1- MEK and Children – Homa Khodabandeh

Homa was born in Newcastle, UK in 1979, coinciding with the Iranian Revolution. Her father Ebrahim Khodabandeh was an active member of The Muslim Students’ Association abroad. In the summer of 1980, Ebrahim joined the Mujahedin Khalq Organization (the MKO/ MEK/ PMOI/ the Cult of Rajavi) that he had found Islamic, nationalistic and anti-Imperialist. When became a full time member of the group, he left his British wife and the one and a half year-old Homa.

The MEK and Children – Homa Khodabadeh & Adeleh Khabazian

Homa was eleven years old that got to know about her father. She saw her ID card for the first time. At school she wrote an essay about the father that she knew who he was but she did not know where he was.
Then, Homa’s grandmother took her to Baghdad, Iraq to meet her father. A few visit were made between the father and the girl but under the supervision of the MEK commanders. Homa left Iraq with tearful eyes because her father was not even able to accompany her to the airport.

During the following years, the group constantly asked Ebrahim to encourage her daughter to join the group. He was not allowed to visit Homa except with the intention of bringing her to the group’s events but the father and her daughter were not willing to do so.

Once Ebrahim Khodabandeh was in Sweden, Homa was informed by her aunt Sudabeh Khodabandeh about the whereabouts of her father. She was 16 years old when her grandmother took her to Sweden to visit her father for a very short time, in the MEK’s base in Sweden.

Ebrahim was in Baghdad when he found out that the IRC office had a letter for him. He could receive the letter only after he could convince the MEK commanders. Homa had written to his father that she was going to marry and had asked him to call her. When Ebrahim could manage to call her she was married with two children. This was the consequence of a longtime challenge between the IRC and the MEK leaders who did not want Ebrahim to keep in touch with her daughter.

When Ebrahim Khodabandeh was arrested in the Syrain border, the MEK authorities contacted Homa –who had just given birth to her third baby— telling her that her father was under torture in Iran and would be executed very soon. They asked her to take part in an anti-Iran demonstration in London. They even tried defiantly to convince her to set herself on fire in front of the Iranian embassy. She finally threatened them that she would call the police.

Homa who had only visited her father for a few short times, began to take legal actions to pursue the case of her father in Evin prison via the Iranian embassy in London. A year later, she traveled to Iran together with her husband and their three children. Before her departure for Iran, the MEK authorities called her and tried to stop her from going to Iran terrifying her of the government in Tehran.

However, in Tehran, Homa visited her father in Evin prison and then she met the Judge of the case trying to help her father. After she returned to Britain, she called the MEK to tell them about the situation of her father in Iran but they never answered her call.

Homa is now 42 years old, the mother of five children. She has a good life now but her memories of childhood are not pleasant to her. She always says: “Left with no letters or phone calls, it is so hard for a girl that she does not know where her father is, what he does”. However, the harder thing was the way the MEK treated her. The MEK wanted to abuse Homa on behalf of its own interests.

Homa was lucky that her grandmother supported her raising her an independent and vigilant girl. She is a pious Musli now and the manager of the educational institute that she has established herself. Her bigger son Soleiman is a Medical student, her second son Salaheddin is a mechanical engineering student, her daughter Saleheh goes to pre university school. Ebrahim and Mohammad, both students, are her younger children.

2- MEK and Children – Adeleh Khabazian

There is no information about her current whereabouts. She was the daughter of a Mujahed family. Her father Mohammad Khabazian and her mother Maryam Hajkhanban were members of the Mujahedin Khalq Organization (the MKO/ PMOI/ MEK/ Cult of Rajavi).

In 1991, Adeleh and her siblings together with hundreds of children of the MEK members were sent from Camp Ashraf, Iraq to Europe. The authorities of the group relocated Adeleh and her younger sister Atefeh in Germany and their two brothers in the United States.

At the time, Adeleh was a seventeen-year-old student. The group had charged her with the responsibility of training younger children of the Mujahedin. Like other children, she had also some other organizational duties such as fundraising activities. “On the weekends, she had to work for the group from early in the morning until late in the evening in cities across Germany,” Nadereh Afshar writes about Adeleh in her book on the MEK titled “Love Forbidden”.

