Two brothers, defected from Mojahedin Khalq (Rajavi cult, MKO, MEK)

Bahadori brothers returned to their home town Jolfa,Eastern Azarbayjan.

Shahram and Shahrouz Bahadori were warmly welcomed by their family after 14 years of imprisonment in the camps of the Mujahedin Khalq Organization (the MKO).

Bahadori brothers were recruited by the MKO in 2002 in Baku Azarbayjan where the older one was working. The MKO recruiters promised to provide them with European refuge.

Although they were promised a better life in Europe, they found themselves in Turkey and then Iraqi Camp Ashraf where they were immediately separated from each other. They were not allowed to meet each other for years. They were not told about their family who had several times come to visit them in Camp Ashraf, Iraq. The brothers made efforts to meet each other for eight years. Whenever they asked for a visit they were punished by the group leaders.

After their relocation from Camp Ashraf to Camp Liberty, they succeeded to meet each other randomly and eventually they managed to escape from the cult of Rajavi after the recent rocket attack on Camp Liberty in November.

Then, they were aided by the UN and Iraqi human rights bodies and the Iranian embassy in Baghdad in order to return to their country.

One of the brothers told Nejat Society that a large number of members of the group are thinking of leaving the group but they are kept busy in computer classes- without the Internet – because leaders claim that they will be sent to Europe after finishing their alleged computer training course.

Cult leaders keep members in a state of hesitation and passiveness by threatening them that leaving the MKO ends with death and destruction.

Family, Menacing Icon for the Cult of Rajavi Mujahedin Khalq ‘s Cultism

Family, Menacing Icon for the Cult of Rajavi Mujahedin Khalq ‘s Cultism

One sure sign of someone being involved in a cult is that there is a clear separation from family and friends. This sign is clearly observed in the Cult of Rajavi (The Mujahedin khalq Organization/ the MKO). There are numerous cases of families of the group members residing in Camp Liberty Iraq who have been striving to visit their loved ones in the camp but they are absolutely barred by the authorities to do so and they are labeled the group authorities who forbid any kind of family relationship, label the families as “agents of the regime’s intelligence Ministry under the cover of families of the residents”. However, the efforts of the suffering families picketing in front of Camp Liberty resulted favorably by the Iraqi Parliament.

Following the meeting between Liberty residents’ families and certain Iraqi MPs, a parliamentary committee was formed to investigate the situation of the MKO members and their families’ request to visit their loved ones in the camp. They are hoping that the Iraqi administration will take proper actions to facilitate their visit. The parliament website reported that a member of the parliament’s leadership board, Dr. Humam Hamoudi had recommended the Human Rights Commission and Foreign Relations Commission to form a delegation to visit Camp Liberty in order to get first-hand information about the situation in the camp. This will help them to transfer the family’s wishes to their loved ones about their desires to visit them in the camp.

On the other side of the battle, the MKO’s propaganda does not remain silent. It publishes a so-called letter of families of liberty residents to the UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon. In the alleged letter, the alleged “liberty residents’ families residing in Europe and the United States” are “gravely concerned” about the lives of their children!

The so-called letter is a failed tactic because of the numerous evidences on violation of the rights of family in the MKO camps. Regardless of the grieves of a large number of families from Iran who have been endeavoring to visit their beloveds in Camp Ashraf and Camp Liberty, the truths on the family rights abuse inside the MKO is undeniable.

Despite the MKO propaganda calls for visa for families in Europe and the US, there are families who were granted visa to travel to Iraq but they were prevented from visiting their loved ones in the Camps. Mustafa and Mahboubeh Mohammadi, whose daughter Somayeh has been taken as hostage by the MKO leaders, went to Camp Ashraf Iraq several times. They were not allowed to visit their daughter and even they were beaten by the MKO agents. However, the Mohammadis did not stop their efforts to save their daughter from the cult bars of the MKO.

Mustafa Mohammadi together with his other daughter Hurieh even went to the MKO’s headquarters in Auver sur d’oise to urge the group leaders to release their long lost daughter. Once more, they were attacked by the group agents for seeking their most basic right, the right to have a free contact with their loved one. Mostafa and Hurrieh were accompanied by another heartbroken father, Ghorban Ali Hosseinnezhad. When Gorban Ali escaped Camp Ashraf his daughter was left behind in the camp.

According to his testimonies, when he was in the camp he was not allowed to visit his daughter regularly. “The leaders of the MKO cult did not allow me and my first daughter Zeinab, 34, to visit and talk to each other while we were both in the same camp,” said Hosseinnezhad. “We were just allowed to meet each other on the New Year’s celebration for an hour or two and under their direct control and supervision.”

In Hurriyeh Mohammadi’s report on their trip to Auver sur D’oise you can read: “The Mojahedin are threatened by a father and daughter that have put their lives on hold many times and have used the little resources they have to fly to Paris to ask for the safety of Somayeh. They call themselves an organization for the liberation of the people of Iran yet they cannot even provide freedom to the ones they call their own. We will not stop fighting for the safety of our children and this will not be over until these captives are freed.

