Slowly, the Telugu film industry is also supporting the Jallikattu protests happening in Tamilnadu. Already Mahesh Babu tweeted his opinion on this and has praised the spirit being showed by Tamilnadu. Now, it is the time for Power Star Pawan Kalyan. Pawan Kalyan also tweeted his stand on Jallikattu ban. Pawan also added his views regarding Cock Fightings ban.
Pawan Kalyan, tweeted, “Looking at the cows & roosters in my farm made me to think about the Ban of Jallikattu & Kodipandem in Dakshin Bharath. BAN on ‘Jallikattu’ & ‘Kodipandem’ by Govt of India is an Attack on Dravida Culture and its integrity; This is how it is being viewed in Dakshin Hindustan. I had observed this ‘deep hurt’ in people of ‘Dakshin Bharat’ while I was shooting in Pollachi (Tamilnadu) and during my political interactions in Andhra about the Ban of their respective cultural events in recent times. Govt of India, cited ‘Animal Cruelty’ as the reason for the ban of ‘Jallikattu and Kodipandem’ If we truly consider this puritanical approach then, we have to examine the statistics of Indian Beef export & Indian Poultry industry.”
India is the largest exporter of Beef in the world;2.4 million tonnes of Beef&Veal exported by India in 2015, where as Brazil and Australia could export only 2 And 1.5 million tonnes. And Beef exports fetches almost $5Billion with 14 percent growth rate every year. And interestingly, these top Beef exporting firms are owned by ‘HINDUS’ and not Muslims.
Imagine..How many Cows, Calves and Buffaloes should be slaughtered to get 2.4 million tonnes of Beef. How come this kind of slaughtering does not attract Animal Cruelty? just because we don’t see it !! Why the Animal cruelty act applied only to Jallikattu, where the animals getting injured or killed is insignificant when compared to the amount of animals that had to be slaughtered for business.
Kodipandem is the cultural identity of ‘Andhras’; if the Central Govt is serious about enforcing ‘Animal Cruelty Act’ then they should Ban ‘Poultry industry’ also; which produces around 8.4 lakhs tons of poultry meat by killing millions of chicken.
Somewhere we have to draw a line for this ‘Moralistic Madness’ in our Society; otherwise it would be very difficult to keep our Nation’s Integrity intact. Jana Sena urges Central Govt to lift the Ban on Jallikattu and Kodipandem. JAI HIND!!

Jana Sena chief and actor Pawan Kalyan tweeted on Friday that the ban sought to be imposed on Jallikattu amounted to an attack on Dravidian culture and its integrity. He expressed a similar view on the curbs put in place against cockfights.
Mr. Pawan Kalyan stated that he observed the sense of ‘deep hurt’ over the ban (on Jallikattu and cockfights) in the people of “Dakshin Bharat” during the shooting of a film at Pollachi in Tamil Nadu and political interactions in Andhra Pradesh.
He argued that if the ban on grounds of cruelty to animals was to be considered a puritanical approach, the statistics of Indian beef exports and poultry industry were to be examined.
Mr. Pawan Kalyan pointed out that the top beef exporting firms in India are owned by Hindus and not Muslims, and wondered how the large-scale slaughtering of cows, calves and buffaloes does not attract attention from the perspective of ‘animal cruelty’.
