Comparing how practitioners can freely practice Falun Dafa in Taiwan versus the ongoing brutal persecution and suppression of practitioners in China, she said, “Taiwan and China seemed to be two different worlds.”

“This is unbelievable,” said Ms. Jin. She was not aware of the ongoing persecution in China and said, “Although practitioners in China are subjected to being arrested at any time, they are still firmly holding on to their faith in Falun Dafa. Practitioners overseas should treasure and cherish their cultivation all the more.”
