Massive protests in support of Jallikattu continued for the third day at Marina Beach in Chennai and other parts of Tamil Nadu, with hundreds more joining the agitation.

Agitations continued in various parts of the state, including Alanganallur, the usual hub of the Jallikattu event, with students and several others joining the stir.

On Thursday, Panneerselvam as well as AIADMK General Secretary VK Sasikala had reiterated their commitment to holding Jallikattu.

Sasikala had also assured that the government will move a resolution in the ensuing session of the Tamil Nadu Assembly and unanimously adopt it with the support of all parties in the House.

Vishwanathan Anand, A R Rahman and other celebrities also joined the protests to call off the ban.

We, at The Quint, had a look at the various arguments – for and against – that have been raised on Social Media.
