China detains 101 people for professing doomsday Last Updated : 18 Dec 2012 10:20:50 AM IST China detains 101 people for professing doomsday
Chinese police have detained 101 people for spreading doomsday rumours.The detentions come ahead of Friday, December 21 a date some say the Mayans prophesied would be the end of the world and which was the subject of the apocalyptic movie "2012."
Police detained four Chinese doom-mongers in Chongqing for preaching people through a loudspeaker about the world's impending end .
Police also confiscated leaflets, DVDs and other apocalyptic propaganda in the recent arrests in eight provinces across the country.
Nearly half those detained are reported to be members of the group Almighty God, which is also called Eastern Lightning. The group is regarded as a heretical Christian sect.
It preaches that Jesus has reappeared as a woman in central China and has been accused of kidnapping and beating Christians to force conversions.
According to local public security departments, detentions were also made in east China's Fujian province, southwest China's Chongqing municipality and Sichuan province, northwest China's Shaanxi province and central China's Hubei province
Actually according to interpretations of an ancient Maya calendar that are rejected by mainstream science, the world is set to end on Dec 21, 2012.Source:PTI, Other Agencies, Staff Reporters
