Moh-Juj, or buffalo fights, are a traditional event in Assam, India, deeply rooted in cultural heritage. Recently, after a nine-year hiatus, these fights were revived as part of the Magh Bihu celebration in Ahotguri, Nagaon District. The revival comes with stringent Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) to ensure no physical harm to the animals. Introduced by Swargadeo Rudra Singha nearly two centuries ago, Moh-Juj plays a significant role in Assamese society. The Chief Minister of Assam, Himanta Biswa Sarma, along with animal welfare organizations like PETA, emphasize the delicate balance between preserving cultural traditions and ensuring animal welfare. The revival of Moh-Juj seeks to maintain this balance, highlighting the importance of cultural traditions while prioritizing animal welfare and safety.
