limitations and pressures applied by the group on its members are so extensive that the members consider it as deception and sin to make contact with other Iranians
The meeting of Nejat Association was held in Tabriz on Thursday with the aim of illuminating the minds of families about the deploring situation of MKO members. A number of MKO members’ families took part in the meeting. Ibrahim Khodabandeh said in the meeting: “the realities inside the Iranian society are completely against what Mojahedin leaders define.” Referring to the efforts of this group to brainwash the members, he said that the returning of members is dependent to the families’ relations with their loved ones in MKO. He added: “unfortunately, due to high ideological and intellectual walls created by MKO leaders, members’ imagination of Iran is limited to “poverty, torture, misery, and bad socio-economical condition.” He pointed to the first impression he got from the way investigators treated him after his extradition to Iran and said that this kind of behavior played a significant role in erasing negative thoughts about torture and execution in Iran from his mind. Explaining the interaction between him and investigators, he said: “My previous thoughts- that I would be tortured and executed as soon as I enter Iran- were defeated by the way investigators treated me.” “Their behavior and good equipments in Evin prison made me encourage my daughter to return to Iran.” Khodabandeh said the social and political atmosphere of the country is in contradiction with what Mojahedin say. According to him, limitations and pressures applied by the group on its members are so extensive that the members consider it as deception and sin to make contact with other Iranians. He said it was a success for him to be arrested in Syrian and extradited to Iran which led to meeting his family and joining the society again. He expressed hope that the families of clutched members of MKO could make contact with their loved ones and pave the way for their returning to the country. Ibrahim Khodabandeh, born in 1953 in Tehran, got his high school degree from Alborz High School and got his MS in Electronic Engineering from a University in the UK.
