National Anthem will be optional at Cinema hall : The Supreme Court

Admin | Update: 09/01/2018

Supreme Court of India had guided that, its optional to run National Anthem before every Movie show, which was earlier is compulsory. Now onward there will be no compulsion to play National Anthem in theater, But if Nation anthem is started by theater then everyone need to stand in respect of National Anthem, Said by The Supreme Court of India.

Whereas Supreme Court said, handicaps peoples need not to stand if they are not comfortable. Mr S. N Choksey from Madhya Pradesh file the petition in court on 30th Nov 2016, As Cinema Hall are playing National Anthem before movie and every one should stand in respect of National Anthem. So later on in this petition the beach headed by Justice Dipak Mishra had said, "We have so directed as attorney general Mukul Rohatgi submits with all humility at his command and recommends that the National Anthem has to be respected."

The directions are issued for love and respect for the motherland is reflected when one shows respect to the National Anthem as well as to the National flag. That apart, it would instil the feeling within one a sense of committed patriotism and nationalism." But at same time one of the justice from above said bench justice Dhananjay Chandrachud is not with the judgment. Central Government also welcome the Judgment of the Supreme court and make it compulsory to play and stand in respect of our National Anthem.

But after a year, there was a change of attorney general, with K K Venugopal succeeding Mukul Rohatgi. Who altered perception at the Centre, which filed an affidavit requesting the court to make playing of the national anthem optional in cinema halls.

Venugopal requested a bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud to modify the 2016 order by replacing "shall" with "may". Wheras the Centre had constituted a 12-member inter-ministerial committee to consider all aspects related to singing and screening of the national anthem.

Late on, The Supreme Court disposed of the petition and said its order making the National Anthem optional would remain in operation till 12 member Inter Ministerial committee submit the recommendations. It is not clear what effect the order making the national anthem optional will have in Maharashtra and Chhattisgarh, the two states which had issued notifications prior to November 30, 2016, making it mandatory for cinema halls to play the anthem before screening a film.
