Very good suggestions to heal about meditation and mindfulness. It's the starting point.

You know what, Lina? I found out that the Muslim men who have received a very strong Islamic formation tend to handle very well cult leaders techniques. In some areas of Pakistan, and even in the city, the Islamic education is instill from very early years on a very stringent, dogmatic and narrow way. They admire the taliban strength and believe me that they do know what buttons to push to make their victims running around them like headless chickens as you so well say. They really use brainwashing strategies, term which we usually hear it in here very lightly but believe me that is a very scary arena to deep into. If I told you the things I have realised, found out and studied... nightmares at the very least.

Many of the rituals of their worship are equal to cult leaders tactics to numb their victims' mind. The constantly chanting of unknown words, the regularity with the prayers, the nighttime prayers to deprive you of decent sleep, the strict diet, the isolation from your family and support system... You end up believing whatever they want. DANGEROUS. They're very dangerous.

I truly hope this girl fins profesional support because it's not easy to get out without help most of the times. Take care N&S. I don't know if you read my past posts directed to you. I hope you can take something from them to help you out. Take care, please.
