Statement from the Falun Dafa Association on Shan Ju Lin

Some recent media reports have linked Ms Shan Ju Lin to Falun Dafa (Falun Gong).

The Falun Dafa Association of Australia, Queensland Branch Inc. does not consider Ms Shan Ju Lin a practitioner of Falun Dafa (Falun Gong).

Public statements by Ms Lin on political and social issues are her personal opinions and are in no way representative of Falun Dafa.

Further, the Falun Dafa Association is not affiliated with Ms Lin’s World Harmony Society, although some Falun Dafa practitioners have attended Harmony Day activities organised by Shan Ju Lin, along with other community groups. Some of the issues highlighted in the Issues section of the World Harmony Society website (e.g. the persecution of Falun Dafa practitioners, including forced organ harvesting of practitioners in China) are obviously issues we are also concerned about.

Falun Dafa is based on the principles of truthfulness, compassion and forbearance, and Falun Dafa practitioners aim to live by these principles in their speech, behaviour and every facet of their lives.
