Malaysia: Practitioners Hold Events to Oppose the Persecution in China
(Minghui.org) Practitioners held events across Malaysia to oppose the persecution, including marches, rallies, and candlelight vigils.
Holding up pictures of practitioners who have died as a result of persecution, practitioners in Klang held a march to expose the persecution.
Local resident Ms. Lin Licheng was shocked by the mistreatment practitioners have suffered for their beliefs, especially forced organ harvesting. She was glad to hear that former communist leader Jiang Zemin has been sued for persecuting Falun Gong and signed a petition to support that effort.
Mr. Chen Shengfa, 60, said that he knew Falun Gong was good for its practitioners and society at large. “A person needs to follow his conscience. It is wrong for Jiang to suppress innocent practitioners like this.”
A candlelight vigil was held at Kompleks Sukan Pandamaran in the evening. Small business owner Helen said that it was hard to imagine how a gentle meditation could face such a harsh persecution in today's world. Coming from Indonesia and now living in Malaysia, she said that what is happening in China violates basic human rights. “No matter who you are or where you live, there is no excuse to ignore such a tragedy,” she said.
Another candlelight vigil started in the afternoon on July 16 at Adda Heights Park in Johor Bahru, the third largest city in Malaysia. Many passersby stopped to read posters and talked with practitioners, asking about the persecution.
Many people signed petitions calling for a stop to the atrocities. They include people from China, Indian, and Malaysia.
“Such a crime must stop. Please keep it up and you have my support,” said a woman to practitioners.
Practitioners attended a rally in front of the Chinese Embassy on July 20. A letter was also delivered to the embassy to protest the persecution.
In front of pedestrians and some local officials, practitioners reviewed how much benefit practitioners have received from the practice of Falun Gong and the serious consequences of the 18-year-long massive persecution.
“We Chinese believe in good is rewarded with good and evil meets with evil,” one practitioner said at the rally. “We hope Chinese officials will stop blindly following Jiang's persecution policy. Making the right decision will benefit you and your future.”
