  1999年7月22日国家宣布“法轮大法研究会”及其操纵的“法轮功”组织为非法组织后,我们同“法轮功”邪教组织的这场政治斗争,已经取得了决定性的胜利。摧毁了“法轮功”组织面上的指挥系统和组织体系被。基本查清了“法轮功”邪教组织的骨干。揭批了李洪志的歪理邪说和“法轮功”组织的政治本质及其严重的社会危害。绝大多数“法轮功”练习者已经觉醒。中国在打击邪教,维护人权的正义事业中,取得了成效,积累了经验。
 
  然而,李洪志这个践踏人权、跑到美国去的邪教头目,继续负隅顽抗,通过国际互联网和其他渠道发布指令,煽动境内一些顽固分子借机滋事。并且,摇身一变把自己打扮成一个“人权卫士”,与国际反华势力相勾结,颠倒是非,倒打一耙,把中国取缔“法轮功”邪教、维护人权的正义行动,诬蔑为“侵犯人权”、“干涉信仰自由”,在国际上造势,企图使“法轮功”问题国际化,挟洋人以反对自己的祖国。掀起一股不小的反华浪潮。

  什么是人权?宪法所赋于的公民的生存权、健康权、教育权、言论、新闻、出版自由权、宗教信仰自由权等等,属于人权范畴,必须得到维护。对于一个国家和民族来说,生存权和发展权又是最基本的人权。振兴中华,使中华民族自立于世界民族之林,只有发展生产力,增强综合国力,提高全体国民的物质和文化生活水平,公民的其他权利才能得到保障。

  让我们看看李洪志和“法轮功”组织的所作所为,我们同“法轮功”邪教组织斗争所已经取得的成效,究竟孰是孰非,人们会一目了然。

  一、“法轮功”侵害民族和国家的发展权

  生存权、发展权是最基本的人权。一个民族和国家要生存、要发展并且保障公民其他基本权利,只有发展生产力,增强综合国力,提高人民群众的物质和文化生活水平。而要做到这一点,就必须发展教育、科学技术和文化事业,使人民群众掌握科学的世界观、方法论,掌握现代文化科学知识,提高全民族的思想、文化和道德素质。而李洪志及其“法轮大法”与国家所提倡的发展教育、科学和文化事业,提高全民族的思想、文化和道德素质完全背道而驰。

  李洪志一方面肆意攻击现代科学,胡说:“人类现在的科学实质上是站在一个错误的基点上发展起来的,对宇宙、对人类、对生命的认识都是错误的,所以在修炼界我们修炼的人根本就不承认现在的科学,认为它是个错误。”(《法轮佛法——在美国讲法》第39至44页)他甚至颠倒黑白,胡说“科学邪教”。反对人们学习现代科学知识。另一方面,他却把“法轮大法”吹嘘成“宇宙大法”、“超常科学”。他说,“法轮大法”“是最精深的,他是世界上一切学说中最玄奥、超常的科学。”“真善忍”是“根本佛法”,是“宇宙特性”,一切自然现象和社会现象不过是“真善忍”在“不同层次的不同论述”,万事万物都是由“真善忍”构成的,“空气微粒、石头、木头、土、钢铁、人体,一切物质中都存在着‘真、善、忍’这种特性。”(《转法轮》第1至12页)他要求“法轮功”练习者通过各种形式千百遍地学习、抄写、背诵他的书。个人学,集体学,还举行“学法”、“弘法”交流会等,交流学习心得体会。他在《法轮大法义解》一书中推广长春“万人背书”的经验。他说:长春练习者“就是坐在那儿开始学,不用书,他从头开始背,停下,另一个接着背。后来又发展成抄书。如果抄错一个字就全部重来,全部重新抄。”“法轮功”组织就是按照这些办法用李洪志的歪理邪说取代真正科学知识。对“法轮功”练习者进行彻底“洗脑”,以实现他们对练习者的精神控制。

  李洪志在刚刚起家时,确曾吹嘘过练习“法轮功”可以“祛病健身”,而且还装模做样“发功”给人“治病”。许多“法轮功”练习者正是抱着祛病健身的目的误入“法轮功”练功行列的。值得指出的是,即使在当时他就宣称,“法轮大法”“不是低层次祛病健身的气功”,只练动作不是他的“法轮大法”。他甚至把那些只练动作,不“学法”的人说成“是在传邪法”。他一再强调“法轮大法”“重在修心性”,“修是第一位的”。所谓“修”就是“学法”。“学法”就是看他的书、看他“讲法”的录像带、听他“讲法”的录音带。就是用李洪志的歪理邪说对练习者“洗脑”,以取代真正的科学知识,使“法轮功”练习者的精神和行为完全被李洪志及其歪理邪说所控制,失去思想自由,丧失辨别是非的能力,成为任李洪志和“法轮功”邪教组织所摆布、驱使的工具。所谓“练功”“祛病健身”都不过是他诱骗人参加“法轮功”邪教一件美丽的外衣和甜蜜的诱耳。


  许多练习者自从练上了“法轮功”,花了相当多时间和精力看李洪志的书,看录像带,听录音带,荒废了学习,影响本职工作。许多练习者对家人和亲朋的劝说不仅听不进去,反而觉得这些人是常人,业力太大,缘分太浅,甚至是受另外空间“魔”驱使,来动摇他们对“大法”的坚定。因此淡漠了亲情,影响甚至断绝了与家人、亲朋的正常亲情关系,造成了许多家庭亲朋不睦。不少人相信李洪志说的人类道德已经沦丧到了危险边沿,地球上充满了“罪恶”、将要“爆炸”之类的邪说,认为不需要对社会承担任何责任,唯有自己修炼,提高“层次”,尽快“脱离”这个罪恶的地方,才能“得正果”,“成圆满”。因而,心里只有“法轮功”,周围一切与自己无关,待同事冷若冰霜,对国家大事不闻不问。不少人痴迷于李洪志的歪理邪说,把它看作是“宇宙的最高真理”,把李洪志看作“宇宙最高的神”,不敢对李洪志有半点不敬,甚至不敢直呼其名,否则担心受到惩罚,会“形神全灭”。李洪志及其歪理邪说完全占领了练习者的身心。因而,一切听任李洪志和“法轮功”组织的摆布,不惜为李洪志和“法轮功”组织效力卖命。有的人为了“护法”,全然置社会安定和国家法律于不顾,参加了围攻新闻单位、党政机关等聚众事件,做出非法违法的事情。即使走到这一步,他们还不以为耻,反以为荣,不觉可悲,反认为是在经受“考验”、提高“层次”。那些中毒很深的练习者,由于长期沉迷于李洪志的歪理邪说和“法轮功”所营造的与社会隔离的环境中,完全失去了正常人的思想模式,丧失了对是非、善恶、好坏、荣辱、正义与非正义等等的正确判断能力。有的整天懵懵懂懂,有的精神失常,有的自残、自杀,有的参与非法违法活动,有的甚至走上杀人犯罪道路。


  少年儿童正处在长身体、长知识的时期,他们阅历浅,思想不成熟,如果他们也被诱骗练起“法轮功”,迷上了李洪志的歪理邪说,将对他们的身心健康造成极大的伤害,后果不堪设想。例如,河北省承德市不满18岁李亭,因练“法轮功”走火入魔,杀死了自己的亲生父母。李亭的家原本是一个和睦温馨的家,李亭也是一个听话懂事的孩子。1997年因为没有考上重点中学,思想苦闷,避暑山庄偶然看到有人在练“法轮功”,出于好奇也加入了练功行列。这个缺乏社会阅历、尚无是非判断能力的少年,受李洪志歪理邪说的愚弄,逐渐达到痴迷的程度。床头贴上了李洪志的“法像”,购买了“法轮功”书籍,沉迷于李洪志的歪理邪说而不能自拔。后来,发展到神情恍惚,出现幻视、幻觉,称自己“开了天目”,能时常看到“燃烧的火球”,等等。李亭的母亲发现儿子精神不正常,带领他到北京精神病院诊治,他竟死活不进医院大门,硬说自己没病。他认为自己已经“悟出了宇宙真理”,就是“佛”了。同时,认为父母是“魔”,他要“除掉两个魔”,“度魔成佛”。1999年3月20日凌晨,李亭趁父母熟睡,用30多厘米的尖刀杀死了自己的亲生父母,演出了一幕灭绝人性的惨剧。李洪志和“法轮功”邪教组织不仅葬送了少年李亭美好的前程,而且制造了一起血案,毁掉了一个幸福的家庭。


