(Minghui.org) Ms. Feng Ruiying, a resident of Jianping County, Liaoning Province, was arrested and had her home ransacked on November 18, 2021 for practicing Falun Dafa, a mind-body discipline that has been persecuted by the Chinese communist regime since 1999. She is currently held at the Chaoyang City Detention Center and facing prosecution after her arrest was approved on December 3. Her two daughters wrote to the authorities, urging them to release Ms. Feng. Below is their appeal letter.

***Dear Officers,

My name is Zhu Shengnan and my sister is Feng Yuzhu. Our mother is Feng Ruiying. We live in Beishan Village, Kuidesu Town, Jianping County, Chaoyang City, Liaoning Province. We live with our father, mother, grandfather and grandmother. Our family makes a living by farming, while my sister and I are working out-of-town.

My grandfather has cerebellar atrophy and is deaf. Grandma has had two surgeries – the first to remove a section of her intestine, and the second time was after she had an intestinal obstruction. Now she has to wear a bag around her waist to collect her waste. Our family relied on my mother, Feng Ruiying, to care for our grandparents.

After I was born, my mom suffered constant pain in her arms, joints and back. Coming from a poor farming family, she couldn’t afford the needed medical treatment. The illness and poverty caused her much mental distress and life was very hard for her.

Until one day, she came across Falun Dafa. Without spending a penny, her illness disappeared. From then on, her life underwent tremendous changes. She became a different person, living by the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance. She is happy every day.

My mom gave the best to me and my sister, by introducing Falun Dafa to us. This isn’t something that can be bought and is more precious than any possessions. Mom said that Falun Dafa is a superior Buddha School practice, and that even if we do not practice it, we and our future generations will be blessed.

Another thing my mother did for us was to help us quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). When we joined the Party, we made the vow to “follow the Party” and “devote our lives to it.” Mom warned us long ago that a catastrophe will strike the world at some point and take out those who had vowed to follow the CCP. She said that no dynasty will last forever and that the catastrophe is meant to wipe out the CCP for what it has done to the Chinese people. When Heaven eliminates it, those who’ve vowed to follow it will have to go with it.

I feel we are truly blessed to have such a wonderful mother who told us how to avoid the catastrophe by quitting the CCP and remembering that “Falun Dafa is good.” She has given us the most valuable things in the world. Thank you, Mom!

But darkness befell our happy family on November 18, 2021, when out of the blue, Mom was seized by Qian Youwang of the Jianping County Domestic Security Office and Wang Xueying of the Kuidesu Town Police Station. Mom was doing housework in the kitchen, when they pushed her into a police car and took her away. Now, Mom is locked up in the Chaoyang Detention Center, and the Jianping County Procuratorate has approved her arrest.

Upon hearing about Mom’s arrest, my sister and I cried so hard. We really don’t understand what law Mom has violated. The police are here to catch bad people. My mom is not a bad person. But why did the police arrest such a good person? Dear officers, please tell us: our mother taught us to be a good person, to follow Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance. She has always taught us this way. But now she is locked up for just that. I believe that all parents in the world will give the best to their children. Is there anything better than Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance?

For more than twenty years, Falun Dafa practitioners sentenced for their faith have been severely persecuted in prisons across China. They are tortured, beaten to disability, mental breakdown, or death. They are forced to do hard labor, and even have their organs removed when they are still alive. According to available statistics, 4,721 Falun Dafa practitioners as of now have been persecuted to death. Please take a look at these photos of the deceased Falun Dafa practitioners.

If my mother were to be unjustly sentenced to prison because of you, and she suffers the same fate as the practitioners in these photos, can you live the rest of your life in peace? You are probably also parents, and you have your own children. How would you feel if your own children suffered the tragedy of losing their parents? What a pain in the heart! Please have some empathy for us.

I believe you have the ability and wisdom to help us and free our mother. If you are able to do so, you would have done the best thing in the world, because you would have upheld your conscience and can tell good from evil. When you help innocent Falun Gong practitioners and their children, Heaven will remember your good deeds and will give you great blessings.

Please release our dear mother Feng Ruiying. Thank you!

Zhu Shengnan and Feng Yuzhu
