PIL in HC to treat Vande Mataram at par with Jana Gana Mana

Delhi High Court on Thursday sought the Centre’s response on a PIL seeking appropriate directions to treat the national song ‘Vande Mataram’ at par with the national anthem ‘Jana Gana Mana’. 

A Bench of Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice Sangita Dhingra Sehgal issued notice to the ministries of Home Affairs and Law and asked them to file “necessary response” before February 8, 2017 on the petition which seeks amendment in the National Honour Act 1971. 

The reply of the government was sought on Gautam R Morarka’s plea, who urged the bench that directions be given to the Centre in this regard so that proper dignity and respect could be maintained when ‘Vande Mataram’ is played or sung.
