I am Ahmad Saboohi, from the city of Iranshahr.
I was working in Dubai when a friend of mine called and asked me to go with him to Europe. We were in contact with the contacts of the MKO. Then they took us to Iraq and said that we would stay in Iraq for 6 months and after that they would send us to Europe.
In the MKO, we found that they had lied. They forced us to wear military uniforms. Their behavior changed. We had no way back. We should cope with them… then the US invaded Iraq.
After the fall of Iraqi regime, the condition became more open. At the time of Saddam, we couldn’t talk of leaving the organization. Whenever we talked about leaving the organization they said that they would keep us for 2 years and then they would give us to Iraqi government which would hold us for 8 years.
We saw that we would have to spend 10 years of our lives in the prisons, so we accepted to stay with them. But we always thought of living. In the meetings called “Current Operation”, they (Mojahedin) insulted us. We had to accept the situation. Anyone who opposed them, was taken to an unknown place, beaten up severely. They tortured the person so that he always returned to his first place. They insulted us with the words we had never heard in Iran. They treated us very badly. If they were honest, they wouldn’t be in such a situation now. Their organization is based on lying and deception. They talked of Imam Hussein and Imam Ali, but Imam Hussein and Imam Ali never did what they’re doing. Imam Hussein never forced his forces to divorce his wife and leave his family.
Nothing’s left from us. MKO destroyed our everything. This was not the way it must have gone. Bottom of the line, we have a lot to say.
