The international response calls for the halting of these immoral actions, but China still claims that it is destroying an evil institution. The simple fact China denies its members freedom of religion violates the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which China has signed, but the violence against its people if they adhere to Falun Gong beliefs is a gross abuse of its power. Although China bans many religions, there is special emphasis on the Falun Gong, and many wonder why. One highly possible reason is that the growth, international reach, and popularity of the Falun Gong threatens the universal power the CCP holds in China, weakening the government, and therefore leading to the destruction of the threat: the Falun Gong. The Falun Gong, despite what the CCP may say, is not an evil insti... ... middle of paper ... ... Tiananmen incident, Falun Gong, and the Beijing Olympics.
Persecution of Falun Gong Becomes Unlawful Why should I become a victim to what I believe in? The Chinese Republic has brainwashed,tortured, and killed most the population of the Falun Gong members. The Falun Gong itself is a peaceful religion, that believed in maintaining a healthy lifestyle with calm meetings and meditating. So, what exactly made this group become the major enemy of the Republic? The type of punishments that the Falun Gong members had to endure, were made to dehumanize the people in the Republic.
The Tibetan people who survived the killing were denied what most consider primal freedoms. One of which is freedom of religion. Tibetan religious practice was forcibly suppressed until 1979 (Tibet Support Group UK 4). Also, in early 1989, Chinese authorities undertook a campaign to tighten control over religious practice. This campaign intensified the crackdown on the pro-democracy movement (Churchward 1).
Although the Chinese government claimed they provide the public with religious freedoms to believe in or worship whatever religion they want I am able to prove that this is not the case. A religious sect called 'Falun Gong' which is a mixture of Buddhism and Taoism, whose practices involve breathing and meditation, are one of the victims of the religious discrimination that took place in China. On July 22nd 1999 hundreds of thousands of books and leaflets, made by the Falun Gong were thrown into bonfires and burnt whilst a type of witch-hunt was in progress. The government blamed this outrageous conduct on the fact that they thought the sect's leader was planning to suppress the communist party. In my point of view I think this accusation is ridiculous as the members of the Falun gong are all middle class, law abiding, upstanding members of the public who have probably never been on the wrong side of the law.
In this case even the citizens of China might believe it’s a sin to kill a baby, but do the people in the government? Are their leaders cruel or at the very least committing a sin by preventing over populating and bringing their country to ruins? I have never heard of someone thinking logically as a sin. But when that logic is put into a harmful position people see the here and now, what type of damage it is doing that we can see without eyes, not the bigger more catastrophic damage it will do when they are no longer around. It is hard for anyone to sit around and not do anything to help when we see people getting hurt or dying.
