Violence is a chain. Violence brings destructive violence. This is violence that restores violence. Women in the MKO are the victims of violence from leadership and higher levels. They themselves have to use violence. This is the reason for many of mental illnesses in the Ashraf Camp
Results of a study showed more complexity about women’s situation in MKO, in comparison with men: “Due to specific problems and difficulties they may face in the future, women don’t dare to leave the group. Women have been convinced that they will be raped by U.S. soldiers as soon as leaving the group and that they would be tortured and executed in the case of returning to Iran. All in all, they have no hope for future. In the case of being released from the Ashraf prison it’s really difficult for them to marry and live in Iran and Europe, since they have no expertise to work for a living. Therefore, leaving the group is almost impossible for them.” This situation even applies for the girls of these women. Last month, Azar Ghorab, daughter of Masumeh Ehtesham, died in a hospital in Germany due to bone cancer, although she had waited a very long time to see her parents and brother. Nosrat Shams Haeri and several other girls have been refrained from meeting their mothers, located in another building near them. What’s more shocking is that the MKO expect women to have violent manly behaviors. That’s why some women in the MKO have resorted to violent activities, and unfortunately many of them have become part of suppression system in the cult (of Rajavi). Violence is a chain. Violence brings destructive violence. This is violence that restores violence. Women in the MKO are the victims of violence from leadership and higher levels. They themselves have to use violence. This is the reason for many of mental illnesses in the Ashraf Camp. A major part of the violence in MKO, especially in women’s realm, is performed under the name of “struggle needs”, and behavior of the group in this regard leads to deprivations which cause organizational violence. Most important example of such a cycle could be seen during past few months, when the MKO had forced women to stand against their families, ex-husbands and even their children who had come to meet them. When a person outside the MKO even speaks about a woman inside the organization, this kind of violence- which has deep roots in MKO’s internal relations- causes choking suppression for that woman. Another part of violence lies in the realm of physical violence and beatings. Many of women in MKO are the victim of harsh beatings and months of isolation, without having any help. Reports include several cases of this kind of violence, severest of which concerns two young militia girls who had been beaten severely due to having emotional relations.
