Case Description:
Mr. Peng Shikai, 83 years old, was a resident of Guzhi District, Tangshan City of Hebei Province. For many years he suffered from indigestion. He also had aching legs for over twelve years and was not able to stretch them straight out. After he began cultivation, all his illnesses disappeared. He could walk faster than an average young man, and was able to fold both of his legs in sitting meditation. After July 20, 1999, the village cadres pressured him to do other kinds of qigong exercises instead of Falun Gong. Mr. Peng said to them, "I will never give up practicing even if you give me a thousand dollars per month." Mr. Peng's daughter went to Beijing in 2000 to clarify the truth of Falun Gong. She was then detained and sent to a forced labor camp. Mr. Peng's son-in-law bailed her out with a large sum of money. After her return, she was put under surveillance. In July 2001, Mr. Peng's daughter was again arrested, humiliated, detained and sent to forced labor. Mr. Peng, who was previously healthy, suffered greatly both physically and emotionally. His family forbade him from studying the Fa and practicing the exercises, lest he would also be persecuted. He passed away on June 15, 2002.
