Book all Organisers of Jallikattu - bull taming in Tamilnadu - Naresh Kadyan — Madras High Court gives go ahead to 'jallikattu' : Bull is part and partial of State Emblem of India
The State Emblem of India is an adaptation from the Sarnath Lion Capital of Emporer Ashoka, who ruled from 272 BC to 232 BC. It is preserved in the Sarnath Museum, near Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh. The Lion Capital has four lions standing back to back mounted on a circular abacus. The frieze of the abacus is adorned with sculptures in high relief of an elephant, a galloping horse, a bull and a lion separated by intervening Dharma Chakra (Wheels of Law). The abacus rests on a bell-shaped lotus.
The profile of the Lion Capital showing three lions mounted on the abacus with a Dharma Chakra in the centre, a bull on the right and a galloping horse on the left, and outlines of Dharma Chakras on the extreme right and left has been adopted as the State emblem of India. The bell-shaped lotus has been omitted.
The motto "Satyameva Jayate" (truth alone triumphs) – written in Devanagari script below the profile of the Lion Capital is part of the State Emblem of India. The motto is taken from an ancient scripture the Mundaka Upanishad.
MADURAI: In a relief to organisers of the traditional sport of "jallikattu" (bull taming), held as part of the harvest festival Pongal, Madras High Court today permitted holding of the event which is popular in rural areas of Tamil Nadu.
In its interim order, the court, however, directed that all guidelines issued by the Supreme Court, high court and the Tamil Nadu Jallikattu Regulation Act-2009 should be followed while conducting the sport.
Justice Chitra Venkatraman and Justice Karuppiah also warned that if the guidelines were not followed, the court could reconsider its decision. The Judges said the organisers should keep in mind that "Pongal", which falls on January 15, "is not a festival for human beings alone, but for four legged creatures as well. Hence sufficient care should be taken in conducting the event."
Reports should be submitted to the court on how Jallikattu was held at various places in Madurai, Sivaganga and Tiruchirappalli districts on January 15-17 19, 29 and 30, the judges said after hearing three petitions by an organiser of the Jallikattu, an animal rights activist and Animal Welfare Board of India today.
The judges also directed Additional Solicitor General of India to get reasons from the Centre for issuing a notification banning the using of bull as performing animals after the " Tamil Nadu Jallikattu Regulation Act" was passed and asked Tamil Nadu government as to why they were permitting to conduct Jallikattu.
Bull is a part and partial of the State Emblem and no one can abuse, torture and use bull as performing animal, if any body can do then they are violating the Central Govt. notification which ban performance of bull and insult of the State Emblem of India, hence OIPA in India and PFA Haryana raise this issue and ask AWBI, PETA and all fellow animal rights activist to follow OIPA in India and PFA Haryana.
