(Clearwisdom.net) Editors' Note: In both Western and Chinese culture, the principle of karmic retribution, that is, being held ultimately accountable for one's own actions, is widely accepted. The fundamental teaching of Falun Gong is the characteristic of the universe, "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance." The universe will reward actions that are in harmony with this principle, while actions such as beating, torturing and murdering people will incur karmic retribution. Stated another way, good deeds will be rewarded with good, while evildoings will meet due retribution. Articles such as this one are meant as a compassionate reminder of this principle to those who would commit wrongdoing. While many of those who persecute Falun Gong are merely "following orders," the universal law requires that they too be held responsible for their actions, and that only by reversing their course of wrongdoing may they escape retribution.

Shandong Province's Linyi University, formerly Linyi Normal College, located southeast of Yimeng Mountain District, is the only provincial undergraduate college in Shandong Province. Ever since Ding Fengyun became the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) secretary at this school in December 2010, for self-promotion and to compete for reputation and personal advancement, she has been actively involved in the persecution of Falun Gong. She initiated a variety of illegal activities intended to defame the founder of Falun Gong, Teacher Li Hongzhi, and to deprive teachers and students of their freedom of belief. Ding Fengyun has received karmic retribution for her misdeeds by suffering a severe leg injury.

Ding Fengyun, 54, a resident of Rushan, Shandong Province, had previously served in the governments of two counties as assistant secretary, secretary, magistrate, city committee standing member, propaganda department chief, and city social alliance chief. Prior to the CCP'S persecution of Falun Gong in 1999, she practiced Falun Gong at one time. She later gave up the practice, and in order pursue personal gain, she gave up her faith in Falun Gong and even became a major persecutor of Falun Gong.

On July 30, 2010, when Ding was directly in charge of Linyi's “Office for Building a Civilized City,” she sent out cell-phone messages smearing Falun Gong (cellphone message# 106559613) to a number of citizens. In August, after becoming director of the “Comprehensive Management Office” (another name for the 610 Office), she went on a spree of illegal harassment, ransacking homes, making arrests, and administering detention sentences and fines. Within about six months, in the city of Linyi more than eighty Falun Gong practitioners had been arrested and had their homes ransacked, including practitioners from Linyi University. Science Professor and entrepreneur, Wang Qingzhong, is still illegally detained, which alerted persecution chief Zhou Yongkang to take special interest in this matter.

In November 2010, while Ding Fengyun was in Beijing to receive an award for her role in the persecution, she slipped in a hotel bathroom, tearing her tendon and fracturing bones. She had to spend three to four months in a wheelchair.

Ever since Ding Fengyun became the CCP secretary at Linyi University, she worked closely with the 610 Office and the local brainwashing center to persecute Falun Gong. She initiated a series of illegal measures such as manipulating the Commission for Discipline and Inspection, the Propaganda Department, trade unions, the Communist Youth League, and the Security Office to defame Falun Gong. During this period of time, Ding Fengyun secretly detained a female student, a Dafa practitioner, at the brainwashing center for a month.

Starting on October 20, Ding Fengyun required that all teachers in the school be involved in the completion of exam questions that defamed Falun Gong. She staged an “educational exhibit” that slandered Falun Gong and its founder.

For personal renown and material gain, Ding Fengyun has been diligently following the CCP, causing a lot of teachers and students who have righteous thoughts to boycott her exam questions and the “educational exhibit.” Those students who were forced to see the display raised lots of questions about the Tiananmen Square self-immolation incident, staged by the CCP in 2001in order to turn public opinion against Falun Gong.

There is a saying, “Victimizers end up harming themselves.” Ding Fengyun has committed a huge crime in the persecution of Falun Gong, and will eventually be tried by history.
