A 207ft-Flag A Day Keeps The Anti-Nationalism Away?

The Human Resources Development Minister reacted to the JNU crisis by making it mandatory for all Central Universities to hoist the Indian Flag on a 207ft-high flagpole. But can nationalism and compassion for fellow Indians be imparted through executive orders? If so, then the Law Minister should order the installation of the tallest flag poles at Patiala House Court premises, where members of the legal fraternity behaved in a shameful manner. The Urban Development Minister may ensure hoisting of flags at the houses of elected representatives who conduct themselves like goons.
