Anger can trigger a mob the wrong way. Think & act for yourself. Know your fight. Protect your right. Peace and non-violence are key! #TN— Siddharth (@Actor_Siddharth) January 23, 2017
Anyone trying to extract mileage out of this situation for other issues must stop now.This is the #Jallikattu movement. The people have won.— Siddharth (@Actor_Siddharth) January 23, 2017
Ordinance passed is not an ordinary achievement! Whoever instigates you to anger is not on your side. You are also a leader. Take the lead!— Siddharth (@Actor_Siddharth) January 23, 2017
When students were talking, some people started talking about irrelevant issues. I said, this has always been about jallikattu and nothing else. I have spoken at this place.. an asked the CM to take action. Now the CM has taken action and sure we should all hold campaigns for what we believe in. But remember there are students who need to go back to their studies.. Even children are here. You can't keep taking this on as it is slowly turning into something else. I understand people want to see a copy of the signed legislation, as signed by Governor.. But some people are talking totally irrelevant issues- Raghava Lawrence
Students started coming in droves. Lakhs of them. Our demand was simply to hold jallikattu. So we hav told govt we will fast for it. It wil be totally peaceful. All seven days we have done a great protest..All for jallikattu.. It was all under control until it was about students. I wasn't well yesterday and had gone to the hospital. When I got up at 6, sudden violence erupted this morning.. I left the hospital immediately without even informing the doctors. I wanted to tell students when I realized that the governor signed the ordinance. I told peopl we should celebrate. A 500 kg cake was ordered and since governor has signed, we know that the decision is here to stay.
A looming question. When the students were calmly waiting to see what decision the assembly takes , Why preempt with police action ?— Kamal Haasan (@ikamalhaasan) January 23, 2017

None can take away your rights. Pls. stay calm. The highest office in the country is watching & will talk in your favour soon. Maintain calm— Kamal Haasan (@ikamalhaasan) January 23, 2017
Balaji Patturaj, RJ to CNN-News18:
- We got what we wanted, its an example for the country. But whatever is happening from morning is not right.
- It’s a request, please do not do anything that hurts the students.
- Police was cooperative from so many days, they should end it in the same way. We never expected it to end in this way, we are hurt, every celebrity who supported the protest is hurt.
This is a mistake. Aggressive police action on students passive resistance will not bear good results.— Kamal Haasan (@ikamalhaasan) January 23, 2017
