Abstract: Once again it is proved that no community of the universe will allow anybody to take away their natural rights from them. In this case, a suitable example would be the event of ‘Jallikattu’ which is observed in South India especially in Tamil Nadu. It has been such a movement which raised variety of questions within Indian society. Jallikattu is an identity- based movement. It is infact a new social movement with old tradition and practice of Tamil people. This identity-based movement brought two different aspects of emotion and values all together that is the clash between human rights and animal rights. Both these groups wanted to be victorious, but such path of victory is not so easy. As a result both the parties choose judiciary to save their rights or ideology. In this circumstance, the role of the state both national and regional comes to the forefront. Thus, to settle this crucial issue the role of politics or political intervention has been momentous.
