‘Just mention of exemption for disabled not enough’, say activists

Salil Chaturvedi (48), disability campaigner, said that prior to playing of the national anthem at cinema halls, the Supreme Court order must ask theatres to flash a message conveying exemptions granted to the differently-abled people.
In the backdrop of the Supreme Court order, disability rights activists say that mere mention of “exemption” for the differently-abled in the order is not enough to protect them from “overzealous nationalists”.