As usual, the MKO propaganda labels the two fathers as agents of the Iranian Intelligence but there are many more evidences on the cases of violation against families in the group. Forced divorces and separation of children from parents are two iconic examples of abuses took place in the MKO after the so-called ideological revolution of Massoud Rajavi. Human Rights Watch and the US Defence Department’s RAND report, both mentioned the fact.

In Persian references you can see testimonies of former members who reveal horrible evidences about child abuses committed in the MKO camps. Manijeh Habashi and Nadereh Afshari, Batoul Soltani and many others are female defectors of the Cult of Rajavi who recount horrific facts about distorted family relations in the MKO camps. Before the children were dispatched to Europe in 1991, mothers in Ashraf were not permitted to live with their children. They were just allowed to visit their children on certain days of the week or certain hours of the day.

The above mentioned cases of violation of family rights occur in the camps of the MKO where no visa is needed to travel to visit a family member and the distance between two family members is not more than a few kilometer.

In a letter to UNHCR, former members of the MKO including Ghorban Ali Hosseinnejad ask the authorities to provide residents of Camp liberty with a situation so that they can decide for their future with their free will. “Many of us have been in this organization, before being able to find a way out of it, for decades”, they state.” We are fully aware of the brainwashing and intimidation activities that take place at every level with the single aim of isolating the members from the outside world and feeding them false information and targeted propaganda to turn them against their own families.”

The signatories of the letter believe that family connections –that the MKO members have been deprived of for many years—are a key to release them mentally and eventually physically. “Based on our personal experience, we assure you that if you facilitate the meeting of the members with their families in a protected and private space, without the presence of their superiors, they will find the courage to express their true desire that is to join their families and relocate from Iraq,” they write.

While the MKO propaganda claims that Iraqi government does not grant visas to families of liberty residents, this is the call of families who repeatedly went to Iraq, stand behind the gates of Ashraf and Liberty but they were not granted “visa” to visit their loves ones who are taken as hostages behind the bars of the camp:

“We will go to any lengths and are begging anyone who can hear our voices to help us. Please help free our kids from their evil clutches. Help their voices be heard. Help mothers take their children back into their arms. Help children see the advancement of the world and live the rest of their lives not in fear but tranquility and peace.

Families of Liberty Residents at the Doors

Second group of families of Liberty residents went to the camp near Baghdad, Iraq.

On Friday November 20th, another group of families of residents of Camp Liberty – taken as hostages by the Mujahedin Khalq Organization (the MKO) picketed in front of the camp in an effort to get news about their loved ones there.

These families demand the local authorities of the UNHCR to aid them with information about their dear ones who are not allowed to visit them.

The families were from Eastern Azarbayjan, Markazi and Isfahan provinces. They stayed the previous night in a hotel in Baghdad. They were present in front of the doors of Liberty, on Friday morning at 10 O’clock.

They are determined not to leave the camp unless the UNHCR gives them proper information about the destiny of their children and unless they are able to have a short visit with them.

As well as the first time, using loudspeakers, cellphones and cameras was forbidden for the families but they tried to cry the names of the children so energetically that they could hear them. They also tried to enter the Camp but they were not allowed.

They called on all human rights activists including Europe-based defectors of the MKO to support the action taken by the families and to put pressure on the UNHCR to allow families to visit their children. The UN should answer why it is acting in line with the ambitions of the Rajavis.

Families at Camp Liberty say ‘meeting our loved ones is a fundamental human right’

Newly arrived families stand outside Camp Liberty holding placards with the names of their loved ones. The slogans they shout say that ‘meeting with our loved ones is our fundamental human right’. Many have been denied contact for decades because the Rajavi cult bans members from contacting their families. These families are concerned that their loved ones may be transferred to Albania without notice and are appealing to UN and Iraqi officials as well as the MEK’s supporters to allow them to meet with them.

They will visit Camp Liberty tomorrow where they hope to make contact with their loved ones.

Nejat families letter to Presdient Alebadi

Dear Mr. Presdient Heidar Alebadi,

We are a number of families from Ilam Province, Iran. Each family has a loved one taken as a hostage by the Mujahdin Khalq Organization (the cult of Rajavi) for over twenty years. Our beloved children have not been allowed to even make a phone call to contact us. The Cult of Rajavi has kept them behind the bars of the cult against their will.

Your majesty and the international community have witnessed a lot of the MKO’s hostages fleeing Camp Ashraf and Camp Liberty. They escaped their life and went to Europe where they revealed the true face of the cult.

They write of mental and physical torture they tolerated in the Cult of Rajavi. They tell their stories but the international and human rights bodies keep silent. No one care for our loved ones who have not succeeded to escape the MKO Camps.

We have traveled to Iraq several times, waiting behind the tall walls of Ashraf, suffering the hot weather in the hope of visiting our loved ones for just a moment, even from far distance.

Your cooperation and understanding to aid us meet our loved ones will be greatly appreciated.

Respectfully Yours,

Akbar Cheraghi
