An individual, with no prior experience of the BKs, who might be doing some research on them before going to one of their courses.

Might be a good idea to merge the threads. When i have time i will try and look for some 'quality' articles about the BKs (for and against) as when i read through the current list of articles in that section it makes me feel like i did when i watched elements of the Just a Minute programme at Wembly...

To listen to the show I had to pay a yearly subscription of $55. It's a US radio station that is also streamed on the internet, with the shows also being available for download (without the adds) so the $55 is for the bandwidth.

I agree Mr Green, controversy does need to be reported - my point is that it has been reported in that section in such a sensationalistic, unbalanced and poorly evidenced manner that it almost appears to be a satire created by the BKs themselves in order to discredit the efforts of this site in repo...

I agree feelings are valid. What I am saying is that to a neutral observer, i would imagine that a lot of the posts here would appear to come from a bitter place, i.e. a lot of the comments seem to be barbed and thus the validity and reliability of the comments is reduced. I have asked myself, "why ...

Is this supposed to be a joke?

i've just seen this section of the site; http://www.brahmakumaris.info/articleindex.html OMG it reads like something out of the Daily Mail. For readers who don't live in the UK, the Daily Mail is a scaremongering, right wing, xenophobic newspaper. It often has headlines along the lines of 'whatever ...

Where are these evidenced reports?

It just states following recent reports - what reports, and by who?

All i can see is a tiny picture of an Indian male in white clothes (non standard bk clothes) kicking someone.

i would say that a high proportion of the posts on this site express a bitterness towards the BKs and that the reason for this is that the most regular posters seem to have had a bad experience with the BKs that resulted in them leaving. Hence i often leave this site feeling its a bit one dimensiona...

hi arjun, it sounds like this is only ever going to be hearsay which if it is true must be very frustrating for you. The only way i can think of neutral people accepting your claims would be to get some kind of video or photographic evidence of these physical assaults - but even then that is open to...

Is this violence reported in the media? Could it be scanned or a webpage given or is it just hearsay?
