Subject:   Jallikattu : Bull taming is a insult of State Emblem of india - Sukanya Kadyan

Letter:    Greetings,

           Jallikattu - bull taming and Bullfights involve torturing naturally peaceful animals by
           causing immense fear, stress and pain to the bulls and cows involved. The animals
           are tormented and painfully attacked throughout the fights, causing prolonged
           suffering and trauma.
           Animals are being abused for joy, which is harmful to the animals, human beings
           as well and same is a violation of the legislation's concerned, where as bull is a
           part and partial of the state emblem of India.
           The United Nations affiliated OIPA chapter in India along with PFA Haryana raised
           this issue to stop the insult of the state emblem of India, where as Madras High
           Court, Madurai bench allowed Jallikattu - bull taming in Tamilnadu.
           GOVTN/E/2012/00127 and PRSEC/E/2012/00603 dated January 14, 2012 :
           International Animal Welfare Fortnight begins................
           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.
It has been learnt that the Animal Welfare Board of India - AWBI is being
compelled to register bulls as performing animals against the law, hence AWBI is
requested to reject all proposals.
The Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960 be replaced immediately with the
Animal welfare Act, 2011. All abused bulls be rescued and rehabilitated
immediately, AWBI should move to the Hon'ble Supreme Court of India to get stay
on the Madras High Court - Madurai bench orders / submit new facts about
violation of the State Emblem legislation's before the Madurai bench, to reconsider
its order.
Special Representative to Government of Tamil Nadu at New Delhi is here by
requested to allow UN affiliated OIPA deputation to deliver this petition in person
under leadership of Abhishek Kadyan, Mobile - 09813010595.

Description: Greetings, Jallikattu - bull taming and Bullfights involve torturing naturally peaceful animals by causing immense fear, stress and pain to the bulls and cows involved. The animals are tormented and painfully attacked throughout the fights, causing prolonged suffering and trauma. Animals are being abused for joy, which is harmful to the animals, human beings as well and same is a violation of the legislation's concerned, where as bull is a part and partial of the state emblem of India. The United Nations affiliated OIPA chapter in India along with PFA Haryana raised this issue to stop the insult of the state emblem of India, where as Madras High Court, Madurai bench allowed Jallikattu - bull taming in Tamilnadu.

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 ha