The MEK and Children – Homa Khodabadeh & Adeleh Khabazian

For Adeleh, forced hijab was the subject of disputes with the authorities of the MEK. Although she was living in Europe, she was forced to cover her hair by the group commanders. Nadereh Afshar writes about Adeleh’s issues with the MEK:

“She complained about forced hijab constantly and in response she was always attacked by the group authorities… After too much fighting, Adeleh decided to uncover her hair. Tayebe Rahmani Lahuti — who was a member of the group’s Elite Council and wanted to bring freedom for Iranian people—told her that her mother should allow her to remove her scar , after she realized that beating and intimidating Adeleh would not work!
“They brought the mother on the phone (the line of resistance!) to intimidate her daughter to cover her hair. The innocent girl told her mother: “I am ashamed that my mother is a Mujahed”. She hung up the phone while her mother was lecturing about the revolutionary advantages of hijab.”

The MEK commanders held several meetings for Adeleh to convince her to keep her hijab. Having been failed in their efforts, they finally labeled her “traitor chicken” and expelled her and her sister out of the organization.

Adeleh who had got rid of tough days of living inside the group, started exposing facts about the world inside the mujahedin khalq. Now, it was the father’s turn to take action to coerce the daughter to the organization’s rules.

“The father himself was a victim of Massoud Rajavi’s doctrine, came to punish his daughter. Adeleh was punched and kicked by her father although he had never harassed his children until that day,” Afshar writes about the fate of Adeleh in the MEK.

Hanif moved between eight different families until he turned 18

He has been a member of Sweden Parliament since 2010 but he was born in Kermanshah, Iran in 1987. Three years later in Camp Ashraf, his Mujahed parents left him in the hands of the agents of the Mujahedin Khalq Organization (the MKO, MEK, PMOI, Cult of Rajavi) to take Hanif to Europe together with hundreds of other children of the MEK members.

Hanif is a successful Swedish citizen now because he is one of those few lucky MEK children who was not returned to Camp Ashraf, Iraq, to receive military training. However, in an interview with Manoto TV in 2016, he recounted heartbreaking stories of his childhood as an orphan in a foreign country. This is what he said about his biological parents: “Mothers were allowed to call their children only once a year. My father has called me only twice in my entire life.”

Mek and Children – Hanif Bali

Hanif arraived in Sweden when he was three years old and moved between eight different families until he turned 18. He spoke of his several moms, “When I was told “your mom”, I had to ask “Which mom?” because I had several moms. “

Today, you can find out a few new details of Hanif’s challenging childhood among his diverse parents and families. On May 2017, he wrote a short caption for a photo of himself by the side of his biological father on his Instagram account: “I met my biological father at 13:30. I do not think DNA test is necessary” (referring to their high resemblance).

Another significant photo shows baby Hanif next to another man. The clarifying caption explains his controversial life far from his biological parents:

“In my entire childhood, I had a lot of fathers. Father is not always biologic or the one who you lived with more or the one who was kinder or more violent than others. Sometimes your dad can be the one who you had the most challenging relationship with but he was the same person who you knew profoundly and loved the most. I have portraits of several fathers in my mind but I had only one dad. I miss him every day.”

“The MEK mobilized every child over fifteen to the operation Forough Javidan and eventually some of them were killed such as Alireza Gheitani’s sister [Maryam]. She was 15 when she was killed. Some parents of little children were both killed in the operation. They never got back. These children were left with other members of the group. They were confused because they just did not know why their parents were not there anymore.”

GhorbanAli Hosseinnejad former member of the group was Amir’s Arabic teacher at Camp Ashraf. “After the defection of his father, Amir’s last name was changed into his mother’s. He was called Amir Nazari by the group leaders, “Hosseinnejad writes. “I had no clue that he would lose his life under wrong politics and violent ambitions of Rajavi. “ MEK and Children – Amir Shams Haeri

A Star of Ashraf Galaxy” was the title of honor that Amir received after he was killed. Amir Shams Haeri was 34 years old when he was killed together with 51 other members of the Mujahedin Khalq in the attack by “Iraqi Intifada Youth” to Camp Ashraf, Iraq.

