I don’t think I was ever ‘forced to sing the national anthem in cinemas.’ It’s all in your mind. If you let it dijajah, it will be dijajah.
You have a choice, sit and let the song get played and look at people who stood up and sang with the anthem. No one will apprehend you.
I was in the cinema the other night for a 11.40pm show. There were less than 10 people in the hall. We all stood up to sing the anthem.
Maybe it’s just lil ol me who rindu berdiri tegak nyanyi lagu Negaraku. Maybe it’s my obsessed to wanting a sense of patriotism.
When the blue blood champions the struggle of the under-privileged from the comfort of good food and warm shelters.
