Falun gong protesters prosecuted because gongs were “too loud”

Chinese Embassy officials present during the protest of local Falun Gong members could not concentrate because of the sounds of the large gongs carried by the protesters. “Striking a gong makes a loud and annoying noise,” said a Chinese diplomat. “That’s why we have banned Falun Gong in China, and we hope that Singapore will follow suit.” Lawyer M. Ravi retorted that “gongs are not loud, and are one of the few classical Chinese inventions that had a major impact on modern society.”
