Gupta stated that a probe should be ordered into the alleged disrespect of the national anthem by students in Kashmir.
Irrespective of political ideologies, one should always respect National Anthems. Whether of India or any other nation. National Anthems do not belong to establishments, political parties, Leaders or to certain ideologies.
National Anthems belong to the people of that Nation. Not respecting a National Anthem does not convey a political message. On the contrary, it shows lack of political maturity while disrespecting the proud people of a respective Nation.
Ashok Gupta stated that an FIR should he registered against all the people who were not standing and the students who did this shameful act should be terminated from college and there degrees should be canceled.
He said that like China a law should be passed in the Parliment anyone disrespecting the national flag have to bear a 3 year Jail term and marking of this certain crime on there Aadhar number so that it carried a great deal of fear in the mind of the anti national. At last he said that our soldiers are laying there lives for the National Flag & Anthem and it is the optimum duty of every citizen to pay it respect and honour.
