  Errors of a cult leader Mojahedin.wsResearch Bureau Many are unanimous that Rajavi has made critical mistakes as a self-appointed leader leading Mojahedin Khalq Organization (MKO, MEK,PMOI, NLA, NCRI) to the precipice of demise.  Table of contents- An introduction - Rajavi Cooperated with SAVAK  - Cloaking conversion of ranking members - Opposition to ideological revision - Rajavi’s position in the schism of 1975 - Hypocrisy of a Marxist-biased leader - Inter-organizational defiance of a cult leader - Rajavi’s defiant attitude for organizational promotion - Rajavi’s ideological purgesAn introduction Today's man has undergone substantial changes compared to past centuriesconcerning his lifestyle, means of livelihood, manner of thinking, demands,expectations and the like. Modern economics, politics, ethics, institutions,governments, and leaders can hardly be comparable to their historical counterparts;rather they are highly distinct issues. Now, man challenges the past and its socialorganizations; makes an attempt to free himself from past attachments; bears no passivity; and refrains to submit to those leaders seeking to accomplish their ownambitious objectives. Rather, he is willing to find the logic behind all decisionsmade by leaders and submits just to the legitimate ones. Therefore, the role of hegemonic leaders seems to have been faded away and man chooses to be themaster of his own destiny. Consequently, historical leaders come to be subject tocriticism and many have lost their godlike and hallowed status.Throughout history, leaders have served a twofold role. Some leaders have broughtabout fundamental positive changes in social and political structure of societies; onthe contrary, many caused the disintegration of societies due to their corruption,  oppression and violence. Leaders come to power on the demand of masses, bymeans of political and military coup d’état, or through holding national referendumand legitimate elections. Thus, they can be classified as legitimate, corrupt andoppressive and those who force themselves unto the power to lead a hegemonicrule.Among them, the latter ones receive much criticism and have a variety of dissenters. The overall disagreement on their nature has its roots in the lack of aconsensus over the appropriate style of leadership. Although fascists advocate the policies adopted by Hitler and Mussolini, democrats consider them to be againstdemocracy and freedom. Likewise, Stalinists considered his dictatorship inevitablein that particular period when he reined the USSR. Quite the opposite, hisopponents considered it a factor relevantly resulting in the development of an anti-communist trend in the world. Now years after the fall of the main communistcamp, the communism-phobia is still dominating over the Western countries.Relatively, a leader has cons and pros even within his own party. Any made judgment on these leaders depends on some factors such as their ideologicalorientation, strategic objectives, and adopted tactics for the fulfillment of thoseobjectives. In addition to ideological leaders, there are national and ethnic leaderswho are judged by their extent of success in maintaining and safeguarding nationalinterests, power of resistance against the invasion of invaders, and determination to preserve national sovereignty. Such leaders like Alexander the Great and manyothers are subject to different and even paradoxical judgments though many believe that personal traits and genius of leaders as well as their social support mayguarantee their success.Except for some ideological and cultic groups, hegemonic leadership is hardlysubmitted to in today's world. The above comments on the status of historicalleaders hold true for ideological and cultic leaders as well; however, their  paradoxical nature and activities put a stop to coming upon an accurate judgmenton them. Of the most paradoxically active cultic leaders in our modern world isMasoud Rajavi who leads the globally blacklisted terrorist Mojahedin-e Khalqwith its own proponent and opponents. He is a self-appointed leader who secured agodlike position for himself, a status nobody has permission to question and whichis claimed to be devoid of any strategic, political, and ideological fault. However,his critics believe that he has been responsible for numerous deviations andchallenges MKO has met. A passing look at his past career and the role he has played in different organizational phases may give us a better and deeper understanding of his true nature.
