Officials blacklist pastor as cult member, deny travel documents

(Nanyang, Henan—Nov. 14, 2016) A pastor in China’s central Henan province was refused a passport and a pass to Hong Kong and Macau on Friday when officials incorrectly labeled him as a member of a persecuted spiritual practice.

When Kang Jinqun, pastor of Jesus Christ Church in Nanyang, Henan, went to the Exit and Entry Administration Bureau of the Sheqi County Public Security Bureau to apply for a passport and a pass to Hong Kong and Macau on Nov. 11, authorities refused to issue his documents after scanning his ID card and discovering he had been blacklisted as a Falun Gong practitioner. The local police station issued a certificate proving that he was a pastor, and he attempted to re-apply, but was denied again.

Because he was identified as Falun Gong, Kang anticipates having trouble traveling in the future.

Also known as Falun Dafa, Falun Gong is a spiritual practice that centers on moral principles and incorporates traditional Chinese exercises and meditation. It gained popularity in China in the late 1990s, shortly before then-president Jiang Zemin ordered a severe crackdown on the practice that is still being carried out today. Since it is considered a cult by the Chinese government, Falun Gong adherents are routinely incarcerated, with many facing extreme abuse.

In 2006, Canadian politicians and human rights activists David Matas and David Kilgour published a report entitled Report into Allegations of Organ Harvesting of Falun Gong Practitioners in China, uncovering a massive operation to remove the organs of living Falun Gong prisoners and sell them to hospitals on the black market. According to The Epoch Times, Matas and Kilgour recently updated their research, indicating the malfeasance continues to this day, despite the Communist Party’s denial.
