Following Maryam Rajavi’s arrest in France, a number of Mojahedin’s sympathizers, reported 20, committed self-immolations in streets of Paris and other Western cities to obtain her liberation. These acts of self-burning were organizationally preset acts of dissent dictated to the members who practiced them.
This has been referred to in the website of Mansour Ghadr Khah, a member of NCRI, called “Iran liberty”. In this regard Ghadr Khah states: “Hundreds of people have inscribed themselves in the list for self-immolation. So, if the French government does not put an end to its common plot with the Iranian regime, they are determined to set themselves ablaze.”
