NEXT STORY Jallikattu: Actors say time to end protests, trash violence

CHENNAI: With the pro-Jallikattu stir in Chennai degenerating into extensive violence on its seventh day and the state appearing to have lost the plot, several actors on Monday appealed for peace and calm and urged protesters to halt the demonstrations.

Superstar Rajinikanth posted a statement via his Twitter handle in which he urged protesters not to allow anti-social elements to capitalise on their struggle.

Asking them to call off the agitation, he said the victory of peaceful and disciplined protests against the ban on Jallikattu by students, youth, women and all sections of Tamil people, which earned widespread attention and appreciation.

Actor Kamal Haasan, who has been vocal in his support for Jallikattu and the protests, tweeted: "This is a mistake. Aggressive police action on students' passive resistance will not bear good results."
