A controversial religious leader will speak at Zellerbach Hall tonight, despite objections from former followers who claim he leads a cult.

Former members allege Prem Rawat, head of Elan Vital, Inc., hides a checkered past and is using the event to recruit new members.

"He's coming to Berkeley doing an introductory program, which means he's trying to recruit more people," said former follower Joe Whalen, who lives in San Francisco.
