उत्तर भारतीयों की जानकारी के लिये जल्लीकट्टू पर विशेष.
हम सभी जानते हैं कि हमारी अधिकतर परंपराओं के पीछे कुछ न कुछ ठोस कारण अवश्य हैं, वैसे ही जल्लीकट्टू परंपरा देशी गौवंश के उन्नत सरंक्षण हेतु है. देशी गाय की प्राजतियों में ए-2 प्रोटीन होता है, जोकि माता के दूध के समान है.
जल्लीकट्टू का वास्तविक उद्देश्य प्रत्येक गाँव में एक उन्नत प्रजाति के साँड का चुनाव करना है, ताकि गौवंश की उन्नत प्रजाति विकसित होती रहे. इसमें जिस सर्वश्रेष्ठ साँड का चुनाव होता है, उसे कोविल कालाई (मंदिर का साँड) कहते हैं एवं उसका पोषण मंदिर के संसाधनों से ही किया जाता है एवं वह आवश्यकता पड़ने पर ग्रामवासियों को नि:शुल्क उपलब्ध रहता है. जिस गाय के सबसे अधिक दूध होता है, उसी के बछ़ड़े को पवित्र नंदी मानकर कोविल कालाई के लिये तैयार किया जाता है. कोविल कालाई के चुनाव के पश्चात जो भी बछ्ड़े बचते हैं, उसे कृषक जुताई आदि अन्य कार्यों में ले लेते हैं. जल्लीकट्टू के प्रारंभ में सबसे पहले यही पवित्र कोविल कोलाई छोड़ा जाता है, जिसे कोई नहीं रोकता और लोग उसे हाथ जोड़कर नमस्कार करते हैं. उसके पश्चात अन्य साँड छोड़े जाते हैं, जिनमें से अगला कोविल कालाई चुनने की परंपरा है. अत: यह परंपरा में एक उन्नत प्रजाति का एक पवित्र साँड चुनने के लिये हैं, जिसमें अत्याचार का कोई स्थान ही नहीं है…..

The probe agency, which had in November last year registered a case against Naik and others under anti-terror law for allegedly promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, and doing acts prejudicial to maintenance of harmony, has found role of 23 entities including individuals and corporates linked to the preacher, NIA sources said on Thursday.

Besides this, 78 bank accounts in different banks of the country, are also being scanned. Once examination is done, we intend to summon Zakir Naik for questioning,” person aware of the news said.

It takes tremendous hypocritic conviction to fight for the "rights" of one animal and eat others. It seems, people opposed to Tamil Nadu’s ancient bullfight practice, popularly known as Jallikattu, have it in them – a lot of hypocrisy. Consider this: In November 2015, Ingrid Newkirk, animal rights activist and founder of the People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), appreciated Maharashtra government’s decision to impose a ban on cow slaughter.
