Please read these quotes taken from recent complaints to better understand our important mission:

"Please describe the cult activity: Human trafficking of children from state to state. Arranged marriage of minors to adults. Free child labor, slavery. Physical and mental abuse. The leader had sex with his step daughter and produced 4 children with her. Another leader has currently married more than 4 teen girls, 1 of which is 14 years of age...I was trafficked from state to state, I worked 17 hours a day for over 16 years and never received a payment for my work. I was beaten in their school. I was placed in a arranged marriage…”

“We always had to do what he wanted or we were sinning and not pleasing God. A few months ago we found out the Pastor was having sex in front of a 14 year boy while the boy played with himself. I have been told this is sexual child abuse…"

"I was a part of this church. My mother and her family attend this organization. They are definitely a cult. They are very good at hiding rape and pedophilia…"

You can help these suffering children trapped in cultic groups by supporting a case today. For as little as a $10, you can help rescue kids from exploitation and abuse, prevent suicide, shut down cult leaders, expose cults, help reunite separated families and much more.

UNIVERSAL CHILDREN’S DAY

TODAY IS UNIVERSAL CHILDREN’S DAY:

The United Nations Universal Children’s Day was established in 1954 and is celebrated on November 20th each year. This date is dedicated to raising awareness on issues affecting children, especially regarding their rights and well-being.

We at FACT are very proud to devote our mission and efforts to help rescue children from destructive groups to make them safe from cultic exploitation and abuse. The lives of thousands upon thousands of children around the U.S. and abroad are being destroyed through terrible physical, mental and sexual abuse, human trafficking, slave labor exploitation and more. As mothers and fathers ourselves, we love our children dearly and believe that every child deserves to have a normal, happy and healthy upbringing, and our goal at FACT is to help every child we can out of dangerous cultic situations and into loving, peaceful environments fostering their growth and development.

To all our supporters, we thank you for helping us with our mission to rescue and protect these suffering children. We cannot do it without you.

Sincerely,

Uma Inder Expose Follow-up

This comes as an important follow-up to our Uma Inder expose.

For the record, for all those who claim that FACT never responded to Uma’s lawyer, attached please find the prompt responses that we sent for each communication received from her lawyer Erwin Siregar.
We at FACT would like to see a truce and a fact-finding discussion between the alleged victims and Uma Inder. We would also recommend for Yoga Barn (who employed Uma Inder for years), to be involved in this process. We believe the alleged victims deserve at least this much from Uma and Yoga Barn in an effort to bring some closure to their lives and to help with their healing process.

THE UMA INDER EXPOSE – CONCLUSION - PART 3

In the final part of our expose conclusion, we would like to address a few important points and what we are requesting from Uma Inder:

First and foremost, we are expecting Ms. Inder to make a public apology to all the alleged victims who have come forward with their allegations and evidence, and to permanently change her teachings and practices that have damaged the lives of her alleged victims. We cannot remain silent knowing that people are being harmed by what we believe are Uma Inder’s destructive teachings, and we feel it is necessary for us to warn the public.

It is interesting to note how Uma’s supporters have gone silent during the conclusion of our expose. It is typical for cult defenders to be silenced once their leader is exposed, and we believe our expose has succeeded in bringing the truth to light.

In response to Uma’s claim that we took down our expose previously because of a cease and desist order from a Yoga Barn lawyer against us, she is grossly incorrect. We never received an actual court ordered cease and desist, it was merely an email threat from Yoga Barn’s lawyer, which did not influence our casework nor our expose. Moreover, this threat was merely to remove any mention of Yoga Barn from our expose, which we refused to abide by since there was no denying the connection between Uma Inder and Yoga Barn who employed her for many years and then terminated her, we believe due to the complaints filed against her from her alleged victims. Yoga Barn claimed no further involvement with Uma Inder after her termination, yet in February of 2017 we found a calendar advertisement online that mentioned Uma Inder teaching Ayurveda at Yoga Barn for 2017-2018. When we informed Yoga Barn’s lawyer about this, they blamed it on a “clerical error on the part of our webmaster” and removed Uma’s name from the calendar ad.

Lastly, in response to Uma’s claim of defamation, we believe that truth speaks for itself and is of course defendable. The fact that there are multiple complaints filed against her with corroborating allegations, not to mention the overwhelming amount of supporting evidence behind these allegations, made the truth evident in this case.

We are still waiting for Uma to come forward to openly and honestly discuss all the allegations against her, and not hide behind her defenders and lawyers. If she does, we will update our expose and posts accordingly.

