According to Maryam Rajavi the leader of the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK/ PMOI), women’s leadership is the guarantee for democracy and equality. She is right but the leadership of Iranian women, not the MEK’s women. Female members of the MEK are symbols of human rights violations. They are deprived of life with its various aspects.
The various aspects life are physical health, family and friends, relationships, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. Experts say that we must know how to balance the various aspects of life in order to lead a happy and healthy life. These aspects of life are absolutely unheard of in the MEK.
On the occasion of the International Women’s Day, the MEK leader speaks of democracy and equality for Iranian women while the condition of women inside her group is disastrous. Maryam Rajavi speaks of forced hijab as a violator of Iranian women’s rights while women of her group are not only forced to wear hijab but also, they are not allowed to choose the design, pattern and color of their own clothes.
She apparently advocates a female revolution in Iran while female defectors of the group everyday reveal new dimensions of women’s rights abuses committed in the cult-like system of her group.
Former female members of the MEK such as Batoul Soltani, Zahra Moeini, Homeyra Mohammad Nezhad, Nasrin Ebrahimi, Zahra Mirbagheri and Maryam Sanjabi have constantly denounced the Cult of Rajavi and warned the world about its threat of sectarianism and violence particularly against women.
France and Albanian states should be vigilant enough regarding the MEK’s presence in their territory. In both countries, the group has bases. Camp Ashraf 3, located in Duress, north of Tirana, Albania is an isolated place in which the rights of hundreds of Mujahed women are systematically violated on daily basis.
Today, women across the world including the Iranian women are seeking new achievements in their way towards equality and freedom but the MEK still enslaves women. Women in the Cult of Rajavi are deprived from the most basic human rights. They can never love or be loved. They must be single forever; they cannot be mothers anymore; hysterectomy surgery is an order from leader. Those in the group who had children have been separated from children. Based on their beauty and their ranking in the cult’s hierarchy, MEK’s women have been chosen by Massoud Rajavi, the disappeared leader of the group, as sex partners.
Western audience and human rights bodies must get to know that female members of the MEK endure severe mental and physical tortures under the destructive mind control system of the cult. Maryam Rajavi’s speech on the occasion of the International Women’s Day is ridiculous. She is one of the most horrific violators of women’s rights in the entire human history.
