Ms. Tai Bingxiu from Songyuan City, Jilin Province Dies from Persecution
(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Tai Bingxiu, a Falun Dafa practitioner from Songyuan City, Jilin Province, was 60 years old. She began practicing Falun Gong in 1997. Before practicing, she had many sicknesses and was very weak. Her sicknesses were quickly eliminated soon after she took up the practice. Although she had never learned to read, she quickly learned to read Zhuan Falun and other Dafa books because of her solid faith in Master and Falun Dafa.
On the morning of June 24, 2001, Ms. Tai picked up a banner with the words, "Truth, Compassion, Forbearance" on her way to a relative's house. She attached the banner to a wall, and was seen by the deputy director of the local police substation, who was following her. Ms. Tai was deceived into going to the police station and was detained there for 15 days.
Soon thereafter, the police ransacked her home three times, confiscated all her Falun Dafa books, and extorted more than one thousand yuan from her. She was forced to write a guarantee statement and was threatened with further torment. These actions severely damaged her health. After Ms. Tai was released, police continued to harass her, forced her to take a police photo, and took her fingerprints. Ms. Tai couldn't eat or sleep well, and became very thin. She passed out in her yard, and was found by her family members. When the ambulance came, she was suffering a heart attack. She passed away on November 2, 2001.
Ms. Tai's neighbors, Ms. Zhang Xiuhua and Ms. Sang (both in their 60's), changed the clothes on her body after death. They saw that Ms. Tai did not have any wounds or injuries, and that only her three front teeth (all false) were loose, perhaps caused by clenching her teeth in pain. After her body was cremated on the third day, local journalists forced the two of them to say that Ms. Tai had died from jumping from a building. At the time, many fellow practitioners believed that this is what happened. Hopefully those who have been deceived will clarify the truth after reading this article and make up for the loss.
