Family of Malaysian ‘enslaved’ by London cult hope for her return this Ramadan

Malaysian Insider/February1, 2016

Bernama -- The family of Siti Aishah Abdul Wahab, 72, the Malaysian-born woman believed to have been confined by a cult-like Maoist sect in London, are hoping for her to return and celebrate Ramadan and Hari Raya with them.

Her elder sister Kamar Mahtum Abdul Wahab, 76, said Aishah was living in London and doing a lot of charity work.

“We are always in touch with her (Aishah). She is happy there and we will not force her to return but maybe she can come and celebrate Ramadan and Hari Raya with us,” said Kamar who plans to go to London and convince her to return.

Kamar was commenting on news that the Southwark Crown London Court had yesterday found the head of the cult-like Maoist group, Aravindan Balakrishnan, 75, guilty for sexual assault and abusing women members of the group.

Siti Aishah, from Jelebu, Negeri Sembilan was one of three women believed to be have been held for more than three decades by a cult-like Maoist sect led by Aravindan and his partner Chanda Pattni, a Tanzanian national of Indian descent who were later arrested by police.

Siti Aishah went to Britain in 1968 to continue her studies but had later joined an activist group which held her captive alongside an Irish woman who has been identified as Josephine Herival by the UK press, and a younger woman known as Rosie Davies.
