National anthem to play in all cinemas

National anthem to play in all cinemas, says Supreme Court

The Supreme Court ordered on Tuesday that as a part of their sacred obligation, all the cinema halls in India must 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.

The court stressed that while playing the national anthem, all exits will be shut during that time and everyone should rise for the anthem, with the national flag on the screen, since citizens are duty-bound to show reverence to the national anthem which is the symbol of the constitutional patriotism. Lawyers say, the movement of people in and out of the theater in the middle of the anthem is interpreted as lack of respect. The government has pledged to implement the rule in ten days.

The judges stated, the national anthem cannot be dramatized or commercially exploited, all should pay respect for flag, cannot print it on undesirable objects.

Cinema theaters traditionally played the anthem after the movie in the 1960s, but people were often seen walking out in the middle. The practice disappeared over the years, as multiplexes transformed movie-watching.
