Since 08th Nov’16, Indians are standing in queues at banks and ATM machines for cash withdrawals, now this standing is continued in cinema halls for all moviegoers. With reference to the article in The Guardian says that, there has been already a practice to play National Anthem in the cinema halls in India after India-China world war happened in 1962 but, the National Anthem was played at the end of the movies. Since the moviegoers used to ignore the national anthem as it was played at last of the cinema, the practice was slowly washed-out and was out-of-date.


A person on Twitter social media platform has recommended that pirated internet torrents should also now come up with a “national anthem file attached” to their uploads and some other person wrote that food vendors in cinemas halls must exclaim “Bharat Mata ki jai” or “Hail Mother India,” when serving popcorn.

The bench has directed that the order must be implemented with effect in 10 days.
