Supreme Court directs cinemas to play National Anthem before film screening

The Supreme Court ordered today- “The National Anthem must be played in all cinema halls across the country before a film is screened and everyone present must stand to pay respect to it“.


People now-a-days don’t know how to sing national anthem and people must be taught. We must respect national anthem“, the top court said.

The apex court also said- “along with the anthem the national flag should also be show on the movie screen“.

Further, the SC said- “the National Anthem must not be played on entertainment TV shows as it cannot be commercially exploited. There should not be any dramatisation while singing and playing the national anthem either. The anthem must not be printed on an undesirable place either“.

10 days have been given to Centre and States to implement the court’s order.
