Under the direction of the Police Administration, a city in China recently conducted a far-reaching campaign to search for and harass Falun Gong practitioners.
Facing this unusual action, practitioners were not daunted. They treated everyone who came to their homes with tolerance and kindness, be it from the police station or neighbourhood associations. They felt that it was a good opportunity to tell these people the facts about Falun Gong. With practitioners remaining calm, exhibiting neither fear nor resentment, the policemen gradually loosened up. After listening to the practitioners talking about their own experiences and the wonders that they had witnessed, the policemen began to show respect.
One practitioner met a policeman who was wandering outside his house. He went up, said hello, and asked the policeman, "You haven't done bad things lately, have you?"
The policeman said, "No."
The practitioner said, "Why don't you come to my home."
Being worried about not being able to finish the assignment and getting in trouble from his superior, the policeman said, "Sure, sure."
At the door, the practitioner said with a smile, "As always, you have to say 'Falun Dafa is good' when you walk in."
The policeman recited loudly at the door, "Falun Dafa is good."
Quite a few practitioners respectfully hang the founer of Falun Gong, Mr. Li Hongzhi's picture in their homes. Policemen were upset and tried to take the pictures off the walls when they first went to practitioners' homes. The practitioners solemnly told them, "This is my Teacher. No one can touch it." In the face of practitioners' calm but determined attitude, policemen listened quietly to practitioners telling them the facts about Falun Gong. Now when the policemen leave, they politely Heshi (press their hands together in front of their chest, a sign of respect) to Teacher's picture.
Quite a few policemen told practitioners that they were forced to go to their homes, "The action this time is to have a show for the superiors." Some policemen told the practitioners in front of other policemen, "I will become a Falun Gong practitioner once I quit my police job."
Many policemen told practitioners that lately Falun Gong materials have exposed many covered up stories that were not known to the local people. The materials vividly described some rational discussions and righteous actions regarding Falun Gong. It described in detail the wonders that had occurred locally in the past seven years, and the mishaps which befell the crooked cops and local officials. It reported that the high officials directing the persecution of Falun Gong were wanted overseas. People learnt that evil people were punished and that police morale was extremely low. Pictures of the worried faces of evildoers are exposed worldwide, so some people in the Police Administration felt that they had lost face and thus became very upset. They were frightened and tried to use this campaign to improve police morale, in order for the persecution of Falun Gong to continue.
In spite of the apparent excitement that this campaign generated, everyone knew that this was their last struggle. Privately policemen all knew that they would not have good results. They also complained about their superiors' following Jiang Zemin's gang to persecute Falun Gong. Many policemen marvelled at the capabilities and were inspired by the nobility of practitioners. Some expressed their strong desire to associate and become friends with practitioners.
Falun Gong has become a hot topic
One day my husband and I went to the bookstore and I overheard the clerks talking about Falun Gong so I went up and tried to listen to them.
A: "You guys can see that here in the bookstore we have everything, but we just don't have Falun Gong books."
B: "Wasn't it determined by the nation that it is a cult?"
C: "Why don't you guys be quiet. Haven't you heard that they just arrested some practitioners the other day?"
A: "It has been so many years. How come the more practitioners they arrest, the more practitioners there are? This means that Falun Gong is indeed good. Otherwise why would it become more popular as they arrest people? If there is a Falun Gong book, I would sure like to read it to find out what is in it."
B: "I would read it too if there was one."
C: "Don't let the police arrest you."
A: "I don't believe it. If they arrest you just because you read a Falun Gong book, then the whole nation should read it and see if they can arrest everyone."
Hearing their discussion. I felt that all of the world's people are awakening.
One night I heard some older people talking about Falun Gong on the street. I walked closer to listen to them. One older man said, "I heard that the police in district A are visiting people at their homes. In reality they are trying to get into practitioners' houses and see if they can find Falun Gong books or materials. We should also all go to people's homes and ask them to hide their Falun Gong books. We don't want them to be confiscated."
Others said one after another, "What kind of government is this? They will not let people live. With no money to see doctors, what is wrong with doing exercises to improve one's health? Jiang Zemin is nothing. How can you say that they are a cult just because you think so? The practitioner living in our neighbourhood is such a wonderful person. I think that the Chinese Communist Party is finished."
Now more and more people are learning the facts.
