Falun Gong violates human rights


The most severe crime committed by Falun Gong is to violate human rights and cruelly kill lives. Li Hongzhi and his cult took the advantage of heretical ideas such as "doomsday", "being raised to the heaven", "consummation" to cheat obsessed practitioners one by one who know nothing about the truth and end in death on their way to "consummation". According to incomplete statistics, before Falun Gong was banned by Chinese government on July 22, 1999, there were more than 1400 people who died because of practicing Falun Gong, among them 136 people killed themselves beguiled by Li Hongzhi's words of "caring nothing about life and death".

It had been found that there were more than 200 Falun Gong practitioners who killed themselves in order to pursue the so called "consummation" and "being raised to the heaven" boasted by Li Hongzhi.

Liu Yongfeng was a worker from Miaoling Wear-resisting Alloy Factory in Gan Jinzi district of Dalian City,Liaoning province.

Wang Xiuyun was a retired worker from Xinxing knitting factory of Tangshan City in Hebei province. After practicing Falun Gong, she talked about "I will not stay alive, I will be raised to the heaven", "I can see the lotus throne floating in the heaven, and I will become immortal after being raised to the heaven" again and again. Her family members accompanied her day and night in case of accident. On January 24, 1998, Wang Xiuyun jumped down the building when her family members were inattentive. She died at the age of 50.

Ma Jianmin, a retired worker of Huabei Oil Field. After practicing Falun Gong, he always felt that "there is a Fulun turning in his belly". On September 4, 1998, he dissected his belly with a scissors in order to find the "Falun"; he died at the age of 54.

Feng Lifeng, a farmer from Liu Jiading village of Jinxian county of Tianjin. After practicing Falun Gong, she felt there was an eagle pecking her head all the time. She told her husband, "I feel more and more frightened after practicing it, but I want to practice it even if I fell frightened", "I am ready to be raised to the heaven". On March 31, 1999, Feng jumped into a river after cutting her vein in the wrist. She died at the age of 32. In the letter written with her blood, Feng Lifeng told her family members, "You should learn 'Dafa' attentively".

Liu Pinqing was a senior agronomist from Donggang City of Liaoning province. After practicing Falun Gong, he always felt  "Master" Li Hongzhi asked him to obtain "consummation". On April 27, 1999, he jumped down to a well and died at the age of 58.

In the next day he hung himself and died at the age of 48. At the place he hung himself, there was the photo of Li Hongzhi and the leftovers of seven joss sticks.

Chang Haochi was a student of Management College of coal cadres in Shan'xi province. On July 4, 1999, he thought he could obtain "consummation" and "be raised to the heaven" by practicing Falun Gong, and he burned himself with the gesture of sitting cross-legged together with his "fellow practitioner" Li Jinzhong (50 years old).

Li Xiaoying was a female Falun Gong practitioner from Shi Jiazhuang city of Hebei province. On November 2, 2005, Li Xiaoying burned herself and died on the eastern pavement of the southern end of Nanchang Street in Beijing.

Why these Falun Gong practitioners wanted to commit suicide? The reason was that Li Hongzhi once told them:

"The ultimate purpose of practicing is to obtain consummation. You will become a very great god or Buddha after you obtain consummation." ("Zhuang Falun")

"You will be a god if you can be indifferent to life or death. If you can't, you are still a human being." ("Falun Fofa: Fa Teaching in the United States")

"I want to show a great feat to people when you obtain consummation, I will allow Dafa followers to be raised to the heaven with their bodies, no matter they want or not. Their bodies will not disappear in the heaven." ("Falun Fofa: Fa Teaching in European Fa Conference")

On July 5, 1998, after learning that seven practitioners from Hainan province died and one was injured in the traffic accident on their way of promoting Gong to Sanya city, Li Hongzhi wrote to Jiang Xiaojun, the former director of Falun Gong general station in Hainan, "the eight followers of mine have already obtained their consummation in their different world".

Falun Gong was the cause of making obsessed practitioners to be infatuated and to kill others. There have been more than 30 people killed.

