    On what basis Supreme court had given different verdict between cock fight and Jalikatu?

    We all Knew that Sankranthi is celebrated in many parts of South India especially Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu and it is treated as a big festival as for entertainment the village people will do different entertainment activities in the form of playing games with animals in Andhra Pradesh Cockfight is most famous and in Tamil Nadu Jallikatu is famous these are traditional games.The recent supreme court orders to stop Jallikatu whereas the same supreme court told they are unable to stop the cockfight on what basis the supreme court had given different verdict where the common thing is same that is to protect safeguard or protect the animals from cruelty or brutality?

    We cannot draw parallel between Jallikattu and Cock fight. While Jallikattu is the form of inducing the bull and getting it irritated to start charging on the maddening crowd which electrifies the atmosphere and the bull is punished not performing as per the wish of the organizers. That means cruelty to the animal is meted out. The way bull made to charge on the barging crowd, it may hurt itself and hurt thousands who come on its way. Where as the cock fight is the challenge between the able and not so able cock. The cocks are trained in such a way that they would either injure the other opposite contender by having tied blades to their leges or make fearful expression to leave the arena. Both the form of sports are giving lots of pain and agony to the concerned animals. but the cock fight has been seen as the less effective injury to public and thus SC gave a nod to that effect.

    I think cock-fight must be stopped. Because Jallikattu does'nt necessarily hurt bulls!
    But in cock fights, these cocks fight to death. There's a lot of pain, gambling and humiliation going on. So cock-fights must be prohibited under all circumstances.
    In Jallikattu otherwise, the bull is followed by the mob and is restrained by the winner.
    It doesn't have any bloodshed in it.

    The stronger a light shines the darker are the shadows around it.

    Bloodshed or no blooshed, many influential and so-called modern people have become audacious enough to poke their ugly noses in the religious/cultural/ social affairs of the majority community in India. The people of the majority community must unitedly raise their voice against this tendency.
    Caution: Explosive. Handle with care.

    In my opinion both of them should be banned...
    A blunt knife or rusted knife can't be useful for anything just for the sake we call it as the knife similar to PayTM series or Sachin or Virat records.

    As far as I remember Cock fight also banned by SC. But it happens in AP after the ban.
    All the non veg restaurants should be banned before ban these sports. The people who are asking ban for these sports are the non veg and leather product lovers. Too much double standards... In one of the discussion of India today's conclave, KiranBedi talked against these sports, but didn't open her mouth when asked about why she is using leather belt and shoe.

    Thanks,
    Suresh.

    Animal X Animal = Okay (Cock fight) Dangerous to animals only. Doesn't matter.
    Human X Human = Okay (Boxing and Wrestling) Dangerous to human being only. Doesn't matter.
    Human x Animal = Not Okay (Jallikattu/Bull fight) It is dangerous to human as well as animals. Matters lot. Supreme court worries lot.

    Yes it should be banned. Because we have no rights to hurt any animal in any way. By this cock fight it will trained first with lot of difficulties and on the cock fight day one or the other cock will be badly injured so its better to stop cock fight. Not only cock fight there are many animal fights similar to this even that has to be banned.

    Though the Jallikattu is banned, it is played keeping aside the SC verdict as the people have shifted to those places where there are no bans. For example the Chittoor district abetting Tamil Nadu is agog with Jallikattu as the same was also played in Naravaripally in Chittooor district which happens to be the home town of AP CM Chandrababu Naidu. Likewise though the police have registered 1340 cases on cock fight and betting in AP, the organizers were even continuing the betting game even for fourth day and thus the court has been mocked in these places.
