In its order, the court had meticulously gone into the issue of culture and tradition, ruling that the sport was inherently cruel in nature and that culture or tradition could not be a reason to allow practices which unnecessarily inflict cruelty on animals for human pleasure. #India #Supreme Court #Q&A #Jallikattu #Animal Welfare Board of India #Bull taming #Union Ministry of Environment and Forest #Bull fighting #cruelty against animals

Seventh Pay Panel blunts IAS Edge: But the IAS still gets to decide whether to accept or junk the plan
