No Need To Stand, 'Tamil Thai Vaazhthu' Not Anthem: Madras HC

The Madras High Court said 'Tamil Thai Vaazhthu' was only a prayer song and not a National Anthem while quashing an FIR against ''Nam Tamilar Katchi'' (NTK) by the Rameswaram police in Ramanathapuram district in 2018. The Court also clarified that there is no need for everyone to stand up when it's rendered. Reportedly, there is also no statutory or executive order requiring the attendees to stand up.