  李洪志和“法轮功”邪教组织的这种倒行逆驶,不仅违反人性,违反人们对真理的追求,毒害人们的心灵,使人们放弃对现实美好生活的热爱,追求那虚无飘渺的“法轮世界”;而且,影响了社会安定,危害国家和民族的利益。几百万人处于迷信愚昧的精神状态,已经是民族的一个悲剧。如果出现如李洪志所说那样“圆满”的“壮举”,世界各地邪教谋杀群众的惨剧就会在中国的重演。李洪志在欧洲法会上“讲法”时说:“我也想在你们圆满的时候给人类带来一个壮举”,“叫所有大法弟子不管要不要身体,都带着身体飞上天,不要身体的在空中虹化掉,然后飞走。这样会造成一种历史上从来没有的辉煌,给人留下一个深刻的教训。人不相信神,让神真实的体现给人看。”(《法轮佛法——在欧洲法会上讲法》第94至95页)每一个思维正常的人都可以想见,这是一种多么可怕的情景!如果听任“法轮功”邪教继续蔓延,必将把国家和民族推向落后愚昧的深渊,葬送民族和国家的前程,中华民族就会再次回到黑暗的封建社会和任人牢割的殖民地时代。

  二、“法轮功”侵害公民的健康权

  人权中最基本的权利就是生命权。一个人如果身体不健康,生存也成了问题,甚至连生命都不存在了,其他的任何权利都无从谈起。李洪志所编造的“法轮大法”尤其是其中的“消业说”公然践踏公民的健康权和生命权。


  “消业说”是李洪志歪理邪说的重要内容,是控制练习者的一种重要手段和精神毒品。李洪志说,人有病和一切不幸都是“前世业力”造成的,“造成他(指人们)有病和所有不幸的根本原因是业力,那个黑色物质业力场。”“它(指业力)是导致人有病的根本原因,这是最主要的一种病的来源。”生老病死“都是有因缘关系的,都是业力回报,你欠了债就得还。”(《转法轮》第251至255页)有病是在“消业”,看病吃药会把“业力”压回去,就不能“消业”、“上层次”。“你是承受了很大的病了,所以你自身的业力也要得到转化。因为你付出了,承受多大,转化多大,都变成德。”“所有的执著心,只要你有,就到在各种环境中把它磨掉。”“你执著于那些东西,你就修炼不出来。”(《转法轮》第139至140页)要“消业”、上“层次”,就要去掉看病的“执着心”。如果“你吃药把这业力又压回去了,怎么给你清理身体呢?”又说:“炼功的人的功自动就在消灭病毒和业力”等等。李洪志到处鼓吹这一套“消业说”,并亲自授意“法轮功”组织炮制了练习“法轮功”有祛病健身奇效的假报告、假病例、假故事,愚弄欺骗“法轮功”练习者。在“法轮功”致练习者死亡的1400多例中,有不少人就是这样被葬送了自己的生命权。还有更多的人延误了治疗,使病情进一步加重。以下几个案例会使人们得到启示。


  江苏启东服装厂退休职工张玉琴,从1995年10月开始练习“法轮功”,相信李洪志所说的有病是“前世业力造成的”,“有病是在消业”,有病不就医吃药,最后病痛难忍,思想崩溃,于1998年1月23日用刀片割断颈动脉,因失血过多,死在了自家的卫生间。


  辽宁省抚顺市露天矿地质设计科原科长柏常裕(62岁),1997年开始练习“法轮功”,相信李洪志的练功人有病是在“消业”,不看病不吃药,子女多次劝他到医院检查,都被他拒绝。1999年4月病情加重,仍不到医院检查。同他一起“学法”练功的妻子说:“练‘法轮功’能治病,不用到医院检查,要坚强,咬牙就能挺过去。”并拿着“法轮功”的书说:“你看,现在李洪志就在你身边,帮助你消业,让你脱胎换骨,保佑你躺一个月就好了。”子女坚持将他送到医院,他仍拒绝治疗,于5月3日死亡。


  家住北京市宣武区虎坊路的张贺如,1996年开始练“法轮功”,达到痴迷程度。1998年6月病情加重,整天吐,吃不进饭。不吃药,也去看病,说“犯病是好现象”,是“老师给我消业呢,挺过去病就好了”。一直拖到9月26日,她实在挺不住了,全家人好说歹说劝她进了医院,一查是肠癌中晚期。整整耽误了105天。


  李洪志的这一套妖言邪说,是完全违反科学常识,是地地道道的疯人噫语。李洪志是十分清楚这一点的。他和他的家人得了病不仅吃药,他本人就去医院动了阑尾切除手术。李洪志编造出这一套妖言邪说,完全有他不可告人的目的。


  那些有病不治疗、不吃药的练习者,似乎都是“自觉自愿”的。然而,这些貌似“自觉自愿”的行为,实质上是受到李洪志及其“法轮大法”的精神控制而失去自我意识的表现。罪魁祸首是李洪志,他们本人则是李洪志及其“法轮大法”的直接受害者。


  尤其令人不能容忍的是,李洪志反而诬蔑那些死亡于他的邪说的练习者是“魔在破坏大法”。他在《法轮大法义解》一书中说:“最不好辨别的就是这种魔,它的破坏力是很大的。它也来学法轮大法,……然后他一下子死了,或者他一下子走向相反的路了,来破坏法轮大法。”从这里人们可以看出,这个以“真善忍”相标榜的“大师”,绝不是人权卫士,而是一个毫不人性可言、杀人不用刀的神汉巫医;他所鼓吹的“法轮大法”绝不是济世良药,而是一剂毒害人们心灵的精神毒药,“法轮功”是人类社会的一大毒瘤。

  三、“法轮功”侵害公民的生存权

  同一切邪教头目一样,李洪志为了欺骗群众,达到他不可告人的目的,极力神化自己,宣扬他有超自然的“神力”。“开天目”、“装法轮”、“法身保护”等等,就是李洪志这个邪教头目“神力”,是他愚弄和控制练习者的一套谎言、骗术和精神毒药。它会把一个精神正常的人变成一精神病态的人,甚至最终剥夺了练习者乃至他人的生存权。


  李洪志宣扬他可以给人“开天目”。他在《转法轮》一书中说:“我们讲的开天目就是避开人的视神经,在人的两眉之间给打出一条通道来,使松果体直接向外看,这就叫开天目。”“天目层次很高的人他可以透过我们的空间看到另外的时空,可以看到常人看不到的景象;层次不高的人可以有穿透力,隔墙视物,透视人体”。他说:“一般人很难自己修炼开天目,多是师父给开的。”就是说要由他给练习者“开天目”。现代科学证明,松果体不过是内分泌腺,不是视觉器官。人是通过眼睛接受外界图象、经视神经传导给大脑皮层而获得视觉的。所谓“开天目”纯属无稽之谈。


