National Anthem

There it is once again, to stand or not to stand? To reason and judge accordingly or to draw futile comparisons to the soldiers at the borders? The Supreme Court’s recent judgement about the National Anthem has sent Twitter into a tizzy!

While there are some who argue that the cinema hall is perhaps not the best choice to play the National Anthem at, some hardliners and nationalists are adamant that the National Anthem, played no matter when and where, should be treated with respect, i.e. standing up.

While it is difficult to take sides on trivial issues such as nationalism, food choices, inter caste marriage and dating, bursting crackers and many more, Twitter hardly ever stays mum about these topics. Check out who said what about the National Anthem row.

Here are the Twitter users who feel that standing up for the National Anthem, no matter where it is played, should be mandatory.

and then there were people who believe in respecting the National Anthem, but question why standing up for it should be forced, or why is it being played in the cinema halls?
