MKO says that the family is the only thing which cuts MKO from struggle
* Please introduce yourself and talk in brief about your cooperation with the MKO. I'm Jalal Golmoradi. I was captured by Mojahedin-e khalq in the operation "Chelcheraq" on June 19, 1988. I was in the camp for a month. Then they said that anyone taking part in the operation would be freed. Since I had no assessment of the war and of the time it may finish, it took part in their operations. I was wounded and I took under medical cares for 18 months. In 1991-1992, I entered a series of meetings called "revolutionary meetings". The topic of such meetings was to divorce wives. This process continued until 2003. They said that Iran prosecutes all those who return to the country. So, I didn't have any motivations to return home until the families came to visit members. The first time, my family asked me to return but I refused. The second time, I refused again until they held meetings and said something about family that I couldn't accept. Then, why did it take a long time for you to leave the organization? Because in 2004 whole NLA and MKO members had pledged to stay in the organization until June 20, 2005 and they said that everyone who leaves would be considered as traitor. The only thing I thought was that I didn't want to be called a traitor, so I decided to wait until 20th of June. On 21st, I wrote a request and gave it to the officials. The next day, they took me to Exit section and then to US camp. On the 6th day, I was taken out of Baghdad by the airplane of Red Cross. The plane landed in Mehrabad airport in the afternoon. Tell us about the effects of meeting with families. In short words, they don't let anything separate members from struggle. They don't let anything influence the MKO. They said: "Family bombards the MKO", they meant that family is the only thing which cuts MKO from struggle. There's no doubt that it has effects, even if one doesn't separate from the group. Were there other ones who want to return? People there keep their thoughts hidden. Many of them want to return but they don't express it.
