Dear Mr. Ranveer Singh
Congratulations! Through sheer grit, determination and talent, you have earned a place for yourself and stand tall among your peers and enjoy the adulation and demigod status with a huge fan-following not only in our country but also across a country like China.
Your recent TV commercial for a mobile phone is a big hit and may be sales have gone through the roof. You are probably aware that like hot selling Chinese mobiles there are other Chinese products which have pushed out our very own Indian products. Why?
I have informed celebrities before and I would also like to draw your attention to certain facts behind Chinese products which celebrities endorse. Your conscience will hopefully tell you what you should do.
Did you know China’s economic power is the result of sending innocent people who have committed no crimes but do not follow the Party’s ideologies, to forced labour camps to serve as a large scale force of free slave labour? More than one crore people, including ‘political prisoners’, work in thousands of forced labour camps across China. China tops the world with more than 2,300 executions per year. Remember, every time you buy a product ‘Made in China,’ you are funding and empowering a brutal regime.
A lot of Chinese goods available in the Indian market are made by prisoners under appalling conditions in labour camps. They are deprived of sleep and have to slog away without food or breaks. The shocker is that they are killed on demand for their organs that are matched and sold to the highest bidder. It is a billion dollar industry supported by the state government. The victims are mostly Falun Dafa practitioners who practice an exercise and meditation practice that promotes good health with an emphasis on improving one’s moral character
Last year during Diwali there was a public service campaign calling for Boycotting Chinese goods. It is ironical that a popular Chinese mobile phone maker sold a record one million smart phones in India in 18 days during the Diwali festive season, despite calls for boycott of Chinese goods in the country.
70 million people practicing Falun Dafa, a peaceful spiritual practice with exercise and meditation became the soft target and are being killed on demand to supply an ongoing illegal organ transplant industry. The Chinese government ex-chief Jiang Zemin not being able to come to terms with the popularity of Falun Dafa introduced by Master Li Hongzhi in 1992 with 70 million Chinese people practicing it banned it on 20 July 1999. Since then for almost 20 years Falun Dafa practitioners are systematically imprisoned, tortured and killed for their organs. Their bodies are often cremated so that there is no evidence left.

When all over the world, patients have to wait for years for organ transplants, in China you can get it in a week’s time. Due to the increase of available organs for sale in China, many foreigners travel there for transplantation. 10,000 organs are transplanted in China every year, even though China has no effective national organ donation system.
I would least like to put you in a dilemma. What I think you could do is to make amends by telling more people of these crimes against humanity. You can also at an opportune moment talk to the corporate decision makers or people who matter in the Chinese government to put an end to the persecution. It is a moral issue – a human rights issue.
I respect your integrity and your exemplary sense of ethics, at the core of your being and it is demonstrated often when you have stood up for social causes. Since you have such a large fan following and are a role model to countless youngsters, you have a moral responsibility to take a stance to be on the right side of humanity.
Since 2004 Falun Dafa exercise and meditation practice has been introduced in schools and colleges across the length and breadth of India. Falun Dafa was well received by the Police academies in Delhi and Hyderabad. Falun Dafa adherents were invited by several large organizations to introduce it to their senior executives and interestingly Jail superintendents too have requested to introduce the exercise and meditation practice to inmates.
It will be of special interest to you that in the Mumbai film industry there are many ‘behind the scene’ artistes such as hair stylists, make-up artists, Talent search agencies, photographers who have found strength in Falun Dafa to overcome the stress of the glitz and glamour world.
Thank you for your patience and I look forward to some positive action from you.
Very truly yours
Falun Dafa Association of India
