Vande Mataram is merely a national song and should not be confused with the National Anthem. There is no compulsion on singing of it as per the Supreme Court’s orders. It is an individual’s decision. Any compulsions will be liable for contempt of court. Why does the BJP work on ‘sentiments of the majority’ rather than the rule of law? Why are the Uttar Pradesh government and the Central government not intervening to uphold rule of law of the country?
