GNMA

Grand National Movement of Afghanistan

 The Grand National Movement of Afghanistan (GNMA) began shortly after the September 11 attacks following the invasion of Afghanistan by the United States and Allied forces started a new chapter for Afghanistan, a country full of hope that is strategically located at the crossroad of civilizations. 

In June 2002, over 1600 delegates from all over Afghanistan attended an emergency Loya Jirga (Pashto for “grand assembly”) in Kabul. The goal of the assembly was to take the first steps towards creating a new government in Afghanistan by electing an interim government.

Though Mr. Karzai was the only candidate for the new government at that time, the Northern Alliance was in actual control of Kabul and the surrounding areas. The priority of the U.S. was to establish a democratic system based on a strong presidency, however, the plan was not based on the power of people but the power of the strongmen. Without having a large scale organized national movement, the potentiality of President Karzai being influenced and controlled by powerful men was immense.

As a first step, during those few short days of the Loya Jirga, we focused our efforts on working with younger, educated, patriotic, and democratic minded Loya Jirga members, to seed the idea of changing the Soviet style one-member candidate. We intended to transform the system of giving 100% of the votes to a single candidate, into a relatively democratic election system, wherein for the first time in the history of Afghanistan, there would be more candidates to choose from. In an effort to introduce this new system, we promoted Mr. Mahfooz Nedaii, who was the first secretary of the Loya Jirga and Mrs. Masooda Jalal, the first female candidate in the history of the country. The idea was not to defeat Mr. Karzai, who was not as well-known at the time, but to demonstrate a democratic process. To our surprise, our efforts had delivered some success in that the selected candidates by our young members had received 200 votes from a total of almost 1600. Our first attempt to start a movement with the nomination of two candidates by the people was short-lived, but proved there was hope.

In 2003, we made another attempt to work with President Karzai. We scheduled a meeting in Kabul with the president’s brother, Mr. Qayoum Karzai, where we revealed the plan of the National Movement and told him that we would give President Karzai full support and stand behind him giving him the true power of the people that he needed to govern the country the way it supposed to be governed and only being accountable to the people, but, unfortunately, Mr. Karzai derailed the process and put an end to it.

In 2009, on our last attempt, this time with people with more influence, among some were Kabul University’s high level academia as the lead, but the attempt was unsuccessful. However, one of the main reasons for failure were the people’s perception that the International community, especially the U.S., came to establish a long term presence in Afghanistan, which they were against.

In 2011, for the very first time, there were calls for all of the International forces to leave Afghanistan, which was a wakeup call. The Afghans soon came to the realization that the U.S. and its Allies were eventually going to withdraw their troops from Afghanistan, which is what started the formation of the Afghanistan National Movement (ANM).

In the last few years, a number of other movements have come into existence, including the Third Line National Movement, The Middle Line National Movement, The Movement to Save Afghanistan from Crisis, and The Movement of the Muslim People of Afghanistan.

The notion among the Afghan people in Afghanistan was: “no one alone can bring changes, and together we can create a movement that led us to success.” Soon after the first circles formed and it didn’t take long for them to unite together into a chain. During the 2014 presidential elections, while the ANM didn’t have its own candidate, it did, however, sign protocols with candidates, bringing over a million votes to their tickets

In the summer of 2019, ANM called on other movements to come together and form one grand movement. After several meetings in Kabul, the idea was accepted, but, because of the Covid-19 pandemic, it was put on hold. A year later, the idea became a reality and the Grand National Movement of Afghanistan (GNMA) was formed. An Executive Council was created by bylaws and then a President was elected. The first order of the Executive Council was to develop a roadmap for peace.

In 2021, the Grand National Movement of Afghanistan came together, for a common cause and under one leadership, and became a collective group of political parties, civil societies, social and cultural, youth and women organizations, tribal councils, religious and tribal leaders, academics, cultural, national, and other influential independent leaders.

In August 2021, less than a month before the fall Mr. Ghani’s government, during a Summit in Kabul, which was broadcasted life world-wide through a webinar, GNMA announced its official existence inside Afghanistan.  

