The Lesser-Known Readers of Minghui.org
(Minghui.org) The Minghui.org website is public and available for everyone to read. It covers many topics, including news and culture, and many non-practitioners read Falun Dafa practitioners' cultivation experience-sharing articles.
In 2002, I was imprisoned for practicing Falun Dafa. Back then, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) was frequently broadcasting the Tiananmen self-immolation hoax on TV to slander Falun Dafa. Many people were misled and began to fear and hate Dafa and practitioners.
“The Tiananmen self-immolation incident was staged by the CCP to frame Falun Dafa practitioners,” a new inmate in his 20s said one day. I was amazed and asked how he knew that. He said he used to frequent an Internet cafe. One day he noticed a sticker on a wall outside with information about how to get around the CCP's firewall and visit Minghui.org. He thus read about the self-immolation incident, learned a lot about Falun Dafa, and felt it was a good practice.
When he was imprisoned, the guards had him monitor practitioners. He never gave us a hard time. I was touched that he had such a clear understanding of Dafa while the brutal persecution was so intense. I appreciated the practitioners who risked their lives to post these stickers.
I was imprisoned again in 2014. A guard was arranged to force practitioners to give up their belief. He said he often browsed Minghui.org and practitioners' other websites. He said he understood some things about Falun Dafa and tried to avoid participating in the persecution. He was later transferred to another department.
Master Li, the founder of Falun Dafa, said,
“And actually, even right now many major media, the intelligence agencies of most every country, and the organizations and individuals in each country that care about human rights in China are all visiting the Minghui website, and following it with interest.” (“Fa Teaching Given at the Fa Conference Marking the Tenth Anniversary of the Minghui Website’s Founding”)
A State Security spy told practitioner David after agreeing to renounce his CCP membership, “I visit the Minghui website every day.” The spy said that at first he visited the Minghui website to collect information about Falun Dafa and learn about practitioners' situations in order to carry out the CCP’s persecution policy.
But as he kept visiting the website and reading the articles, he gradually changed his prejudice against Falun Dafa and resolved his misunderstandings. He told David that he had read Zhuan Falun, the main book of Falun Dafa's teachings, several times. He read Master Li’s new teachings as soon as they were posted on Minghui.org.
When the novel coronavirus began to spread rapidly in the U.S., a local practitioner did not understand and asked David, “The U.S. has started to sanction the CCP and supports Falun Dafa. The president also met with a practitioner. Master lives in New York. Why is the coronavirus pandemic so bad in New York?”
David could not answer. The following day, the spy asked David, “Have you seen Master's new article, ‘Stay Rational’? The plague eliminates CCP members and those who uphold it,” the spy continued. “The pandemic is so bad in the U.S. People ask why New York is affected the most.”
The spy explained that he was not surprised the pandemic spread in major cities like New York. “Many people have no idea that the CCP has focused on infiltrating the U.S. New York is the most heavily infiltrated. I went to the U.S. to carry out such tasks several times.”
He told David, “You have done well. Keep up the good work. Do not retreat. If there were more people like you in China, the situation here would be much better.”
He said he agreed with articles on Minghui.org about the CCP’s inevitable destruction by the divine. “From the CCP’s history and current behavior, it is time for the Party to end,” he said.
