An Open Letter to Those Involved in the Persecution
(Clearwisdom.net) I know that you are involved in the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners. Therefore, I feel that I must write this letter to you, as I truly believe that every living thing has an innate compassion. Over the years, the characteristics of truthfulness and innocence, inherent in everyone, have gradually become deeply hidden within some people's hearts. However, after understanding the truth and knowing the dreadful consequences of taking part in doing evil, would there still be anyone so foolish as to destroy their own future?
The founder of Falun Dafa taught us to treasure every living thing with compassion, and this includes you. It includes everyone who has misunderstood Falun Gong and even those who are currently still involved in persecuting Falun Dafa. In order to save those people have been deceived by the slanderous lies, numerous Falun Gong practitioners have sacrificed everything they have and many have even lost their lives clarifying the truth of Dafa and the persecution. Even while suffering from inhumane persecution, Falun Dafa practitioners have never resorted to violence or hatred towards the people who persecute them. We are always looking forward to the day when those who are being used and manipulated by Jiang Zemin and his followers will give up their evildoing in order to choose a bright and glorious future for themselves.
You might say that it is your job that requires you to get involved in the persecution. However, when you meet Falun Dafa practitioners, who follow the principles of "Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance," you will see that they are truly good people. You will see for yourself how they are different from the false reports fabricated by the media. Will your true character remain unmoved? We all know that, after learning the truth about Falun Dafa from many years of close observation and from thinking clearly about the situation, many people who were deceived in the past arrived at the point where they were truly sorry for their misdeeds and misunderstandings about Falun Dafa. They deeply regret their actions against Dafa and now they are doing their best to spread the truth about Falun Dafa. They are hoping to make amends for their past wrongdoing. In China, traditional people believe that slandering the Buddha Fa will bring about divine retribution.
How about you? Are you cruel enough to continue to persecute this group of compassionate and selfless practitioners? Are you still willing to work for Jiang's group? Even if you are "brave," will you still insist on betraying your life to follow this regime down a path of no return? Currently, every country in the world knows that Falun Dafa is good and strongly condemns this persecution. The lawsuits against Jiang Zemin are increasing throughout the world. Even the Chinese central government is discussing the issue of restoring Falun Gong's name. The principal debate is about who will be the scapegoats of this persecution. Jiang himself proposed executing some policemen in order to appease the anger of the public. This is expected to prevent the public from blaming the central government for the atrocities of the persecution.
However, this time, they can forget about deploying this same old trick, used in the past after so many of China's political movements came to an end. Anyone involved in the persecution, directly or indirectly, has already accumulated a lot of karma, or sin. Unless this person repents and tries to atone for his mistakes, he can never escape the retribution of the law and of Heaven. It is those people currently at the front line persecuting Falun Dafa practitioners who are truly foolish and pitiful. They will be the first to experience Heaven's retribution. Moreover, even the public has witnessed their brutal persecution of Falun Gong practitioners, and thus there will be no escape for them.
Are you really willing to be so wicked that you are abandoned by humans and gods? Do not think that using the excuse of "following orders" will allow you to push the blame away. You are able to think logically and make a personal choice about whether to follow good or evil. In the aftermath of the Cultural Revolution, Beijing's police chief, Liu Chuanxin, immediately committed suicide. He knew that his hands were stained with the blood of so many that he could never escape the anger of the public. However, the Chinese Communist Party was the first to want him assassinated in order to save themselves by blaming everything on him. At that time, a large group of police officers who had taken part in the persecution of veteran cadres were secretly brought to Yunnan and shot. In this group of officers, there were 17 army personnel and 793 police officers. All they did was "following orders," but were any of them spared death in the end?
The perpetrators of the persecution might appear powerful now, but how many days do they have left? The Fascist military once dominated Eurasia, but within a few years it was totally decimated by the force of justice. It has been sixty years, and currently there are still professionals around the world who track down Nazi war criminals. These professionals swore to track these criminals down to pay for the countless innocent lives they had taken. These criminals will never be able to sleep in peace. The "Gang of Four" from the Cultural Revolution once dominated China, but they turned into criminals within one short day. What do you think of your little privileges and status when compared to these criminals? Do you think that your life will be forever peaceful and fine? If in the near future you are placed on trial because of your involvement in the persecution, do you think that the money you gained from the Chinese Communist Party will really be useful then?
Please think about it! Your actions in the face of evil are of utmost importance. Remember that, "What goes around comes around," and there is divine retribution in this world! If you choose to follow your conscience and justice, then you will have chosen a bright future for yourself. Therefore, please protect and treat well those detained Falun Dafa practitioners. Moreover, you can also help to clarify the truth about Falun Dafa to the people around you. The chance to make amends for your mistakes will not be available forever, so do not lose this opportunity or you might regret it for all eternity. Please think seriously about this!