His father Hadi Shams Haeri was a longstanding member of the MEK before his defection. He joined the group in 1975. Amir was born in 1979. Following the MEK clashes with the newly established Iranian government after the Iranian revolution, Hadi fled to Iraq to join the MEK alongside his wife (Mahin Nazari) and their two children Amir and Nosrat.

MEK and Children - Amir Shams Haeri

Hadi defected the group in 1991 but the MEK leaders took Amir and his sister as hostages and never let them out.

Mehdi Khoshhal an MEK defector and a friend of Hadi writes about his endeavors to take his children back from the group.

“In 1993 Hadi finally reached Netherlands where he could find a stable situation. There, he got to know that the MEK had brought Amir and Nosrat to Germany,” Mehdi Khoshhal writes about Hadi. “He went from Netherlands to Germany to look for his kids at mojahedin’s school. But, the MEK sent their mother Mahin Nazari from Iraq to Germany in order to take the kids to Iraq in revenge for Hadi’s demand to take them.”

In October 2010, Hadi was sick and tired of years of endless efforts to take his children out of the Cult of Rajavi. He wrote an open letter to Amir and Nosrat opening up his grieves in these 20 years of separation. He spoke of a large number of letters that he had sent via the International Red Cross to his kids and were never received by them. In the letter, he advised his children to make a correct decision for their future life telling Amir:

“Son! you are reaching the second half of your life. You should make a conclusive decision and as the older brother you should help your sister Nosrat and save her [from the MEK]. Even you may be able to help your mother find herself and get back to a normal life and contact her family. Dear Amir, I am close to death. I may have no more chance to see you. If you are late, I will not be able to meet you. I am afraid I cannot see you before my death. My beloveds, my message is not political at all. It’s up to you how to think. My message is the message of a suffering heartbroken father whose only wish is to see you, you prosperity and happiness.”

The father died longing to see his children but he did not know that Amir also would die only two years after his father died. GhorbanAli Hosseinnejad former member of the group was Amir’s Arabic teacher at Camp Ashraf.

“After the defection of his father, Amir’s last name was changed into his mother’s. He was called Amir Nazari by the group leaders, “Hosseinnejad writes. “I had no clue that he would lose his life under wrong politics and violent ambitions of Rajavi. “

Children who belong to Massoud Rajavi (Mojahedin Khalq, MKO, MEK, NCRI …)

Victoria Cayzer and Laura Hue-Williams have not had anything to do with their families since they were psychologically manipulated by a self-styled “spiritual healer”, Anne Craige. The two distressing parallel cases of two sociable girls were recently reported by the Daily Mail. Eventually, parents of the girls together with certain authorities are campaigning for a change in the law to make psychological manipulation and mental abuse a crime, according to the Mail. [1]

Children in destructive cults belong to the leader, with all members of the group considered their “family,” and the leader, their father or mother. The Mujahedin Khalq Organization (the MKO/ the Cult of Rajavi) is a notoriously known example of such destructive cults that indoctrinate children to leave their parents behind and to yield themselves to the leaders’ ambitions. Somayeh Mohammadi was 17 when she left her family in Canada for Camp Ashraf, Iraq to receive military training with the Mujahedin Khalq Organization (the MKO).

Somayeh was a Canadian and American teenager who was deceitfully recruited by MEK and sent to Camp Ashraf, where she was trained for guerilla fights and forced to stay inevitably. In an independent letter sent to the Canadian embassy in Jordan, Somayeh asked for the Canadian government’s help to get her back to Toronto. Later however, she was forced by MEK in a court hearing to denounce her family and state that she wants to stay with MEK, according to a documentary made by CBS Television in 2006. [2]

Somayeh’s father, Mustafa was a faithful supporter of the MKO himself for more than 30 years. He encouraged his daughter, Somayeh, to join the group in Iraq at their training camp for a few months training but the passage of time, and the confinement of his daughter for years in the Cult of Rajavi (the MKO), caused Mustafa to lose trust in Masoud Rajavi and his cult-like group. Now, He is deeply concerned about his daughter, her future and safety. So he has continued his quest in international bodies and his multiple journeys to Iraq and the group’s headquarters in Paris to get his daughter back.

Yet, Mustafa is not alone. The number of children who were recruited by the MKO cult is countless and the years that their parents haven’t seen them mount to over a decade. Every now and then, there are reports on families who have picketed in front of the MKO’s camp near Baghdad. But, they are not allowed by the MKO leaders to visit their loved ones who are taken as hostages in the camp.

