Quan Jian’s 30-meter gilt statue built in Dafeng District, Yancheng City, Jiangsu Province, has given the local authorities a “difficult question” – should this “pharmacist Buddha statue” be removed?
On the afternoon of January 2, the person in charge of the Li Department of the Religious Affairs Department of the Yancheng Municipal Ethnic and Religious Affairs Bureau told the news (www.thepaper.cn) that the core question of the Buddha statue is “whether it is open-air”. If the Buddha image is open-air, the relevant department may take measures to rectify it, such as removal.
“If it is not open-air, (we) do not have any policy and regulations to punish him.” Li said the person in charge.
The staff of the Policy and Regulations Department of the Jiangsu Provincial Ethnic and Religious Affairs Committee told the news that the basic principle of the state's abuse of large-scale open-air religious imagery is to adhere to the “one-size-fits-all policy” and will not remove it across the board. A batch has been dismantled in Jiangsu Province, and related remediation work may still be in progress and has not yet ended.
This “Pharmacist Buddha Statue” is located in the middle of Quanjian East China International Conference Center Hotel Building. Is it an open-air religious statue? There is currently no conclusion.
The person in charge of the surname Li said that the pure open-air Buddha is easy to understand, but the situation of the Buddha statue in the Quanjian company building is more complicated. “There are walls on the left and right, and there are buildings on the top, which is difficult to identify”. Therefore, it is difficult to do it at one time. To be defined, “the provincial (Jiangsu Provincial Ethnic and Religious Affairs Committee) may have been asking for the National Bureau (National Religious Affairs Bureau).
The “Regulations on the Implementation of Some Administrative Licensing Items for Religious Affairs” and the “Implementation Rules for Some Administrative Licensing Items in Religious Affairs” promulgated by the official website of the State Administration of Religious Affairs stipulate that large-scale open-air religious statues refer to the height of the image (including the pedestal) or the length of the individual. Open-air religious statues of more than 10 meters, or open-air religious statues with more than 10 groups of statues.
“Managing the large-scale open-air religious statues is the political task of implementing the central government's decision-making on religious work, and it is an urgent requirement to curb the hurricane of 'religious set-ups and economic singing'.” The official website of the Central United Front Department issued a message on May 25, 2018. It is said that “further investigation and illegal rectification of large-scale open-air religious statues in violation of regulations” is one of the main points of work of the State Bureau of Religious Affairs in 2018.
The person in charge of Li said that according to him, the Buddha statue was built in June 2016 and was completed in November of that year. At present, the state is advancing the management of large-scale open-air religious statues. In March 2018, the staff of the Yancheng Ethnic and Religious Affairs Bureau conducted a survey with the staff of the Religious Affairs Department of the Jiangsu Provincial Ethnic and Religious Affairs Commission on the statues of the giant statues of Quanjian Hotel. : The staff took pictures on the spot and asked the local government staff about the approval of the Buddha.
Which department of the Buddha was approved by the local government? Li’s person in charge said that he was not clear, and he had to verify with Dafeng District.
The person in charge of Li said that if it is not open-air, it does not require the approval of the religious affairs management department, but it requires the consent of the construction planning department.
The National Enterprise Credit Publicity System (Jiangsu) website shows that the registered investor of Jiangsu Dafeng Quanjian East China International Conference Center is the legal representative of Quanjian Group Co., Ltd. (referred to as “Qianjian Company”). Quanjian’s products such as 1068 yuan insoles and oral liquids, as well as suspected pyramid schemes and false advertisements have been questioned and investigated again.
