“Doomsday” sect members undergoing psychological treatment

Bandung – Some 164 members of the Christian “Doomsday” sect led by Rev. Mangapin Sibuea are undergoing psychological teraphy at a mental institute here, a Christian social worker said.

“Some of them are still suffering from deep depression because their belief that doomsday would occur on November 10 was disproved,” said Theo Cristy, secretary of the West Java chapter of the Indonesian Christian Communication Forum said here Monday.

The 164 were part of the 282 sect members whom police evacuated from the Pondok Nabi building in Baleendah here on November 10 when they were waiting for the coming of doomsday, Theo said.
