In 1994 US Department of State gave a report about Mojahedin Khalq Organization, Permanently headed by cult leaders Massoud and Maryam Rajavi. It gave the most up-to-date and researched report in 40 pages describing the nature of the Mojahedin, their internal relations as well as their involvement in killing Kurds, Iraqis, Iranians as well as Americans. The report revealed their total dependency on Saddam Hussein.
In 1997 the US government listed Mojahedin Khalq Organization and its aliases in the list of Terrorist Groups. Ever since, the group has failed to come out of the list in periodic reviews. National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCR, NCRI), one of the more famous aliases of Mojahedin Khalq (also run by self-appointed leaders Massoud and Maryam Rajavi) has also been added to the list.

The United Kingdom, in year 2000, added the name of Mojahedin Khalq organization to its list of proscribed terrorist organizations (Terrorism Act 2000). Many attempts by Rajavi to overturn the decision have failed and the Mojahedin are currently listed.
After the September 11 tragedy, the European Union drew up a list or terrorist organisations and included Mojahedin Khalq Organization and its aliases to this list. The group has been listed ever since in every review to date.
Canada also added this organization to its official list of proscribed terrorist organizations in 2005. Canada had banned the Mojahedin in Canada but had not put them on the official list which makes any contribution or support for the Rajavi cult a crime.
In May 2005, Human Rights Watch (HRW) published a condemning report on the abuse of human rights by leaders of Mojahedin against their own people in Iraq. Human Rights Watch also brought to light the way they have been using psychological methods to keep their members against their will.
The majority of non-western countries in the Far East, Middle East, Asia and Africa have announced the Rajvi cult under the name of Mojahedin Khalq Organization and its aliases, including the National Council of Resistance, as an outlaw terrorist cult – including the new Iraqi government which has vowed to deal with them according to the laws of the land. Currently about 3500 Mojahedin have been held in a camp in Iraq since the fall of Saddam Hussein. Many in the camp have announced that they had been taken there by deceit and kept by force and want to leave the cult.