This concludes our Uma Inder expose. The purpose of this expose is not to slander, libel or harm anyone in any way; it is to bring awareness, to educate the public and to potentially change Umaa’s allegedly damaging practices so that no one might be hurt in the future. We of course encourage all opposing views and welcome all new information / evidence at any time. If you have any information about Uma Inder that you would like to share, either positive or negative, please contact us at:

THE UMA INDER EXPOSE – CONCLUSION – PART 2

Please Note: The purpose of this expose is not to slander, libel or harm Uma Inder in any way; it is to bring awareness, to educate the public and to potentially change her allegedly damaging practices so that no one might be hurt in the future. We of course encourage all opposing views and welcome all new information / evidence at any time. If you have any information about Uma Inder that you would like to share, either positive or negative, please contact us at:

www.familiesagainstcultteachings.org/cult-help/contact.html

----------
According to the complaints and evidence received against Uma Inder from multiple parties, we believe Umaa may be acting as a cult leader that seems to severely damage her followers in many ways. In our opinion, Umaa Inder’s recruitment, indoctrination, and control techniques are typical to that of destructive high-control/demand groups (as per our analysis using the B.I.T.E. model). We believe her goal is to psychologically break down students in the name of “transparency” and “enlightenment” for control and exploitation purposes. According to the complaints, in our opinion it seems Umaa Inder has no regard for the physical, mental, emotional and financial well-being of her followers. In our estimation, we believe Umaa Inder may be very dangerous and advise potential students to think twice before becoming a student of this yogi guru.

We commend all of the brave ex-students for finding the courage to come together and speak out in an effort to warn potential students and stop the alleged manipulation and abuse, as stated in this quote from an alleged victim:

“…it is due to these systematic threats and intimidation that Uma Inder has been able to operate for so long without being exposed. These threats require that we protect our identities for the time being. However, we are so concerned about the well-being of current, inactive, former, and possible future cult members that we choose to begin exposing the abuses carried out by Uma Inder.”

In our opinion, Uma Inder’s teachings are not those of healing, peace or enlightenment since they have allegedly caused tremendous harm to some of her student followers (positive, healthy and harmonious teachings do not cause such a negative reaction).

Though Uma’s supporters have every right to try and defend her, we are asking Uma Inder to step out from behind them and from behind her lawyers, to speak for herself and discuss with us each and every allegation made against her, which we believe is the only way to achieve a resolution on this matter and start the healing / recovery process for the alleged victims.

Again, this expose was the result of allegations and evidence received against Uma Inder by ex-students. The purpose of this expose is to warn, educate, potentially save lives and to protect any potential victims. It is absolutely not intended to slander, libel or harm anyone mentioned in the expose.

Check back for Part 3 of our conclusion posting tomorrow…

THE UMA INDER EXPOSE – CONCLUSION - PART 1

As the first part of our Uma Inder expose conclusion, we post this statement written to Uma by her alleged victims:

"Uma, we implore you and your followers to deeply question if what you achieved is actually an enlightened state, or a protected, walled-off state of isolation where the basic laws of human decency and empathy no longer apply to you because you are above, beyond, under, and/or over them—and kicking, tackling, pulling hair, throwing people back by the neck, punching in the stomach, slapping, hitting with objects, name-calling, shaming, publicly humiliating, mocking suicidal cries for help, and sexually grinding against a student in an altered state are all seen as "blessings" and completely normalized because…because why, Uma? Because you are truly so "special"? Because you did it "all for love"? We want you to deeply consider and reconsider these actions and see the possibility that they are abuses of human decency and gross violations of the position of power you have put yourself in and demand from your followers...NOT blessings that are destroying a false sense of self (which you claim the authority and knowledge to be able to do). We pray you will see them as your own unowned shadow, begging to see the light.

You have said so many times that "everything has a place," and that the "whole picture" or "whole truth" must be seen by the myriad perspectives that see it. It is easy to find heavy praise about you on the internet. We have felt it incredibly important to also make available the shadow side. We note how hard you have tried to prevent our experience from being shared publicly.

We want your followers to consider this all very deeply. Please remember: we have written and audio evidence for all of these actions, as well as the testimony of far more people than you or your followers want to acknowledge. We are not making any of this up: it would be a horrendous waste of time and precious life energy for us to start a fictitious smear campaign. We do this out of sincere concern for your current and future followers, and desire to prevent harm.

