Marjan, the much loved Iranian singer, who recently died at the age of 71 years in the U.S., has attracted condolences from throughout Iran. To begin with, celebrities who didn’t realize that Marjan supported the MEK have since doubted their response.
The Keyham daily, which actively supports the views of the Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, has been focusing its efforts to force celebrities inside Iran to publicly criticize and condemn the (PMO / MEK Iran). They even compiled a publication of a fake MEK’s “Mojahed” newspaper. This was done partly to dissuade any of Marjan’s fans from involving themselves with her death.

When the news of Marjan’s death was first announced, singers, actors, and actresses who had performed in movies before the 1979 revolution, members of the [PMOI / MEK], and many Iranian celebrities, sent condolences via social media. However, when the fake publication appeared all of a sudden, celebrities tried to distance themselves from the MEK. Following this support for Marjan, the MOIS uploaded a fake publication of the MEK’s newspaper on June 8th, aimed at dissuading anyone from supporting Marjan, but rather they should condemn the existence of MEK in Iran.

Last Saturday, members of the Iranian American community and MEK supporters met up in Los Angeles for Marjan’s funeral and bid their last farewells. At the same time, a message from the Iranian opposition President-elect, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, who is head of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), was also delivered to the ceremony. Marjan was none other than a symbol of rebellion against the tyranny of the mullahs in Iran. Marjan’s songs acted as weapons opposing the regime.
