The video was shot at the convocation ceremony of Srinagar’s Sher-e-Kashmir University, which took place on July 4th. Most of the university students were seen standing up when the national anthem was played but some refused to follow suit.
This has been a trend in Kashmir recently, as similar incidents of disrespecting national symbols have taken place in the state. Two cricket teams were booked by the police after they decided to play and stand for the Pakistani national anthem ahead of a cricket match in Kashmir recently.
The students of Baba Ghulam Shah Badshah University in Rajouri were also charged for disrespecting the national anthem recently.
