Women Pivotal in Jallikattu Struggle

After nearly six decades, the Great #Jallikattu Revolution saw hundreds of thousands of Women pour out on the streets of all parts of Tamilnadu – Cities, Towns and Villages alike.

Women brought their families along. Mothers confidently brought their children; Wives brought their husbands; Girls brought their friends.They occupied the public places of #Tamilnadu and did not return till we achieved success.

Great women like Mrs. Gouhar Azeez, Mrs. Nandini Madam (Chennai) were our mentors, Mrs. Kavitha (Japan), Mrs. Kayal Vizhi Arunkumar and hundreds of other friends fought to #SaveJallikattu.

I salute these brave women were the real reason behind the success of the Jallikattu struggle.

Jallikattu is NOT Bullfight!

Jallikattu is NOT Bullfight!

PETA should stop equating Jallikattu to Bullfights !

Over 40,000 Bulls are killed every year in Spain alone !(As stated in website). And all this loss of life is just to enthrall tourists!

Bulls are NOT killed or tortured during Jallikattu in Tamilnadu.
Jallikattu is NOT Bullfight !

It is very unfair of PETA to compare Bullfights of Spain, Portugal and other countries to Jallikattu!

PETA is using Jallikattu as a soft target to score brownie points and create an image of its ‘achievements’ worldwide

Do they have the guts to show footage of the slaughterhouses of the Western world?

Do they have the guts to take on the leather and wool industry where hundreds of thousands of animals are slaughtered?

They only pay lip-service and do not oppose those vehemently as they do not want to antagonise MNCs and the highly powerful tourism industry of Spain, Portugal and other countries!

Why has PETA taken such an active interest in ONLY Jallikattu and not other forms of animal fights such as Bullfight (Bull against Bull) popular in North India, Bangladesh etc, Ram-fight that is popular in north India?

The obvious reason could be that they can compare ONLY Jallikattu to Spain’s bullfight. By scoring small ‘so called victories’, they can claim that they have ‘achieved’ success against ‘Bull Fight’ !

Do U think they will talk about the camel races of the Gulf world where they tie pre-teen kids to camel backs (mostly kids kidnapped from countries like India and Bangladesh)?

Do U think in the glorified Horse races happening all over the world, the Jockey ‘caresses’ the horses to run faster during a race? The Jockey kicks and beats the horse to run faster… Why don’t they oppose that? Is it because it is a game for the rich and influential while Jallikattu is a game of the middle class peasants?

PETA has been very unfair be equating Jallikattu with Bullfights!

Just see the video to see how Bullfight takes place! How can PETA equate Jallikattu with such horrific Bullfights?



Animal activists are biased against Jallikattu !

The so-called Animal Activists in India are creating such a big furore about Jallikattu which is actually a function to honour our Bulls and Youth !

They are targeting Tamils because we are soft people !

They should take up other causes such as this one given below!

See how the Western World makes Fur Coats! 

The follwing is a reproduction of an article from ‘FB- Animal Cruelty Exposed’

Looking at a fur coat in a glossy magazine or a store window, you might not realize that animals were beaten, electrocuted, or even skinned alive for their skin. Are you ready to find out what really happens in the name of fashion?

To kill the animals without damaging their fur, trappers usually strangle, beat, or stomp them to death. Animals on fur farms may be gassed, electrocuted, poisoned with strychnine, or have their necks snapped. These methods are not 100 percent effective and some animals “wake up” while being skinned.


It is the MNCs making money. So, THAT REAL CRUELTY is allowed! Let the animal activists try to fix that first!
