Mr. Varshi defected the Mojahedin- e Khalq group and managed to run away the Cult after 27 years.
Ashur Varshi now resides in a hotel in Baghdad, Iraq. As soon as he stepped the free world, Ashur called his brother; Ghorban. He introduced himself and said that he was free, living in a hotel in Baghdad. His brother was shocked and couldn’t stop crying. The Varshi family were really happy they could hear Ashur’s voice after nearly three decades.
Ashur asked to talk to his parents. He said that he missed his mother a lot. Unfortunately his parents were dead while he was captive of MKO Cult.
Another camp liberty resident escaped along with Ashur. Mr. Mahmoud Ruhollahi is from Babolsar and now resides in the same hotel as Ashur.
