EP 14: THE CULT NEXT DOOR - SLAVERY, RAPE, BRAINWASHING, CHILD CRUELTY & TWO MEMBERS MEETING SUSPICIOUS DEATHS. ANALYSIS BY DR. JANE
For 30 years, residents in a variety of south London properties, although curious and suspicious about their odd and secretive neighbours had no idea they were living right next to a Maoist cult run with an iron fist by a self proclaimed Marxist revolutionary calling himself Comrade Bala. For decades Bala, the leader and only male in the cult was sexually and physically abusing the seven female members, seizing their wages, and making them cook and clean for him while bullying, threatening and preventing them from leaving with the use of mental and physical coercion, whist all the time subjecting them to his deranged and tyrannical teachings. The sect was so secret that nobody realised that the women, apparently free to come and go at will, were seemingly emotionally and mentally shackled in all that time to their brutal leader by invisible handcuffs.Two cult members would die in suspicious circumstances, one falling out of a window and breaking her neck on Christmas Eve whilst taking a bath. The other being hit in the head by a cupboard door.And Bala would father a daughter with a cult member, making his daughter's birth mother deny responsibility or any attachment with her baby. This child would spend nearly 30 years denied education, health care, company of other children or any freedom. It was only when she was gravely ill that another cult member would arrange for them both to be rescued, which in a heat stopping plan they were able to achieve.Download now to listen to the fascination story of the Brixton Cult and quite how the tyrannical Comrade in charge got away with what he did for so long.
