The BKWSU has always encouraged children to become members. The main child recruits are the children of new or existing members as it makes it easier for their parents to belong if the children do too. The children are indoctrinated along side their parents. The overwhelming problem is that when these children reach adulthood they have no grasp on reality – they see the world as they have been taught to by the BKWSU, complete with fear of a violent end of the world. There have been some horrendous outcomes as a result.
This has not stopped the BKWSU from actively engaging in the recruitment of children. This evidenced by following the links from the BKWSU website for the Global Retreat Centre in Oxford:
It is difficult to point the finger at Marneta as the main facilitator of this program to ensnare 5 to 12 year olds – she is a victim herself, having been indoctrinated as a child. The BKWSU is wholly responsible for this. We can be sure that neither Robert Holden nor Rebecca Abrahms have any idea about the relationship between Marneta, Relax Kids, and the BKWSU, however it does highlight how good the BKWSU is at getting at people in order to cast their nets further, and how dumb these people are.
The Brahma Kumaris also operate a “Youth Wing” – known in the west as the International Youth Forum. This is presented as an exercise in youth work – inspiring creativity, spirituality, “morality and values”.
On their website they list the programs that they have been involved in. As you can see they have been busy. Typically, they piggy back another organisations program and then ‘big speak’ what they have done – more PR.
On the surface it seems so moral and uplifting. However, at the end of the day the real intention is create more members anyway they can. It also has to do with keeping those youth who are already indoctrinated busy within the framework of “the cause”.
Whilst people like Marneta are no doubt sincere, as are many others, the problem remains the same – there is no duty of care, no responsibility for outcomes, and no disclosure of any kind. The core beliefs of the Brahma Kumaris remain hidden from view as do their real intentions.
