Animal welfare organizations and activists have been objecting to Jallikattu for a long time. Two organizations have been the most vocal in opposition to this sport. First, ‘People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals’ (PETA) and second, ‘Federation of India Animal Protection Agency’ (FIAPO). Together, these organizations had approached the Madras High Court in 2006 seeking a ban on Jallikattu. After a protracted legal battle, the matter reached the Supreme Court and on 7 May 2014, the country’s top court had banned the sport of Jallikattu considering the violent treatment of animals. Meanwhile, in the year 2011, a notification was also issued by the Central Government against Jallikattu, but it was implemented in the state with little to no effect. Although Jallikattu was not organized on the occasion of Pongal in the year 2015 after the order of the Supreme Court, but this year people became more emotional about organizing the game and turned to violence.
However, in order to stop the outrage of the mass gathering in support of Jallikattu not only in Marina beach of Chennai but across Tamil Nadu, the state government has issued an ordinance and after the consent of the Law Ministry has been sent to the President for approval. .
