BREAKING: India Bans New Toofan Singh Movie Again

INDIAN CENSOR BOARD REFUSE CLEARANCE FOR THE RELEASE OF TOOFAN SINGH

NEW DELHI, India—The highly anticipated Punjabi film Toofan Singh starring Ranjit Bawa has yet again been refused clearance for release in India by the Indian Central Board for Film Certification (CBFC).

The film was originally scheduled for release on July 15, 2016 but was postponed after the Indian censor board chairman refused clearance after the board was unable to reach a consensus.  A subsequent Revising Committee refused certification citing that “the film depicts anti-national elements and glorifies the Khalistan movement.” A tribunal decision in September 2016 paved the way for the fresh submission to the CBFC following legal inaccuracies.

Toofan Singh is the story of a young Sikh boy growing up in Punjab during the turbulent 1980’s. The story charters his pursuit for justice, survival and equality for all. Devastated by the deteriorating law and order situation, Toofan Singh is forced to fight against corruption, crime and brutality in order to protect society at large.

Following the decision of the Indian Central Board for Film Certification (CBFC) coupled with the demand from Indian audiences, Royal Cine Arts remastered the entire film to address all points raised by the CBFC. Despite full co-operation, a fresh submission to the CBFC on July 13, 2017 received an outright blanket refusal for clearance. A distinct message was communicated outlining that clearance would never be granted regardless of current or any future amendments. 

The film is the directorial debut of Baghal Singh and stars renowned Punjabi singer Ranjit Bawa in a project which was his original acting debut. Speaking about the decision, Baghal Singh stated: 

“It is highly disappointing that the CBFC have refused clearance despite our full co-operation with all industry rules and regulations. Furthermore, they have made it clear that regardless of our efforts, clearance will never be granted. This clearly indicates that the system is highly prejudicial and is openly restricting freedom of expression. A great deal of research, effort and cost has gone into producing and ensuring a high quality and authentic film was produced. In light of the unprecedented response to the film trailer, it is unfortunate that Indian audiences will be unable to watch the film upon it’s international release date. Toofan Singh will still be released internationally on the 4th of August and we will continue to make every effort to challenge the CBFC.”

Sikhs are rich in India and living good life and was prime minister , army cheif , Air Force cheif , actors , singers , Buisness man , wealthy people , president , politician , Supreme Court cheif justice . Still India is committing atrocities . They are only 1.5%. I know what I am talking about . On the other hands Hindus got killed by Sikh extremists in Punjab . They got killed by Muslims in Kashmir , Kerala , Bengal , . If Sikhs are not safe in India , then Hindus are not safe in India either . So stop false drama . You know what is truth . You know institution like dal Khalsa and sgpc think they are bigger than state . They should be religious party . But they are doing politics in gurudwara . You guys have made gurudwara a political and jihadi centers . Someone hardly see photos of gurus in gurudwara . Only you will find pictures of jihadis . Who killed more Hindus . They are your bigger heroes . So please stop that drama

    13. Mr: Harish you are just listening to your govt: and what your media shows you. If you have gutz be neutral and go on internet and find some truth.

    • The Killings of 1908-90 was done by some SUPARI KILLERS for the greed of money and power.
      The Killings of 1980-90 e are to put on SIKHS the LABEL of

      1) TERRORISTS
      2) KHALISTANI

      and then carry out GENOCIDES and EXTRA JUDICIAL KILLINGS.

  5. Your any argument can not change me because how much atrocities has committed on Hindus by rest of religion . It is immeasurable . I know what is my mission of life .

  6. The communal people who are against justice & equality, how they will allow a movie in which a brave Sikh boy fights for justice & equality for everyone.
    The parties whose religion is corruption, crime & brutality will tolerate a Sikh hero fighting against these evils.

  7. Dogs cannot accept the truth or even little truth – still scared of even the movies now or photos….. ! You are god to know the mission of life ? what disgusting individual you are – no respect of anyone but for the dogs of your kind.

