In and out of Iran, the MKO is known as a religious sect that has ordered its members not to marry in their lives. Isn’t this clearly depriving human beings from their basic rights? So, how this organization claims to be struggling to establish democracy in Iran while it ignores democratic rights of its own members? This sectarian factor sheds doubt on the claims of this group.
Dear Mr. Tunne Kelam, MEP from Estonia According to Mojahed Journal No. 775 (Nov. 18, 2005), in “Iran’s Nuclear Case Referral to UN Security Council” seminar in European Parliament, you had said that “National Council of Resistance is the best alternative” and that their demonstration, in which you had participated, was very illuminative for you!! We inform you that Demonstrations under the name of NCRI are in fact organized by the terrorist group of the MKO (Mojahedin-e Khalq organization), which has no popular support for its cooperation with Saddam Hussein and enjoying his financial, logistical and intelligence assistance. You can verify the accuracy of this by referring to diplomatic and independent sources. Isn’t it better for you to support the whole opposition instead of concentrating your support on the MKO, which believes in violent activities? We believe that supporting the MKO would cause irreparable damage to your political fame. In and out of Iran, the MKO is known as a religious sect that has ordered its members not to marry in their lives. Isn’t this clearly depriving human beings from their basic rights? So, how this organization claims to be struggling to establish democracy in Iran while it ignores democratic rights of its own members? This sectarian factor sheds doubt on the claims of this group. In June 2003, Maryam Rajavi, who was hiding in Paris, was arrested by the order of French Interior Minister. She ordered her members to set themselves on fire [to force the government to free her]. More than 10 people set themselves on fire. Aren’t these brutal acts, which remind of Middle Ages, signs of a religious sect that resorts to political pressure in the soil of Europe? We believe that your support for the NCRI and participating in its demonstration show that you have not enough information on the Iranian opposition. Awaa Club, formed by former member of the MKO, based in Germany, can give you more information about the past of this organization and its future plans.
