Television signals illegally broadcast by the Falun Gong cult cut into transmissions using the Sino Satellite (SINOSAT) from June 23 to 30, blocking the World Cup finals for viewers in some rural and remote areas in China. The People's Daily outlined the anti-humanity, anti-science and anti-society nature of the Falun Gong cult in a commentary to be issued Tuesday.
The People's Daily outlined the anti-humanity, anti-science and anti-society nature of the Falun Gong cult in a commentary to be issued Tuesday.
The commentary, titled "New crimes of Falun Gong cult," says overseas Falun Gong organizations, in defiance of universal condemnation, hijacked Sinosat, committing another serious crime, a breach of international law and public morality.
The commentary says mankind has entered an era of information, in which the smooth and safe transmission of information ensures the normal operation and development of society.
The international community has adopted relevant conventions and a set of complete regulations and rules, which the international community generally recognizes and abides by. This is an example of human intelligence, a symbol of social progress and civilization and a reliable guarantee for economic developmentand social stability.
The overseas organization of the Falun Gong cult attacked the Sinosat, interrupted normal television program signals and compromised the safety of public information, infringing upon public interests.
This was a flagrant challenge to international order, social morality and civilization, the commentary says, noting such an illegal act is sure to be denounced by the international community.
Disregarding rules senselessly, being hostile to humanity and doing as they want are the common characteristics of all cult organizations in the world, the commentary says.
Sinosat is used to transmit radio and television signals to China's rural and remote mountainous regions where people formerlyhad no access to such information.
Falun Gong has always disturbed and destroyed things which the general public enjoy and from which the general public benefits, the commentary points out.
The commentary calls the attack on Sinosat by the overseas organization of Falun Gong a high crime of the cult led by Li Hongzhi.
It says the attack has once again proved that the cult organization is a common enemy of mankind.
The commentary calls on people to be fully aware of the true nature and harm of Falun Gong and to be on guard at all times because the nature of Falun Gong as a cult means it will continue causing trouble and destruction.
However, history shows it is doomed to failure and infamy.