  李洪志宣称他能够给“法轮功”练习者小腹部“装法轮”。他在《转法轮》等书中宣称“法轮”是“宇宙的缩影”,是一个“能自动吸收和发放宇宙能量的灵体”。“内旋变己,外旋度人”,“法轮度己度人,是法轮大法的特点。”他故弄玄虚说:“法轮是一个灵体,它是经过多少代人才形成的,历代单传,从来不传外人。我现在在一个特殊的历史环境下,把它拿来传人。”(《转法轮法解》第43页)又说:“这个法轮太珍贵了,是不能用价值来衡量的。没有缘分的人你花多少多少亿也买不来。”“他比你的生命还高级。”(《法轮佛法——在悉尼讲法》第66页)“我给修炼者下在小腹部位的法轮每天24小时旋转不停(真修者读我的书,或看我的讲法录像,或跟着大法学员学炼也能获得法轮)。也就是说修炼者虽然没有时时在炼,而法轮却在不停的炼人。”(《法轮佛法大圆满法》第4页)“法轮”不过是李洪志盗用道教的太极图和佛教的万字符所拼凑的一种图形,作为“法轮功”的一种标识和图记,它无任何实际意义,不是什么“实体”,更不是什么“灵体”,他绝不可能给任何人的体内“装法轮”。“装法轮说”同样是无稽之谈。


  李洪志宣扬他有无数的“法身”,他的“法身”可以保护练习者。他谎称“全世界只有我一个人有法身”,“我有无数的法身,和我长得一样”,“他的智慧完全是打开的,法力像佛一样,主体在我这里,他们自己有独立做事的能力,他们会看护你,保护你,帮你演化功,做一些事情。其实他就是我的化身,所以我就能保护你。”(《法轮佛法——在悉尼讲法》第70页)“这本书(指《转法轮》)里边每个字都是我的法身,每个字都是我的法身的形象。每个字都是佛的形象。我有无数的法身,我的法身不能用数字来计算。”“多少人我都能管,全人类我都能管。”“所以你修炼,只有一动念,我的法身就知道。”(同上,第105至106页)“法身”一词来源于佛教,是指释迦牟尼所传教法的人格化,相当于佛法的精神和原则,无形象,也无数量。李洪志曲解佛教“法身”的原意,并为自己所用,宣扬一套骗人的“法身说”,愚弄群众。李洪志自己清楚,他根本没有什么“法身”。当中国政府发出通辑令后,他露出一副奴才相乞求洋人保护,他连自己也保护不了,也绝保护不了任何人。


  然而,李洪志的这些谎言、邪说和骗术却毒害了无数“法轮功”练习者,还使许多练习者出现幻视、幻觉、幻想,精神失常,自残、自杀,有的走上杀人的犯罪道路,制造了一幕幕人间悲剧,给练习者个人、家庭和社会带来不幸,造成严重的社会恶果。


  重庆市开县天白乡工商所干部高恩诚(男,42岁),1997年11月开始练习“法轮功”,逐渐变得少言寡语,很少与人交往,坚信修炼“法轮功”达到一定程度,就可以“开天目”,就会“三花聚顶”、“生原婴”、“死后升天”。1998年11月2日,高恩诚将银行存款取出,分给女儿、岳父、岳母,说自己已经“成仙”。并对人说,他梦见妻子李小芬前世是一条大蛇,今世是毒蛇变的。6日上午10时,高恩诚称:“人之初,性本善,你们都没有学懂,我才学了一年‘法轮功’,思想就达到了顶点。”“我不与你们凡人说,只有我的儿子高雄理解我。”高恩诚在自己楼上练功后,抱着自己的儿子高雄从四楼跳下摔在坝子上。他所在单位工商所立即叫来医生抢救,与他一起练功的妻子李小芬还竟然说“李洪志能保护他”,不让医生抢救。高恩诚因抢救无效死亡,孩子经抢救算脱离危险。


  谢立(女)是重庆钢铁(集团)有限公司的一位教师,因患心脏病抱着强身健体的想法,于1997年10月开始练习“法轮功”。谢立相信李洪志的歪理邪说,达到痴迷的程度,并出现幻视、幻觉。1999年1月27日,她突然告诉家人,自己“开了天目”,“看到李洪志老师在天上召唤我”。精神恍惚,口中念念有词,发展到三天三夜不吃不喝,1月29日中午,谢立趁丈夫周安不注意,纵身从10层楼高的阳台往下跳,丈夫慌乱中只抓住了她的一只袖子,眼睁睁看着她坠楼身亡。


  华北油田退休职工马建民练习“法轮功”两年左右,达到痴迷的程度,后来出现精神恍惚和失常,坚持认为自己的腹部有个“法轮”。1998年9月4日,马建民在家中用剪刀剖腹寻找,导致死亡。


  以上只是李洪志的妖言邪说致人精神失常,自残、自杀的几个事例,这足以使人们看清李洪志和“法轮功”邪教组织践踏人性、人权的本质。

  四、“法轮功”侵害公民言论新闻出版自由权

  言论、新闻、出版自由是宪法规定公民的基本权利,是人权的重要内容。李洪志和“法轮功”组织的所作所为,完全践踏了这一原则。李洪志和“法轮功”组织一方面为所欲为,滥用这一权利,违反法律规定非法出版李洪志的书籍、录像带、录音带,到处办班,举行报告会,宣传李洪志的歪理邪说;另一方面,却肆意践踏这一原则,侵犯其他公民言论、新闻、出版自由权,不允许人们有不同意见,不允许人们批评李洪志和“法轮大法”,不允许报刊发表批评他们的文章。对李洪志和“法轮功”的任何批评都被诬篾为“魔在破坏大法”,煽动练习者以“护法”为名,诬蔑攻击敢于批评他们的人,非法围攻党政机关、新闻单位。


  从李洪志的“法轮功”一出台,就曾遭到一些人的抵制。李洪志歪曲“魔道相生相克”的原义,编造了“魔破坏大法说”,以坚定练习者的心,同时打击别人。1996年7月,国家新闻出版署根据群众揭发和法律规定,对李洪志的《转法轮》等5种书籍组织专家审读者,作出收缴、停售、封存的处理决定 。光明日报以此发表了揭露“法轮功”的文章,李洪志和“法轮功”组织十分恐慌。他无视政府主管部门的依法管理,继续挥舞“魔在破坏大法”的大棒,一方面要求练习者“经受住考验”,煽动说“怕什么,头掉了身子还在打坐”。另一方面,直接组织、策划和指挥下一系列反政府活动,制造了一起又一起破坏国家法律实施、侵犯言论新闻出版自由、危害社会安定的聚众闹事事件。


  据不完全地统计,由李洪志和“法轮功”组织策划组织的围攻新闻单位和党政机关的聚众闹事事件就有300多起,300人以上的全国范围滋事事件就达78起。以万人围攻中南海为例,绝不是像李洪志之流所宣扬的“讨公道”,像国外某些“人权卫士”所说的“和平请愿”、“和平示威”,而是李洪志及“法轮功”组织所精心策划的反自由、反民主、反人权、反科学、反社会、反政府的一起违法事件。“4·25”事件的直接起因,是1999年4月天津师范大学《青少年科技博览》杂志发表了一篇何祚庥院士写的《我不赞成青少年练气功》的文章。文章对青少年练气功提出一些不同看法,客观地讲了一些事实和道理,其中点到“法轮功”。就是这样一个面向青少年的不知名的小杂志,一篇由中科院院士对青少年进行科普教育的小文章,以“真善忍”相标榜的李洪志和“法轮功”组织,竟欺骗、煽动和组织6000多名练习者从4月19日至23日,连续5天围攻该杂志编辑部。无理要求为李洪志和“法轮功”恢复名誉,追究作者和编辑的责任,如数收回已经发售的刊物,停发未发出的刊物,并在该刊上刊登向李洪志和“法轮功”赔礼道歉的声明。从这里人们可以清楚的看出,在李洪志和“法轮功”组织那里根本没有什么言论、新闻、出版自由而言,他们所要的“自由”不过是只许他们放火,不许别人点灯的自由。


