Take call on playing national anthem in cinema, SC tells Centre

The Supreme Court on Monday asked the Centre to take a call on regulating the playing and singing of the national anthem in public places including cinema halls.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra said it was needless to say that the Centre will have full discretion in the matter.

The court said that while taking a decision, the government will not be influenced by the apex court’s 2016 order wherein playing of the national anthem in cinema halls was made mandatory.
