Disability group wants Apex Court to take cognizance of Home Ministry guidelines on national anthem


3
The National Platform for the Rights of the Disabled has asked the Supreme Court to consider, in its next hearing on February 14, issues related with the guidelines prescribed by the Home Ministry on the national anthem vis a vis disabled people. The disability group believes that the guidelines, issued in compliance with the Supreme Court order of December 9, 2016 on the national anthem, would lead to unnecessary harassment for persons with disabilities.
In a statement issued here, the National Platform for the Rights of the Disabled has said that the guidelines specify that those whose lower limbs are affected and are wheelchairs users will position themselves to the “extent of maximum attentiveness and alertness”.