Our genuine hope is that this public exposure of your behavior will inspire deep and searing self-reflection on your actions; on where you may be mistaken; on where you may have done wrong; on the ways you may be deluded--and that you will then profoundly and authentically apologize for the deceptions and abuses you have committed against so many people. We wish for these apologies to come with extensive and detailed specifics--not the evasive, grandiose generalities that are your norm.

Sadly, we recognize that you may not have the psychological capacity for this self-reflection, self-responsibility, or personal growth. We recall you saying in so many ways that you were 'beyond' personal growth. But if you integrate our reflections to you, it would indicate to us a possibility of you changing your ways, and therefore reduce the likelihood of future students of yours undergoing the deception, exploitation, and abuse at your hands that we experienced. Sadly, we expect you to continue your ways, and we consider you profoundly unfit to present yourself or act as a teacher in any capacity. We hope you will prove us wrong.

In the meantime we consider any future employer of yours duly warned and liable for enabling your access to students. Yoga Barn ignored red flags around you for years--we pray others do not do the same.”

For those of you that wish to comment on this post, please remember that we will not tolerate any personal attacks on either side. We will also not tolerate any accusations or revealing of any personal information about either the accusers or the followers / defenders of Uma Inder.

FACT will conclude the Uma Inder expose this Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Nov 9, 10th and 11th.

Dear F.A.C.T. Followers,

Just to inform you, this platform will be devoted to the Uma Inder expose for the time being.

We will not tolerate any personal attacks from either side. We will not tolerate any accusations or revealing of any personal information about either the accusers or the followers / defenders of Uma Inder. The expose is about Uma, who was a trusted teacher for many of her followers. Some of those followers woke up and decided that harm was done to their existence and daily life by Uma’s teachings. Some of her defenders are still defending Uma, which they have a right to do so. As such, we are interested to see how Uma would change her alleged misconduct as a teacher and we will address that in our conclusion. We will re-open our Facebook site to everyone, to those who alleged Uma abused them, and to those who feel they need to defend Uma’s practices.
No-one will be allowed to personally attack anyone. No attacking the victims who allege abuse and no attacking the defenders of Uma.

Additionally, Uma as a teacher, has the responsibility to ensure that her students are well, and to address any and all complaints. Her defenders should not be her mouthpiece. Uma Inder should speak for herself.

F.A.C.T. has more than enough evidence to defend the truth and to stand behind the victims. We are discussing the alleged improper teachings of Uma Inder and we will give a platform for Uma’s defenders to express their views. Uma Inder is a teacher and as such has high control and influence over her followers critical thinking. We do not wish to see any post by anyone up until our conclusion at the end of this week, at which time everyone will have a platform to speak up. No organization can be more unbiased and as fair as we are.

Best to you all,

The F.A.C.T. Team
Families Against Cult Teachings, Inc.

Saturday, November 4, 2017

To all those following and commenting on our Uma Inder expose...

To all those following and commenting on our Uma Inder expose, please be informed, our expose is solely about Inder’s teachings and practices. We will not tolerate any accusations or revealing any personal information about either the accusers or the followers / defenders of Uma Inder.

Any personally identifying accusations and/or posted material will be subject to privacy and will be taken down immediately. We will absolutely not allow people to use this platform for personal attacks. Our expose is not about the personal life of the victims nor the followers of Uma Inder. This is not a courtroom and this platform should not be used reveal such things. This is the reason why we never publish details regarding allegations containing such personal information.

In our opinion, the fact that Uma Inder managed through her teachings to make such a controversial division between people speaks for itself. Based upon this result, we believe she is not truly teaching about healing, peace, enlightenment, and harmony.
Regarding the repeated claims being made by Uma supporters that there are only two people who have complained to FACT, we have received more than just two complaints, including a complaint that Uma managed to bring an alleged victim to the brink of attempted suicide.

Moreover, all allegations from Uma Inder’s main defender Mateo Mateo (that we are an organization that lies) and from Uma’s lawyers will be addressed at the conclusion of our expose. For now, please know that FACT has received the highest rating possible from Guidestar (platinum level rating) for our transparency and honesty as an organization. Our organization is merely trying to save lives and make changes for the better.

Lastly, please know that the FACT Team is out on assignment Monday and Tuesday. As such, we request that no comments be made up until Wednesday so that we may be available to respond promptly.

