Envoy: MKO after fueling mistrust in Iran
Tehran, Iran's Ambassador to UK Hamid Baeidinejad said on Monday the the outlawed Mujahideen Khalq Organization (MKO) tries to fuel mistrust among Iranian people to attain its sinister goals.
Baeidinejad referred to the article issued at 'The American Conservative' Magazine's report on fake MKO journalists, saying these fake people try to imply that Iranian people have lost their trust to their officials as well as the future of the country.
After media critics' attempts to reveal the fabricated identity of a person named 'Heshmat Alavi' who writes articles for various American media especially for 'Forbes', Twitter has suspended his account but investigations show that he account is controlled by MKO from Albania, Hamid Baeidinejad said in a Twitter and Telegram message.
MKO is to orchestrate its military operation under the guise of Social Media Warfare and thousands of its forces are releasing thousands of tweets and other contents in social media by using media facilities provided by US and Zionist regime, he said.
They are to topple the government through disappointing projects, he said.
One of their policies is to attack officials' accounts in social media through the most intense slanders and ugly words, trying to imply that people have no trust on their officials and the future of Iran, Baeidinejad said.
The American Conservative Magazine reported that Heshmat Alavi is the fake mouthpiece of MKO.
"There's a problem, though: Heshmat Alavi appears not to exist. Alavi's persona is a propaganda operation run by the Iranian opposition group MKO, US media quoted two sources as saying.