The list of young and teenage recruits who were tricked to join the cult of Rajavi include a large number of children of the group’s members who were once separated from their parents and had been sent to Europe or those adolescents who had left Iran to immigrate to Europe seeking job and a better life but they were kidnapped by the MKO recruiters in third countries especially Turkey.

Very few children of the MKO members were lucky enough to get rid of the MKO cult-like system. Hanif Bali, the Iranian Swedish parliamentarian whose parents were MKO members, was sent to Sweden when he was only three but later on he decided to never get back to the group’s camp in Iraq. “I was lucky that I didn’t get back to Iraq”, he says. ”If I had accepted to join the group at that day, I would have been in a camp in the midst of war, in the midst of misery.” [3]

No matter why and how they joined the MKO, they are now kept under a severe mind control system that indoctrinates them to forget their family, friends and normal life. According to the Daily mail, both British families who are now campaigning to release their daughters from cult abuse, have not seen their loved daughters for a few years. However, the British Prime Minister is supporting them in their efforts to get their children back to the family. ”David Cameron is backing a campaign for new laws protecting vulnerable adults from control or slavery by predators, including therapists,” reported the Mail. ”Justice Secretary Michael Gove and Cabinet troubleshooter Oliver Letwin are examining how to clamp down on psychological manipulation and abuse.” [4]

As a matter of fact, cult indoctrination and psychological manipulation and its perils are not restricted to British boundaries and British families. Definitely, the UN and other international human rights bodies should also be considerate enough to listen to many families who have been suffering grievously since their children were abducted by the Cult of Rajavi.

So far, the UN and its supporters have turned blind eye on numerous letters and petitions written by families of the MKO hostages. The Mujahedin khalq Organization and its affiliates should be considered by the international bodies as destructive cults and its leaders should be brought to justice for the crimes the committed against humanity.

Yeser Ezati: Mojahedin Khalq (MKO, MEK, Rajavi cult) armed me by my Mom’s fake will

Former MKO member: They armed me by my Mom’s fake will

Yaser Ezzati, a former member of the Mujahedin Khalq Organization was interviewed by Mehr News Agency. Below is an excerpt of the interview.

Yaser was considered as a member of the MKO militia because his parents were also old members of the group; Yaser grew up in the MKO camps in Iraq.

Yaser was sent to Canada under the pretext of the group’s so-called policy to save children.

Yaser was returned to the MKO in Germany where he attended fundraising gatherings.”In 1997 the MKO gave me a fake will allegedly of my mother who was killed in Mersad Operation [Eternal Light],” Yaser said.”It was written:”You must take gun and follow my path”. I was impressed.” Thus, he was sent to Iraq where the group was rebuilding its forces after the horrific failure of the Eternal Light.

…Yaser Ezzati was mobilized to Iranian border to launch cross border mortar attacks.

“After I attended four operations, I declared that I gave up because I had no idea of what and who we were attacking,” he said. “I was told that I was a child of the group and I shouldn’t have disgraced the group.”

Ultimately, the MKO officials accepted his defection on the condition that he went on a six-month solitary confinement and then he would be sent to Iran.

Yaser who was so scared of getting back to Iran – that was terribly demonized by the MKO – stayed in Camp Ashraf until he was fed up with the brainwashing meetings that he had to attend every week.”Weekly Cleansing” was a cult jargon in which members had to confess all their private thoughts and dreams.” I could no more tolerate the condition”. Therefore, he was imprisoned in solitary confinement. He was brought on trial and accused of being the agent of Iranian Intelligence Ministry!

“Again they brought in my Mother’s will; I had no way out.”

The former member of the MKO Cult states that his father is known to be a torturer in the MKO.”He even beat me several times after I declared defection.”!

. Whenever I missed my parents my father would receive me by beating and kicking me.”

He continued,”some children in the MKO went crazy. I remember a person who committed suicide.”

He notifies that the militias are kept in the organization by recruiting them and paying them. They are offered free trips to attend the group rallies.

“I have not forgotten my past yet because an important part of my life, my childhood, my adolescence were lost for the misguided goal of the MKO”, he uttered.
