The Honourable Supreme Court of India has given a decision
“All the cinema halls in India shall play the national anthem before the feature film starts and all present in the hall are obliged to stand up to show respect to the national anthem” as a part of their “sacred obligation”. Discarding notions of “any different notion or the perception of individual rights”, a bench of Justices Dipak Misra and Amitava Roy added that the movie screen shall have the image of the national flag when the anthem is being played and that doors of the halls will remain shut during the anthem so that no disturbance is caused.”
I have respect for National Anthem and when it is played I stand up in honour and sing the National Anthem too.
But a question that enters my mind is there are public places other than cinema halls such as Government Offices, Marriage Halls , Parks, Stockport Exchange etc where the restriction could be done
