  新华社日内瓦4月12日电 参加联合国人权委员会第56届会议的中国代表团特别顾问刘京12日在这里举行记者招待会,介绍中国政府依法处理邪教“法轮功”的有关情况,并回答了记者提出的有关问题。
  
  刘京首先介绍说,对于利用邪教戕害生灵,世界上任何一个负责任的政府都不能放任不管。邪教“法轮功”从事了大量违法犯罪活动,中国政府根据刑法第300条等有关惩处利用邪教犯罪和其他犯罪活动的规定,依法对给社会造成严重危害的邪教犯罪分子以惩处,这得到了全社会的拥护,完全是合法的、正当的。中国司法机关对邪教教主李洪志发出了通缉令,对触犯刑律的邪教“法轮功”骨干分子李昌等人追究刑事责任,完全是依法进行的。在法律和事实面前,李昌等人在法庭审理中已表示认罪服法。
  
  参加记者招待会的有《纽约时报》、美联社、法新社、共同社、新华社和中国中央电视台等新闻媒体的记者。在回答一位记者关于“法轮功”对社会造成了什么危害的问题时,刘京说,据不完全统计,因痴迷“法轮功”而自杀和拒医拒药致死者达1559人,致精神障碍者651人,杀人害命者11人,致残者144人。他说,“法轮功”还使成千上万的家庭失去了以往的和睦和幸福;其头目大量非法聚敛钱财;非法组织围攻对“法轮功”有不同看法甚至稍有微词的新闻机构、学校、科研单位、政府机关,达300多次,严重扰乱社会公共秩序,严重侵犯他人权利和人身安全。

 

  有记者问,中国处理“法轮功”组织是否影响宗教自由。刘京回答说,最早揭露“法轮功”邪教真实面目的正是中国宗教界的一些人士。依法打击邪教就是为了保障中国一亿多信仰不同宗教的人士的宗教自由。
  
  当有记者问为什么在中国会有那么多人练习“法轮功”时,刘京回答说,同世界上其他邪教一样,邪教“法轮功”的教主李洪志也编造了一套邪说来欺骗“法轮功”练习者,对他们进行精神控制。个别西方国家对中国的指责也是以一些谎言,特别是以“法轮功”组织编造的谎言为依据的,这是根本站不住脚的。李洪志为虚张声势,抬高身价,编造说“法轮功”有一亿练习者。事实是,曾经练过“法轮功”的人只有约200万,而且他们中绝大多数人现在已经摆脱了“法轮功”的精神桎梏,过上了正常人的生活。对所有一度迷恋“法轮功”的人,中国政府和社会各界对他们的关心、帮助是真诚的,负责任的,也是成功的。
  
  刘京还举例说,“法轮功”组织曾炮制了一份所谓中国政府镇压“法轮功”的报告,汇集了他们一再引用的所谓“法轮功”练习者受迫害的事例。中国有关部门对这份所谓的报告中涉及的103个事例进行了调查。结论是:其中属捏造事实的33例,占32%;属歪曲事实的58例,占56.3%;属具体情节严重失实的10例,占9.7%,查无其人的2例,占2%。也就是说,没有一例是真实的。“法轮功”组织被取缔后,一些“法轮功”痴迷者到北京的一些公共场所企图进行非法聚集,有关部门对这些人予以劝离或带离并遣返回家,这在一个时期内总共涉及约3.5万人次,而“法轮功”组织却编造说,有3.5万多人被逮捕。
  
  刘京强调说,“法轮功”为编造谎言,动用了他们所有的想象力,这并不奇怪,因为邪教就是以谎言、邪说起家的,离开了欺骗他们就无法生存。一些西方国家以此指责中国,不能不令人惊讶,使人愤慨。

 

China's handling of Falun Gong according to law just for safeguarding of human rights

By Liu Jing, Chinese Delegate to the 56th Session of the U.N. Commission on Human Rights

"Falun Gong" is a kind of cult that has emerged in some parts of China over recent years.

Like other cults in the world, the founder of "Falun Gong," Li Hongzhi, concocted and propagated a set of lies and heretical fallacies to instill them into practitioners of "Falun gong," so as to control them spiritually. In order to make its heretical fallacies clearly known to the public, we patiently extract them as follows:

-- "The practitioners of Falun Dafa are forbidden to go to see a doctor, otherwise you no longer belong to Falun Dafa." Medicine is a dirty thing."

-- "The laws formulated by human beings restrict and isolate people in a mechanical way."

-- "None of the existing religions, whether Buddhism, Protestantism, Catholicism or Judaism, can save people from torment any more. They are all on a low plane." "Most of the religions emerging in this century, including many new religions emerging in various places of the world in the previous centuries, are fake."

-- "The Earth serves as the rubbish heap of the universe," "It is an apple which has been rotten off thoroughly." Therefore, "the human beings on our Earth now may experience catastrophe." "We have found that mankind has experienced 81 great calamities in the past, and there were only a few people who survived."

-- "More than three million Chinese were killed in the Nanjing massacre. That is nothing to us." "Hitler killed a lot of people, and many people died in World War II. All these were caused by changes of astronomical phenomena."

-- "Now I am the only person in the world who can spread the orthodox Law of Buddha. Therefore, I am doing a deed never before done by our predecessors."

-- "I have countless law-bodies. I can protect you wherever you go, even if you go to the moon." "I can look after as many people as I want to, even the entire human race."

-- "Science is developed from a wrong basis." "The law of universal gravitation is wrong." "Darwin is the greatest disgrace for Europe."

