Facing the Evil with Righteous Thoughts
February 16, 2003
(Clearwisdom.net) I am an ordinary farmer woman. In the middle of September 2001, I heard that people from the local police station and the town government broke into Dafa practitioners' homes to arrest them without a warrant. Two female practitioners were brutally beaten for not cooperating with the evil. One 18-year-old practitioner's nose bled from the beating, and she urinated blood for several days afterwards.
At that time I understood that persecution against any Dafa practitioner was persecuting Dafa. I therefore went to the town government office to tell them the facts about Dafa, requesting them to release the detained fellow practitioners and to stop persecuting the two young female practitioners. They immediately called in over a dozen young men to brutally beat me. I shouted, "Falun Dafa is the righteous Fa. Dafa teaches people to be kind and moral. Don't be deceived by the lies." They beat and kicked me, and hit me mercilessly with their knees and elbows for over ten minutes. After that, my whole body was swollen and painful, and I urinated blood for several days.
I kept telling them the facts, even after they beat me. Township Party Secretary Li yelled, "If you continued to defend Falun Gong, we will beat you some more." I said, "Is it the government's job to persecute good people?"
They cuffed my hands and forcibly took photographs of me. I refused to cooperate. They sent me to a detention center for a 15-day detention. On the way to the detention center I clarified the truth to the driver who had earlier beaten me mercilessly. That driver scolded me in return, but I told him about the principle that good would be rewarded with good and evil would be punished with evil. He didn't believe me. Several days later, he suffered karmic retribution.
The local police station chief was disrespectful to Dafa and made malicious remarks against Dafa. He also suffered retribution later. One vicious police officer who had always brutally tortured practitioners was later killed by some criminals. The township head insulted Dafa, saying that he did not believe that good will be rewarded with good and evil punished with evil. Afterwards, someone stole his motorcycle, and he suffered a bullet wound in the leg from the incident.
After I was held in the detention center for 15 days, I was sent back to the township government and illegally imprisoned there for seven more days.
On the first evening back in the township government, several guards planned to sexually abuse us women practitioners. I detected their horrid intent in advance. At around midnight, when they opened our door, I immediately shouted, "What are you doing here?" They ended up sneaking out without doing anything. They also put a lot of pressure on us to brainwash us, compelling practitioners to read materials that slandered Dafa, and to write a "repentance statement" and "guarantee" to give up practicing. We firmly resisted the persecution. Because we refused to cooperate, they threatened us and stopped giving us food for two days in order to force us to write the statements. Later, we went on a hunger strike for three days. During these days I recognized Teacher's hint and realized that we would leave here soon. The day the local police station chief asked us to leave, I clearly stated, "I will not leave here unless you promise you will not slander Dafa, and will not go to Dafa practitioners' homes in the future to arrest them." The village public security chief promised me that they would not do so anymore. That same day they released us.
