Chinese Regime Running Out of Steam to Persecute Falun Gong?
Things are different in China these days. Hundreds of thousands of Chinese people have sued the former dictator who launched the persecution against Falun Gong, and this has made many officials and police officers unwilling to continue persecuting, Minghui.org reported.
Minghui.org is a website that reports on the persecution of Falun Gong, including statistics about the number of people confirmed to have been killed, records of how many have sued former dictator Jiang Zemin, and personal accounts of extraordinary happenings during the persecution.
Falun Gong is a peaceful meditation discipline based on truthfulness, kindness, and tolerance, principles that are the polar opposite of the Chinese communist regime’s ideology of violence and struggle. The regime has been trying to wipe out Falun Gong since 1999 without success.
Lately, Minghui.org reported, there have been many instances of police officers or detention centers refusing to imprison Falun Gong practitioners. Many ordinary citizens, after years of believing the regime’s propaganda against Falun Gong, have changed their minds and quit the Chinese Communist Party to protest the persecution.
“It seems unlikely that the policy of persecution can be sustained much longer if the current trend continues,” a Minghui.org article stated on Jan. 24.
The wave of lawsuits against Jiang began in May 2015. The persecution is still severe in many parts of China, and many Falun Gong practitioners have been arrested for sending in the lawsuits, though Chinese law allows citizens to file criminal complaints.
However, some police officers now support the practitioners after hearing them explain why they are filing the complaints.
In one case described on Minghui.org, two officers banged on the door of a practitioner in Chongqing who had sued Jiang. The woman opened the door and explained to them that Falun Gong had greatly improved her health, yet she had been persecuted for practicing Falun Gong because of Jiang.
Instead of arresting her, the officers quit the Chinese Communist Party.
