WHEN LIONS ROAR 3 – A Continuing Genocide (Official Promo)

admin June 15, 2011 23 Comments

Everyday in Punjab, Sikh farmers are haunted by the memories of the past, while they are faced with struggles of today. The traumatic experiences of state violence from 1984 are fresh in the minds of many, as justice is continuously denied.

Today, Punjabi Farmers are increasingly turning to suicide as a method to cope with government policies that have robbed them of their land, wealth, heritage and way of life.

This is just one example of the many communities in Punjab that continue to suffer as a result of 1984.

The Genocide continues…

    Awesome video!!!!
    But what is that hallway supposed to be???

  2. MISS KAUR June 17, 2011 at 2:59 am

    anyway…maybe he’s a guy who’s in a hospital who just woke up after the 1984 massacre of sikhs or some other horrific event like june 1984..the singh with his hair open and hands tied behind his back is a glimpse of reality, thats what ugly soldiers of india did to sikhs in june 84…it can mean a lot of things…i dunno..but its a cool video….good job

    i have no intentions of creating a stir, but the act of suicide is against the ideals of sikhi.

    Any person who commits suicide cannot be considered as a sikh, and that includes the farmers of punjab, no offense.

  4. Manveen June 17, 2011 at 11:09 pm

    My Grandpa wrote a book about sikhism. He was really famous in punjab. Remember 1984 when Lions Roar!!

  5. MISS KAUR June 17, 2011 at 11:10 pm

    YA annoymous…go away, we dont care about your opinions, no one is saying that suicide is acceptable, what this video is showing is the harsh realities that lead people to commit suicide, i don’t agree with suicide but i do feel sorry for people and their families because they are victims, if we can teach them to be true sikhs, teach them gurbani, make punjab a better place, then the suicide rates will drop, “any person who commits suicide cannot be considered a sikh”…a sikh is a learner of the guru, also, i think u are here just to creare a STIR, u state that your not, but ur definitely some loser who wants to create a stir so stop writing stupid things

    very heart touching video… well done!!!!

  7. MISS KAUR June 19, 2011 at 9:30 pm

    this is a messege to all of the HATERS OUT THERE…

    i have noticed that on other websites, people are saying some really stupid things and criticizing this video, most of them just happen to be non-punjabis from india or hindu punjabis who are upset that “jusreign” was somehow involved in the making of this video….

    so this is my messege to all of the HATERS…

    F**K OFF, GO MIND YOUR OWN DAMN BUSINESS, WHEN AN ENTIRE ARMY OF A NATION INVADES YOUR LAND AND KILLS THOUSANDS OF INNOCENT PEOPLE AND JUSTIFIES IT BY STARTING ALL THIS PROPAGANDA THAT SANT JANARIAL SINGH WAS A THREAT TO THE “POOR” “HELPLESS” HINDUS OF PUNJAB, THEN TELL US HOW YOU WOULD FEEL??

    …also, you guys always mention the hindus who died, well, no one here is saying that killing innocent people is morally right, no matter what their religion is…… at the end of the day, THOUSANDS of more sikhs were killed and some of the hindus who died, were actually state sponsored killings as well because they were “black cats” who killed them, (a gang of thugs, murderers, and thieves the police created)

    also, at the end of the day, there was so much hatred from hindus, this hatred was what lead to the horrific killings, burning, looting, and rape of sikhs after indira gandhis death, also, in haryana, this poor sikh victim went to the police and the police laughed at him, they told him to cut his hair and then they would file a report, how discriminatory is that?…i am not saying that all hindus discriminate against sikhs, but at the end of the day, discrimination still exists in india, and the hindu mobs that killed sikhs and burned all of their property all over india are a prime example of this, i think some hindus just don;t want to admit that there are issues in india and that some people behave in a barbaric manner

    ONCE AGAIN 2 THUMBS UP FOR THIS VIDEO, DON;T EVER LET THE OPINIONS OF LOSERS STOP YOU FROM MAKING SUCH A GREAT VIDEOS, KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!!!!!!!!!

  8. ? June 21, 2011 at 1:18 am

    i don’t understand the concept of the farmer walking through the school hall way..? I understand your showing the Sikh past but why is the farmer walking through the school hall way and walks out to a field in India..?

  9. Simran June 23, 2011 at 7:58 pm

    Yo, guy great video!!! Gud job!!I almost cried!!!

