In another tweet he said, "The people who have been protesting so far must maintain dignity of their movement as a slight distraction from the movement might harm those who have been protesting in support of Jallikattu".
People at long last are getting a taste of true democracy. Gone are the days of leaders. We need humble pathfinders & social reformers

Also, condemning the Allanganallur incident, Hassan tweeted, "The recent violence in Allanganallur is a black mark in the history of non-violence".
Boasting of Tamil Nadu's history of stirring revolutions, he posted, "The manifesto for civil disobedience movement was drafted in Madras 1930. Again it is successfully enacted in TamilNadu 2017".

When jallikattu saw violence and death of two bull vaulters in Tamil Nadu, filmstar Kamal Hassan took on the PETA activists for opposing the traditional sport and getting it banned. In a tweet, Kamal Haasan said, "PETA go ban bull riding rodeos in Mr. Trump's U.S. You're not qualified to tackle our bulls. Empires have been made to quit India."
Earlier in the day, violence broke out in Chennai and a few other places in Tamil Nadu after police started evicting pro-Jallikattu protesters on Monday morning. A group of about 50 protesters set Ice House police station on fire. Around 15 bikes parked in front of the police station also went up in flames.
The protesters hurled stones at the police station, and at least 22 policemen were injured in the violence.
