Mumbai, Dec 2 (Washington Bangla Radio): During the screening of a Deepika Padukone starrer Bollywood film, a family was seen disrespecting the national anthem which was shown before the start of the movie. This national anthem was the recently released film that shows heroes and martyrs of the 26/11 attack.

The family was later addressed by patrons and soon it turned in to an altercation that lead the management to intrude and calm matters. A video that has gone viral shows a man from the family hurling insults while the patrons are seen protesting their unreasonable behavior.

Although there is no acceptable excuse to disrespect the national anthem, such misconduct can result in punishment in the court of law. This is also a big insult to the heroes that made efforts to protect and help those affected by the gruesome 26/11 attacks. The makers of the video- Fadoo TV took 3 odd years to make this video possible. This deserves applause to bring forth the actual brave hearts of the day and celebrate them in public view.

It is unfortunate that we still see many opinionated citizens impart disrespect of this regard and further justify it.
