In November 1978, 22 years after its formation, 912 people died as a result of mass suicide, initiated by Jim Jones himself. A poisonous punch made from grape juice and lethal doses of vallium were offered to men, women, children and babies, from which, the People’s Temple worshippers died soon after, knowingly but under duress. Of course the incident was an international outrage and the relatives of those who consumed the poisonous punch as well as the American society as a whole were disgusted, disappointed and saddened.
