(ChinaAid, Midland, TX—August 27, 2021) Bob Fu, PhD., founder/president of ChinaAid, shares the following information regarding Falun Gong the following in his recent book, The Politics of Inclusive Pluralism: A Proposed Foundation for Religious Freedom...:

At times, State leaders assert that alien religions plan to subvert the Party’s rule. The following, for example, depicts China’s explanation for banning the Falun Gong movement:

Li Hongzhi fabricated the so-called Falun Gong by copying some qi gong practices and adding a lot of superstitious beliefs and ravings. Li propagated the explosion of the earth and the doomsday fallacy to fool the public. These concepts have already resulted in physical and mental injuries and even death of people, undermining social stability. Falun Gong bears strong resemblance to heterodox groups like Branch Davidian in the United States and Japanese Aum Doomsday Cult [. . .]. Falun Gong organization, advocating malicious fallacies, has put people’s life at risk and wreaked havoc on society.

...in 1999, after China banned Falun Gong as an “evil cult” (xie jiao), the State jailed the religion’s core leaders. In October 1999, following the primary crackdown on Falun Gong, the National People’s Congress Standing Committee adopted the Legislative Resolution on Banning Heretic Cults. This offered a sense of legitimacy to the clampdown on Falun Gong and other qigong or cultic groups. Yang further notes, “In the following years provincial governments issued numerous temporary or draft ordinances and administrative orders aimed at controlling religious groups. Eventually these administrative orders were consolidated into the State Council’s Regulations of Religious Affairs that took effect on 1 March 2005.” In many reported cases of false allegations by the Chinese government to try to validate attacks on certain religions, the evidence produced fails to support the charges.
