Defending the Goodness of Falun Gong
(Minghui.org) When a senior official from the Anti-corruption Bureau went to his barbershop in December 2016, he saw a magazine with accurate information about Falun Gong. He said to the barber, “Falun Gong is against the Communist Party because those people who practice it besieged Zhongnanhai.”
“That’s not true,” the barber said. “Although you are a high-ranking officer, I know more about it than you do. They had to go there to seek justice because no local officials had the authority to act on their request. Could you have given them justice if they had visited your office?”
The official said that he could not.
“Someone puts Falun Gong publications outside my store on a regular basis,” the barber said. “When there aren't any customers, I read them. The more I read, the more I understand. The ‘Tiananmen self-immolation’ was an event staged and directed by the government. The government is also behind taking vital organs from living Falun Gong practitioners for transplant! Have you read any of those publications?”
The official said he hadn't.
The barber then briefly explained the Tiananmen self-immolation hoax and about the harvesting of organs from imprisoned Falun Gong practitioners against their will.
The Forbearance of a Practitioner
The barber recounted a true story about another regular customer, a Falun Gong practitioner. This customer's motorcycle was hit by a car, and she was thrown about 20 meters and experienced a momentary loss of vision. When she landed on the ground, her mind was still clear and she got up. She felt fine and could see again, so she went to pick up her motorcycle.
The driver was terrified. She told him that she was fine but asked him to help her take the motorcycle to a roadside mechanic to get repaired. The mechanic made a minor adjustment so the lady could move it, and she took it home.
The lady told the barber, “If I were not a Falun Gong practitioner, I probably would have been badly injured and hospitalized. I would have asked the driver for a large sum in compensation.”
The barber was very moved by her story and realized that Falun Gong really is good.
The official asked the barber if he practiced Falun Gong. The barber said no, he didn’t, but he knew that Falun Gong practitioners were good people.
Learning from Falun Gong Practitioners
He told the official another story. Initially, his landlady was not easy to deal with because she was very picky and annoyed him constantly. Then, about four or five years ago, she started to practice Falun Gong.
Everything about her changed. She recovered from her health problems and turned into a pleasant person. The barber said that he now enjoys renting her property.
He then said, “Chief, I shouldn’t have told you that my landlady practices Falun Gong. Please don’t tell anyone else. We should learn from Falun Gong practitioners and think about the welfare of other people.”
When the official's haircut was done, he smiled and left the shop.
Another customer who was sitting nearby commented, “You shouldn’t tell him so much about Falun Gong. You do know he is a government official.”
The barber said, “I’m not worried. That’s just how the conversation went. I couldn’t stop talking about it. Actually, I now understand how good Falun Gong is.”
