The Centre notification allowing Jallikattu in Tamil Nadu this year has been challenged by the Animal Welfare Association.
"How can you nullify the SC judgement, which sets aside the performance of Jallikattu in Tamil Nadu and all over India because the 2011 notification of the SC prohibits the animals, including bull, being used as performance bulls," G.S. Mani, a lawyer said.
Additional Solicitor General P.S. Narsimhan represented the government during the hearing in this case.
The apex court had in its earlier judgement discouraged conducting the Jallikattu festival while stating that the sport can be played only if it does not hurt the bulls or inflict any sort of pain upon them.
The matter will be next heard on December 7.
