Young Piano Teacher Detained for Giving Out Falun Gong Materials
(Minghui.org) A young piano teacher was arrested at work on November 26, 2016, after a student’s parents reported her for giving them a desk calendar bearing information about Falun Gong, a spiritual discipline being persecuted by the Chinese communist regime.
Ms. Shan Shan started practicing Falun Gong in late 2015, when she was at the lowest point in her life. Even though she holds a bachelor’s degree from the China Conservatory of Music, she wasn’t able to find a well-paying job, and the birth of her child aggravated her financial concerns.
Not long into her Falun Gong practice, Ms. Shan recovered from her post-childbirth complications and also stopped complaining about her job situation. She said, “Falun Gong is what I’ve been looking for all my life.” She follows the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance and does her best in teaching her students.
She gave the parents of a student a copy of the aforementioned calendar, only to be reported to police. She remains at Haidian District Detention Center.