  对于他们这种践踏人权,侵犯言论、新闻、出版自由权利的非法活动,政府采取了十分克制的态度,进行了耐心劝告。正是在这个时候,李洪志匆匆从美国乘飞机飞回北京,亲自策划于密室,欺骗、蒙蔽、煽动河北、辽宁、山东、黑龙江、安徽、天津和北京等地的上万名练习者,一夜之间迅速集聚北京,非法围攻党中央、国务院所在地中南海,制造了震惊中外的“4·25”事件。把他践踏人权,侵犯言论、新闻、出版自由的丑行发展到极点。“4·25”事件还是李洪志企图夺取国家政权的一次演练。李洪志利令智昏,他们误认为政府和人民软弱可欺,自己羽翼丰满,实现其罪恶阴谋的时机已到。他们围攻中南海,就是妄图把李洪志的歪理邪说强加在中国人民头上,取代马克思列宁主义、毛泽东思想和邓小平理论;把李洪志这样一个邪教头目作为精神领袖强加给中国人民,以李洪志和“法轮功”组织取代中国共产党,夺取国家政权,改变中国的前进方向。这在世界邪教所制造事件中也是没有前例的。然而,李洪志和“法轮功”组织过高的估计了自己的力量,过低的估计了党和人民的力量。到头来搬起石头砸自己的脚,在人民面前暴露了他的真实面目,也就注定了他必然失败的命运。


  民主和自由同属上层建筑,是为经济基础服务的。民主和自由是手段,而不是目的。在我们社会主义国家,绝不给那些反对党的领导、反对马克思列宁主义、反对社会主义制度、危害国家和人民群众根本利益的组织和活动以自由。我国政府取缔“法轮功”邪教,正是为了维护绝大多数公民的基本权利,维护社会的安定,维护国家和人民群众的根本利益。

  五、“法轮功”侵害宗教信仰自由权

  中国共产党是以马克思列宁主义为理论基础的无产阶级政党。马克思列宁主义的辩证唯物主义和历史唯物主义是彻底的无神论。马克思列宁主义正确地揭示了宗教的本质、产生根源和社会作用,提出了对待宗教的正确态度和政策。马克思主义宗教观是我们认识宗教的科学观点和方法。宗教信仰自由政策是依据马克思主义宗教观结合我国具体国情,所制定的对待和处理宗教问题的一项长期的基本政策。李洪志和“法轮功”组织肆意践踏宗教信仰自由的原则,贬低一切宗教,要人们放弃对一切宗教的信仰,改信“法轮功”邪教,在不同信仰的人们中间制造矛盾,挑起事端。


  李洪志宣称“法轮大法”不是宗教,但他却反复将“法轮大法”与一切宗教相比,说“一切宗教都已不能度人”,唯有“法轮大法”是“最高佛法”、“宇宙大法”,是“唯一能度人上天国的梯子”。他吹嘘“法轮大法”是“非常富丽堂皇的大宫殿”,而别的宗教只不过是“非常小、简陋的房子”。他是比释迦牟尼、耶稣基督、老子等教主高明若干倍的最高的“教主”。他要信仰各种宗教的人们放弃自己的信仰,改信他的“法轮大法”。他说:“我告诉你是怕你耽误了。被那个不能度人的宗教耽误了。”(《法轮佛法——在北美首届法会上讲法》第32至33页)李洪志和“法轮功”组织大搞新的造神运动,把李洪志这样一个胡言乱语的骗子美化成一个至高无上的新救世主,一个“具有大神通”,可“了悟宇宙真理,洞察人生,预知人类过去未来”,有无数“法身”和超自然神力,主宰人类、主宰宇宙的至高无上的神,要求练习者把他的话当作“经文”,制造荒唐的教主崇拜,使练习者甚至于不敢直呼其名,这与黑暗愚昧、神权至上的中世纪社会没有什么两样。在李洪志和“法轮功”组织中,只有崇拜李洪志的自由,只信仰其歪理邪说的自由,根本没有宗教信仰的自由。


  李洪志及其“法轮大法”尤其敌视唯物论和无神论,视唯物论和无神论如死敌。他说:“你要反对科学,虽然它不会杀死你,会群起而攻之,谁都说你是迷信,谁都说你是可笑,它还会把你从社会中贬得一钱不值。”又说:“它(指科学无神论)不能证实神的存在,它也不知道人干了坏事会有报应,人做了好事有好报,要想做一个好人就得重德,它说你是异端邪说。”(《法轮佛法——在欧洲法会上讲法》第88至91页)马克思主义唯物论、无神论是与科学共命运的。李洪志要把自己装扮成一个新的至高无上的救世主,必然要遭到无神论者的批判。这是李洪志不愿看到的。所以,他用一切谎言、骗术煽动练习者反对马克思主义的唯物论、无神论。


  所谓宗教信仰自由,就是说,既有信仰宗教的自由,也有不信仰宗教的自由;既有信仰这种宗教的自由,也有信那种宗教的自由;在同一宗教里,既有信仰这个教派的自由,也有信仰那个教派的自由;既有过去不信教而现在信教的自由,也有过去信教而现在不信教的自由。由此可见,李洪志及“法轮功”组织的所言所行,完全与宗教信仰自由原则风马牛不相及,是侵犯公民的宗教信仰自由权。取缔“法轮功”邪教组织,揭露李洪志歪理邪说,正是维护宗教信仰自由的原则,全面正确贯彻执行宗教信仰自由政策的行动。

  综上所述,李洪志及其“法轮功”组织的所作所为,完全在践踏人权,违反人性,危害国家和人民群众的根本利益。它已经给人民群众、给社会、给国家造成了严重危害。“法轮功”组织比起国外邪教组织的罪行恶迹来有过之而无不及。如果听任李洪志和“法轮功”邪教组织滋生蔓延,不及时采取措施加以取缔,我们国家和民族的前途必将被断送,改革开放二十年来所发生的变化和全国人民在物质上、精神上的得益都将失去,中国人民的人权何从谈起。


  在“4·25”事件发生以后,中国政府经过大量调查研究,在掌握了李洪志和“法轮功”组织非法违法活动的事实后,制定了正确的政策,采取了稳妥的步骤,开展了坚决揭露和取缔“法轮功”邪教组织的活动。在这场斗争中,党和政府严格区分两类不同性质的矛盾,把邪教头目及其骨干同绝大多数“法轮功”练习者严格加以区别,即使对那些痴迷不悟的顽固分子以及有某些非法违法活动的分子,也不放弃教育,按照“团结大多数,教育大多数,转化大多数,解脱大多数”的方针,做了大量艰苦细致的工作,使绝大多数“法轮功”练习者认清了李洪志和“法轮功”的本来面目,从邪教组织中解脱出来。我们所打击的只是极少数有严重违法犯罪活动的骨干和别有用心的幕后策划者、操纵者。中国政府取缔“法轮功”邪教组织,完全是维护宪法和法律尊严、维护社会安定、维护全国人民包括绝大多数“法轮功”练习者的生命财产安全和根本利益、维护人权的正义行动。


  这场斗争的彻底胜利,必将使全国人民受一次科学唯物论、无神论教育,极大地提高全国人民对邪教的认识能力,促进我国社会主义物质文明和精神文明的发展,同时对维护人权的崇高事业做出贡献。任何不带偏见的人都会得出正确的结。

Duan Qiming: See how Falun Gong trample on human right

After years' of fighting against Falun Gong since Chinese government announced on July 22, 1999 "Research Society of Falun Dafa" and the Falun Gong organization under its control to be illegal, the political struggle against Falun Gong cult has now achieved decisive victory. Through the struggle, we have destroyed the commanding system and organizational structure of Falun Gong; found out and punished Falun Gong core members; denounced Li Hongzhi's fallacies, the political ambition of the Falun Gong organization as well as its serious social impact and; the majority of Falun Gong practitioners have awakened. China's success in fighting against cults and defending human rights has accumulated a lot of experience in this regard as well.

