National anthem a 'must' in Madrasas, Allahabad HC orderAllahabad High Court has upheld the order of BJP led UP govt. to sing the national Anthem and hoist national flag in Madarsas in the satate on Independence day. Allahabad HC has said that National Anthem, flag should be respected by every Indian and should be a must even in Madrasas. We have to understand the meaning of this decision.
We see the result of appeasement politics of so called secular politicians ruling the state that the Madarsas dared to challenge this order and went to court. The court's order is in line with the spirit of the constitution. The fundamentalism should be dealt with stern hands.
Ironically, the mother organisation of BJP, RSS is also a Hindu fundamentalist organisation and has been opposing the National Flag and National Anthem since the Independence of the country. Patel, then Home Minister said any organisation seeking to supplant National Flag would be sternly dealt with. He imposed one of the conditions on the RSS for the removal of the ban after Mahatma Gandhi's assassination was explicit acceptance of the National Flag.
All fundamentalist organisations will learn a lesson from this decision. They have to respect the National Anthem and the National Flag if they are a part of this country. Please opine.
