Constitution and laws of a country

18/01/2015

A country’s constitution and the laws should be based on the culture, traditions, beliefs etc. In a country where animal sacrifice is a custom during festivals, the laws of the country should not ban animal sacrifice. In the society in which jallikattu (subduing bulls) is a tradition, no laws and regulations should ban this. Values of other countries or what is considered good or bad by intellectuals, social activists etc. should not be imposed on the common people. Breaking cocunuts on the heads of the people, walking on the fire etc. during festivals are traditions of the people of Tamilnadu. ┬áSome people may consider these as dangerous but the solution is to station ambulances with first aid facilities at the sites and ┬ánot banning the same. Some tribal societies have special customs and traditions which to other people may be bad.. But there should be no interference with this.