Li Hongzhi, a cult ringleader and a human rights abuser who had fled to U.S.A, however, tried to put up a desperate struggle in the way of instigating the diehards in Mainland China to make trouble by giving them orders through internet and some other channels. In the meantime, he assumed himself a "human rights defender", tried to make the Falun Gong issue internationalized and acted against his own motherland with the help of foreigners by stigmatizing Chinese government's legal action of banning on Falun Gong as "infringing on human right" or "interfering freedom of belief". A wave of anti-China action was thus surged.

What is human right? The basic rights and freedoms to which all humans are entitled according to the Constitution, including the right to life, health and education, freedom of thought, expression, press and religious belief are among the human rights to be maintained. For a nation, the basic right is its right to existence and development. Without the development and flourishing of China and improvement of Chinese people's living standard, any other rights of Chinese people will have no root.

Now let's compare what Li Hongzhi and his Falun Gong organization had done with our achievement in fighting against the cult organization. I'm sure the readers will have a clear idea as to which party stands for justice.

I. Falun Gong infringes upon the right to national development

The right to existence and development are the essential human rights. Only by development and strengthen its comprehensive national power and improvement of its people's living standard can a nation achieve its existence, development and safeguard any other basic rights of its people. Therefore we shall develop our education, science and culture so that the overall ideological, cultural and ethical cultivation of Chinese people can be further improved by mastering the scientific world-view and methodology as well as knowledge in modern science. Li Hongzhi and his "Falun Dafa" are in fact contradictory with such a social trend.

On the one hand, Li Hongzhi denounced modern science, saying, "Humankind's modern science has in fact developed on a wrong foundation, with a wrong understanding of the universe, humankind, and life. That's why in the world of cultivation we cultivators don't agree with today's science at all and think that it's a mistake." (Falun Fofa-Teaching the Fa in the United States). He even called white black as saying that science is "not upright" and discouraged people to learn modern science. On the other hand, he boasted "Falun Dafa" to be the "universal law" and "highest science", saying, "Nothing is as profound as 'Falun Dafa'. Of all teachings in the world it is the most wondrous and highest science." He claimed that "truth, compassion and forbearance" is "the basic Buddhist Law(or Fofa)" and "the nature of the universe" while all natural and social phenomena are nothing but "a different discourse at different levels" of "truth, compassion and forbearance", and that everything is made of "truth, compassion and forbearance"-"Air particles, stone, wood, soil, steel, the human body - all matter has the nature of 'truth, compassion and forbearance'". (Zhuan Falun). He ordered Falun Gong practitioners to study, copy and recite his books. He not only asked the practitioners to study Falun Gong in person or collectively but also held "Fa conferences" to exchange experience in study. He promoted Changchun experience in the book "Explaining the Content of Falun Dafa" by saying that "they sit down and start to study, and they don't need the book - one person recites the book by memory from the beginning, then he stops and another person continues to recite, without making a mistake, and no single word is wrongly recited as they continue to recite. Then it continues, you recite a paragraph, he recites a paragraph, and people go on reciting like this. Later on they start to copy the book by hand. When they make a mistake they start all over again - they copy the book from the very beginning again." That is the way by which the Falun Gong organization attempted to replace the righteous modern science with Li Hongzhi's fallacies and have brainwash and spiritual control over Falun Gong practitioners.

In the early stages when Li Hongzhi launched his Falun Gong, he did puff that practicing Falun Gong could help to "keep healthy and fit", and had pretended to "heal" others by "sending out Gong". A lot of Falun Gong practitioners were thus trapped by the alleged function of Falun Gong in healing and keeping fit. It should be noted that in the early stages, he had claimed that "Falun Dafa" was "not Qigong at the lower level of healing and fitness" and that only practicing movement was not "Falun Dafa". He even debased those who only practiced movement while didn't "study Fa" as "spreading unrighteous Fa". He insisted that "Falun Dafa" "emphasized on cultivating character" and "cultivation should be primary". According to him, "cultivation" meant "studying Fa", and "studying Fa" meant reading his books, watching his "Fa teaching" video tapes and listening to his "Fa teaching" audio tapes. In this way, Li Hongzhi brainwashed the Falun Gong practitioners with his fallacies and thereby the Falun Gong practitioners were completely  controlled by Li Hongzhi and his fallacies without their own thought or judgment, becoming nothing but tools used by Li Hongzhi and the cult organization. The allegation that "practicing Falun Gong" could help to "keep healthy and fit" was nothing but a coat and bait of Falun Gong used to trap people into the organization.

Since the beginning of practicing Falun Gong, many practitioners spent much time and energy in reading Li Hongzhi's books, watching and listening to his tapes while left along their study or work. Many practitioners neglected dissuasion from their family members, relatives and friends, thinking that others were ordinary people with too much karma power or even under the driving of "demons" from other spaces to wave their belief on "Falun Dafa". Therefore they neglected kinship and friendship. This caused much disharmony in many families and among people. Many people were convinced by Li Hongzhi that human beings had reached a critic point in moral, and that the earth was full of "evil" and the world would soon "explode". Since they thought it right for them not to take on any responsibility for the society and "leave" such an evil place by cultivating and promoting their levels so that they might reach "Buddhahood" and achieve nirvana, they cared about nothing else but Falun Gong and were cold to other people as well as things happened around. Many Falun Gong practitioners were obsessed in Li Hongzhi's fallacies and took them as "the highest universal truth" and Li Hongzhi as "the highest god in the universe". They dared not show their slightest irreverence towards Li Hongzhi. They even dared not call Li Hongzhi's name for fear that they might be punished and "died out in both shape and spirit". Since Li Hongzhi and his fallacies had completely dominated them, the Falun Gong practitioners just surrendered to Li Hongzhi and Falun Gong and were even willing to die for them. In order to "protect Fa", some practitioners disregarded social stability and national laws and illegally participated in besieging news institutions and government bodies. They even felt glorified instead of ashamed of such deeds, believing that they were enduring "test" and promoting their "levels". The seriously poisoned Falun Gong practitioners were so obsessed in Li Hongzhi's fallacies and addicted to the isolated environment created by Falun Gong that they completely lost their judgment as to right and wrong, good and bad, righteous and evil. As a result, some of them were muddled, some mentally disordered, some committed suicide, some participated in illegal activities and some even committed crimes.

Since teenagers were maturing both physically and mentally with little social experience, if they were enticed to practice Falun Gong and thereby obsessed in Li Hongzhi's fallacies, they might be injured fatally both physically and mentally. For instance, Li Ting, a student under the age of 18, killed his parents while he was in mental disorder for having practiced Falun Gong. Before practicing Falun Gong, Li Ting had been a good boy in a happy family. In 1997, as Li Ting didn't pass the entrance examination for the key middle school, the regretful boy began to practice Falun Gong for curiosity as he saw people practicing Falun Gong in the park. As he gradually got lost in Falun Gong and Li Hongzhi's fallacies, he became mentally disordered and eventually had heteroptics and hallucination, claiming that he had "opened the third eye" and could see "burning fire balls". When Li Ting's mother found her son in mental disorder, she took him to Beijing to have him diagnosed and treated in Beijing Psychiatric Hospital. Li Ting, however, insisted that he was not sick and would not see doctor. He thought that he had "understood the universal truth" and had become "Buddha" while his parents were "demons that must be wiped out" so that "the demons could turn to be Buddha". In the early hours of March 20, 1999, Li Ting killed his parents with a dagger while they were still in sound sleep. Li Hongzhi and his Falun Gong organization had not only put an end to the bright future of the teenager Li Ting, but also made a murder case and destroyed a happy family.

