Greetings to you all
I am very happy to be here in your gathering today.
I have come here to warn the international community to not close their eyes to the continued violations of human rights, daily executions, and repeated crimes of the mullahs’ dictatorship in Iran against members of the PMOI, and to its fanning of the flames of sectarian war in the region, under the guise of nuclear talks with this regime.
Maryam Rajavi is the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).
Born December 4, 1953 in Tehran, Rajavi began her political activism nearly four decades ago. Rajavi attended the Sharif University of Technology in Iran where she earned a B.S. in Metallurgy. After serving as an organizer in the anti-Shah student moment for six years, Rajavi joined the social section of the People’s Mojahedin of Iran in 1979. She was a parliament candidate in 1980 and was named joint-leader of the PMOI in 1985, a position she held until 1993 when she became Secretary General. Additionally in 1993, she became the President-elect of the NCRI.
Rajavi believes, “Fundamentalism has become the primary threat to regional and global peace. The mullahs ruling in Iran manipulate the religious beliefs of more than one billion Muslims to expand their rule and export crisis and tension beyond Iran’s borders.”
