For over one and half years, we have been struggling to get the ban on Jallikattu revoked. As the 2016 Pongal festival is fast approaching, the wily PETA has been actively lobbying to pressurise the Indian government from bringing in a special legislation to enable Jallikattu, Bailgada, Rekla etc. PETA is an American organisation that runs animal shelters in the USA. It is this very same PETA that was instrumental in getting a ban for Jallikattu.
As usual, PETA has started roping in celebrities like popular actors and cricketers. They have got Vidya Balan, John Abraham, Sonu Sood, Vidyut Jammwal, Sonakshi Sinha, Jacqueline Fernandez, Bipasha Basu, Raveena Tandon-Thadani, Shilpa Shetty Kundra, Kapil Sharma, Amy Jackson, Athiya Shetty and Richa Chadha. And cricketers like Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan to sign. Do these celebrities know that PETA kills thousands of puppies and kitten every year in the USA? Do they know that one of PETA's aims is that Man should not rear cattle anymore and that all cows should be sent off to the forests? Do these celebrities know that the Jallikattu bulls are being sent to the slaughter houses? Has any of them saved even a single Jallikattu bull? Do they know that hundreds of Hindu temples have not been able to conduct their annual festival because Jallikattu is believed to be mandatory for the conduct of festival? PETA is an enemy of farmers; enemy of Hindus; enemy of Tamils; enemy of all Indians; enemy of Indian solidarity! PETA should be banned from India.
It is not just Jallikattu that has been affected by the ban. Along with Jallikattu, Manjuvirattu, Eruthukattu, Rekla, Bullock cart race, horse cart race, Cock fight, Ram fight etc have been affected. Not just Tamilnadu, Kerala's Sethali, Maharashtra's Bailgada and such traditional cultural sports conducted all over India have been affected.
We hereby warn that we will boycott the movies, events, cricket matches of all the celebrities who sign the petition against Jallikattu, Rekla, Bailgada. We will not allow them to set foot in our soil, not just in Tamilnadu but all over India, till they withdraw their support to PETA and stop supporting PETA's atrocities.
Why are the North Indian Celebrities always taking an anti-tamil stand? We request all celebrities to come out and support Jallikattu openly.
We request all Jallikattu, Manjuvirattu, Eruthukattu, Rekla, Bullock cart race, horse cart race, Cock fight, Ram fight, Kerala's Sethali, Maharashtra's Bailgada and other cultural sports to condemn these celebrities on Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp, other social media and also in person.
