Mohammad Reza (Ray) Torabi, a former child soldier of the People’s Mujahedin Organization (PMOI/ MEK), once again spoke about his distressing experiences of captivity in this cult to inform Iranian people.
Having spent the best part of his youth, from the age of 16 to 35, in what he calls the “evil cult,” he lost his father under the torture by the cult’s leaders, and now he speaks of a mother who is has been terribly brainwashed by Masoud and Maryam Rajavi.
Ray Torabi, the son of Ghorban Ali Torabi and Zahra Siraj, says that his mother gave him the label of being a mercenary of the Islamic Republic. With a bitter smile, he calls his mother “the follower of Massoud and Maryam Rajavi” who has been so brainwashed and deprived of human values by their destructive cult that she seeks denies the love of her son.
Ray’s reaction to this difficult situation and the unpleasant news that his friend brought him from Albania, is reflected in his video message on hi8s Facebook account with a sense of sadness or resignation. His self-confidence helps him with the unkind words by the side of his mother.
As a matter of fact, he regards MEK leaders the criminals who have drained all human values from the hearts and minds of their members. He calls Maryam Rajavi “dishonorable” and “traitor” and not only considers her claims about human rights and democracy false, but also finds her deserving of trial and prison for her crimes against her members.
In the end, Torabi calls on the people of Iran to have a deeper understanding of the MEK and eventually hate this destructive cult more than before.
