Jin Changlan - 金常兰
(Minghui.org) Ms. Jin Changlan, 68, was from Weifang City. She learned the practice of Falun Dafa in 1996 and benefited both mentally and physically. After the CCP started to persecute Falun Gong in 1999, she held firm and believed in Master and Dafa. Because she continued to clarify the facts about Falun Gong, the Weifang Police frequently persecuted her.
On the morning of February 28, 2012, the Kuiwen District Police Department took officers from the Dayu Police Station and illegally arrested Ms. Jin at the gate of her dorm. They took her to the Dayu Police Station and then returned to ransack her home.
They seized her Dafa books and informational flyers and booklets. In the afternoon, her family went to the police station and brought her home. A few hours later, the Kuiwen District Police Department took four officers from the Dayu Police Station and broke into Ms. Jin's home again without a warrant and used brute force to arrest her. They took her to the Weifang Brainwashing Center.
Gao Xinchang, the head of the brainwashing center, threatened Ms. Jin and slandered Dafa. Ms. Jin was very saddened by this and her blood pressure rose. She then began to convulse and have a heart attack. When the ambulance arrived, the ambulance technicians asked the police why they waited so long to call for help. Gao Xinchang did not dare answer.
After the hospital staff stabilized Ms. Jin, she returned home. From that time on she felt sick. She passed away on May 31, 2012
The miracle of learning to read Zhuan Falun
Ms. Jin Changlan was warm and helpful. She never had the opportunity to go to school, so she remained illiterate. She could not even recognize phone numbers. In 1996 when she started to practice Falun Gong, she went to the home of a fellow practitioner to watch Master's lecture in Jinan City. She saw Master smiling on TV. She said she saw that His hair was blue and curly and asked the practitioners there why that was. They were very surprised and told her that she had a great predestined relationship with Master.
When Jin Changlan studied the Fa, she asked how to pronounce each Chinese character. Oftentimes she asked whoever was passing by in hallways or on the street. One night she had a dream. When she was studying the Fa, an elderly man with tied up grey hair appeared in front of her. He waved a duster in his hand and smiled towards her. He demonstrated hand signs to her and taught her how to read. After she woke up, she could read Zhuan Falun. Wow! The Chinese characters stepped out of the book line by line. Under the characters was a golden bar that guided her. Gradually she was able to recognize each Chinese character! From that dream on, she was able to read Zhuan Falun by herself. Later, she was able to read Master's lectures from other countries. However, when the same Chinese characters appeared elsewhere, in everyday society she could not recognize them.
Persecuted multiple times for clarifying the truth
In the spring of 2002, she carried a big bag of Dafa materials to her hometown in a rural area to clarify the facts. She was reported and taken to the local police department. They cuffed her to a chair. The handcuffs were so tight that they pinched her flesh. She asked the police to loosen them. The police made fun of her and said, “Let your Master open them for you!” Then she thought, “Master, help me!” With this thought, immediately the handcuffs opened by themselves. The officers who ridiculed her were very surprised. She was eventually released to her family.
After the CCP started to persecute Falun Gong, she went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong, to clarify the truth locally, to distribute informational materials, and to help people quit the CCP. Everyday, rain or shine, she would do this. Over the course of a decade, she was arrested many times. Once the police hit her and knocked one of her teeth out, causing her mouth to bleed. No matter what the circumstances, she never stopped clarifying the facts about Falun Gong.
Ms. Jin's sudden death was the result of long term, relentless persecution. She was arrested multiple times and had lived in fear in an unstable environment for a long time. The arrest and ransacking of her home on February 28, and being forced to attend brainwashing sessions, finally led to her death. The Kuiwen District Police Department, the Domestic Security Bureau, the Weifang City Brainwashing Center, and Gao Xinchang, all participants persecuting her, are directly responsible for her death and should be investigated and tried.
