On National Anthem In Cinema Halls, Panel To Hold 1st Meet On January 19
"In the name of entertainment, the National Anthem somewhere compromised its dignity, I respect the decision of the Supreme Court, because this decision will honor the National Anthem".
Lawyer Abhinav Shrivastava, who had petitioned the court on behalf of a nongovernmental organization, said judges had accepted submissions that playing the anthem "Jana Gana Mana" should no longer be enforced. "Playing of the anthem is directive, but showing respect is mandatory", Chief Justice Misra orally observed. In year 2003, MPHC banned screening of the movie, which was set aside by Supreme Court. It was also stated that the audience must stand up during the national anthem to pay respect. No one talks about that.
The modification will be in place till the Union government takes a final decision on the recommendations of an inter-ministerial committee on the occasions, circumstances and events for the solemn rendering of the national anthem.
When asked about his upcoming film, "Mukkabaaz", the producer said that the movie revolves around a love story of a boxer, who wanted to play but couldn't cross district-level due to various circumstances.
He said whenever the central government issued any notification to seek public's opinion and suggestions in this regard he would make a representation as to why playing of national anthem in cinema halls should be made mandatory.
The Supreme Court on Tuesday modified its November 30, 2016 interim order and made it optional for cinema halls to play the 52-second national anthem before every show.
Indian cinemas are free to decide if they want to play the national anthem before film screenings, according to a revised ruling by the country's Supreme Court. It had acted on a PIL filed by Shyam Narayan Chowksy.
