Mr. Xue Yutian Forced to Give Up Practicing Falun Dafa and Passed Away from Severe Illnesses
Mr. Xue Yutian, who was around fifty-six years old, lived in Gujialing Village, Wangjiazhuang Town, Anqiu City in Shandong Province. Before Mr. Xue Yutian started to practice Falun Dafa, he was so ill that he had totally lost his ability to take care of himself. In order to treat his illnesses, he was overloaded with debt. In May 1997, Mr. Xue Yutian started to practice Falun Dafa. He gradually regained his health and he could do almost all kinds of farm work by the autumn of 1997. When the Jiang regime started to openly persecute Falun Dafa on July 20, 1999, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) members from the Gujialing Village of Wangjiazhuang Town tried to force Mr. Xue Yutian to give up Falun Dafa numerous times, leading to the recurrence of Mr. Xue's old illnesses. Finally, Mr. Xue Yutian passed away in the middle of November 2005.
After July 20, 1999, the CCP members from Wangjiazhuang Town and Gujialing Village of Anqiu City went to Mr. Xue Yutian's home to harass and force Mr. Xue Yutian to give up practicing Falun Dafa. Less than a month after he stopped practicing, Mr. Xue Yutian's old illness symptoms returned. He became bedridden, lost the ability to take care of himself, and needed his wife to feed him. When the CCP Secretary of the village learned of the situation, his conscience was awakened and he went to Mr. Xue Yutian's home. He told Mr. Xue, "You became healthy because of practicing Falun Dafa. You should hurry up and practice again." Mr. Xue Yutian started to practice Falun Dafa again. His health gradually recovered and he could work again.
In October 2000, out of fear that Mr. Xue Yutian might go to Beijing to appeal, CCP officials in Wangjiazhuang Town pressured Mr. Xue Yutian's younger brother Xue Yulin, who is the head of the town Birth Planning Office, with the statement that if Mr. Xue Yutian continued to practice Falun Dafa, then they would dismiss Xue Yulin from his post. Xue Yulin then went back home to gather his brothers and cousins with a total of over ten people, who all went to Mr. Xue Yutian's house to force him to give up his belief in Truth, Compassion, and Forbearance. They also forcibly broke open the lock with tools and stole all of the Falun Dafa books. Mr. Xue Yutian was forced to give up practicing Falun Dafa. In January 2001, Mr. Xue again had severe illness symptoms and lost the ability to take care of himself. Later, after communicating with fellow practitioners, Mr. Xue Yutian started to study the Fa and he regained his health half a year later.
In the spring of 2003, in the environment of the CCP's inhumane persecution of Falun Dafa, Mr. Xue Yutian again was forced to give up practicing Falun Dafa. For the third time, his body showed the illness symptoms. He was no longer able to move, and he even needed other people's help to roll over. He also lost his vision and was bedridden for over two years. He finally passed away in the middle of November 2005.
