சல்லிக்கட்டிற்கு கிரேட்டர் ராச்சஸ்டரில் இணைந்த காளைகள்!

தமிழ்நாட்டில் சல்லிக்கட்டிற்கு தடை விதித்ததை அடுத்து சல்லிக்கட்டிற்கு ஆதரவாக கிரேட்டர் ராச்சஸ்டரில் வாழும் தமிழ் குடும்பங்கள் ரஸ்டிக் வில்லேஜ் அடுக்ககத்திலும், தொடர்ந்து வெட்டிரன்ஸ் மெமோரியல் பூங்காவிலும் ஒன்று சேர்ந்தது.

முன்னதாக நியூ யார்க்கில் உள்ள இந்திய தூதருக்கு ஆதரவு தாங்கிய மனு அஞ்சல் வழி அனுப்பப்பட்ட்து.  (கீழே கொடுத்துள்ளோம்)

Petition Draft Copy:


Indian Citizens living in Rochester NY

Honorable Ambassador Navtej Sarna,
Indian Embassy
Washington, DC

Respected Ambassador,

Reg: Lifting ban on Jallikattu / Eru Thazhuval (Bull Embracing)

We are Indian Citizens of Tamil Ethnicity living in Rochester NY. Back in our home, a 3000 year long traditional sport of Eru Thazhvual (Bull Embracing) has been banned by the Supreme Court of India. This sport has been conducted part of our Ethnic Festival Pongal for the past 3000 years. In this sport, Country Bulls are let out on a field and are embraced by players. The bull rarely gets hurt in this sport.

Citing some cruelty done to some of the bulls, Animal Welfare of India (AWI) and PETA – People for Ethical Treatment of Animals – have filed a case in Supreme Court for banning this sport and Supreme court banned it. This ban has put all of us Tamils in despair as we could not continue our tradition. The students and youth in India are protesting on the streets of Tamil Nadu requesting the Central Government to take an action to lift the ban.

The ban could be lifted if the Central Government passes an ordinance removing the bull from the list of animals that “shall not be exhibited or trained as a performing animal”. We, as law-abiding citizens of India urge the Central Government to take necessary steps to lift the ban on Jallikattu and protect our Tamil Identity and Tradition.

We thank you very much for considering this petition.

Thanks & Regards,
(Around 60 people signed)
