Man arrested for standing up to unjust law

I was shocked to read this article at rediff, Man held for insulting national anthem 32 yrs ago. The man was arrested for refusing to stand up when the National Anthem was being played at a cinema hall in Akola. Why should cinema hall owners be forced to play the National Anthem before movies? Why should somebody be forced to pay respect to the National Anthem? Doesn't Govt. have anything else to do besides going around arresting people for not singing the National Anthem? Have all murders, burglaries, rapes and terrorists attacks ceased? Govt. needs to get its priorities straight! I feel bad for the man but also admire his courage for not following the stupid and unjust law.
