A request to Tamilnadu government: Mark “Jallikattu Protest” as "Tamizhar Ezhuchi Naal”

This petition had 192 supporters

Jallikattu protest is a turning point in Indian history! A humble and yet the most powerful revolution the modern world has witnessed! We should mark this event as a "Tamizhar Ezhuchi Dhinam” to celebrate the strength in humility and pride in tamil culture.

It was a unprecedented gathering of students, families and children in millions at several parts of the state without any leader, unaffiliated to any political party and solely coordinated by social media posts. It was only the cultural spirit that ignited a sense of revolution to protest against the ban on jallikattu. This protest prompted state government to request a ordinance from central government against and ban and was followed up with a state government law protecting jallikattu. The revelations of this protest spanned across the issue of jallikattu and created an overall awareness on local traditions, cultural heritage and importance of indigenous resources.

We should all sign a petition to the state government to declare a day (e.g. Jan 20) to mark this extraordinary revolution. Lets mark and celebrate this day.
