Mr. Xi Shun, 70, Suffers a Mental Collapse from Repeated Harassment by CCP Officials

December 24, 2006 |  

(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Xi Shun, 70, is a retired worker. He used to suffer from various illnesses such as coronary heart disease, brain arteriosclerosis and prostatitis. He had taken many medicines throughout the years, but still did not recover from the illnesses. After he started practicing Falun Gong in 1996, all of his illnesses were cured. Since then, he told everyone he met about the greatness of Falun Gong. He established a practice site at home and residents in the same village went to his house to do the exercises and study the Fa together. As they experienced the many benefits of practicing Falun Gong, it was a very happy and peaceful time for the whole group.

On July 20, 1999, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) began the persecution of Falun Gong. On October 1, 2000, Mr. Xi and several Falun Gong practitioners went to Beijing to appeal to the government and to explain the truth about Falun Gong. However, as soon as he arrived in Beijing, and before he had a chance to do anything, Mr. Xi was illegally arrested by the police. They threatened him before the town government, took him away and detained Mr. Xi in a basement. There was no bed to sleep on and there was only one stool. They did not give Mr. Xi any food nor did they notify his family. Mr. Xi's family had to explore a variety of channels before they found out that he was detained in the basement. The mayor and secretary of the town harassed him often and Mr. Xi was both physically and mentally abused.

Mr. Xi's body and mind weakened. His family asked the mayor and secretary to release him and after they extorted five thousand yuan from Mr. Xi's family without providing any documentation, Mr. Xi was finally released after fifteen days. For those fifteen days, the only food Mr. Xi ate was some food that was sent in by his family. After Mr. Xi was released, the mayor and secretary said, "He has money. Fining him five thousand yuan is too little. Let's go to get a drink."

Since then, Mr. Xi was so scared that he no longer dared to practice Falun Gong. There were people monitoring him and the police station constantly sent people to harass him. Mr. Xi was traumatized and his blood pressure increased after the constant harassment. In 2001, the police forced him to sign the three statements during a brainwashing session. They also forced Mr. Xi to go on trial and harassed him using various means. During this period (from 2000 to 2004), Mr. Xi's daughter, who is also a Falun Gong practitioner, was placed under house arrest twice, detained twice and sent to brainwashing classes twice.

In November 2004, Mr. Xi went to his daughter's house and witnessed his daughter being arrested and put into the brainwashing classes. The police broke into the house and forcibly dragged Mr. Xi's daughter away. He was severely traumatized. Since that day, he cried in his home every day and cried at whomever he saw. One month later, his daughter went to visit him after her release. He cried very hard and begged his daughter not to leave his home and said to his daughter that it was not safe for her to return home. His daughter comforted him and left. Mr. Xi suffered a nervous breakdown. He became afraid of people mentioning anything about Falun Gong. He always felt there were people outside monitoring him. He lay in bed and screamed, "Mommy, mommy." He was terrified and his family could not sleep with him screaming every night.

Now, Mr. Xi lies confined to his bed. He is mentally disturbed and his consciousness is unclear. He does not talk and shivers whenever he hears knocking on the door.

This is all due to the persecution of the evil CCP. An elderly man who had regained his health after practicing Falun Gong was reduced to such a state as a result of the persecution. His father was also persecuted to death by the evil party during the Cultural Revolution. Good is rewarded with good and evil is met with karmic retribution. The final day of the evil party is not far away. Let's welcome a new China without the evil CCP.
