Shandong Practitioners Cultivate Diligently and Clarify the Facts Despite Persecution
(Minghui.org) Our town is among the areas where Falun Dafa (also known as Falun Gong) has been severely persecuted by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). We have continuously sent forth strong righteous thoughts to negate the persecution and reject every arrangement made by the evil elements. We have walked the cultivation path arranged by Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Gong, to do the three things well and to cultivate firmly to the end.
Recently, local police officers have started a new trick called “knocking on the door.” They go door-to-door among known Falun Gong practitioners to acquire “evidence” to use against them, demanding signatures on documents and taking their photos.
Despite the harsh persecution, practitioners and their family members have continuously told public security personnel the facts about Falun Gong. Below are several stories about how practitioners have responded to the harassment.
Police Officers Quit the Party
A practitioner had been harassed repeatedly by the police. When visited by two officers one day, this practitioner calmly said, “You are young and should be careful not to fall into the evil's trap! Look at Zhou Yongkang, Li Dongsheng and other key perpetrators who relentlessly carried out the persecution. All of them, as well as their families, received karmic retribution. They have been jailed. Who will come to rescue them? Where is Jiang Zemin?”
This practitioner continued, “Do you know why the persecution is still going on? It is because Buddha compassionately gives human beings opportunities to be saved. We Falun Gong practitioners risk arrest, torture, and imprisonment just to save people like you. It is time for you to renounce the CCP and be saved. I can help you with an alias.”
With tears in his eyes, one officer agreed. He then pointed to another officer behind him and said, “Please also help him quit the CCP.” The other policeman agreed, as well.
Practitioner's Husband Stands Up to the Police
When two local police officers came to visit a practitioner, they were stopped outside the door by her husband.
He said loudly, “I do not trust the CCP any more, not like before. After filing a lawsuit against Jiang Zemin, my wife was taken to the police station. You claimed that it would only take a little while for questioning. But she was detained for ten days. She was very sick after she came home. If anything happens again, I will hold you accountable. Forget the signatures and just leave!”
The two officers were speechless and left.
“I Will Cultivate Diligently!”
A practitioner in her 80s gave up cultivation after the persecution was launched in 1999.
Six months ago, she was involved in a car accident and suffered a serious comminuted fracture. Her injury healed soon after she repeatedly recited “Falun Dafa is good and Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” She then resumed cultivation.
When a police officer came to this practitioner's home and demanded that she sign a document renouncing Falun Gong, she told him, “I recovered from a serious fracture because Master still accepted me as Dafa disciple!” She then wrote on the statement, “I will cultivate diligently and follow Master to the end!”
Continuing to Make Informational Materials
A practitioner in her 70s uses her home as an informational materials production site. She was busy making these materials one day when a policeman came by to harass her. She quickly turned off the computer and met the policeman at the door.
After learning what he wanted, she wrote the following words on the document he'd handed her: “The world needs Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good! I will cultivate diligently to the end!”
She then resumed her task after the police officer left.
