I just found out that they never told the original Westerners coming into Gyan about the failure of the 1976 Destruction prediction either. Even though the first Double Foreigners had just, or were just coming into Gyan. I am starting to wonder whether the push into the West was to escape the mess they had made in India in 1976 when a whole load of BKs left and, my guess, service would have been hard and slow.
In the News and Articles
section, it documents "Baba" speaking as BapDada, that is to say Supreme Soul "God" and a perfected "Adam" or "Brahma", clearly predicting 1975 or 1976 as the date for Destruction. They, the BKWSU chose to cover this up. Indeed, in the early days, because the Murlis went sent out in Hindi, it was up to the sisters-in-charge to translate them as they wanted, on the hoof as it were.
- Imagine, the entire expansion into the West was based on a series of lies.
Frankly, that certainly defines these peoples' capabilities for me ... and their conception "God". And nothing has changed that much except the quality of their PR.
- But, I bet you, even the people doing that PR probably don't know about all this stuff. Or else, how could they do so?
a) it would require them to be dishonest, and I honestly believe the majority of BKs are well meaning if habitually deluded by their leaders.
b) it would be the stupidest PR honcho in the World that did not confess up to such mistakes and address them publicly to avoid the inevitable bad PR that would obviously ensue at a later date. Frankly, I'd say it was enough to sue them for deception, gain wealth on false pretenses.
It is said that whilst Brahma was alive, he had to be stopped writing a letter to Indian Government promising to give away all of his money to them if the World did not end then. In my opinion, this is where the unseen, shady element seems to have taken control. There is no doubt Lekhraj was a sweetheart and great medium BUT
the guy was outrightly bananas, and certainly even in my time, individuals were encouraged to go bananas on joining. Writing letters to the King of England, sending heavily ornate gifts with the knowledge written on it and the organization boasting about it as if it was a big thing to establish credibility ... just like they do now with the UN relationship. What is there al value of that? They would have gone straight in the file marked "Dangerous Whacko".
Apparently, and this needs confirmed although you will never get the organization to do so itself, this is when the legal trust side was established by brothers. This is also part of the bullsh** about "women being up front" PR. If you look at the legal reality of it, the legal structures, trustees etc. are all bound up with brothers and the Senior Sisters default to them - especially when the dirty work has to be done.

[N.B. I know the PBK understanding of Destruction and I am not dismissing it. This post is written purely within the given BK model to expose the BKWSU for what they are