Such retroactive activities of Li Hongzhi and Falun Gong cult are against humanity and humans' pursuit of truth in that they poisoned people spiritually, making them abandon the passion to real life in their pursuing of an illusory "Falun realm". In addition, it disrupted social stability and endangered national interest. It is indeed quite a tragedy to a nation with millions of people lost in superstitious and fatuous spiritual state. If the kind of "magnificent scene" of "consummation" envisaged by Li Hongzhi really happens, tragedies of people being murdered by cults in other regions will emerge in China as well. Li Hongzhi said at the Fa Conference in Europe, "I also want to bring humankind a magnificent scene at the time of your Consummation." "Have all Dafa disciples, regardless of whether they need bodies or not, elevate their bodies into the sky and then fly away; those who don't need bodies will have their bodies go through Light-Transformation in the air. This will create a glory that's never existed before in history, leaving human beings a profound lesson. People don't believe in gods, so let gods truly manifest before people."(Falun Fofa:Teaching the Fa at the Fa Conference in Europe). Anyone with common sense could imagine how horrible it might be if that really happened. If we let Falun Gong spread in this way, China as well as the Chinese nation would certain get lost in such a laggard and fatuous abyss that Chinese people would have no bright future but gloomy and suffering destiny.

II. Falun Gong infringes upon right to health

The essential component for human rights is the right to life. Without health, life will certainly be affected or even perish. Without life, any other right will certainly be rootless. Li Hongzhi's "Falun Dafa", especially the fallacy of "eliminating karma" tramples on people's right to health and life.

The fallacy of "eliminating karma" is an important part of Li Hongzhi's fallacies and a key instrument and spiritual narcotics used by Li Hongzhi to control the Falun Gong practitioners. Li Hongzhi said that illness and misfortune of people are caused by karma-"The root cause of their problem and all their misfortune is karma, that black-matter karmic field…That's the root cause of people's health problems. It's the chief source of them…Birth, old age, illness and death, all have causes from the past and are karmic retribution. If you owe a debt you have to pay it off."(Zhuan Falun). According to Li Hongzhi, if you are ill, that means you are eliminating your karma. If you take medicine, "karma forces" will be suppressed and you won't be able to "eliminate karma" or "promote to higher levels"-"You're the one who suffered a lot, so your own karma will get transformed. You paid the price, so however much you've borne, that's how much gets transformed, and it all turns into virtue…All your attachments, as long as you have them, all have to be worn down in different settings…If you're attached to those things you won't be able to finish your cultivation." (Zhuan Falun). That means if you want to "eliminate karma" or to "promote to higher levels", you have to wear down your such "attachment" as having medical treatment- "if you take medicine, 'karma forces' will be suppressed, then how to get rid of the bad stuff in your body? … Gong of the practitioners will automatically eliminate virus and karma." Li Hongzhi preached such "eliminating karma" fallacy everywhere and instructed the Falun Gong organization to fabricate various false reports and stories to fool the Falun Gong practitioners by indicating that practicing Falun Gong had magic power in healing and keeping fit. Among the 1400 Falun Gong related murder cases, there are many people who ruined their own right to life as they refused to have medical treatment. And still more people delayed in having treatment in this way. The following cases surely have some warning effects to us:

Zhang Yuqin, a retired worker from Jiangsu Qidong Garment Factory, began to practice Falun Gong in October 1995. As she was convinced by Li Hongzhi that illness was "caused by karma" and that "being ill is indeed eliminating karma" she refused to have medical treatment and finally collapsed mentally in insupportable ailment. On January 23, 1998, Zhang cut her carotid and died in the toilet for excessive loss of blood.

Bai Changyu (62), a retired section chief geologist at a coalmine in Fushun City Liaoning province, began to practice Falun Gong in 1997. As he was convinced by Li Hongzhi that "being ill is indeed eliminating karma", Bai refused his children's advice to have medical treatment when he was sick. In April 1999, when his illness got more serious, he still refused to see doctor. His wife who was also a Falun Gong practitioner, said: "practicing 'Falun Gong' can cure diseases. You must be strong enough to survive." Meanwhile, she held a book of Falun Gong, saying, "You see, Li Hongzhi is just beside you, helping you to eliminate karma and have a reborn. And you will be all right in a month." On April 28, his children sent him to a hospital, where he still refused medical treatment. He died on May 3.

Zhang Heru, a Falun Gong fanatic from Hufang Rd, Xuanwu District, Beijing, began to practice Falun Gong in 1996. In June 1998, while her disease got more serious and she could not eat but vomiting frequently, she refused to have medical treatment, saying, "the master is eliminating karma for me and I will recover as long as I endure this." On September 26, as she could not endure any longer, she was sent to hospital. It was diagnosed that she had mid and last term of intestines cancer. She died then due to delayed medical treatment for 105 days.

Li Hongzhi's fallacies are nothing but nonsense utterly against science, of which Li Hongzhi himself is quite aware. Li Hongzhi and his family members did take medicine, and he himself had a vermiform appendix excising operation as well. Li Hongzhi had his own ambition in fabricating such fallacies.

It seems to be their voluntary behavior for those Falun Gong practitioners to refuse to have medical treatment. Their voluntary behaviors, however, were a manifestation of their losing of self-awareness due to the spiritual control of Li Hongzhi and his "Falun Dafa". Li Hongzhi was in fact the chief criminal while the practitioners were just the victim of Li Hongzhi and his "Falun Dafa".

What is most flagrant is that Li Hongzhi stigmatized those Falun Gong practitioners died from his fallacies to be "demons interference with Dafa". In the book "Explaining the Content of Falun Dafa", Li Hongzhi said, "This type of demons are most difficult to recognize, and they're capable of doing major damage. They come to learn Falun Dafa as others…Then all of a sudden they die or all of a sudden they go down the opposite path, and damage Falun Dafa this way." It could be learnt that such a "master" who boasts to be "truth, compassion and forbearance" is not a human rights defender but a merciless and brutal wizard or witch doctor; the "Falun Dafa" he preachs is not good medicine for the world but spiritual poison; and Falun Gong is a large cancer to the society.

III. Falun Gong infringes upon the right to life

Just like other cult ringleaders, Li Hongzhi tried to apotheosize himself and boasted that he had supernatural "function" so as to deceive the public and realize his ambition. The fallacies such as "opening the Third Eye", "planting Falun" and "Law Body protection" are among the "functions" of this cult ringleader and the tools that he used to fool and control the Falun Gong practitioners. Such fallacies may make people mentally sick and even deprive the Falun Gong practitioners and other innocent people of their right to life.

Li Hongzhi boasted that he could "open the Third Eye" for others. In "Zhuan Falun", he said, "When we talk about 'opening the Third Eye', it's about bypassing your optic nerves and opening a passageway between your eyebrows, which makes it possible for your pineal gland to see outside directly…People with a high-level Third Eye can penetrate our dimension to see other space-times, and they can see scenes that ordinary people can't. People who aren't at a high level might have the ability to see through things, they might be able to see through walls to look at things, or see inside the human body." He further said, "Ordinary people can hardly practice opening the Third Eye. Most of them were done by the master." By this it meant that it would be him to "open the Third Eye" for the Falun Gong practitioners. Modern science proves that pineal gland is endocrine gland instead of visual sense organ. Since visual sense generates from the image of an object that is reflected in our eyes and impressed on the pallium through the optic nerves, "opening the Third Eye" is nothing but a tale of a tub.

