"Ikiwa tunatumia neno madhehebu au ibada, madhehebu ni vigumu kufafanua. Lakini kwa udhibiti wake usio na maana juu ya wanadamu, kuzungumzia madhehebu ni kurejelea jumuiya ya wanadamu ambayo washiriki wake wanafuata kwa uthabiti mafundisho yale yale ya kifalsafa, kidini au kisiasa, kwa kushindana na makundi mengine. Ikiwa tunarejelea ufafanuzi katika kamusi ya Larousse, ni kundi la watu wanaokiri fundisho sawa (falsafa, kidini, n.k.) kwa mfano: madhehebu ya Epicurus. Neno "madhehebu" linajumuisha muungano wa wanafalsafa sawa na dini yoyote. "Ukristo ni madhehebu yenye mafanikio", kulingana na Ernest Renan, mwanahistoria na mwanafalsafa Mfaransa ambaye alikuwa na jukumu kubwa katika kuzaliwa kwa "sayansi ya dini" katika karne ya 19. Kwa kweli, je, Ukristo haukutokana na madhehebu ya dini ya Kiyahudi? Kwa kweli, hakuna ufafanuzi wa "dhehebu" katika sheria yetu. Kwa hiyo inafaa kutumia dhana ya "mifarakano ya madhehebu".

The above paragraph, – writes Belgian writer André Lacroix,  is from the Introduction of the new book “Sects – Twisted Beliefs” by the independent writer Albert Jacques. As a retired independent journalist/writer, Mr Jacques is dedicating part of his time to investigating and exposing fake beliefs and harmful cults. It is only through careful observation, analysis and proper legal actions that we, as a society, can hope to defeat those atrocious organizations.

So why would he write a book about a cult? His personal experience may give some answers: “First of all, it turned out that a member of my family became a follower of a cult and that from that moment, his behaviour changed. The most astonishing thing for me was his attitude towards his parents and his brother. He tried to enlist his brother to join the sect. Following her brother’s refusal, he became a stranger in her eyes. Since then when he says my brother, it is a member of the sect he is talking about. Finally, he disowned his parents, the sect becoming his only family. Some astonishing news stories where sects were involved caught my attention. A trip to the United States definitely pushed me to get involved by first doing a report, then a book. In Phoenix, I travelled a good kilometre where the churches followed one another on both sides of the road. In fact these were places of worship belonging to different sects, a term ignored in the United States. While here we are wary of these sects, some of which are even banned, in the United States no problem, they are well established.So when I embarked on writing this book, I knew that I was heading down a rocky path.The sects do not like people to take too close an interest in their prebends and will stop at nothing to keep them.”

“Tofauti na wengi, Bw Jacques hakuogopa kueleza kwa ukali matokeo yake kuhusu kisingizio cha uhuru wa imani kuficha tabia mbaya. Katika jamii ambamo tunahubiri uhuru wa kuamini, mara nyingi tunashindwa kutambua jinsi uhuru huo unavyoficha ukweli mbaya wa unyanyasaji.” Profesa Hassan, mtaalam maarufu duniani wa kupinga ibada, anaandika katika Dibaji ya kitabu hiki. Yeye ndiye mwanzilishi na mkurugenzi wa Kituo cha Rasilimali ya Uhuru wa Akili, ambayo husaidia watu kuepuka udhibiti wa akili wa ibada.

How to write this book, the writer says:“All my information comes from many apostates who want to talk about the pressures they face in leaving the sect and from the testimonies and statements of influential people in ecclesiastical circles or other religions. Important figures from different religions do not recognise these sects as schisms but as movements outside the religion. I suffered denigration and pressure from people whose primary activity is to defend sects against all odds. On this theme, they oppose the Belgian and German authorities on the subject of Jehovah’s Witnesses, the South Korean government, the Taiwan authorities and more recently the authorities Japanese since the assassination of former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. They regularly and virulently attack organizations like MIVILUDE or FECRIS. These organizations monitor sects, ensuring that they do not cross the red line, and come to the aid of victims and parents of victims of these sects.”

Mr André Lacroix, mwandishi huru wa Ubelgiji, alitoa maoni yafuatayo baada ya kusoma kitabu hiki: “Excellent study which clearly reflects the global dimension of sectarian movements, their number as well as their ideological and political convergences. It’s very clear and easy to read.”

Kitabu hiki kinatanguliza kikamilifu shughuli, muundo wa shirika na mbinu za kudhibiti waumini wa baadhi ya madhehebu yanayojulikana sana duniani. Kuhusu uharibifu wa akili na udhibiti wa madhehebu, Bw. André Lacroix:"Waenezaji propaganda wa madhehebu ni wajanja sana; wanajua jinsi ya kunufaika na upotevu wa marejeleo ya kiroho miongoni mwa watu wengi wa siku zetu pamoja na ujinga wao wa kihistoria na kisiasa ili kusambaza ujumbe wao na kukusanya rasilimali za kutosha za kifedha ili kuongeza hadhira yao. Uwezo wao wa kujionyesha kama watetezi wa uhuru wa kidini ni hatari sana kwa sababu kuna uwezekano wa kuvutia huruma. ”

Talking about how to reduce or prevent the temptation and persecution of ordinary people by cults? Both independent writers gave their own advice, with Albert Jacques saying: ” The latest MIVILUDE report demonstrates a resurgence of sectarian abuses in France, which is why, in France, the National Assembly took its responsibilities and adopted the bill aimed at strengthening the fight against sectarian abuses and improving support for victims. The European Parliament should take inspiration from the actions of their French colleagues and act at the European level because the actions of these sects have no borders. European populations must be protected, especially since behind these occult facades of sects, some hide child criminal activities. And I will end with a warning to the European authorities because these sects organize intense lobbying with members of the European Parliament and institutions. They already have one foot in the house.”

Mapendekezo ya André Lacroix ni: “ First means of combating sects: information. As such, I find it regrettable, in Belgium, the lack of resources allocated to the CIAOSN (Center for Information and Advice on Harmful Sectarian Organizations), a lack denounced by this Center in its 2017-2023 activity report. Everyone in Belgium knows the OCAM, the Coordination Body for Threat Analysis, but who knows the CIAOSN? Wouldn’t sects present a serious threat? It would undoubtedly be worth seeking an audience with party presidents to draw their attention to the danger of sects; also request an audience with the Ministers of Education to see if it would be possible to organize information sessions in schools. ”

Mwishowe, maelezo ya Profesa Hassan ni muhimu sana: “Ni kwa heshima nimenukuliwa, kujadiliwa na kufafanuliwa katika kitabu hiki, nikuombe tu wewe msomaji, uwachunge wale unaowathamini wasiingie kwenye ghilba hizi. ”
