National Anthem To Be Stopped Playing Inside The Cinema Halls?

If movie halls must compulsorily play the national anthem, why, Justice Chandrachud asked, should it not be played at "drama and other public places?"

The judge indicated that it was for the government to take the call on whether it wants the Flag Code to be amended to make it mandatory for cinema halls to play the anthem. The arrests were made based on a Supreme Court order of November 30, 2016. The order came with additional caveats such as everyone present in the hall must rise and "pay respect" to the National Anthem.

People go to cinemas for entertainment. Earlier this year, a wheelchair-bound disability rights activist was allegedly heckled and called a Pakistani at a movie multiplex in Guwahati as he couldn't stand when the national anthem was played before the show began.

"Usually, when people go to a cinema hall, they are going there for a very different goal".

Despite the in-built criticism of the mandatory nature of the earlier national anthem order, the SC bench stopped short of striking it down.

Supreme Court was declared that patriotism can not be forced through court orders and that whether or not a person stand for the Anthem can not be used as a measure of patriotism.

"What stops you from exercising your power". On October 23, however, while hearing a petition by a film society against the 2016 judgement, Justice D.Y. Chandrachud asked: "Why do people have to wear their patriotism on their sleeve?" Article 51A is not enforceable. By passing the buck to the government, the SC in a way reminded one of its 2013 order on Section 377, in which case too it said that the government must legislate.

People can not be forced to carry patriotism on their sleeves and courts can not infuse patriotism among people through its ruling.

However, Venugopal said the government would take a call. "Nowadays, anthem is played during matches, tournaments and even Olympics where half of the crowd does not understand its meaning", Justice Chandrachud said. "It's wrong to give anyone the badge of anti-national or "unpatriotic" as he is unwilling to stand for the national anthem". Will it amend the Flag Code by January 9, 2018 and strengthen its nationalism narrative?

The court must, indeed, modify its 2016 order.