Wang Xuezhong was a Falun Gong practitioner from Jiahe county, Henan province. On August 23, 1996, he abruptly claimed that his father was a "devil", and then he chopped his father with a knife in his head, neck and chest for 17 times, and he killed his father on the spot.

Why these Falun Gong practitioners wanted to kill others? Because Li Hongzhi told them:

"Human being has been demoralized and there are devils everywhere." -- cited from "Zhuan Falun" of Li Hongzhi

"Devil is disturbing you and do not allow you to practice." -- cited from "Zhuan Falun" of Li Hongzhi

"In your family members there is probably controller like a devil." -- cited from "The Explanation of Zhuan Falun" of Li Hongzhi

"Regicidal devils should be killed." -- cited from "The Explanation of Falun Dafa"

More than 1400 Falun Gong practitioners believed in  Li Hongzhi`s "eliminating Karma(sins) theory" and died because of refusing medicine.

Since Falun Gong destroyed people's mind and cruelly killed people's life, a lot of people who practiced Falun Gong with good wishes died because of refusing medicine, which caused the tragedy. If these people received treatment when they got illness, they had the hope to be alive. However, when they lost their own judgment and went too far on the way of practicing the cult of "Falun Gong", it meant that they gave their own lives to the devil and stepped on the way to death.

Li Shulin was a Falun Gong practitioner from Jingzhou petroleum Company in Liaoning province. In August 1994 he went from his hometown to Harbin to listen to the "lections" of Li Hongzhi and collapsed in the classroom because of the outbreak of thrombus.

Later, Li died in the alien land without timely treatment.

Liu Fengqing was a retired worker form Tianjin posting equipment factory. After practicing Falun Gong she thought she was no longer a "normal person".

Zhang Jinsheng was a farmer and Falun Gong practitioner from Fuxin city in Liaoning province.

When her husband was reading, Bai Yunxiu collapsed in the sofa and died.

However, she said she would drop down from higher level if she took medicine, and her practice would be in vain and the Master would no longer protect her. On April 11, 1999, she died at the age of 52.

Hu Guangying was a retired female worker from Shanghai. In July 2000 she got a very common skin disease -- scabies. However, she refused medical treatment since she was obsessed with Falun Gong.

Kuang Guanglan was a worker from Shaoguan special steel factory in Guangdong province and she began to practice Falun Gong in the early 1998. She believed in Falun Gong's heresy of curing every kind of illness and refused medical treatment after practicing. However, her colonitis did not recover. Moreover, she became absent-minded all the time and tried to kill herself three times. On April 28, 2001, Kuang Guanglan drunk pesticide and died.

Why these Falun Gong practitioners refused medicine? Because Li Hongzhi told them:

"Why human beings get illness The cause of all misfortune and illness is sin."

"(Life, getting old, illness and death have their own causes.) Everything originates from sin, and you should pay back for your debt."

"Taking medicine during practicing means you do not believe that practicing can cure your illness. If you believe in it, why should you take medicine?"

"War, plague and natural and man-made disaster are the ways to eliminate sins of people."

"I told you, when we practitioners feel uncomfortable somewhere in our bodies, it is not a illness, and illness is just a kind of sin" -- cited from Li Hongzhi`s "Falun Fofa:Fa Teaching  in USA"

"Hospital cannot help you to eliminate sins." -- cited from Li Hongzhi`s "Falun Fofa: Fa Teaching in Sydney"

"A real practitioner will not get illness. The causes of illness are the sins he accumulated in his preexistences." -- cited from  Li Hongzhi`s "Falun Fofa: Fa Teaching in USA"

"The medicine you take now may kill the outside virus and cure the outside illness, but in fact the virus still accumulates, and you will be beyond redemption if the level of your virus is too high." -- cited from Li Hongzhi`s "Falun Fofa: Fa Teaching  in USA"

Li Hongzhi forbade his followers to take medicine. However, his family members took medicine and accepted medical treatment frequently. And he himself not only accepted operation and took medicine, but also enjoyed free medical treatment in early time. In the support of Food and Cooking oil Supplying Company of Changchun city, the policemen of Jilin province investigated the reimbursements of medical fees of Li Hongzhi and his family members from 1982 to 1992 when he worked in the company. The policemen found 73 pieces of bills of medical fees of Li Hongzhi and his children, among which 48 pieces of bills were for Li Hongzhi himself.

