The national anthem remains compulsory in all cinemas, the Supreme Court said today, while tweaking its earlier order to state that the theatre's doors should remain closed, but not bolted, till the play-out ends.

After Cinemas, Anthem Must In Court? Don't Stretch It, Says Supreme Court


After its widely-debated order to play the national anthem in cinemas with the doors shut, the Supreme Court today rejected a petition to make it a must in courts. "We are not inclined," the judges said.

On Wednesday, the court said citizens "are duty-bound to show respect to the national anthem which is the symbol of the constitutional patriotism" and ordered that the anthem be played before movie screenings.

National Anthem Must Play In Cinemas Before Film, Orders Supreme Court


According to the latest Supreme Court order, the national anthem should be played in theatres before all movie screenings mandatorily. Everyone should stand when the anthem is played and Indian national flag should also be shown on screen. When the national anthem is played it is imperative for everyone to show honour and respect to it, says the court.

It was a mandatory practice for cinema halls to play the national anthem after every movie during the 1960s but the practice slowly faded away by the 1990s.

In its proposals to the Steering Committee on Constitutional Reforms, the joint opposition (JO) has said the constitutional provisions on matters such as the National Flag (NF) and National Anthem (NA)and the status accorded to Buddhism should in no way be compromised.
