in MKO, there’s no individual independence because the organization is not based on democracy. That kind of democracy the organization is claiming, is never applied in the organization itself and %98 of members are affected, not influential; because the ideas of the members are not considered as valuable. The organization is based on the principle of “ideological leadership” and others are “sheep” which should listen to the leader; there’s no elections in MKO. The leader is lifelong, it’s even worse than monarchy and no one can question. If someone questions leader, he/she would be protested to and would be accused of “betrayal”.
In the anniversary of arresting Maryam Rajavi and self-immolations in Paris, Mojahedin-e Khalq held a ceremony in Paris on Saturday. At the same time, former members held a one-day meeting in Paris “Discussing Human Rights Violations in MKO”. In the meeting, past methods of Mojahedin-e khalq were criticized and discussed by former members. They discussed the process of getting into the organization and then leaving it. Massoud Tayebi says: “We entered the organization for justice, freedom and individual rights, for independence and freedom-seeking. But we didn’t stay in the organization since we didn’t find our ideals and desires in the organization, since the leadership and individual dictatorship was being applied in the MKO under the name of leadership. Ideology limited members, and more importantly, its worst kind was being performed in the organization. Individual independence is another issue; the two sides accuse each other of lacking it. In this regard, Hadi Shams Haeri: “in MKO, there’s no individual independence because the organization is not based on democracy. That kind of democracy the organization is claiming, is never applied in the organization itself and %98 of members are affected, not influential; because the ideas of the members are not considered as valuable. The organization is based on the principle of “ideological leadership” and others are “sheep” which should listen to the leader; there’s no elections in MKO. The leader is lifelong, it’s even worse than monarchy and no one can question. If someone questions leader, he/she would be protested to and would be accused of “betrayal”. Mojahedin-e khalq organization has protested severely to the report of Human Rights Watch. Ali Akbar Rastgou, former foreign affairs chief of MKO, says: “foreign relations of any organization is a reflection of its internal relations. It’s a long time that defectors are accusing Mojahedin-e Khalq of violating human rights in its internal relations. However, this time an external organization has come to investigate this case. This has had an effect on MKO’s foreign relations. Until now, the organization has tried to cover its internal relations by chantage and deception. I mean the organization has always hidden the fact but now those whom we contact (including members of parliamentarians and foreign representatives), they say they have nothing to do with MKO.”
