Police official removed from office for 'Peace Mantra' book
He Dian, a Party official and deputy director-general of Department of Public Security of Jilin Province, has been removed from the office, the province’s Party Committee announced on Friday after investigating his controversial publication.
He’s book entitled “Ping’an Jing,” (Peace Mantra), made up of blessings of peace and wellness for various aspects of life, has caused an outcry over why such simple content had made it into print and why it had been lavishly praised by local media and government bodies.
The book was being sold on JD.com for 299 yuan (US$43). Its cover says it was published by the People’s Publishing House and Qunzhong Publishing House. It was removed from e-commerce platforms after objections to it went viral.
