Bareilly (Uttar Pradesh) [India], Aug 16 : After a Madrasa in Bareilly did not adhere the state government's order on singing the national anthem on Independence Day; Bareilly's Divisional Commissioner P.V. Jaganmohan said that charges can be slapped on the seminary under the National Security Act (NSA).

Speaking to , Jagmohan said, "So far on Independence Day every school, government organisation and Madrasa abided to the rule which had been initiated. But the Madrasa which did not sing national anthem will be probed and National Security Act (NSA) can be imposed against them. Only after finding solid proof about anti-national activities we will probe this matter in details".

Earlier in week, the Bareilly district magistrate, R. Vikram Singh, had issued a statement that said the refusal to sing the national anthem may lead to a law and order situation and any person or organisation doing so will attract action under section 144 of Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) if he or she hampers proceedings during singing/reading of national anthem or asks them not to respect it.

The Jamiat-ur-Raza Madrasa in Bareilly came under the radar after refraining from singing the national anthem and video-recording the day's events. Nearly 1,000 students of the Madrasa, before ending the day shouted "Humara Hindustan zindabad" and broke into 'Sare Jahan Se Accha'.

This came even as some madrasas sang the national anthem and said they had no problem doing so.
