Giving a funny analogy for Jallikattu ban, Sadhguru said that it is like banning cricket for being dangerous. “You are running at 150 km per hour and a missile is coming at you. It is dangerous,” he exclaims. “Don’t judge the sport from Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli who can hit every ball that comes their way. If me and you stand there, we will get hit in no time,” the Yoga guru added. “If tomorrow you ban cricket, thousands will be on the streets protesting. This is what is happening with Jallikattu, please understand this,” he said.
Stop slaughter not the sport is what is Sadhguru (Jaggi Vasudev) saying on the issue of Supreme Court ban on Jallikattu. His words are backing what a large number of youth of Tamil Nadu reiterated on the streets on Tamil Nadu.
