Trisha’s mother Uma Krishnan has said that while it was true that Trisha supports various endeavours made by People for Ethnic Treatment of Animals (PETA), she certainly doesn’t ailing with the body in its stance against holding Jallikkattu.
Tamils in the State have been opposing Trisha, who aligned with PETA in the past in her apparent effort to rescue stray dogs. As PETA’s case with the Supreme Court has played spoilsport in holding Jallikkattu in the State for the third year in a row, people have vented their anger on Trisha for her links with PETA. Her Twitter account was hacked and the shoot of her upcoming film was disrupted in Karaikudi.
Commenting on the issue, Trisha’s mother Uma told newsmen that it was indeed true that Trisha supported PETA’s ventures as she wanted people not to adopt foreign dogs but to bring up stray dogs within the country. “Right from her school days, she has been voicing this opinion. She didn’t say a single word against Jallikkattu through PETA but has been rendering whatever services she could offer for the dogs.
“We too are Tamils and how come we don’t feel bad about the continuing ban on Jallikkattu? For the past 6-7 years, Trisha hasn’t been finding time to involve herself in any activity PETA has been conducting. Trisha didn’t say anything on Twitter against Jallikkattu as her account was hacked and some objectionable postings were posted,” Uma clarified.
