A video about a Muslim family asked to leave a theatre because they did not stand for the national anthem is gaining attention on social media. The over two-minute video clip shows a few people arguing with the family, who they accuse of making excuses for not standing up when the national anthem was playing. The video shows the family, surrounded by the group of people, trying to defend itself, but the efforts are in vain. The Muslim family is forced to leave the theatre and the people present there welcome that with applause.
