If jumbos can be paraded, why ban jallikattu, asks Kamal

Chennai: Actor Kamal Haasan alleged that the government is playing a double game on the Jallikattu ban in Tamil Nadu. Several people die every year in Kerala in elephant attacks, but they are still paraded in temple festivals. Jumbos are made to stand in scorching heat for hours on end and chenda melas and fireworks are held close to them. But they have not been banned; but jallikattu in Tamil Nadu alone is banned. Why is it so, he asked. There is no ban on animals being killed for food in the country. Kamal also pointed that hundreds of people die in accidents every hour.
