Once, my brother called me and asked me to leave Iran and join him in the organization. It was seven or eight years ago. He didn’t talk to his mother and father. He is the eldest son and my parents are hunger to see him, to hear his voice. Now, he has called to threaten my old mother. Why a veteran member like him shouldn’t be allowed to call his parents freely?
In the name of God, The MKO leaders talk of democracy and freedom but they don’t allow their members to have event phone calls! In the end, all movements (even the extremist ones) allow their members to have emotional contacts with their parents and relatives, but MKO members are not allowed to do so. What democracy is it that any criticism leads to imprisonment of the person? What democracy is it that most members would leave and return to the country or go to Europe if the doors of organizational prison are open? They always act against their slogans. They talk of Imam Hussein, for instance. We know that during the incidents in Karbala (in which Imam Hussein was martyred), Imam said that everyone was free to leave or stay. Have they told anyone he is free to leave? Where in the organization has this happened ever? Once, my brother called me and asked me to leave Iran and join him in the organization. It was seven or eight years ago. He didn’t talk to his mother and father. He is the eldest son and my parents are hunger to see him, to hear his voice. Now, he has called to threaten my old mother. Why a veteran member like him shouldn’t be allowed to call his parents freely? This is another example, which proves how hollow their slogans are. Anther point is that they fear from reflecting the social realities. If you believe your slogans are true, and if you are faithful to what you say, why don’t you let your members hear and see to choose the best way themselves? Let them come and see the social situation. Let them see your popular base. Come and see if you have popular support, then go and shout the slogans of the “Khalq” (masses). Come and see if your slogans have any influence on people. You have created a wall between yourself and people. You’ve separated from people but you shout the slogans related to people. What people? The people you accuse of spying and assassinate. I want to address the MKO leaders: you that claim of masses (khalq), you should all your members and supporters see the realities of the world. Let them see the world outside your structures. I thank god I didn’t join them because the first consequence of that is the destruction of life. Where in world one should divorce his wife if he wants to fight against a regime? Hear my voice. There are orphans in your organization. The issues around each and every member of your organization in Europe and the West have created sordid situation. If you really claim that your members and supporters devote themselves to you, let them see the realities. Then, you’ll see what remains for you. Then, you can claim that you are supporter of masses. For the time being, you have made a wall and there’s only a TV and a number of publications, all of your own. You have cut their contact with the world. You dictate them and they obey like robots. Let them see and decide themselves. I advise the members to come and see. If someone decides to leave the organization, he has bought the death. I’m here now and if I want to go there, my family life will be the first victim. I told my brother that wife and kids are also from khalq (masses). “Why should I victimize my wife and my innocent child? For who? For what goal?” I asked. All people who want to review these issues should look at the family, emotions and … to see whether any attention is paid to these affairs.
