Account of Mistreatment of Christians in China
Posted by Rick on February 15, 2008
YUNAN PROVINCE, China, Feb. 14 /Christian Newswire/ — China Aid has learned that two Christian women, Meng Xiu Lan- 55, and Zhou Cheng Xiu- 53, were detained by police in Jun Tun County on February 2, 2008. Policemen from Jun Tun police department detained the women after they were found distributing Christmas cards. The two women were first threatened and mocked by police before being stripped completely nude and frisked violently.
Police then handcuffed the two women and escorted them back to their homes. After searching the house, police illegally confiscated CD’s, handouts, Bibles, song books and calenders, without proper documentation.
The suffering and humiliation that these two Christian women were forced to endure is both shocking and horrendous. The PRC has failed to be consistent in its rhetoric of religious freedom and rule of law.
Such behavior should not be tolerated by any society, especially one chosen to host the World Olympic Games. We encourage the CPC to make amends to these innocent victims by restoring the property and dignity that was wrongfully taken from them.
