National anthem not mandatory in cinema halls: Supreme Court

Published on :9 Jan,2018 By :- UNT News Desk


New Delhi:

The Supreme Court modified its earlier ruling and ordered that it is no longer mandatory for cinema halls to play the national anthem at the beginning of every movie. The SC had in November 2016 made it mandatory for cinema halls to play the anthem.


The SC, however, clarified that in case a cinema hall plays the national anthem before the screening of any film, it is the duty of every citizen to stand except the disabled persons. 


The modified order comes after the Centre on Monday told the Supreme Court that it may not be necessary to play national anthem in cinema halls and told the court that an Inter-Ministerial Committee has been set-up to frame new guidelines on the issue.
