Mumbai: A video clip showing a Muslim family being thrown out of a theatre for allegedly not standing up during the national anthem has gone viral in social media.

The video shows a family seated, engaged in  a heated argument with a mob that had gathered around them, questioning as to why they could not  stand up for the national anthem if they could sit and watch a movie for four hours.

Alternative reports have appeared with some claiming that the incident occurred during a screening of Tamasha in PVR Mumbai, while others claim that it took place at PVR Bengaluru.

The video also shows audience applauding as the family leaves the theatre. We take no responsibility for the authenticity of the video.
