Centre will take a stand on Jallikattu once SC decides about it: Dave

Wednesday, January 11, 2017

New Delhi: Amidst growing chorus for holding bull taming sport Jallikattu, the Centre today said it will take a stand on the issue once the matter is decided by Supreme Court while hoping that the apex court will "take care" of the sentiments of the society.

A day after Tamil Nadu government urged the Centre to consider promulgating an ordinance to enable the conduct of the sport, Union Environment Minister Anil Madhav Dave said that the matter should be looked into especially when there is no violence involved in the sport and it has been a tradition of a society. A day after filmstar Kamal Hassan defended Jallikattu, saying all those who hate the bull sport should give up on biryani too, Dave wondered why cognizance is not being taken when the sport is a animal friendly and non violent.

"Presently the case is in the Supreme Court. The decision is pending. When the decision is pending, at that time, as a government we only can wait for the decision. Before decision, it is difficult to say what can be done.

"But the moment the decision comes, tomorrow or day after tomorrow, we will take our stand. I think the Court will take care of the sentiments of society. It is the tradition. The moment decision will come, we will examine and we will go ahead," Dave told reporters.

Defending the game of Jallikattu , superstar Kamal Haasan had said he is a big fan and all those who hate the bull sport should give up on biryani too.