Li Hongzhi boasted that he could "plant Falun" at the lower abdomen of the Falun Gong practitioners. In "Zhuan Falun" and other books, he alleged that "Falun" was a "miniature of the universe", an "intelligent being that can automatically absorb and give off energy in the universe". He said, "So when the Falun rotates inward, it saves oneself, and when it rotates outward, it saves others…one feature of Falun Dafa is that Falun can save oneself as well as others." He deliberately mystified in saying that "The Falun is an intelligent being. We have formed it only after going through so many generations of people. In the past it was passed on from generation to generation through a single disciple, and it has never been passed to outsiders. In this special historic environment, I have now brought it out in the open to pass on to people."(Explaining Zhuan Falun), and that "This Falun is extremely precious, priceless in fact. For a person who lacks a predestined connection, no matter how many hundreds of millions he spent, he still couldn't buy it…it is even higher than your life."(Lecture in Sydney). He alleged, "The Falun that I plant in a practitioner's lower abdomen rotates constantly, twenty-four hours a day. (True practitioners can acquire a Falun by reading my books, watching my talks on video, listening to my talks on audiocassette, or studying with Dafa students.) The Falun helps practitioners cultivate automatically. That is, the Falun cultivates practitioners at all times even though they don't perform the exercises." (Falun Fofa- Law of Great Consummation). In fact, "Falun" is just a kind of diagram patched up by Li Hongzhi by embezzling Taiji diagram of Taoism and Swastikas of Buddhism. It is not an "entity", not to mention any "intelligent being". Li Hongzhi could never plant any "Falun" in anyone. The allegation of "planting Falun" is also a tale of a tub.

Li Hongzhi boasted that he had countless "Law Bodies" that could protect the Falun Gong practitioners. He lied that "I am the only one in the world who have Law Bodies…I have numerous Law Bodies who look the same as me. Their wisdom is completely opened with the same power of Fa like that of a Buddha. The main body is here with me, and they have the ability to do things independently. They will look after you, protect you, help you transform Gong, and do certain things. In fact, they are the embodiment of my wisdom. Therefore, I am able to safeguard you…Because I have mentioned that each word in this book (refers to Zhuan Falun) has my Law Bodies, every word is the image of my Law Body and every word is the image of a Buddha. I have numerous Law Bodies, which cannot be calculated by numbers...No matter how many people there are, I can take care of all of them, and I can take care of the entire mankind…Therefore, if you practice cultivation, the moment you have that thought, my Law Body will know it." (Lecture in Sydney). The term "Law Body" comes from Buddhism, meaning a personification of Buddha Law preached by Sakyamuni. It is shapeless and countless, signifying spirit and order of Buddhist doctrine. Li Hongzhi distorted the original meaning of Law Body and had it to preach his fallacies in an aim of fooling the public. Li Hongzhi himself is clear that he had no "Law Body" at all. When the Chinese government issued the hue and cry, he had to take refuge in a foreign country. How could he protect others if he could not protect himself?

However, such fallacies and trickeries of Li Hongzhi poisoned a lot of Falun Gong practitioners and caused a lot of tragedies that brought misfortunes to individuals, families and the society in that many Falun Gong practitioners became mentally disordered and had self-mutilation, committed suicide or committed crimes.

Gao Encheng (male, 42), official of an industrial and commercial administrative office in Tianbai Township, Kaixian County, Chongqing, began to practice Falun Gong in November 1997. After that, he gradually became withdrawn and uncommunicative. He firmly believed that he could "open the Third Eye" and have "Three Flowers Atop the Head" after practicing Falun Gong for some time, and that his soul would go to Heaven after his death. On November 2, 1998, he withdrew all his savings from the bank and gave them to his daughter by his ex-wife, his parents and his mother-in-law, saying that he had become immortal. He told other people that he had dreamt that his wife Li Xiaofen had been a snake in her previous life. Later, on the morning of November 6, he said to others that his thinking had reached the summit after one year's practice of "Falun Gong", and only his son, Gao Xiong, understood him properly and that he did not want to talk to mortals. After that, he went back home, and again practiced "Falun Gong" for some time. Then he jumped from the roof of the building, holding his son Gao Xiong in his arms. A doctor was sent for, but his wife refused to let him treat her husband, saying that Li Hongzhi would protect him. Gao died, but his son was rescued by emergency treatment.

Xie Li (female), a teacher in the attached school of Chongqing Steel (Group) Ltd, began to practice Falun Gong in October 1997 with a dream of healing and keeping fit since she had heart disease. Xie Li was later obsessed in Li Hongzhi's fallacies and had heteroptics and hallucination. On January 27, 1997, she abruptly told her family that she had "opened the Third Eye" and "I see Master Li Hongzhi is summoning me in heaven". She then became mentally disordered and kept mumbling, without eating anything in the next three days. In the midday of January 29, Xie Li jumped from the balcony on the tenth floor while her husband Zhou An didn't noticed. In fluster, Zhou An seized only a sleeve of his wife's clothes and helplessly saw her drop to the ground, died.

Ma Jianmin, a retired worker from the Huabei Oilfield in north China, was often in a trance and became distraught after two years of practicing Falun Gong. Ma insisted that he had a "Falun" in his stomach. On September 4, 1998, Ma died at home after he cut his abdomen with a pair of scissors to look for the so-called wheel of law.

These are only several cases about Falun Gong practitioners who became mentally disordered and committed suicide because of Li Hongzhi's fallacies. From these stories, we can certainly understand the nature of Li Hongzhi and the Falun Gong cult organization in trampling on humanity and human rights.

IV. Falun Gong infringes upon right to freedom of speech and press

Freedom to speech and press is a basic right entitled to humans by the Constitution and an important part of human rights. What Li Hongzhi and his Falun Gong organization had done trampled on such a principle. On the one hand, Li Hongzhi and his Falun Gong organization did all they could to abuse such right by illegally publishing Li Hongzhi's books and tapes, holding classes and conferences to spread Li Hongzhi's fallacies. On the other hand, they unscrupulously trampled such a principle by infringing on others of their freedom on speech and press. They didn't allow others to have different opinion or criticize Li Hongzhi or "Falun Dafa". They didn't allow the news media to publish articles that criticized them. Any criticizing against Li Hongzhi and Falun Gong was stigmatized as "demons' interference with Dafa". They instigated Falun Gong practitioners to stigmatized and denounce people who dared to criticize them, to besiege the government bodies and news media in the name of "protecting Fa".

Since it emerged, Li Hongzhi's Falun Gong has been denounced and to some degree rejected. In order to have the practitioners stick to Falun Gong and suppress others, Li Hongzhi distorted the original meaning of the term "the mara path co-existing and mutually restraining" and fabricated the fallacy of "demon interfering with Dafa". In July 1996, the Press and Publications Administration issued a circular to ban sales of five Falun Gong related books, including "Zhuan Falun" and others. Guangming Daily then published an article revealing Falun Gong, which caused panic in Li Hongzhi and the Falun Gong organization. Neglected the legal regulation of the Administration, they not only ordered Falun Gong practitioners to "stand the test" by saying "don't be afraid. Your body can still sit there for mediation even if your head loses", but also organized, plotted and directed activities against the government, including a lot of incidents organized by Falun Gong in besieging government bodies and news media.

According to an incomplete statistics, Li Hongzhi and Falun Gong have instigated more than 300 illegal gatherings targeted at besieging news media and government departments, 78 cases of which has more than 300 people participated in. The 4.25 incident that was plotted by Li Hongzhi and his Falun Gong organization in which 10,000 people besieged Zhongnanhai, the location of the Central Government, for example, is an illegal incident that is anti-freedom, anti-democracy, anti-human rights, anti-science, anti-social and anti-government, against which Li Hongzhi and his followers intentionally said it was "for justice", and certain foreign "human rights defenders" wrongly claimed that it was "peaceful petition" or "peaceful demonstration". The direct cause for 4.25 incident is an article entitled "I' m Opposed To Qigong Practice By Teenagers" by Professor He Zuoxiu of the Chinese Academy of Sciences that was published on "Teenager Science-Technology Outlook", a Tianjin Normal University magazine. In the article, the author mentioned Falun Gong when he proposed his view on teenagers' practicing Qigong in the way of objective explaining facts and arguments. It is such an unknown magazine targeted at the teenagers and such an article written by an academician of Chinese Academy of Science in an aim of educating the teenagers with science that has stirred up the Li Hongzhi and Falun Gong organization - who boasted to be "truth, compassion and forbearance"- to have deceived, instigated and organized more that 6000 Falun Gong practitioners to besiege the office building of the magazine for 5 days from April 19 to 23. They rootlessly asked the magazine to restore fame for Li Hongzhi and Falun Gong; to have the author as well as the editor answer for it; to call back the sold magazines; to stop distributing the magazines and to deliver a statement on the magazine to apologize Li Hongzhi and Falun Gong. It could be learnt from this story that Li Hongzhi and his Falun Gong organization did not allow for any freedom of speech at all and that the kind of "freedom" sought by them were just freedom for them to do what they want to.

