The World Youth organization, a youth organization in Tamil Nadu on Saturday in Chennai protested against Supreme court's order to stay the ban on jallikattu. It also demanded a ban on PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) in India.

PETA was one of the organizations that filed a petition at the Supreme court after Central government allowed to conduct the bull taming sport.

Anbarasan, Secretary, World Youth Organization said, "Does PETA know about jallikattu, if they don't know about Jallikattu why do they request a ban against jallikattu?"

On January 12, 2016, Supreme Court had stayed the order to ban jallikattu in Tamil Nadu. The petition was filed by Animal Welfare Board of India, PETA India, two other NGOs and several individuals. 

Taking on the AWBI, BJP state president Tamilisai Soundarajan said, "Tamilians take care of their bulls like their own children and animal rights organizations say that we torture bulls. These people who haven't touched animals claim to be animal activists."
