On National Anthem In Cinema Halls, Panel To Hold 1st Meet On January 19
He continued to fight for the respect of the national anthem and collected more evidences that showed people disrespecting it.
Earlier, 30 November 2016, the SC had directed all cinema halls across India to play the national anthem before the beginning of any film. "The committee will give recommendations regarding regulations of playing and singing national anthem and to suggest changes in the acts and orders relating to the Insult of National Honour Act 1971", said the official.
It is no longer mandatory for cinemas to play the national anthem before every film show after the Supreme Court on Tuesday modified an earlier order and removed the compulsion.
Enumerating the relevant part of the 2012 order, the court said there were three things that these guidelines highlight - one, the national anthem is a salutation to motherhood, second, there can not be an exhaustive list of occasions and third, decorum must be maintained.
In November 2016, a Supreme Court bench led by Justice Dipak Misra, before his elevation as the Chief Justice of India, had made playing the National Anthem in cinema halls compulsory.

While few theatre owners say they will discontinue playing national anthem, others say they will play national song Vande Mataram.
Aware of the widespread criticism of the order, mainly because of the activities of vigilante groups in enforcing it, the three-judge bench readily accepted the AG's request on Tuesday, which in in sync with the loud hints the SC had dropped during a hearing on October 23 a year ago on a PIL filed by Shyam Narayan Chouksey. A year later the order faced criticism from within the court, with Justice Chandrachud asking if everyone "should wear our patriotism on our sleeves".
