Mansoor Rahdar has been taken as a hostage by the Mujahedin-e Khalq for 35 years. His family have not had any contact with him since his mandatory recruitment by the MEK.
Mansoor was a young soldier from Gilan, fighting in Iran-Iraq war when in 1988 he was taken as a hostage by the MEK agents in the war fronts in Mehran region, South-West of Iran. Once he was captured in the MEK’s Camp Ashraf, he was never allowed to contact his family in Iran.
Mansoor’s family have so far written several open letters published by Nejat Society in the hope that he will see the letters someday. In her most recent letter addressing Mansoor, his sister, Zahra wrote of her concerns over the health of the brother who is now an elderly residing in the MEK’s military-like camp in Manez, Albania.
“Why don’t you answer our letters?” Zahra Rahdar asks her brother. “Are you alive at all? I wrote you several letters and there was no answer. Even, three years ago, after I wrote you that our father had died you did not give any reaction.”
Considering that their mother is too old to wait for Mansoor, Zahra asks him to call them as soon as he can. As always, she leaves her phone number at the bottom of the letter in the hope that Mansoor will break the mental bars of the Cult of Rajavi and contact his family soon.
