Playing of national anthem in cinema halls not mandatory: Supreme Court


Neighbourhood News Desk/Avi Arya: On Tuesday Supreme Court(S.C) had revoked its order on mandatory playing of national anthem before movie screenings in cinema halls after multiple instances of vigilante patriotism.

Attorney general K.K.Venugopal said the Centre has constituted a 12-member inter-ministerial group to study and suggest possible changes in the Insult to National Honour Act, 1971 for incorporating measures to enhance respect for the national anthem. The inter-ministerial committee will take at least six months to study all aspects relating to signing and screening of national anthem and manner of respect and give recommendations to the Centre.
