“Despite their pro-freedom, justice and equality gestures, MKO gangleaders have no faith in such principals and discriminate against the members who are from different religions and ethnics,” A defected MKO member was quoted as saying by Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA).
According to Habilian Association, the ex-MKO member was invited to give a speech in a gathering in Sanandaj City of Kurdistan province. She said in a part of her speech: “The MKO cult doesn’t believe in any religions or ethnics. They believe their cult must be uniform and apart from any religious or ethnic views.”
She continued: “I was a member of the group as a Sunni Kurd but I wasn’t allowed to express my beliefs.”
The former member of the terrorist group also reiterated: “MKO members were always told they all had to think the same and all the views must be united and no one should express their beliefs.”
She also pointed out how she was recruited in the group and said: “I had planned to go abroad to continue my studies but unfortunately, I was kidnapped by the MKO and found myself in the middle of Camp Ashraf.”
According to her, she was totally unaware of MKO cult’s activities. She had illegally entered the Turkish soil along with her uncle and her brother with the purpose of going to Italy. In Turkey, she was arrested at the airport by the Police because of her spurious passport.
She continued: “I was unaware of all these and as I trusted my uncle, I couldn’t understand I was going to be trapped in the MKO. I had no idea my uncle was a member of the terrorist group.
She further explained the process of her recruitment and said: “I was released 24 hours later and understood the MKO had arranged my release. After I was released, I was taken to the railway station where I was told we were leaving for Italy. After hours of waiting, some women in military costumes took me over. Days after, I insisted on asking our geographical position and it was when I understood I was at Camp Ahraf. I complained but they didn’t care. I asked for my brother and my uncle but they said they had no idea who and where they were.
She also referred to the psychological torture she had to bear at Camp Ahraf and said: “the tortures were so heavy for me that I suffered from two months of absolute Alzheimer and couldn’t remember anything from my past.”
She also pointed out her complaints and her disaffection regarding to activities in the cult and said: “I was replied: you can get in here with free will, but departure is forbidden in the group.
She said she was unaware of her family for a long time and continued: “Six months after I was brought to Camp Ashraf, I saw my brother. After the Americans invaded Iraq, my brother escaped the cult and joined them. The Americans had promised him to help return me from the Camp.”
At the end, she said: “After my frequent complaints of my life in Camp Ashraf, they finally called my mother and told her to come and take my dead body. My mother came to Iraq and found my brother and started her efforts to take me out of the Camp Ashraf. Her efforts finally led to my freedom and when the Americans asked the cult, they couldn’t disagree with letting me go.”
