The Persecution of Falun Dafa Practitioner Mr. Sun Kelin
(Clearwisdom.net) On July 20, 1999, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and Jiang Zemin's regime initiated the persecution of Falun Dafa. However, despite the intense fabrications of lies and deceit, many clear-headed people did not believe and were not fooled by the Chinese Communist regime. Mr. Sun Kelin from Renzhao Town, Pingdu City, Shandong Province was one such person. He felt that since there were so many people practicing Falun Dafa, it must be really good and he looked at Falun Dafa with an open mind. He discovered a copy of the book Zhuan Falun and after reading it through, he wanted to learn Falun Dafa. Through reading Zhuan Falun and practicing the Falun Dafa exercises, Mr. Sun's body was freed of all illnesses within a short period of time. Moreover, he also began clarifying the truth about the beauty of Falun Dafa, persuading people not to believe the lies spread by the Communist regime.
On July 20, 2001, he and some other practitioners traveled to Beijing to seek justice for Falun Dafa. In Tiananmen Square, after the flag raising ceremony, he held up a banner proclaiming "Falun Dafa is Good" and shouted "Falun Dafa is good." He was soon surrounded by many police officers, but continued holding his banner aloft and shouting. After chasing him for quite some time, the police still could not capture him and resorted to shouting, "Catch the thief!" Passersby who understood the truth did not listen to them. Finally, after much effort, they managed to pin him down. He was then dragged into a police car by his hair. He was subsequently detained at a Tiananmen police substation. As he did not reveal his name or address during his detention, a young policeman brutally kicked his chest and beat him to the ground before kicking him in the head. Finally, by listening to the accent of the practitioner who was caught with him and finding an address in a small booklet, the police decided to send him to the Public Security Bureau in Qingdao City. Even so, Mr. Sun still refused to reveal his name and address, so he was hung up with his toes touching the ground and having a police officer stomp on them, and he had his forehead and ribs struck repeatedly with leather boots. After seeing him remain adamant, one police officer slashed his rib cage with metal tongs.
Two or three days later, he and a fellow practitioner were transferred to Pingdu City. When they passed Jinan City, they were handcuffed together, but they continued to send forth righteous thoughts, asking Master Li to help them, and they finally escaped. While Mr. Sun Kelin was using a public phone, an old man who did not understand the truth about Falun Dafa reported him to the authorities. Even after clarifying the truth to him, telling him not to believe the lies of the Communist regime and choose a good future for himself, the old man still refused to listen. As a result, Mr. Sun Kelin was detained in Pingdu Detention Center. During his detention, officers from Renzhao Police Station illegally barged into his house and took away his television. His wife tried to stop them and was badly beaten. There was also a policeman from the Pingdu Detention Center, around fifty years of age surnamed Yin, who went to Mr. Sun's house and tried to blackmail his wife out of a few thousand yuan. Fortunately, he did not succeeded in extorting any money from her.
In the detention center, Mr. Sun fell down and was injured. His skull was fractured. He woke up three days later in a hospital bed in the Pingdu Chinese Hospital. A kind person came over to tell him that the doctor thought that he was dying and nothing could save him. He knew that it was Master Li who saved his life. Even after suffering such a horrifying predicament, a police officer started to beat him while his hands and feet were still cuffed to the hospital bed.
When he was being held in the detention center, he was forced to do manual labor for long hours. Sometimes, he was also not allowed to sleep and had to suffer torture at the hands of police there. They also forced him to get money from his home and hand it over to them.
A few months later, he and another practitioner were illegally sentenced to four years in jail by the Pingdu Court. He was subsequently sent to Weibei Prison for one year. During that one year serving his illegal jail term, he was physically devastated and became extremely weak. His whole body was in pain and he could not sit still or lie down. It was only after a whole year that his body recovered slightly, and it took him fours years to fully recover.
After his release, the Communist regime still refused to leave him alone. They constantly sent police to harass him.
