Moscow - A reclusive sect that literally went underground to stop contact with the outside world kept 27 children in dark and unheated cells, many of them for more than a decade, prosecutors said Wednesday. The children have been freed and the parents charged with child abuse.
Some of the children, aged between 1 and 17, have never seen daylight, health officials said. The sects 83-year-old founder Faizrakhman Satarov, who declared himself a Muslim prophet in contradiction with the principles of Islam, has also been charged with negligence, Irina Petrova, deputy prosecutor in the provincial capital of Kazan, said. No members of the sect, who call themselves muammin or believers, have been arrested, she said.
The children were discovered last week when police searched the sect grounds as part of a probe into the recent killing of a top Tatarstan Muslim cleric.
Satarov declared his house outside Kazan an independent Islamic state. He ordered some 70 followers to live in cells they dug under the three-storey building topped by a small minaret with a tin crescent moon. Only a few sect members were allowed to leave the premises to work as traders at a local market, Russian media reported.

The reason these kids were down there is probably because they were sex slaves.
There is no punishment enough for these bastards in our physical, mortal world...
This prophet must not of publicized his appearance on the world stage otherwise he would have been separated from his head long ago.
The world is such a sad place and there are so many suffering so much. The millions of orphans in Africa, the tortured and starving in North Korea, hidden abuses EVERYWHERE, like with these kids in Russia, forced abortions/sterilizations in China, and on and on and on..
Yes and “hope ‘n change” won’t work. Taking right action will. This is where conservatives come into the picture.
>> AP: “in contradiction with the principles of Islam”
Nary an allowance when it concerns the good guys.
Even most muslims would say this guy was wacked out..
However even being a muslim is wacked out..
Proof: MoMo said if a muslim changes his religion... KILL HIM!..
Muslims also don’t kill muslims unless they are the wrong muslims..
Must be there are different kinds of being wacked out..
I suspect not all muslims are muslims as all christians are not christians..
Evil dead eyes. An adherent/willing servant of Azaezel, as is most of islam IMHO.
