(Clearwisdom.net) This past July, there was a practitioner in mainland China who was too attached to accomplishing something, and thus ignored studying the Fa. As a result, the evil was able to go after him. Local police and the 610 Office (an agency specifically created to persecute Falun Gong, with absolute power over each level of administration in the Party and all other political and judiciary systems) members searched his house and took away the Dafa books, materials, computer and printer, and other personal items. They also found out about the two websites that were created by Dafa practitioners for the purpose of spreading the truth to others. This practitioner and his wife (also a practitioner) were taken to the local security office. While he was facing the illegal interrogation, he resisted the evil, and constantly clarified the truth to the interrogator in order to bring out his kind nature. At last, when asked about the result of the interrogation, this person said: "It is not that I'm interrogating him. It's the other way around." On the other hand, his wife did not pass this test due to strong acquired notions, and silently accepted their illegal persecution.

This couple was put into the detention center. While the husband was illegally arrested and detained because he was considered to have committed "serious wrongdoings," his wife had only been detained for 15 days because she had not been to the Tiananmen Square, and had not been engaged in distributing Dafa materials. The husband started a hunger strike the day he was put into the detention center to protest the illegal detention. He refused to put on the uniform for criminals, and refused to do the routine exercises required for inmates. Instead he clarified the truth to other inmates whenever he saw a chance. Five or six days into his hunger strike, he was sent to the hospital for treatment. As soon as he returned to the detention center, he started another hunger strike. Meanwhile, he intensified the elimination of evil forces from other dimensions, and he sent forth righteous thoughts often. One day he saw that four snakes that used to surround him had been eliminated. He became enlightened to the fact that the snakes were the manifestation in another dimension of the detention center where he was jailed. He realized that he would be set free soon. Sure enough, he was released several days later and the reason was that he was "seriously ill." He had been detained for no more than one month. According to the people in charge of these kinds of cases, such a big case would usually result in at least several years in a labor camp.

Meanwhile, his wife had been very cooperative with the evil's demands. She was expected to be released after 15 days of detention. Surprisingly, as soon as she got out of the detention center, she was sent to an "education office." She was told to stay there for six months to receive the so-called "law education study." And she is still there at present.

The husband got out of detention center and there has been no trouble for him since.
