SC judges Misra, Roy soften slightly on national anthem: Disabled persons won’t have to stand but foreigners should

A Supreme Court of justices Dipak Misra and Amitava Roy, who had last month passed a controversial order purporting to make playing of the national anthem in cinemas obligatory, today said that cinema goers who were physically disabled would not have to stand but should show “conduct commensurate to respect”, according to Janta Ka Reporter.

When asked about whether foreign visitors to Kerala’s ongoing International Film Festival would also have to stand, Justice Roy declined to stay his and Misra’s earlier order, and apparently quipped: “Foreign delegates cannot rise five times during the film festival? I would say why not rise 20 times.”
