Five Falungong practitioners were persecuted to death as the policy of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) party continues unabated. Beijing officials have denied what some say is the persecution of minorities.

Five Falungong practitioners die following CCP "purge"

From March 14 to April 12, sources say that the CCP victimized five mainland Chinese Falun Gong members in less than a month. They were sent to prisons and detention centers by communist authorities for their belief, reported the Epoch Times.

Falun Gong, also identified as Falun Dafa, is a Buddhist-inspired spiritual practice that started in the late 1990s with an estimated 70-100 million followers. 

Suspecting its enormous popularity, former-Party leader Jiang Zemin started a campaign to eradicate Falun Gong on July 20, 1999. Since then, the Falun Gong practitioners have lost their right to practice peaceful exercises.

For following Falun Gong, millions of Chinese have been fired from their jobs, expelled from school, jailed, tortured, or killed. According to the Falun Dafa InfoCenter, they are brainwashed, abused, and even slaughtered for their organs, noted Falun Info.

Lu Guanru

Based on reports from Minghui.org, last April 4, 2021, Guanru was said to have died from a hemorrhagic stroke. He was in detention at the Tai Lai Prison in Daqing in Heilongjiang Province; his age was 69.

Mngui is the official website that reports on the global Falun community, according to its web page. Lu was reportedly kidnapped on November 9, 2018, along with 60 more in the province. The suspected cause of death was torture while imprisoned illegally. The five Falungong practitioners were persecuted to death by authorities.
