Former prime minister Stephen Harper is taking criticism for appearing at a Paris event sponsored by MEK, an Iranian dissident group that Harper's own government considered a terrorist organization as recently as 2012.

"Thank you for your long battle for a free and democratic Iran," Harper told a crowd at the Free Iran rally in Paris on Saturday.

The event was organized by the National Council of Resistance of Iran, a group founded by Mojahedin-e Khalq (MEK), a well-funded Paris-based group devoted to the overthrow of the current Iranian regime.