The government has been quite restraint with such illegal activities and tried to dissuaded the demonstrators. Right at that time, Li Hongzhi flew back to China from U.S to plot secretly for a scaling up of the incident. More than ten thousand blindfolded Falun Gong practitioners from areas such as Hebei, Liaoning, Shandong, Heilongjiang, Anhui, Tianjin and Beijing were instigated to have gathered in Beijing in just one night, and have made the shocking 4.25 incident by besieging Zhongnanhai, the government compound. 4.25 incident was a rehearsal of Li Hongzhi's ambition in toppling the government. Li Hongzhi and his conspirators thought that they were strong enough to realize their folly conspiracy. Their besieging Zhongnanhai was meant to impose Li Hongzhi's fallacies on Chinese people, replacing their guiding theory-Marxism, Leninism, philosophy thoughts of Mao Ze-dong and Deng Xiao-ping; to impose the cult ringleader Li Hongzhi on Chinese people as their spiritual leader, replacing Chinese Communist Party with Li Hongzhi and his Falun Gong organization. It is indeed unprecedented among the incidents of world cults. In fact, Li Hongzhi and his Falun Gong organization had overestimated themselves and underestimated the Chinese Communist party and the Chinese people. By doing this, they finally shot themselves in the foot. With their real face revealed to the public, their predeterminate failure is to come.

Both democracy and freedom are part of the superstructure that serve for the economic foundation. Democracy and freedom are the means instead of objective. In socialist countries like China, leaders of the organizations that are against the leadership of CCP, against Marxism, Leninism and socialist system, jeopardizing the fundamental interest of the country as well as its people shall never be entitled with such freedom. Banning on Falun Gong, the Chinese government is determined to ensure the basic right of the majority, social stability and the fundamental nation interest.

V. Falun Gong infringes upon the freedom of religious belief

The Chinese Communist Party is a proletariat party based on Marxism and Leninism. Dialectical Materialism and Historical Materialism of Marxism and Leninism are of thorough antitheism. Marxism and Leninism not only properly demonstrate the nature, origin and social role of religion, but also suggeste the right altitude and policy that should be taken in regard to religion. Based on the Marxist philosophy on religion-a scientific viewpoint and method for us to understand religion and the specific situation in China, the Chinese government has developed the Policy on Freedom of Religious Belief-a fundamental long-term policy on treating and addressing religious issues. By wantonly trampling on the principle of freedom of religious belief and debasing other religions, Li Hongzhi and his Falun Gong organization dreamt of having people  to abandon their religious belief and convert to the Falun Gong cult, so as to make conflicts and troubles among people with different belief.

Although claimed that "Falun Dafa" was not religion, Li Hongzhi compared "Falun Dafa" with religions over and over again, saying, "the existing religions cannot save people from torment any more", while "Falun Dafa is the only highest Buddhist law", "universal law" and "the only ladder that help people to heaven". He even boasted that "Falun Dafa is a magnificent palace while Christianity is just a very small, simple room", and that "he is the highest hierarch much wiser than Sakyamuni, Jesus Christ, Laozi and other founders of religions". In order to make people who believed in any other religions convert to his "Falun Dafa", Li Hongzhi said, "I tell you this because I'm afraid you may be led astray by the religions that cannot relieve people from their torment." (Falun Fofa: Teaching the Fa  in the First Fa Conference in North America). In such trickeries, Li Hongzhi and his Falun Gong organization glorified a swindler like Li Hongzhi as a new supreme savior and a supreme god with "super theurgy", countless "Law Bodies" and supernatural functions that dictated the human beings as well as the universe for "having comprehended the universal truth and secret of life and being able to predict everything." After such efforts of apotheosizing, Li Hongzhi ordered the Falun Gong practitioners to regard his words as "lection" and worship him as a hierarch, making the practitioners dare not even directly call his name, a way similar to that of the dark, fatuous and religious authority dominated middle ages. In the Falun Gong organization, practitioners were only entitled with the Freedom of worshiping Li Hongzhi, believing his fallacies other than any religious belief.

Li Hongzhi and his "Falun Dafa" was particularly hostile to material and antitheism. He said, "If you're against science, although it won't kill you, people will rise up together to attack you. Everyone will say you're 'superstitious' and ridiculous. It will devalue you in society to be worthless…Since science can't prove the existence of gods or the existence of virtue, and since it doesn't know about karmic retribution, when you mention these things people will strike at you with this big club - science - and say you're 'superstitious'."(Falun Fofa:Teaching the Fa at the Fa Conference in Europe). Since Marxist materialism and antitheism co-existed with science, Li Hongzhi would certainly be denounced by the antitheists as long as he boasted to be a new supreme savior. Li Hongzhi surely didn't want to see that happened, therefore he instigated Falun Gong practitioners with any possible lies and trickeries to act against Marxist materialism and antitheism.

 The freedom of religious belief  means the freedom to choose believing or disbelieving in religion; the freedom of believing in this religion or other religion; the freedom of believing in certain rites in one religion and; the freedom to stop believing in religion. Based on such principles, it can be concluded that words and actions of Li Hongzhi and his Falun Gong organization have infringed upon human freedom of religious belief instead of defending the principle of religious belief freedom. Therefore it is justified to ban on Falun Gong and disclose Li Hongzhi's fallacies in pursuing the principle of ensuring freedom of religious belief and fully implementing the policy on freedom of religious belief.

To conclude, Li Hongzhi and his Falun Gong trampled on human rights and endangered the fundamental interest of the nation as well as its people, which already caused serious consequence to people, the society and the nation. Crimes and evil deeds of the Falun Gong organization were no less harmful than any other foreign cults. If no action is taken to outlaw Falun Gong but let it freely develop and expand, the future of China as well as its people will certainly be dimmed and the fruit of decades of Chinese economic development will vanish. If that happens, how can Chinese people's human rights be ensured? After the 4.25 incident, Chinese government developed proper policies and took balanced measures in disclosing and banning on Falun Gong based on the facts of illegal activities of Li Hongzhi and his Falun Gong organization revealed through abundant investigations. In this struggle, the Party and the Government had a clear distinction on the two kinds of conflicts by screening cult ringleaders and its core members with the majority Falun Gong practitioners. As for those obsessed diehards and some practitioners who have offended the law, we have done a lot of painstaking work in light of the guideline of "uniting the majority, educating the majority, converting the majority and relieving the majority", so that the majority Falun Gong practitioners have recognized the true feature of Li Hongzhi and his Falun Gong and have eventually cast off the cult. Only the few core members who have seriously violated the law and those plotters and wire-pullers with ulterior motives are relentlessly punished. The Government's banning on Falun Gong is a kind of justified action in maintaining integrity of the Constitution and the legal system, ensuring social stability, guaranteeing security of all Chinese people, including the majority Falun Gong practitioners and their fundamental interest, and defending human rights.

The eventual victory of this struggle would certainly witness Chinese people improving in their understanding of scientific materialism and antitheism as well as their understanding of cult; witness an improvement in Chinese socialist material civilization and spiritual civilization; and contributing a lot to defending human rights. Any unbiased people will draw such a right conclusion.
