Entry no 17 of the Concurrent List of the Seventh Schedule of the Constitution is Prevention of Cruelty to animals. But there is another entry at entry no 58 in List Two of the States, which is Taxes on Animals. The state government of Tamil Nadu should immediately levy a tax on all the Jallikattu bulls and tell all those who claim that they are going to breed a bull for Jallikattu purposes only, should register those bulls and the tax should be nominal.
This would be on two grounds:
1. Preserving the culture of Tamil as mandated under Article 51A (f) of the constitution. (Based on historical proof in Tamil literature, and pre-independence scientific studies)
2. Even if the sport is prohibited, to preserve the hoary tradition, Pulikulam breed called as Jellicut breed by Capt. littlewood in his 1936 book called THE LIVESTOCK OF SOUTHERN INDIA, should be declared a Thamizh cultural breed connected with Thamizh. This would prove that there is a pre-independence scientific study by the Imperial Agricultural Research Institute, which validates the declarations to be made by the state government.
Once a legislation is made on this, one can take out and nullify the Notification issued by Jairam Ramesh and his cohorts!
Then Revival of Jallikattu would get validated.
I see no reason why, there are not enough chanakyas in TN to counter perverse PETA, PFA, HSI and AWBI through the legislative process!
Time to rescue Tamil Nadu from those sleepy and lazy states, spawning easy donation monies drawn through eliciting untruthful sympathies, based on one off cruelty inflicted by persons who had illtreated the bulls in Jallikattu!
Long live Thamizh!
