MEK Iran: The Iranian Regime’s Supporters Have Been Making Their Own Statements About Islam
The regime uses seminaries to propagate its ideology, which focuses on the regime’s fundamentalist rules based on their interpretation of the Islamic code. However, there are some changes which are taking place as follows:
- According to Jafar Montazeri, one the regime’s clerics and the regime’s Attorney General in 2018, said “In the city of Qom, some pseudo-clerics in the form of organizations are holding meetings, and the subject of the meeting of these gentlemen is how to remove the issue of Velayat-e-Faqih from the constitution and the system.’’

- Kazem Sedighi, the Tehran prayers leader, said recently in front of the regime’s supreme leader, Ali Khamenei, that: “the atheism virus, the political disbelief virus, is far more dangerous than the coronavirus.” (State TV, 26 August)
- A cleric called Naser Rafi’s said in Khamenei’s presence on 27th August that: “some people in our clothes and the clothes of the clergy are saying bad things, sometimes like the same from overseas, and some of them are cleric students and some clerics. But friends who sometimes on the cyberspace in lectures and sometimes in our own clothes, disappoint people all the time, you are responsible to God.”
- Mohammad Safar Harandias, an IRGC commander, revealed in an interview that: “some in the war thought they have been cheated, others in the same period that we were fighting, were closing their burdens, and said, so let’s go and look for our own life. Some were hesitant about the legitimacy of those speeches.” (State-TV Channel 4, 28 August).
Attorney-General Mohammad Jafar Montazeri recommended his Lieutenants that "We should not be afraid of amputation thefts' hands."

Mohammad Ali Ale-Hashem, another of the regime’s key clerics, said: “We must strengthen hope and vitality in Islamic Iranian society. Young people, in particular, should be hopeful about their future and their final task.”
Naser Rafi’i said about The People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI /MEK Iran), the regime’s main opposition, that: “some people find their wages to create frustration, and this is very dangerous, they constantly point out our weaknesses. In Albania, some people are being paid to say these things, to lie, and to disappoint the people.”
Rafi’ I added: “In the society, a lot of words and hadiths with the theme of Rajavi’s sinister claims are transmitted mouth to mouth, but also within the structure of the system, some people willingly or unwillingly, consciously or unconsciously, but just like Rajavi’s claims are repeated and opposed to holding mourning ceremonies!
“And along with this warning, we hear that already pdf documents of Massoud Rajavi’s (Massoud Rajvai, chairman, and founder of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI)) ‘World view’ (Tabiin Jahan) books circulate in theological seminaries and universities of the country and are shared by students.” (Nasim Kermanshah website, 21 August)

Fearing this situation, cleric Ahmad Alamolhoda, one of the key clerics and the prayer leader of Mashhad city, in a meeting with the ideological and political head of the police force, on 16 August, said: “Muharram and Safar in these circumstances became the bases so that anti-Islam and counter-revolutionaries can make more conspiracies and sedition. Imam (regime’s founder Khomeini) said that the armed forces should not interfere in the political currents, not be indifferent to the currents that harm the revolution and should have the motivation and opinion to defend the revolution.”
One thing that the regime fears the most is losing its despotic power while enforcing Islam as the one and only religion. They are using Islam to suppress democracy so that the people will not turn to the MEK because of their fear of losing Islam. The truth of the matter is that the MEK has no religious preference and supports the plurality of religions and not a nation-state based on one religion alone. MEK is not against Islam.
