Our decision to label this sport as 'cruel' is based on our contemporary understanding of ethics and moral values, which didn't widely exist in the past. Traditions may contradict who we are today, but they should be preserved as they define our past: who we were, and what we're our values. Attempting to erase the past or step on traditions is culturally insensitive, and will potentially lead to loss of respect for one's history and heritage. Therefore the sport shouldn't be banned.
