People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran

This website provides a brief history of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI), its leadership, and political platform. The group was founded in 1965 to restore democracy and freedom to Iran.

The PMOI’s political foundation is derived from its own interpretation of Islam and believes it is the genuine message of Islam.  It is what makes the organization powerfully unique and beloved.

Being an existential threat to the ruling mullahs, the group has been a major target of propaganda attacks by the regime for more than thirty years.  Thus, much of the information available in the public domain about the PMOI is inaccurate.

All but one member of the PMOI’s top leadership was executed by the Shah’s secret police and the mullahs have murdered more than 120,000 members and supporters.  Despite these horrific losses, the organization remains strong, cohesive, and the most formidable opposition to Iran's extremist mullahs.

The PMOI supports regime change in Iran and the establishment of a modern, pluralist, secular, democratic government.