  10. deep kaur June 24, 2011 at 2:37 am

    very touching video thanks for the seva

  11. reesh December 4, 2011 at 2:25 pm

    I dont understand, lot of farmers(hindus,muslims…) are killing themselves in Maharashtra, how could punjabi farmers dying in punjab be related to incidents of 1984?

  12. MISS KAUR December 4, 2011 at 5:58 pm

    so many people in punjab committed suicide due to the way the police were treat ing them during the 80s & 90s…

    foscusing on today, the suicide issue is much more complex and it relates to the indian government’s unwillingness to fulfil the promises it gave to sikhs if they “joined” the republic of india in 1947, economic conditions of punjab are related to 1984 because sikhs were fighting for more autonomy, the government denied it and continues to deny it and not only sikhs, but all of punjab gets affected negatively when a government is corrupt and favours other states with hindu majority population and fail to industrialize punjab and give people opportunities to succeed in life

    contrary to popular belief, punjab is not a wealthy state, the people are suffering…india spread these myths of punjab being a success because they do not want to actually HELP people because it can continue to be a region that is ignored because people are apparently “successful”

    “F**K OFF, GO MIND YOUR OWN DAMN BUSINESS”
    What kind of language are we using to get our point across here.
    A big problem with Farmer suicides is the amount of debt Farmers are collecting. Unfortunately, we have become materialistic and have forgotten the lessons of the Gurus. Punjab is under the threat of drugs and alcoholism. Farmers are taking out huge loans and putting up their vast lands as collateral. Farmers are not even working on their lands- they are using hired hands who get away with anything as the Farmer lies drunk or getting high. This is going on in many villages in Panjab. Many people are getting money from abroad from relatives working in US, Australia Canada and using that money to build outragious homes and buying expensive cars. That has created a “keeping up with the Joneses” mentality. Many farmers have lost their land as they are unable to re-pay their loans and this brings on depression and substance abuse. What worries me is the influx of Biharis and others into punjab who are buying up lands. Pretty soon, we will be the ones working for the Bhayas.

    oh no arrest me for saying the “F” word

    many people couldn’t handle this video, which apparently JusReign helped make, the “F” word was sent out to all the haters who love to do nothing but hate everything on this blog

  15. Rav Singh March 4, 2012 at 12:59 am

    “the “F” word was sent out to all the haters who love to do nothing but hate everything on this blog” ? Haters ? This is a democratic forum and not a dictatorship. If you don’t agree with others it would be more consistant with “Sikhi” to humbly discuss your viewpoints. “F” is uncalled for.
    We are our own worst enemies. Why are we intolerant of our own people. There is not a lot of support but hatred to Sikhs that do not follow the code. Why is the government succesful in bringing down the Sikhs ? Because of the many different sects, castes, class, cleanshaven, amritdhari and other divisions amongst our people. If we were all to unite as one sangat, then we would truly see the government fail in their agendas against the Sikhs.

  16. MISS KAUR March 5, 2012 at 5:14 am

    LOL a “democratic” form and not a dictatorship…RELAX dude!

    i sure as hell know that i live in a democratic country and we have the freedom to express opinions and views, which is why i CAN SAY THE “F” WORD if i want to

    and i don’t have any enemies, saying “F” the haters doesn’t mean i have enemies…..and I’m telling people to give live in Nazi Germany, your over exaggerating with the whole dictatorship thing

    the only thing thats really annoying to me is that whenever something really good is being done, such as this video, people always have to say something negative, and of course people have the right to say whatever they want, but I’m just suspicious that many of these people have special interests, such as indian intelligence because they are the ones who try to divide and rule, thats their job, they get paid for it and their probably reading this right now so HELLO to all you folks!!!

  17. MISS KAUR March 5, 2012 at 5:16 am

    ***im not telling people to go and live in Nazi Germany****

    WARNING: EVEN RIGHT NOW THIS SITE IS UNDER ATTACK BY VIRUSES….THEIR TRYING TO GET THIS SITE!!!

  19. Rav Singh March 9, 2012 at 10:48 pm

    No need for arrest. Using such profanities only show how you view your fellow neighbor. Please do not use”F word” to slander others. If you need to get your views across, you should do so using language that is more befitting a lady/human/educated/spiritual etc person.

  20. MISS KAUR March 11, 2012 at 6:07 am

    a “lady”

    are you yourself an educated person?

    so i should use language that is more befitting a lady… I should be more ladylike and not swear?

    don’t make me get all feminist on this blog mr highly educated perfect spiritual human Rav Singh
