Indians bash High Court for allowing national anthem before movies

India’s Supreme Court has finally passed the order that it is a must for the theaters and cinemas to play national anthem before the screening of the films. Additionally, the bench of judges have ruled that the order must be enforced within 10 days and it is mandatory for the audiences to stand when the anthem is played.

Previously, in the 1960s and 1970s, it was compulsory for Indian cinemas to play the anthem, however, the practice declined soon after.

“The people should stop following individual notions of freedom and have a sense of committed patriotism,” Indian media reports quoted judges as saying.

While, this move is applaudable that the Indian High Court has finally taken a stand, people all across the India are going bonkers over the new law. It cannot be surmised that how and why Indian residents are criticizing the move. How can the respect for national anthem be undermined with such pathetic remarks and words? When you can sit through movies of three hours, happily, how come an anthem of a minute or two is disturbing or useless display of patriotism to you?

In this regard, Pakistan has been lucky that no laws had to be imposed over the populace and the cinema owners, as we already have respect and honour for our anthem. We know that standing for national anthem won’t be degrading in any sort. At least, this is the thing Indians need to learn from us!

Here is the country’s reaction over the newly passed law;
