I am actually dazed at the way some NGOs and then the activists act against the Indian Traditions, whereas they do hell lot of marketing of western culture to prompt Indian Youth to bank on Western Culture. Consider the way these Liberal Activists just stand in support of Valentines Day, Rose Day, Friendship Day etc when the western world isn't sure why to celebrate those days. Isn't that a strange case that most of the western celebrations are based on the lowly values carried with them and no logical base other than strong marketing by certain set of companies?
More so, with the recent turn of events, it has come out to be a big blow to some of the Indian traditions specifically with these rights activists leading to the doors of SC and getting verdict in their favor. They were successful in getting ban on #Jallikattu in Taminadu, Reduce the height for Dahi Handi events and may be a few others. They are even eyeing on getting a ban on may be crackers during Diwali and may be promote Wax candles than earthen lamps. Well, isn't that strange that both fire-crackers and earthen lamps production help many families run their livelihood. It is pretty much a foul attempt to let on Vehicular and Industrial pollution ruin our lungs and our health on the name of industrialization round the year and then seek ban on crackers that was used only for 5 days. It indeed is the irony of the case that puts me in dilemma on how a oil based earthen lamp causes more pollution than a wax lamp, when the oil based earthen lamp is more environmentally friendly than the wax lamp; in both cases be when it burns v/s when it is to be disposed.
There are may reasons where these so called activists stand up on certain ill attempted education with certainly NO base and logic. They use some Photoshopped images with their articles with no base and with no legitimate proof on what they say; in-effect there is none actually. The logic and the words used by them simply make me laugh at their naive attempt to serve the purpose of their masters.
Specifically coming to the #Jallikattu, it is a display of row power and highlight of the cattle breeding industry. This is something that aligns with the overall Cattle Industry and trade that keeps local healthy breeds in shape with regular rotation. This tradition has a scientific base of rotation to avoid inbreeding and ensure continuity of healthy cattle raising. A ban on this also calls for a ban on Pushkar Mela, the largest Cattle show / market on this planet (Yeah doesn't sound logical; yeah because it indeed is a illogical statement). However, these activists would come in support of Pushkar mela (may be not) siting that it is a Cattle Market not a celebration. However, if they ever stood against Pushkar Mela, they would have to bow down because that wouldn't be possible for them to sustain against in SC with their illogical demands. They succeeded in case of #Jallikattu because they could produce some gory Photoshoped images and the justice bench of SC didn't do any fact check.
Now coming to the role of SC in these judgements that delivered nothing but a blow to Indian traditions, I am appalled at the way they were even considered. SC could have defined certain conditions to be met for these traditional sports rather than banning them outright. Somewhere they played in the hands of these activists supporting the ulterior motive of some western manipulators. SC could have actually looked at the Tomatilo Festival of Spain that #Peta like organizations couldn't ban. More so, #Peta like organizations work as typical marketing companies for promoting certain vested interests of certain organizations. They live on double standards where killing the animals to eat meat is fine for them, but killing the same animal to get leather for shoes, jackets and belts is wrong.
I would actually call for a fact check by SC to ensure that they understand the true essence of the Traditional Indian sports before passing a judgement. They need to go out their to first witness the reality rather than passing a judgement on certain gory images and idiotic logic by the #Peta like marketing organizations.SC should stop encroaching with traditions specifically when they do not step in with other religious traditions. Just because an average Indian (or do I still need to specify HINDU) has a higher degree of patience, doesn't mean that other religions get liberty to do things on their whims and fancies for their festivals with even prayers broadcasted through loudspeakers; and the hindus' keep facing bans after bans that serve the ulterior motive of some organizations to eradicate Hinduism from this planet.....
Does that Ring Bell with SC?? and with those jokers acting to be activists??
