DMK passes resolution urging Centre to lift ban on Jallikattu
Chennai (Tamil Nadu) [India], Dec. 4 (ANI): The Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) on Wednesday passes a resolution urging the Centre to lift THE ban on bull taming sport Jallikattu.
The resolution was passed in the DMK's general council meeting here.
Earlier in May 2014, the Supreme Court banned the practice of Jallikattu, citing animal welfare issues.
The Government of India later on January 8, 2016, passed an order exempting Jallikattu from all performances where bulls cannot be used, effectively reversing the ban.
The Supreme Court, however, on January 15, 2016, upheld its ban on the event, leading to protests across Tamil Nadu. (ANI)