Thank you,

The FACT Team

THE UMA INDER EXPOSE – PART 4: KNOWN AFFILIATIONS

According to the alleged victims and from our online research, Umaa Inder is known to teach around the world at festivals, events, yoga retreats and businesses. Here is a partial list of past and current affiliations:

● Yoga Barn - Ubud, Bali
There is no denying the connection between Yoga Barn and Uma Inder since they employed her for years, allowing her to teach classes regularly to Yoga Barn clients. According to alleged victims of Uma Inder, the owner of Yoga Barn, Meg Pappenheim, received many complaints about Umaa, and it seemed that Ms. Pappenheim had responded accordingly and properly, in our opinion, by firing Uma from Yoga Barn.

● Byron Spirit Festival - Mullumbimby, AU
From their website: “360 degrees of African horizon, the Masai, the wild beasts, the Great Rift Valley, a forest-edged home, all fostered in Umā Inder, a spirited quest for ultimate purpose. Mentored by a grandfather honored as a "Freedom Fighter Extraordinary" and cherished by a Hindu family of Indian descent who embraced life worth living, Umā acknowledges her early years in Kenya as a golden age of education in human-being.”

● Red Tent Yoga – Byron Bay, AU
From their website: “In this workshop Uma delivers an immersive introduction that develops within the participants a grounded, working knowledge of key philosophical and therapeutic fundamentals of Ayurvedic self-care principles and practices. The aim of this workshop is to define and contextualize essential teachings of this all-encompassing system in such a way that the attendants of this course may experience – within hours – the physical, mental, emotional and energetic nurturing effects of the greatest gift on earth – Nature’s infinite wisdom.”

Please note: these are merely affiliations and we are not making any statements other than the apparent connection between Uma Inder and these organizations / groups. However, we believe that it is important to inform the public about these affiliations since, in our opinion, we believe Uma Inder may potentially use these venues as a platform to recruit and indoctrinate vulnerable students.

THE UMA INDER EXPOSE – PART 3: ANALYSIS OF THE ALLEGATIONS

In our opinion, after our analysis of the complaints and evidence received utilizing cult expert Steven Hassan's B.I.T.E. model, we believe Uma Inder appears to be acting as a destructive cult leader. The B.I.T.E. model is comprised of four different categories of control:

I. Behavior Control

II. Information Control

III. Thought Control

IV. Emotional Control

This analysis model is based upon the work of Robert J. Lifton, Margaret Singer and other psychologists and cult experts, and is used by many professionals in the field to distinguish between destructive and benign cultic group characteristics.

According to this model of analysis, the documented allegations against Uma Inder appear to raise numerous red flags in all four categories across the board.

To see the full breakdown of our B.I.T.E. model analysis, please visit our website at: https://www.familiesagainstcultteachings.org/Cult-Education/Exposes/Umaa-Inder-Expose/

As an example, some relevant quotes from a complaint we received:

“At this point Uma Inder and the group dogma she has created implicitly and explicitly dictates:

• What to wear
• What to eat
• Who to have conversations with
• Acceptable topics of conversation
• Who to have sex with and when
• What music, movies and internet media are acceptable for consumption
• And work routines, largely in service of Uma Inder and her personal projects

As Umaa Inder represents no tradition, these relations are entirely dependent upon Uma Inder’s discretion and subject to change at any time, heightening the anxiety of the members and their dependence on Umaa Inder to make increasingly basic decisions.”

"...members were strongly discouraged from speaking of these experiences to others, and increasingly pushed to signing non-disclosure agreements and waivers to shield Uma Inder from personal liability as her abuses continued and expanded. In addition, Umaa Inder’s chief follower, “protector” (per Umaa Inder), and self-proclaimed bodyguard has made frequent death threats to those he or Umaa Inder deems could ‘harm’ Umaa, such as by speaking out against her abuses. For example, one escaping cult member was threatened with decapitation for studying with another spiritual teacher. Another escaping cult member was threatened with “danger” should he return to Bali, for calling the group a cult.”

"Umaa Inder threatened that those who broke off the ‘process’ halfway would suffer spiritual death (as a leaving cult member was choosing to be away from God), sexual dysfunction, emotional displacement, and an inability to find community. Umaa Inder has also implicitly threatened to publicize highly personal and painful confessional material that she extracted from her followers in the group internet message board should anyone speak out against her.”

THE UMA INDER EXPOSE – PART 2: Recruitment, Indoctrination and Practices

Please Note: The purpose of this expose is not to slander, libel or harm Uma Inder in any way; it is to bring awareness, to educate the public and to potentially change her allegedly damaging practices so that no one might be hurt in the future. We of course encourage all opposing views and welcome all new information / evidence at any time. We only wish that Uma Inder would speak with us directly instead of having us communicate with her lawyers.

