Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday assured the Centres commitment towards Tamil Nadu and said all efforts were being made to realise the “cultural aspirations” of its people. “We are very proud of the rich culture of Tamil Nadu. All efforts are being made to fulfil the cultural aspirations of Tamil people,” Modi said on twitter.” Central government is fully committed to the progress of Tamil Nadu and will always work to ensure the state scales new avenues of progress,” he added.

Modi’s comments came in the wake of the Centre’s nod on Friday evening to Chief Minister O. Panneerselvam government’s ordinance to enable holding of Jallikattu, as the southern state saw continued massive protests in support of the bull-taming sport.

              Why ban only on ancient hindu cultural activities. Is it to appease cunning left liberals & Indian pressutes.

                                It is a little far fetched to call bull taming as a Tamil cultural aspiration. This sport is centred around a few villages near Madurai and does not strike a chord in most of TN. Most students. In their jeans and T shirts making a lot of noise perhaps have never been near a bull, much less tame it. All the brouhaha, to borrow an Americanism, is a lot of bull. I am Tamil and my cultural aspiration is software, computers, Mangalyaan etc., There are enough problems concerning cows and now bills are being brought into the equation! Only beneficiaries are fringe political outfits

                                    It is becoming a fashion statement to tarnish all animal related cultural activities as cruel. The presumption of elitism from unrelated people, who do not rear or take care of animals, is always wrong. The animals suffering or cruelty is palpably subjective; neither animals or owners complain. The celebrated PCA Act, Section 28, permits jallikattu, provided the bulls are killed after the jallikattu event, if it is declared as a religious practice. He who rears animals knows what is good for them.

                                      The ban on jallikattu is seen as an ault on the Tamil culture. The question of geographic spread of the sport is irrelevant, when the issue is taken as cultural attack. Ones love for culture cannot be criticised.

                                        My w hearted support to PM' s decision. Fulfilling 'traditional culture' is the wish of the people belong to every creed and cast and community of this nation. Those people who are making ' hue & cry' against ' jallikattu' are more or less the same people who protest ' Beef Ban' . My message to TN people to celebrate their culture with traditional glory because we have elected a ' Right ' government in the center.

                                            Modi Ji,Jalikatu sport is a test of endurance between both Human and Animal. There is nothong unethical when compared to the Bull fight in Spain where the Bull is subject to gruesome killing.All NGO are prejudiced.Let PETA ban The Bull fight in Spain.
