2016 12:05 am There is a logical connection in people’s minds about the “patriotic” BJP regime the hurried hearing and passage of the Supreme Court diktat on cinemas and the national anthem (Illustration by C R Sasikumar) Top News At the stroke of the noon hour on November 30 2016 India was shocked with less freedom India “awoke” to a Supreme Court diktat which comes but rarely in history Through possibly an unconstitutional judgment the SC forced India to step out from the old to the “new”; a new in which it was stated that “love and respect for the motherland” is reflected when one shows respect to the national anthem as well as to the national flag Invoking Article 51(A) Fundamental Duties occurring in Part IVA of the Constitution (incidentally introduced into the Constitution during Indira Gandhi’s Emergency) Justices Dipak Misra and Amitava Roy stated in their new world order that it “is clear as crystal that it is the sacred obligation of every citizen to abide by the ideals engrafted in the Constitution And one such ideal is to show respect for the National Anthem and the National Flag Be it stated a time has come the citizens of the country must realise that they live in a nation and are duty bound to show respect to the National Anthem which is the symbol of the Constitutional Patriotism and inherent national quality It does not allow any different notion or the perception of individual rights that have individually thought of have no space The idea is constitutionally impermissible” And how will constitutional patriotism be revealed “All the cinema halls in India shall play the National Anthem before the feature film starts and all present in the hall are obliged to stand up to show respect to the National Anthem” Continuing the judgment states that “When the National Anthem shall be played in the Cinema Halls it shall be with the National Flag on the screen ” It might appear that the senior judiciary in India does not have enough legal work on their hands For example the Supreme Court recently heard a petition seeking a ban on Sikh jokes and even set up a five-member panel headed by former Justice HS Bedi (himself ostensibly a fan of jokes including Sikh jokes — who isn’t) to study the issue and give “recommendations” Hah — a good joke If the Supreme Court can issue an order of a constitutional legal requirement — that all cinemas play the national anthem before the start of any and every film in the country — then possibly it will also rule that Sikh jokes are illegal Is it not an insult to the national anthem to treat it in such a cavalier manner that it is played in the halls of entertainment And while they are at it what is the considered view of the honourable Supreme Court about showing “respect” to the national anthem when one is watching a cricket match at home (Incidentally why the playing of the national anthem at a sports stadium) If that is considered an intrusion of privacy and a rejection of individual rights (thank God and thank the Supreme Court) then what about standing when the national anthem is being played in restaurants Will one be forced to stand up then If not why not And what about disrespect to the nation if one is eating while standing up Should one spit out the food instantly There is a logical connection in people’s minds about the “patriotic” BJP regime the hurried hearing and passage of the Supreme Court diktat on cinemas and the national anthem This is possibly a false connection — on many grounds First what has true patriotism got anything to do with standing up for the national anthem in cinemas Second there are three states that require the national anthem to be played in cinemas — Maharashtra Karnataka and Goa At the time of false patriotism dikat all the three states were ruled by parties currently in Opposition — the Congress in Karnataka and Goa the NCP in Maharashtra Does it make the standing up to be counted legislation any better (or worse) now that the Supreme Court has passed this law with the BJP at the Centre It is also quite surprising to see the extent of bi-partisan support for the standing up diktat Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari tweeted “Surprised at criticism of SC ruling on #national anthem If Indians will not stand in respect for their own anthem who else will — the Pakis” I am hoping that Tewari was being sarcastic and/or that this was a hacked statement Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi was deferential and approving in stating that he completely agreed with the need for specific guidelines to show respect and honour for national anthem and the flag (emphasis added) What the new law means is that movie-going will be reduced at least for patriotic film-buff Indians like me If I do go to the movies I will stand outside the theatre (I will be standing anyway so the Supreme Court should be pleased that people are faithfully following the law of the land) until the false patriotism has played itself out The Supreme Court order stated that all people present in the movie must rise and pay respect to the anthem So standing outside is okay I hope I believe our Constitution is in many respects outdated and has clauses from another era It is a Constitution that is about the power of the state and not the rights of individuals Nevertheless the Constitution is a lot more liberal than the interpretation placed on it by the Supreme Court justices Consider the following illiberal decisions of the court over the last five decades First that there be a legal requirement for education and job quotas for the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes But nowhere does the Constitution says that SCs and STs should get special treatment at the expense of other “socially and educationally backward classes of citizens” All backward classes are supposed to get equal treatment For example poor Muslims are equally deserving of special treatment as our poor Hindus or poor SCs or poor STs Second in the 1990s the SC allowed even more regressive strictures by requiring that OBCs be included in the net of reservations How many of you know that the C in OBC stands for class not caste Third in 1959 the Supreme Court allowed the killing of cows after they reached the age of 16 Why was this done Because it felt that resources were scarce and fodder was scarce so cows that are more than 16 years of age can be killed to make way for younger cows But a 2005 SC judgement (rarest of rare cases a seven-member bench and the Congress in power) reversed the 1959 judgement and said that cows and bulls could not be slaughtered and gave the following grounds for doing so: “It cannot be accepted that bulls and bullocks become useless after the age of 16 This is because till the end of their lives they yield excreta in the form of urine and dung… An old bullock gives 5 tonnes of dung and 343 pounds of urine in a year which can help in the manufacture of 20 cartloads of composed manure”The
