National Anthem not mandatory in cinema halls: Supreme Court


In a very sudden announcement, the Supreme Court today ruled out that it was not mandatory for cinema hall owners to play the national anthem before screening of a film. In November 2016, the Supreme Court passed a judgment to play the National Anthem in all cinema theatres throughout the country.

Playing compulsory National Anthem in cinema halls had led to a lot of debates with many feeling that the national anthem should be mandatorily played. A few viewers refused to stand and there were reports of them being heckled and attacked by fellow moviegoers. Then in a shocking incident, a wheelchair-bound man was abused in Guwahati for not standing during the National Anthem in a theatre.

But now in a relief for those against the compulsory playing of National Anthem, the Supreme Court accepted the Central Government's suggestion and today ruled that it was not mandatory for cinema hall owners to play the national anthem before screening of a film.
