Majid Sharif-Vaghefi who was a leading member of the Mujahedin

In order to “raise his political consciousness”, he was given the chance to choose between a move to the MEK cell in Mashhad, leaving the country or to work in factories for a while. Sharif-Vaghefi pretended that he wanted to go to Mashhad, but instead moved some of the MEK arms and equipment to a new hiding place and tried to organize the part of the MEK that resisted the ideology change.
