Who's responsible for years of terror and blood shedding in Iran and what's the role of Mojahedin in this regard? The Awa Club believes that the MKO is lying as before and there have been no changes in the ideas of this group due to its old cultist structure
The MKO has released an announcement (on 2005-08-01) for Akbar Ganji, asking for his immediate release.
A few notes are necessary here for illuminating the public opinion and revealing the purposes of the MKO.
It's now 46 days since Ganji started his hunger strike and this move of him has been the focus of political groups and other media but it's amazing that the MKO has remembered now, due to its opportunist nature, to support him; earlier, the MKO called him a "revolutionary guard" and an "agent of the regime".
It was MKO's policies, in politically supporting a part of Islamic Republic in condemning Berlin Conference, that troubled Ganji and others like him, isn't it? Now this cult tries to take advantage of the pains of Ganji and deceive the people but this time the case is too big for the terrorists to handle.
How is that an organization like the MKO- which believes in armed struggle and asks for foreign invasion to Iran for possible changes and has delayed Iranians' liberation movements by more than 2 decades of terrorist acts- now supports known reformist figure (who is against terror and armed struggle) only to deceive public opinon?
Has the MKO changed its ideas? If yes, then why aren't these changes expressed in their behavior?
Who's responsible for years of terror and blood shedding in Iran and what's the role of Mojahedin in this regard? The Awa Club believes that the MKO is lying as before and there have been no changes in the ideas of this group due to its old cultist structure.
While Akbar Ganji condemns groups like the MKO in his ideas and writings and believes in resorting to peaceful ways and public votes for getting to political goals, MKO has reluctantly supported him (with 46-days delay) which proves opportunism in this group.
On the other hand, MKO's announcement shows that the strategy of civil reformist struggles are fruitful but this organization which suffers from historical retardation can't understand Iran's internal affairs.
Awa club, asking for the freedom of Mr. Ganji and supporting democratic movement in Iran, condemns MKO's deceptions and advise them not to smirch freedom-seekers' efforts by such moves.
