Delhi: Supreme Court said that the National Anthem not mandatory heard before the film cinemas screening in across the country.
On November 30, 2016, the Supreme Court issued a direct order that viewers should stand up to the national anthem.
AIMIM (All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen) president Asaduddin Owaisi welcomed the Supreme Court order which made the playing of the national anthem in cinema halls before the screening of movies optional.
The question was raised whether or not the volunteers who are watching the film will stand up. Subsequently, the Supreme Court issued a directive to set up a Central Government Command in the matter and make necessary provisions.
The petition was filed by the Ministry of Home Affairs yesterday on the Supreme Court’s order.
The committee’s report requires more than 6 months to file a report because it has to consider various aspects of the creation of new rules of the national anthem at the cinema theatre. Therefore, the request for the change of the national anthem was mandatory for the Central Government.
The trial of the case was held in Supreme Court yesterday by Chief Justice Deepak Mishra, Judges AM Kanwalakar and T.Chandruddhit. Attorney General KK Venugopal appearing in the Central Government will submit a report in the 6th month. So he requested that the Supreme Court order be revised.
