National Anthem & National Song Stand On Same Level, Claims Centre

New Delhi: The Centre told the Delhi High Court that the National Anthem of India ‘Jana Gana Mana’ and National Song ‘Vande Mataram’ both should get equal status as both these ‘stand on the same level’. So, the way Indians value and respect the national anthem, equal respect and dignity should be given to the national song.

“Both Jana Gana Mana and Vande Mataram stand on the same level and every citizen of the country should show equal respect to both. National song occupies a unique and special place in the emotions and psyche of the people of India,” the “short counter affidavit” filed via Central government lawyer Manish Mohan said.

Incidentally, it is certain that India’s National Anthem is given the same respect and dignity as the National Song. The public interest litigation was filed by lawyer Ashwini Kumar Upadhyay.

The centre presented its statement with an affidavit in the high court. The Ministry of Home Affairs made the statement on behalf of the government. According to the Centre, both the National Anthem and the National Song have their own sanctity and both are equal.

However, it can never be the subject of a writ petition. Lawyer Manish Mohan asked the court on behalf of the centre. The matter was brought to the notice of the Supreme Court, but there is no mention of National Song in the Constitution of India.
