Two Kashmiri youths have been arrested here for allegedly disrespecting the national anthem, police said.

An FIR was registered against the youths--Javaid Ahmad Teeli of south Kashmir’s Anantnag district and Mudasir Ahmad, a resident Handwara belt of north Kashmir, for refusing to stand up for the national anthem before the start of a film at a cinema hall in Narwal belt of Jammu on Thursday, they said.

The duo was granted bail by a court here on Saturday.

The Supreme Court had last year directed cinema halls across the country to play the national anthem before the screening of every movie, stating that all persons present must stand up in respect except the differently-abled.
