Jalli kattu, the famous ancient sporting event till exist in tamilnadu is gonna exit from this year onwards.
The wild life saving board had submitted a petition to ban this game for torturing the bull.
Jalli kattu, sport of bravery is famous in most part of Madhurai especially in Alankanallur. In this event, the bull owner will train the bull, such that it will trash everyone who will come in its way. The money bag or gold chain will be tied around the bull’s neck and then it will be subjected under all sorts of tortures like biting its tail, made noises using instruments like tharai thambatai, giving some drugs which will kindle large amount of anger and it will be free for the race. The young men will try to catch the bull and try to control it. Some lucky will get those money bags, gold chain but some unlucky guys will lose their life. Some lucky guys will even get the daughter of bull owner as the reward. The people from all over the world will turn to madhurai for this mega sport event. But Supreme Court ordered not to conduct this sport event this time. It is banned due to the tortures given to the bulls and lots of young men also losing their life.
Is it fair to ban this 400 years old sport event?
