Sky Banner

Malaysian police on Malacca in January raided the home of the leader of Sky Banner, a 30- to 40-member Muslim sect, and found a stockpile of weaponry, including swords, as well as gunpowder and camouflage clothing, all collected so the group would be prepared for last December’s Mayan Apocalypse. “It was a survivalist thing,” said the Chief of Police. “I think the weapons were for protection or hunting.” (Time, 1/14/13) [IT 4.2 2013]
