Incredulous Bangladesh bans use of its national anthem as a ringtone

"The national anthem can't be used as a business tool," the Supreme Court said, upholding a 2010 high court ruling.

  • Published:

Bangladesh's Supreme Court on Monday banned the use of the national anthem as a ringtone for mobile telephones or for any other commercial purpose.

"The national anthem can't be used as a business tool," the Supreme Court said, upholding a 2010 high court ruling.

The anthem, Amar Shonar Bangla or My Golden Bengal, is based on the first 10 lines of a 1905 song written by Rabindranath Tagore, the first non-European to win the Nobel Prize for literature. It was adopted as the anthem in 1972.
