5. Workers' Institute of Marxism–Leninism–Mao Zedong Thought
Workers' Institute of Marxism–Leninism–Mao Zedong Thought is a Maoist cult formed in the seventies and lead by Aravindan Balakrishnan.
Balakrishnan was said to have used rape and violence as well as mental abuse to control his female victims. By the time he was finished with them, they believed that he was a God.
He claimed that he could control the powers of nature and the elements, that he could cause natural disasters and dissemble governments. “I am nature and nature is me” he told his followers.
He began to “purify” the women, to “Clean” them of their previous lives and strip them of their identity and dignity, along with the help of his mind reading mystical assistant who he referred to as “Jackie”.