-----

As per the documented allegations received, we believe Uma Inder may have abused her position of employment at Yoga Barn (one of the most famous Yoga studios in the world), and at other locations as well to manipulate and exploit vulnerable students.

An ex-student stated the following to give a brief overview of Umaa’s alleged methodology:

“Uma Inder first establishes herself as a spiritual authority through her purported mastery of Yoga, Ayurveda, and Tantra.” As per the allegations, “Through the Yoga Barn in Bali, Uma gave consultations, which give her insight into the psychological weaknesses of her ‘patients.’ Patients then become students at Uma’s yoga classes, and are simultaneously encouraged to and ‘warned’ about joining Uma’s ‘inner circle’ by long-term members. Members of this circle communicate on closed online forums—often eight or more hours a day—their inner thoughts, feelings, and ‘impurities’ to be ‘cleared’ or ‘emptied.’ Once in the group, as Uma said, ‘there is no separate world of thinking or feeling’ - everything was the property of the group, and hence, of Uma.”

Other alleged victims add to this summary the following allegations:

1) “As cult members become more deeply committed, she systematically increases the implicit and explicit requirements to ‘being with her’ to her direct benefit, including free labor, monthly dakshina, implicitly compulsory attendance of her classes at Yoga Barn, and hundreds of hours on her internet forum—all leading toward the possibility of “lockdown” in “inner sanctum.”

2) “Uma Inder systematically broke apart couples, calling relationships outside the cult “based on FalseID,” or other forms of untruth. The less-committed member of the couple would typically be driven out of the cult.”

3) “Uma Inder demands that students ‘quote the Source,’ referring to herself, yet rarely discusses the authorities she pulls from unless it justifies her position of authority. In our view she is wholesale plagiarizing the teachings of others for spiritual fraud and manipulation.”

4) “As followers became more embedded in the group, Umaa Inder’s supposedly finite “process” of 12 years became 24 years, then 48 years, and finally an eternity of “absolute love and devotion” to Umaa Inder. This systematic changing of her sales pitch is hidden from new recruits.”

5) “Uma Inder demands that her followers take “self responsibility” for all consequences in order to avoid personal responsibility or liability for her actions, even as she has admitted to manipulating followers’ minds.”

6) “Cult members are required to divulge every thought, including dreams. Failure to do so is punished. Thus exposed, cult members are more easily controlled.”

7) “Uma Inder demands that her followers sign a waiver and an NDA that fundamentally and extensively misrepresent her activities, for example, by claiming an association with the ‘kundalini awakening process,’ when she is actually practicing classic mind control.”

8) “Language is heavily loaded with insider phrases and terminology, and Uma Inder is a master of the thought-terminating cliché - key parts of mind control.”

9) “Umaa Inder limits the information cult members are exposed to, controlling their consumption of media and requiring that members spend virtually all their free time on her internet forum.”

10) “Private conversations are not allowed. To do so is called “sidelining”, and discovery of private conversations is also met with punishment. Even eye contact with members or non-members outside of the presence of Umaa is also shamed as ‘sidelining,’ and ‘playing with Umaa’s fire.’”

11) “Uma Inder encourages cult members to verbally and sometimes physically abuse each other in the name of spiritual practice, calling it ‘transparency,’ ‘dissection,’ or ‘breaking it all down.’ The goal and result is classic cult mind control—breaking down the psyches of her followers with various forms of abuse, generating a sense of self-loathing in followers before creating traumatic attachments to Uma Inder, the group and its teachings.”

12) “Followers were instructed to “serve their [ego] deaths by serving Uma Inder,” and “die into truth,” through service to Umaa. The reward, which Uma Inder kept continually just beyond reach (because she can’t actually offer it), would be acceptance as a disciple, mastery over the kundalini, union with the forces of nature, and implied enlightenment.”

To read more, please visit our website to read our expose:

https://www.familiesagainstcultteachings.org/Cult-Education/Exposes/Umaa-Inder-Expose/

According to these statements, in our opinion, it appears that by slowly bringing vulnerable students into her group in a way that gradually increases the thought reform, commitment, responsibilities and demands placed upon followers, we believe Umaa Inder may be able to eventually transform students into devoted followers. Her methodical indoctrination process seems to incorporate many classic cult thought reform techniques according to the B.I.T.E. model, including ‘group think’, ‘thought stopping’, deception, psychological and identity breakdown, phobia indoctrination and more.
