Gautam Gambhir, an Indian cricketer, recently became a part of the ongoing debate on whether the National Anthem should be played in movie theaters before the movie starts or not.
There are people who think that playing the National Anthem is a must and some think otherwise. The remarks by Supreme Court judge Justice D Y Chandrachud over playing the national anthem before the start of a film once again triggered a debate.
Gautam Gambhir too joined the debate when he tweeted “Standin n waitin outsid a club:20 mins.Standin n waitin outsid favourite restaurant 30 mins.Standin for national anthem: 52 secs. Tough?”

U are 100% right
But it's not about standing for national anthem.
No one can ask anyone to prove their patriotism.

No one Compelled you to stand outside restaurant.
No one Compelled you to stand outside a club.
But National Anthem is being Imposed upon.

Standing outside the club: personal choice.
Standing outside fav restaurant: personal choice.
Standing for anthem : personal choice.
