Music composer Hip Hop Adhi associated with the raging pro-Jallikattu protests announced backing out of the agitation citing the presence of anti-national elements, but vowed to back the bull-taming sport.
Adhi claimed that the movement was losing steam and veering off its desired path. He claimed that during the protests at Coimbatore, he had come across an incident involving an insult to the national flag even as some tried to give a communal colour to it.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi was the target of abusive language by a section of the protesters, Adhi, a prominent name among the pro-Jallikattu protesters, alleged.
I will not aid such anti-India activities, the composer of the Takaru Takaru song said in a video message, adding that some protesters even raised separate Tamil Nadu slogans. Adhi said he was hurt by such incidents and insisted that a good initiative was losing direction.