  8. India and Pakistan are 2 new Nation built by the British EMPIRE in 1947
    Both the Nation’s are still in its Realm not withstanding the a virtual 1947 FReedom .
    Both Nations are still still administered by

    1) Constitution
    2) Client Army
    3) Common wealth ship
    4) Congress in India and Military Dictator ship in Pakistan.

    Any REBELLION in these two Nations will invite the Wrath of EMPIRE acting in unison with the client ARMY.
    Be very careful of the ” BIG BROTHER”
    “THE EMPIRE”
    which rules over the PLANET EARTH which creates and destroys Nations at its will.

  9. No where in the world is an REBELLION tolerated by any NATION.
    Get used to the REALITY that Punjab is now part of India.
    The days of Kingdom of RANJIT Singh are over after the Anglo–Sikh war in 1848.
    In its place a new Nation has been created called INDIA.
    This is called in world the
    ” Games of Thrones”
    played by EMPIRES by which it makes and breaks Nations.

  10. Rebellion in any part of planet is dealt like this by the EMPIRE
    1) Individual Rebels:- Dronized
    2) Group Rebels:- Controlled Genocides
    3) Nations Rebels :- Bombed to stone age or Nuked or dismantled or a civil war.

  11. Whatever we do with China that’s our personal matter , but bitch like surinder Kaur just chill and keep on running your prostitution Buisness in canada

  12. If somebody is Brahman, he should know the meaning of Brahman which is a person who always remembers Brahm, if someone is born in Brahman family & always writes & uses such mean words, I doubt his family background. I don’t know from where he learn such words from his parents, Ram or Krishna, Gita or Ramayana. He has no place in civilized world, he should live & bark with other animals.
    If he’s product of RSS, very disgusting, India should eradicate such parties before saying “mera Bharat Mahan “

  13. There is nothing wrong with an BRAHMAN.
    They are good people and that is why the 9 Guru gave his life for them.
    Please respect and BRAHMAN and don’t use wrong words.
    They have preserved INDIA history nicely.

  14. I doubt about family of Hardeep Singh . I think his real father is Brahman . But he abandon he is find out that he is gaddar

  15. The Killings of 1908-90 was done by some SUPARI KILLERS for the greed of money and power.
    The Killings of 1980-90 e are to put on SIKHS the LABEL of

    1) TERRORISTS
    2) KHALISTANI

    and then carry out GENOCIDES and EXTRA JUDICIAL KILLINGS.

  16. Evil hind kutta harish!! HOW DARE YOU REFER TO OUR GURU GOBIND SINGH JIO SURINDER KAUR AS WHAT IS YOUR KAUM MOSTLY!!!
    SINGHNIS ARE LIONESS PRINCESSES NOT WHORES AS YOUR KAUM WOMEN MOSTLY ARE!!

  17. hateful lying harish and/ alias harinder, why don’t you both get a life and teach your rss losers same, instead of picking on, defaming, and being envious of Sikhs, and STOP denying VIOLENT IMMORAL NATURE of your kind!!

  18. Hahahaha! Poor baman Harish, who doesn’t know he is son of Ravan, Ahmed shah Abdali, or Feroz Khan Gandhi? Sorry! We couldn’t save your mother every time because we were confused who is your mother, cow mata, Bharat mata, Indira mata?

  19. But I can tell u all jihadis you are son bhondrawsla , all of your mothers are different but father is same bhondrawsla

  20. If any one Rebels again like Toofan Singh then the EMPIRES
    Drones will kill him
    So Just take it easy .
    The BIG BROTHER EMPIRE maintains a WORLD ORDER in which REBELLION is Forbidden.

  21. EMPIRE will never allow a SIKH – THEOCRATIC STATE to come up.
    It will be BOMBED out of existence.

    Remember

    1) 1848 : The Anglo–Sikh war and the Kingdom disappeared
    2) 1984 : The BLUE STAR and the TANKS .

    Next Rebellion will see

    1) Air power
    2) Drones
    3) Missiles
    being Tested from SPACE STATION.

  22. Remember if any one puts a True or a False label on the community or an individual of

    1) TERRORISTS
    2) KHALISTANIS

    Then his days are numbered on this planet.