-- "I am the oldest man in this universe, even my parents are made by me."

The above-mentioned fallacies are just conveniently extracted from Li Hongzhi's speeches, records, videotapes and books. People with the slightest common sense can see through them at once. Now Li Hongzhi tries to deny them. But he will never succeed in doing so in front of these irrefutable evidences. It is with these fallacies and such lies as "truthfulness, benevolence and tolerance," "dispelling karma," "leading to a higher level of cultivation" and "achieving all-round fulfillment" that Li Hongzhi deceives, benumbs and controls the practitioners.

Actually, it was some people in the religious circles who were the first to disclose the true features of "Falun Gong" as a cult. The media and some relatives of the victims of "Falun Gong" also continuously disclosed and accused it with facts of its harm to people's mind and health.

Lu Xingchong's wife became obsessed with "Falun Gong" in 1995. She was so possessed that although suffering from serious illness, she did not dare to take medicine regardless of advice from her family. She devoted herself wholeheartedly to "Falun Gong" wishing to ascend to Heaven. As a result, she couldn't suffer anymore and her mind collapsed. On January 23, 1998, she committed suicide by cutting her throat. From then on, Lu Xingchong has been unceasingly accusing "Falun Gong" of its evils to the public and requesting the government to outlaw "Falun Gong." On April 10, Lu delivered a speech of accusation at the 56th Session of the U.N. Commission on Human Rights.

The "Falun Gong" cult has already caused serious damages to society. Incomplete statistics show that 1559 people have died of suicide or refusal to accept medical treatment as a result of crazing for "Falun Gong," 651 people led to psychological distress, 11 people killed others, 144 people became disabled, and thousands upon thousands of families lost their previous harmony and happiness. Furthermore, the "Falun Gong" organization has amassed enormous illegal funds and engineered more than 300 incidents involving besieging and attacking news agencies, schools, scientific research institutions and government organs holding different views from "Falun Gong," seriously disturbing social order and violating other people's rights and personal safety.

Any responsible government will never take a laissez-faire attitude toward a cult and allow it to injure people's life. It is just because "Falun Gong" has massively committed illegal activities that its criminals having caused serious damages to society were punished in accordance with the provisions formulated in Articles 300, etc of the Criminal Law related to the punishment for offenses in the name of a cult. This action is fully legitimate and justified and therefore has won support from society at large. The Chinese judiciary body has put the cult founder Li Hongzhi on the wanted list and prosecuted its key members including Li Chang for their criminal responsibility. All these actions were carried out strictly according to law. Before the law and facts, Li Chang and other criminals had to plead guilty in the court.

The majority of the "Falun Gong" practitioners didn't see its true features as a cult. They were taken in as victims, and were innocent. We carried out a policy of persuasion, education and protection toward them. To this end, the relevant authorities of the Chinese government and people from all walks of life showed the utmost tolerance and patience toward them by helping them to break away with the spiritual control of the cult without any discrimination or exclusion against them. Li Hongzhi and his followers have claimed again and again that there are 100 million "Falun Gong" practitioners. Actually this has been exaggerated by 50 times the actual figure just for bluffing and raising their social status. In fact, there are no more than two million people who have practiced "Falun Gong." Up till now, over 98% of them have broken away with the mind control of "Falun Gong" and are now living normal lives. The Chinese government and society at large are sincere, responsible and successful in caring for and helping those indulged in "Falun Gong."

Some Western countries launched accusations against China on the issue of "Falun Gong." This is thoroughly unwarranted. They describe the handling of the "Falun gong," which has caused serious harm to people's lives and health and their families, as violation of human rights. This is down-right confusion of right with wrong. It is indeed a mockery of human rights and should be condemned by the international community. Despite the fact that "Falun Gong" has jeopardized society and its true features as a cult have been fully revealed to the public, some Western countries still try to absolve it from guilt and exercise double standards on the issue of cult. Obviously they do all this with ulterior motives.

The accusations launched by those Western countries are based on lies, including those fabricated by "Falun Gong." Therefore they are not tenable. "Falun Gong" has concocted a report on 103 cases of so-called persecution of "Falun Gong" practitioners and massive violation of human rights by China. However, investigation by the related authorities over all those 103 cases reveals as follows: 33 cases are make-up stories, accounting for 32% of the total number; 58 cases distorting the facts, 56.3%; 10 cases clearly inconsistent with the facts, 9.7%; and 2 cases without any evidence, 2%. That means none of those cases is true. After the outlawing of "Falun Gong," some infatuated practitioners held illegal assemblies in some public places in Beijing. They were persuaded to leave or led away or sent back home by the related authorities. That involves totally more than 35,000 persons. However, "Falun Gong" spread the lie that more than 35,000 people were arrested. In order to fabricate lies, "Falun Gong" has stretched its imagination by the farthest extent possible. This is natural because cults invariably build themselves up by lies and heretical fallacies; they cannot survive without cheating. It is astonishing and exasperating that some Western countries should base their accusations against China upon such lies.

Cult is a common scourge in the world today. The Branch Davidians, the People' Temple, the Aum Shinrikyo, the Solar Temple, The Movement for the Restoration of the Ten Commandments of God as well as "Falun Gong" have all caused serious harm to human rights. In order to protect human rights, researches should be carried out as to how to prevent cults from harming the life, health and mind of mankind. In this context, all countries should enhance cooperation to fight against cults together. China would lie to learn other countries' helpful experience and contribute with its own experience to the global effort for the prevention of and the fight against cults -- the social narcotic drug.
