Two Stories about How Practitioner Fu Rong Boldly Clarified the Truth
(Clearwisdom.net) Fu Rong (a pseudonym) is a veteran Falun Dafa practitioner from Mainland China. Since April 25, 1999, when the repression and persecution of Falun Dafa began, she has been clarifying the truth of Falun Dafa face-to-face with people. She tells people that practitioners strive to be good people and yet they are subjected to the persecution. Fu Rong has brought other practitioners with her to clarify the truth. The following are two of her stories.
I. Openly and Aboveboard Clarifying the Truth to the Police
One of Fu Rong's fellow practitioners was released from a labor camp. The practitioner's former husband is a policeman who was forced to divorce his wife after the persecution of Falun Gong officially began on July 20, 1999. Because this practitioner was forced to live on the street for a long time and was imprisoned for over two years in a forced labor camp, she had not seen her child for a long time. After her release, this practitioner expressed her wish to her former husband to see their child. He flatly refused. After hearing about this matter, Fu Rong thought that it was not only her fellow practitioner's matter. Fu Rong thought she must help her to gain her legal right as a parent to see her child. She suggested that the fellow practitioner speak to her former husband's work unit in order for them to intervene on her behalf. After the fellow practitioner agreed, Fu Rong went with her to the police station.
The fellow practitioner told the policeman in the reception area of her intention. After he realized that she was a Falun Gong practitioner, he became biased and began to discriminate against her. Fu Rong immediately questioned the policeman: "Which article of the law says that Falun Gong practitioners cannot have a family? Which article says a husband should divorce his wife if she practices Falun Gong? Your fellow policeman divorced his wife due to pressure from your superior, or else from the involvement of a third person. This is sabotaging people's marriage and it is against the marriage law!" The policeman immediately softened his tone fearing that further argument would expose the fact that their director pressured a police colleague to divorce his wife.
At that time, the policeman was called away by another officer of a higher rank. When he came back, the policeman's attitude became harsh again. He took out a pen and paper and questioned Fu Rong, "What is your name? What is your telephone number? Were you both together in the labor camp?" He acted as if he was conducting a trial.
Fu Rong immediately realized that the policeman's superior did not want to concede to the practitioners. They wanted to threaten the practitioners hoping that they would back off. Fu Rong told the policeman openly and aboveboard, "My name is Fu Rong. My phone number is ......." Fu Rong realized that the policeman wanted to arrest those Falun Gong practitioners who went to the police station themselves so that he could be "rewarded." Realizing the intention of the policeman, she continued, "We did not go to the labor camp together. I was sent there earlier and I was a more important target. The police station and police bureau of my district knew about me. The policemen there treated me very nicely, even the leader of the city knew about me. The municipal party secretary has been asking me to write articles reflecting the wrongful treatment of Falun Gong." The policeman realized that she had openly conducted herself as a Falun Gong practitioner, and it was no use to report her.
At that moment, a female police officer in the same office began to back down from her formerly aggressive stance. She started to talk about the lies attacking Falun Gong on TV. Fu Rong took advantage of the opportunity to clarify the truth to them. The fellow practitioner also cooperated with her. Building upon the sympathy of the policewoman, Fu Rong told her that a Falun Gong practitioner in her district was stripped of all her clothes and thrown into a male prison cell. The male inmates took turns raping her. After learning this story, the policewoman was outraged and said loudly, "What kind of police are they? They are a pestilence!" Her attitude changed greatly and she began to sympathize with Falun Gong.
Having seen the effect of the practitioners' visit, the policeman in the reception area wanted to end the discussion as soon as possible and immediately said, "All right, do you want to see your child? I have to go to a meeting right now. We will solve the problem for you so you can see your child."
II. Encouraging a Fellow Practitioner to Clarify the Truth and to Ask that What is Rightfully Hers be Returned
Another fellow practitioner of Fu Rong's openly and in an aboveboard manner went back to the labor camp where he had been confined for a long period and where he had suffered through various brutal tortures. Right after the practitioner was released, another practitioner told her that the situation in her house was perilous due to the persecution. Fu Rong's situation was not good either, as the police often monitored Fu Rong. They warned this practitioner to never try and meet with Fu Rong. The practitioner was afraid to go home and also always tried to avoid seeing Fu Rong.
After a tremendous effort, Fu Rong found this practitioner. After speaking with Fu Rong, the fellow practitioner learned that Fu Rong had always upheld her righteous thoughts and actions in dealing with the police. Fu Rong used her wisdom and took the opportunities to clarify the truth to the police, which had created an environment benefiting others around her. Thus, the fellow practitioner realized what she should do and she returned to her home with Fu Rong. The fellow practitioner's husband had some doubts about Falun Dafa because his wife had not returned home due to fear. Now, he felt grateful to Fu Rong for finding his wife and bringing her home. He asked Fu Rong, "Can she can stay home?" Fu Rong said, "Yes! You must help her if the police come to harass her." He said, "Of course! The police have arrested her, and tortured her. What else do they want? If they come again, I will fight with them endlessly!" Fu Rong said, "If you are worried for her, you can let her stay in my house for a few days." The husband said, "Thank you very much."
Because the fellow practitioner has lost her job because of her practice of Falun Gong, she was in need of money upon her return. Her brother had sold her parents' house without giving her her share. She spoke to her brother about the financial crisis she was facing now. She never thought her brother would refuse her request. When the fellow practitioner met Fu Rong, she said very angrily, "How come I have this kind of a brother? When he was in difficulty, I helped him unconditionally. Now I am in trouble, and he even refuses to give my part of our parents' home." Fu Rong said, "Don't be angry! Clarify the truth to them, tell them about all the tortures you have suffered in the labor camp. When they know the truth, they will sympathize with you and give you your money."
The fellow practitioner went to see her brother and sister-in-law. She told them that she had been shocked with electric batons that left her body covered with injuries. She was tied with ropes, her joints were dislocated and her muscles had been torn. She told them that she had been handcuffed and mistreated in many ways. After learning about the tortures she had been subjected to in the labor camp, her sister-in-law was full of tears. She said, "I could never imagine that my sister-in-law had been suffering so much. I could owe anybody money but not her."
A good friend of her sister-in-law is the wife of the director of a railway police station. Her sister-in-law told her friend the experience that the fellow practitioner had suffered in the labor camp and asked her friend, "How could the police do such immoral deeds?" The wife of the police director said, "My god! I wouldn't believe it had it not been the suffering of our friend. How could they call themselves policemen?"
