In My Opinion, National Anthem must be played in Cinema Hall, it's a symbol of our love towards our nation. We Play National Anthem in our Schools if that's ok then what's the problem with playing it in cinema halls, it just only takes 52 seconds, we went there for spending 2 or 3 hours so I think there is no problem with playing National Anthem. We Should Stand Up and proudly hear National Anthem by raising our heads and Singing it loudly and Proudly.

Hi everyone, I support that National Anthem should be played in theatres because;

1. We should show a little respect for our country just for 52seconds.

2. Why can't we play?

3. We have temples for devotion, but we don't have a place to show patriotism. No one found that so, it is being played where different community exists.

4. We should remember soldiers are sacrificing their lives.

5. It's not just a song, but it's a feeling.

6. It's not about the place, it's about the feeling and respect. Whether it is entertainment places or stadiums.

7. If you say that we are disrespecting in other ways like - flags are dumped somewhere, we should not spoil it, etc, its the problem of an individual the court should keep rules or punishments or fines for dumping flags, ignoring national anthem, etc,

8. The court gave an order regarding nobody stood during the national anthem being played and disrespecting, the court has made it mandatory to play the national anthem before starting any movie.

9. People who are sitting felt shame by watching the standing people.

10. We should not move during jana gana mana.

11. Children follow adults, so, if adults stand and respect then children will imitate them.

12. When you cannot stand for yourself, then how can soldiers or navy stand for you.

13. There is no rule to do not play the national anthem when the people are showing patriotism.

There are certain rules and regulations to when and where the National anthem should be played.

Exactly the way there are rules in when and where the National Flag should be hoisted. Playing it whenever and wherever we want is not allowed. Even the prime minister of the country is not greeted with the national anthem before or after his speech, this honour is only for the president and the Governor only. The National anthem can be played when receiving a national flag as honour (by a martyred soldier's kin or parents or wife). People don't know the value of these things. You see National Flag being sold on roadsides. Flags are hoisted on road corners where it is drenched in dust and rain. Many of us don't know that National Flag should not be hoisted after 6 pm. If it rains we need to remove the flag to protect it from getting spoilt.

I strongly oppose National Anthem being played in Cinema halls and after a certain time.

Some people say it is respect for Nation. But by finding these we are actually disrespecting the nation itself.

Yes, the national anthem should be played. I came in front to some viewpoints saying the national anthem should not be played in cinema halls because it's a place of entertainment, well then there should be a particular area for a person to get respected and some places not. What I am trying to say is if we want to respect everywhere we go why can't we give respect to our country, to our flag, to our nation, to our soldiers which is providing us with the freedom and opportunity to enjoy everything and that's also just for 52 seconds whereas we are going to enjoy for the next 2 to 3 hours.

Yes, it should be played in cinema halls because it's a little step that we are taking for our nation.

No from my point of view, the National anthem is our nation. It has to play in the open sky. And depend on the movie also if the movie is released of the Indian armies such as Shershah LOC Kargil or Surya the soldier. These movies are part of the Indian army. With respect of the Indian army, we can play the national anthem. But in other movies, we don't need to play.

Hello everyone.

I think that national anthem should not be played on cinema halls. As we know that people with different types of nature come to these cinema halls, some of them are renowned, intelligent and they know the value of national anthem. On the other hand some of them are irrational, arrogant and feel their disrespect on standing while national anthem is being played. Now these second category's people, neither they stand up for national anthem nor they sung it, even they make joke of the people of first category i.e. renowned intelligent and patriotic people.

Sometimes this causes quarrel in cinema halls, and many times fight also between these two category people.

I am not in opposition of national anthem but I am in opposition of disrespect of national anthem.

If national anthem is to be played on cinema halls, there should be proper management, guards to stop quarrels and to make everyone stand up while national anthem is being played.

Thank you.

Yeah, and it should also be played before entering in a water park, mall, restaurant, public park etc. Soldiers are sacrificing their lives each day, but what are you doing for their sacrifice? You think you stand up in a cinema hall and your duty ends?

As per my opinion, I want to say something about the National Anthem. The national anthem should be played in cinema halls but many people go to in the cinema hall from many works. The Cinema hall is not just a hall but hear, many shops in around and many places for playing the game. So if we play the national anthem then many people hear it but not feel this moment because he busy with his work. So according to me, it should play one day in a weak so all people can attract this national anthem and feeling it and he will remember our soldiers which sacrifice for our nation.

Thank you.

In my opinion, National Anthem should be played in Cinema Halls. It is not just a song it is a feeling, an emotion. Some people say that it should not be sung in cinema halls as the atmosphere of cinema halls is entertaining and joyous so I just have a simple question for those people -- When you cannot stand for yourself, how do you expect others especially soldiers to stand for us? Why do we hesitate to sing National Anthem at cinema halls because soldiers do not hesitate while sacrificing themselves for us?

It hurts when people make excuses for not singing the national anthem. Well, we learn from what we see and when children watch other people singing National Anthem they imitate them. If it is bad then we should stop singing the national anthem in cinema halls. One more aspect is that it is not our daily schedule to sing the national anthem, after our schooling we don't really bother to sing it but where we get the opportunity at least there we can give our best.

To the people who say the national anthem doesn't fit in cinema halls, I would like to say it is not the place which matters it is our feelings which matters the most. When you say God is everywhere, why can't patriotism be everywhere? (Don't say we go to temples to worship gods, have you made anything where we can go and sing the national anthem?).
