No one Compelled you to stand outside a club.
But National Anthem is being Imposed upon.
Standing outside the club: personal choice.— Aadesh Chaudhary (@fightadeshfight) October 27, 2017
Standing outside fav restaurant: personal choice.
Standing for anthem : personal choice.
I agree he/she should. But you can't force it. I know I will always stand for it. Because I want to. But I cannot force it on others. Simple— Roache Material (@gunsandroches) October 27, 2017
But many came out in support as well, saying standing for the national anthem is a duty for every citizen.
So you are forced? It doesn’t come out of respect? You can get up to do things according to your convince but not stand for 52 secs— Team Gautam Gambhir (@GautamGambhir97) October 27, 2017
