Sadhguru @ NALSAR


Question: Gautam Gambhir was of the opinion that people should be compelled to stand up for the national anthem, and he was surprised as to how this was even a topic of debate. As I understand, you agreed with him, with the only qualifier being that if somebody is disabled, he should not be forced. So, Sadhguru, my question is that should we not allow people to find out what their own independent interpretations of loyalty and allegiance are? I mean, we walk unaffected when women are raped, we stop Dalits from entering public facilities, there are so many injustices that we do. Just because we go to the cinema, we stand for the national anthem! How does that become a criteria for having allegiance to the nation, or being a patriot to the nation.
