This letter is to demand that your and the Shri Ram Chandra Mission continuing involvement in, planning and encouragement of, recruitment of, information gathering, harassment and intimidation through “intellectual terrorism” with, but not limited to, such statements to create a false sense of urgency to join or enroll in your cult, by stating or implying impending “apocalyptic catastrophies”, through apocalyptic prophesies and/or “channelled messages from the deceased”, or hate mongering such as “homosexuality is un-natural…it is a very blatant misuse of so-called privileges of the human being fundamental rights” must CEASE AND DESIST immediately. Recruitment of my family, or their friends’ children for enrollment into your Religious Boarding School, the Lalaji Memorial OMEGA School, (or any other religious boarding school) managed and operated by the Shri Ram Chandra Mission created entity, the Baal Vatika Educational Society and the Baal Vatika Educational Foundation, the Chariji Education Development Society (CEDS), the Lalaji Memorial Educational Society, is also included in this CEASE AND DESIST ORDER.
