Scientologists spread their roots in India’s Capital

New Delhi, October 7: Scientologists are getting ready to spread their movement in India. A two-day exhibition aimed at recruiting volunteers was inaugurated by Delhi Assembly Speaker Prem Singh in the Capital yesterday. From Delhi, the exhibition will travel to Ahmedabad, Ambala and Patiala.

What makes Scientology a hate group

Among other unethical behavior, hate- and harassment activities are part and parcel of Scientology. Hatred is codified, promoted and encouraged in the cult‘s own scriptures, written by founder L. Ron Hubbard.

The movement has had its share of controversy. ‘‘It doesn’t matter… every subject gets negative press… even the government is subject to negative press. But that was in the past,’’ said Ged Yeardsley, who has brought the exhibition to India from UK.

The movement is in its infancy in India. There are 50 volunteers and 250 to 300 members in India. But Scientologists are pushing for an increase now. ‘‘We offer modern-day solution to people’s problems. The exhibition offers different solutions to problems,’’ he added.

Scientology, portrayed as a religious philosophy, was started by L. Ron Hubbard. Hollywood stars Tom Cruise and John Travolta are among its followers.

There are courses on disaster management, drug rehabilitation, education, marriage counselling and improving communication skills. Scientologists claim to help drug addicts and people with marital problems, and solve children’s academic problems, and stress-related issues.
