Jallikattu - Defiance of judiciary lead to anarchy

Supreme court ordered Karnataka government to release certain quantity of Cauvery water to Tamil Nadu, which was defied by Karnataka government. Supreme court has earlier ordered that Jallikattu should not be conducted in Tamil Nadu and the case to review the order is still pending. However, in several places in Tamil Nadu , Jallikattu has been conducted defying the supreme Court order.

There have also been similar other instances of defiance of supreme Court order in the past in variety of ways.

Possibly, the main reason for such defiance of judiciary is that it does not anymore command the type of respect that it did earlier.

With supreme court judges refusing to have transparency in the appointment of judges , quite a number of judges having been caught on corruption charges or accused of being corrupt, some former judges like Katju questioning the Supreme Court orders, some of the controversial observations of the judges inside and outside the court premises, some judges sharing platform with those facing corruption and criminal charges , judiciary seems to be rapidly losing it’s pivotal position and lofty image that it once enjoyed.

In such circumstances, perspective seem to be developing among section of people that the order of judiciary need not be considered sacrosanct and can be defied if mass protest can be organized against the order.

So far, those who defy the court orders by threatening to disrupt law and order have got away and courts give an appearance of being helpless in tackling such defiance.

This is a very unhealthy situation and can lead to anarchy.

With the credibility of the politicians and bureaucrats being so low, people seem to think that in the present conditions, judiciary should rise up to the occasion and punish the culprits and ensure fair play. It is increasingly becoming doubtful whether judiciary is now cut out to play such role of remaining as a watch dog and conscience keeper of society.

In any case, even if some damage has been done to the reputation of judiciary in recent times, the judiciary’s verdict should be accepted unquestioningly by everyone to prevent a scenario of free for all.

madam kalavathi has correctly hit the nail. The crowd has already been indoctrinated to put a show against the ban. Nothing will go into the head of a non thinking crowd of educated, half educated,uneducated and illiterate. No one had idea about the consequences involved in a game which has no laid down rules to adopt, punishment for non observance and the dimension of the arena for the game. The crowd should realise at least now with the death of so many by bulls and the huge number of persons bruised and sometimes orthopedically disabled for life. more  
The media also has unnecessarily covered and glorified the episode of protesting for jalligattu. There are scores of people in Tamilnadu who question the protest for such a cause. There are so many troubles beseiging us, like water shortage, failed monsoon, farmers' distress, fisherfolk capture by Sri Lankan forces. People would have better appreciated focus on these larger issues. Many question the rationale of crowds of men all chasing a frightened and distressed bull trying its best to escape. Like Ganesh pandals the opportunity to mint money by holding jallikattu seems to be a motivator. The precedent is bad and questionable, and other states are also clamouring for holding races and fights which torture animals and birds. Instead of upholding our tradition of a peaceful nation that has harboured people of other nationalities fleeing from atrocities in their home countries, it is perverse to espouse the cause of so-called "Veera Vilayattu". What if the bulls ruled and put ropes in our nostrils and chilli powder in our eyes to madden us and then chased us to clamber all over us? What is supreme in the eyes of the Almighty, Ahimsa or Veera Vilayattu? Brutal games end up making our people thickskinned and society may become more brutal, than it already is. Can we withstand this? L.Kalavathi Retd. Bank Official Chennai, Tamilnadu, India 26th January, 2017 more  
Exactly to wash the hands and go hand free the state govt made an ordinance over ruling centre .I do not know to what extent this will helpful. If so why the centre last year made the ordinance. ALL doing mockery and fooling the people. Also pl analyse no party whether it is ruling or opposition cannot digest the way and victory of youth. By doing the wrong things again and again pelting stone with each other all the political parties joined together to create a frustration from students. It is ridiculous. more
