Supreme Court had banned conducting jallikattu in 2014 and further struck down the Act passed by the State government. The protestors upheld banners and posters and raised slogans against PETA, demanding government to act on their demands.

The importance of resuming the sport, after it was banned by a 2014 Supreme Court order there is no similarity between the Spanish sport of bull fighting and jallikattu. In Spanish sport of bull fighting the bulls were harmed and killed in the sport festival in Spain but the bulls are treated like gods in Tamil Nadu.
