(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Tang Zhiqiang worked at the Wenxing Chemical Fiber Textile Factory in Shuangliu County, Sichuan Province. He changed from being a disabled person who could not take care of himself into a healthy and confident person after practicing Falun Gong. Because he persisted in his belief in Falun Dafa, the lawless Communist Party officials illegally detained him, ransacked his home, and threatened and harassed him, which caused his health to deteriorate. Mr. Tang passed away on December 9, 2005.

Tang Zhiqiang was 40 years old, suffered from hemiplegia and could not take care of himself before he practiced Falun Gong. Soon after he obtained Dafa on September 20, 1996, all of his illnesses disappeared and he became healthy. People who knew him said that he changed into a different person. Many other people started practicing Falun Gong after observing the changes in him.

After the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) began persecuting Falun Gong on July 20, 1999, the factory security officials often monitored Tang Zhiqiang's residence. They took his Dafa books away whenever they found them. Several times when he was writing Dafa articles from memory, the officials saw him and took him to the security section. Tang Zhiqiang clarified the truth wherever he went. With normal channels of protest and appeal denied to Falun Gong practitioners, Mr. Tang posted words clarifying the truth about Falun Gong on utility poles, walls, and at the marketplace. The perpetrators from the factory security section detained him several times, as he was identified as a main persecution target in the factory.

On March 29, 2004, the police arrested Tang Zhiqiang when he was making truth clarification materials. The police officers took turns beating, kicking and insulting him throughout the night. They sent Tang Zhiqiang to a detention center and held him there for more than five months. While going through the medical parole procedure, the officers from the police department struck him in the back at an acupressure point, which immediately caused him to lose the ability to take care of himself. He could not even open or close a door. While being held at the detention center, Tang Zhiqiang was also beaten and kicked. He was physically and mentally devastated.

After Mr. Tang was released on medical parole, lawless CCP officials still monitored his residence. They ransacked his home, threatened and harassed him, which caused his condition to quickly deteriorate. Tang Zhiqiang passed away on December 9, 2005.
