Xu Zhilian - 徐芝莲
Female practitioner Xu Zhilian, a teacher in the Fuqin Elementary School in Chengdu City, turned 31 years old this year. She worked very hard at her profession. Both parents and the school spoke highly of her, and every year she was voted "Excellent Teacher."
Xu Zhilian was a firm believer and practitioner of Falun Dafa. She never stopped practicing since she began in 1996; she spread Dafa whenever she had a chance and progressed very well in her cultivation. After the government began to persecute Falun Dafa on July 22, 1999, she went to Beijing three times to protect the Fa, and to clarify the truth to the government and the people. For doing so, she was detained and fined. Before she took off for Beijing once, her mother-in-law was worried, and tried to stop her from going by telling her that she would not look after her child. Xu took her 5-year-old child along with her to Beijing to rectify the Fa. Police arrested her in the vicinity of Tiananmen Square. She did not corporate with them and refused to tell the police her name and address and was released without any charges after a few days of illegal detention. Earlier this year, police spotted Xu and other two practitioners while they were posting and distributing Dafa materials. The two fellow practitioners were arrested. Luckily, Xu walked away. But she could not return home for a few days.
School was on winter break at that time. After classes started in February, Xu went back to teach, and was arrested and placed in handcuffs in front of her students in the classroom while she was teaching. She was detained in the Fuqin Police Station in Chengdu City. Xu's father visited her that day and asked her what she wanted to eat. Xu told him that she wanted to eat wontons. Her father bought the wontons for her in the marketplace. While eating, Xu was thinking about running away, "The evil police cannot arrested me; I have to escape; there is so much Dafa work to be done after I come back." She thought and thought. Police removed Xu's handcuff while she was eating. Seizing this opportunity, she walked away from the police station. Since then, however, Xu could not return to her home. She was wandering about as a homeless person.
On June 28, a rainy night, Xu came back home to visit her husband and child. That very evening, about 11 o'clock, the police from Jinniu District, Chengdu City, stormed their residence. They surrounded their home, fired three shots before they broke down the door and entered the home. Three policemen held Xu's husband. The others directly went to the second floor. In order not to be arrested by the wicked police, Xu jumped out of the window and landed on the roof of her neighbor's house. She slipped and fell to the ground below and broke her neck. She was still breathing. Four policemen lift her up and threw her into the police car, claiming they were going to send her to the emergency room, but refused her family members' request to accompany her. The next day, Xu's family members were notified that she had passed away. Her body is currently kept in Wenjiang County's funeral home.
We Dafa practitioners of Chengdu hereby issue a warning to all depraved individuals: using the excuse of "carrying out official business" from higher authorities to persecute Dafa practitioners; "to execute orders" to commits murder and other evil deeds by orders of the government will NOT become your protective umbrella to shield you from your responsibilities! The Law of the Universe determines that acts of kindness and evil have their consequences. Each individual will have to experience retribution for his involvement in committing foul deeds. Nazi war criminals, the accomplices of "The Gang of Four" during the Great Cultural Revolution were all put on trial. Moreover, infinite pain is waiting for you if you continue committing these acts against Dafa! Stop performing evil deeds, and do not become Jiang Zemin's accomplice!