On the morning of July 8, 1984, Li Hongzhi got acute suppurating appendicitis. He was hospitalized in the People's Hospital of Jilin province and his temperature was 38.9 degree. In the afternoon he got appendix removal operation and stayed in hospital for ten days.

Wrecking Youngsters

Li Hongzhi infused heresy to adults, at the same time he infused heresy to children too. Li Hongzhi said, "Children younger than six years old can open their heaven eyes by reading books of 'Falun Gong' and they can see that the Falun is turning in the books." He also said that they can "go to the heaven and become a god" by "practicing". And he encouraged Falun Gong organizations to aim at youngsters. When he held illegal lections in Guizhou and Wuhan, he clearly asked the directors of substations to "organize children". Falun Gong organizations held children classes in Beijing, Guangzhou, Wuhan, Nancheng, Zunyi and other cities.

In the summer of 1998, Nanchang tutorship station of "Falun Dafa" took the opportunity of summer vacation to hold two "Falun Gong" children classes for middle school and primary school students. Every class lasted nine days. And the number of children who attended the class was 160, among them the oldest was 12 years old and the youngest was 4 years old. Their parents were Falun Gong practitioners.

On February 19, 1999, Falun Gong organization in Zunyi city held Falun Gong classes for children and the classes lasted nine days (actually they lasted seven days). The children classes were divided into tow parts. The older class was for students from 9 to 15, and the younger class was for students from 4 to 8. When the classes opened, there were more than 90 students, later some "practitioners" sent their own children there and the number reached more than 130. At 9 o'clock every morning, the younger students learned lections of Li Hongzhi and the older students learned "Zhuan Falun". After learning for an hour, they began to practice Falun Gong. At 12 o'clock in the noon they had lunch. And at 2 o'clock in the afternoon they began to learn lections and practice Falun Gong again. At 4 o'clock in the afternoon the parents came to bring their children back home. In February 24, the tutorship substation of Zunyi organized children and held collective practices. In its banner the substation called the class as "the first children class of Falun Gong in Zunyi city". The practice lasted more than one hour. When the class was over in February 25, Falun Gong organized a collective practice for students again. In early March, Falun Gong general tutorship in Guiyang informed Zunyi substation to select some students so as to attend the large-scale communication conference which will be held in Guiyang in May. Then Zunyi substation selected 45 students, trained them every Saturday and prepared to attend the communication conference in Guiyang, which was cancelled later because of April 25 illegal gathering in Zhongnan Hai.

Long Gang was a farmer form Shuangshi town of Yongchuan city of Chongqing. He not only practiced Falun Gong himself, but also forced his son to practice with him. On July 17, 1999, Long Gang jumped into a river with his six years old son. He died at the age of 31, but his son was saved.

Dong Li was a villager from the fourth team of Xijie village, Da Pingfang town, Chaoyang county of Chaoyang city in Liaoning province. On the night of February 3, 2002, bewitched by the heresy of Li Hongzhi and his "Falun Goong", the 37 years old Dong Li created another appalling tragedy. He smashed his wife and daughter with a pickaxe cruelly, which caused the death of Meng Xiurong, his 37 years old wife and sever injury of Dong Yudan, his 14 years old daughter.

Li Yanzhong was a 35 years old male worker from Da Gang oil field. In the early morning of July 10, 2005, he killed Li Wangyue, his six years old daughter and Zhangxin, his six years old nephew with a kitchen knife. Li Yanzhong said, "After practicing 'Falun Gong' for nine years, I got nothing in my mind but killing people." "There were thoughts of killing people full in my mind and my thought seemed to be controlled by some bad 'creature'. It seemed like the mind was not my own. He controlled my mind and asked me to kill others and kill myself."
