Minghui Online tells lies about my wife’s death

21 Feb

My name is Suo Wubin and I’m 62 years old, a retired worker of LYC Bearing Corporation based in Luoyang, Henan Province. I live at Tonglezhai Village of Jianxi District in Luoyang and my wife is Liu Xiangzhen. She died of myocardial infarction on January 7, 2009, at the age of 60.

The death of my wife made the entire family sad and I cried a lot those days. But before the first anniversary of my poor wife’s death and when I was still in mourning, Minghui Online published an article about my deceased wife and me with fabricated facts, which salted at my green wound. I think they take me as the cannon fodder in the name of making bitter complaints for my wife and me.

Here is the screenshot of the article published on Minghui Online:

After my wife Liu Xiangzhen passed away on January 7, 2009, Suo Xiaoxia, my eldest daughter, asked me to live with her for a while so that I wouldn’t be lonely. One day in middle October that year, I was taking a walk on Songshan Road in Jianxi District, a fellow practitioner surnamed Mei saw me and shouted at me: “Old Suo, come over here.” At a corner of wall, after looking around nervously she taking out a leaflet from her pocket and said in a low voice: “Minghui Online has an article about you and your wife.” “What did they say?” I asked. She put the leaflet into my hand and said: “Here you are, take it home and read it yourself.” Then she hurried away.

After reading the article, I was shocked. “Oh my, how can they tell such lies and stir up trouble? I can speak out of conscience that the things they put down in the article are nothing but nonsense.”
My wife Liu Xiangzhen had suffered hypertension and heart disease. She had taken drugs and injections but was not cured completely and she had always been weak. In early 1999, she got to know Falun Gong and heard that Falun Gong could “remove illness and build up health”, help you to “be a good person”, and make you “reach Consummation”. Under the deception and spiritual control of Falun Gong, she became obsessed with it and regarded it more important than her own life. During her practicing of Falun Gong, she had heart attacks sometimes and when our children took her to hospital, she would sit cross-legged and shouted at them: “The disciples of Dafa are afraid of nothing and we can purify our body by practicing and removing karma.” If she got better, she attributed the credit to Falun Gong and would do whatever she believed right for Falun Gong. In order to show her determination to achieve further advancement and her devotion to the “Master”, she would save money from groceries to buy a large amount of books, CDs, badges, and pictures about Falun Gong and join other fellow practitioners in distributing pamphlets. She had been so obsessed with it.

To be honest, under the influence of my wife, I also believed in Falun Gong at that time. And I retired and had nothing to do at home, feeling empty and lonely. So I participated in the practice, too. After the government banned Falun Gong as a cult, I used to tell others this was unfair and unjust.

At half past nine on the evening of January 7, 2009, my wife had a heart attack. She lay on bed, sweating a lot. Her face was pale and her body was shaking. She had difficulty in breathing and the children decided to send her to hospital. But I prayed in silence: “Master, please bless your disciple, please bless my wife Liu Xiangzhen.”

Things got worse and our children called 120 for ambulance. The Affiliated Hospital of Henan University of Science and Technology sent an ambulance and my son, three daughters, and two nephews accompanied my wife to hospital. At half past ten on the evening of January 7 and one hour after she reached the hospital, my wife passed away. Suo Zhongxin, one of my nephews asked the doctor about the cause of death and the doctor told him: “She had coronary heart disease and she wouldn’t have died if she took medicine on a regular basis.”

Our son and daughters cried after losing their mother and Suo Xiaoxia, our eldest daughter, cried over her mother’s body: “Mom, Falun Gong killed you.”

But, instead of being a responsible organization, Falun Gong published an article on Minghui Online and blamed the CPC and the government for the death of my wife. Minghui Online published such an article without investigation to deceive the public; I don’t know why they would do such a thing. I used to be a “disciple of Dafa” and we should be honest about things so as to take things as they really are. I felt ashamed of and angry at the fabrication and malicious lies that Minghui Online has told.

Firstly, I’m responsible in saying that it is a fact that Liu Xiangzhen had practiced Falun Gong for a long time. I know it, my family knows it, and some fellow practitioners and neighbors know it. But neither my wife nor I had been punished by law or received any disciplinary punishment. We hadn’t met with any officials in Jianxi District and no governmental official had visited us at home. Then, how can the “evil CPC harass and threaten” us? How can the “evil CPC persecute her to death”?

Secondly, the article published on Minghui Online said they “searched for and confiscated by force” all the books and things about “Dafa” but that was not the truth. My beloved wife passed away and I started to doubt about Falun Gong for the first time. At the mentioning of their mother, my son and daughters said it was Falun Gong that had killed their mother. So they wanted to burn all the books, materials, and CDs; but I stopped them. I wanted to keep these things in memory of her. After my wife passed away, I cried a lot at seeing the books she had read before. Son and daughters didn’t want to see me so sad and, with my approval, Suo Xiaoxia my eldest daughter and Suo Hongwei my son contacted with the Village Committee of Tonglezhai for the handing in of all the books, materials, CDs, and other things about Falun Gong through them to superior authority. What I say are facts and my son, my daughters, my nephews, and the village committee can all testify for me. The fact is that we were willing to turn in the books and materials and Minghui Online told a lie about their “confiscating by force”. I don’t know what the source is for this that Minghui Online depends on.

Thirdly, as a former “disciple of Dafa”, I have several questions for “Master” Li Hongzhi and Minghui Online:

The first question is: Liu Xiangzhen, my wife, had practiced Falun Gong for ten years and followed the requirements of “Master” Li Hongzhi and Falun Gong on “making further advancement and real cultivation”, doing good things and accumulating virtue. She practiced hard from early morning to late at night. But why hadn’t she “remove karma” and purify body but died miserably of illness at an early age?

The second question is: Liu Xiangzhen, my wife, had practiced Falun Gong for years and followed the instructions of “Master” Li Hongzhi and Falun Gong on “publicizing Fa”, “clarifying truth”, and “saving people”. She usually went out at night to distribute pamphlets at the risk of violating the state laws. When she was dying, where was the “numerous law bodies” of “Master”? If you don’t protect such a devoted disciple as Liu Xiangzhen, what kind of people will you protect?

The third question is: Liu Xiangzhen, my wife, died of illness and that’s a fact. Why will Minghui Online make use of a deceased person to deceive others and to blame the CPC and the government for it? What’s your real intention?

The fourth question is: I was willing to go to the law education class and it helped me to tell right from wrong, to get rid of the obsession with Falun Gong, and to experience the warm feelings in this world. I wonder where the author of the article published on Minghui Online got the news about taking me by force to the “brainwashing class”. What do you really want?
