Mr. Ma Zaoling was over 70 years old, and was a Dafa practitioner in Xinji City, Hebei Province. After practicing Dafa, he became healthy in both body and mind. After the persecution began on July 20, 1999, he was threatened and harassed many times. Because his daughter insisted on practicing Falun Dafa, she was dismissed by her company. He was illegally detained and imprisoned on numerous occasions. His body and mind were severely harmed, and he died in February 2003.
