Arvind Swami talks about the Jallikattu protests

After a series of changes in the last few hours in the Jallikattu protests, Arvind Swami has made a series of tweets registering his thoughts about this issue.

He tweeted, "What is this'permanent solution'that is being demanded? I am unable to understand...can someone pl explain for my understanding?#jallikattu. Pl understand that there is nothing like a 'permanent law'.Even an ordinance or amendment can be challenged in a court of law. Seeing statements of people on TV who seem to have a different understanding of how the legal system works in this country. # misleading. Expect Any amendment to be challenged. Therefore, conduct the event in a safe way so that you can use it as an example in court in defence.

If the event is not conducted in a safe way for the people and the bulls, we cannot expect a positive legal outcome in the future. The only way to keep the 
sport permanent is to provide for the safe conduct of the event. Hope we can focus on that. Be open to evolve it. If we don't focus on keeping the event safe for the people and the animal, pl remember that everything will be challenged.Speaking the truth"