Today, after the fall of Ghani’s government and the pullout of all US and foreign forces from Afghanistan, and the comeback of Taliban, the role of GNMA as the voice of the Afghan people is becoming into a center stage in helping Afghanistan to a peaceful and enduring stability, which is the first and the main condition for the country’s prosperity and for the people’s wellbeing and dignity. This is what the absolute majority of people in Afghanistan wants, and that what we are standing for.

No more wars, no more atrocities, no more oppression, no more exploitation, and no more falsely claiming in the name of the people by those that controlled the power in the country for 2 decades.

Let all those who were on the power realize their mistakes of the past, their dues to the people, and promise and take the oath to truly stand with the people without having any greed and cupidity for power sharing. Let them just be good citizens. And for those who are in power, just serve the people, understand your responsibility to the 40 million people of this country, who need jobs, food, education, healthcare, good governance, respect to their rights and development without which none of other mentioned tasks are possible. An independent, Islamic, developed country, where all citizens have equal rights.

Organizational Structure

Starting in 2019, for the first time in the Afghan history, throughout the entire geography of this heroic country, the largest concentration of national movements, each one, comprised of several political parties, hundreds of civil societies, religious, cultural and social organizations, tribal councils and thousands of independent religious and tribal elders and intellectuals, all came together and formed the Grand National Movement of Afghanistan, under one axis and under one Leadership Council

They realized that Afghanistan, at that moment, was in great crisis and in real danger of losing whatever positive achievements they had gained in the past two decades as well as the true existence of this nation as a united nation was under attack. This grassroots movement  and its leadership, serves as the voice of the Afghan people, and with the full support from the people all around the country was determined to bring Afghanistan out of the dangerous crisis and move it to the path of a unified nation and to a true Islamic democratic system of governance, ruled by the people and for the people, where each citizen has equal rights and responsibilities. We hold that every Afghan has been granted his or her rights by Great Allah, whose Grace secures the dignity, equality and liberty of every man, woman, and child. These rights are granted as a Covenant between the Almighty Creator and his creation. Every individual, every Afghan holds these rights, without exception. The ideals of the GNMA are engraved in the “Covenant” document of the movement, and its mission is written in the Intellectual Foundations and the Principles of Activities of the GNMA.

Mission and Vision

The Intellectual Foundations of the Principles of Activities of the Grand National Movement of Afghanistan.

Over the past two decades, the international community has helped Afghanistan in the area of governance, system-building, economy and the education of security forces to create a modern government that has risen from the will of the people to eliminate the grounds for returning to chaos and civil wars.

Unfortunately, due to the incompetence, mismanagement and abuse of the government officials as well as the misguided policies of the international community in this country, instead of systematization, reconstruction, and development, the economy became a mafia, the political system became expedient and useless day by day, coercion and oppression took the place of democracy and national participation, corruption raged to the point of overt looting, and expectations of international cooperation were diminished.

The Grand National Movement of Afghanistan is a union of movements, each in turn consisting of a range of political parties, ethnic councils, socio-cultural organizations, civil societies, women’s organizations, youth, common citizens, religious and ethnic elders are formed by national, scientific, cultural and other independent figures.

Today, after the fall of the old government and the control of the country by Taliban forces, several huge problems of the past, such as lawlessness, injustice in the form of the powerful people being all above the law, out of control corruption and plunder were quickly disappeared. But many other elements, such as extreme poverty and despair of the majority of the nation, new war drums by those that miserably failed the country in the past few decades, and newly created problems, including the lack of a qualified and all- inclusive functioning government, the shutdown of the majority of government institutions such as educational and healthcare systems, and others, are threatening the long-lasting peace and stability of the country. For this purpose, this movement presents its intellectual foundations and the foundations of its activities very intensively but specifically to its noble nation, below:

Islam

The Holy Religion of Islam — the religion of the people of Afghanistan has played a key role in the founding of civilization, human history and culture, individual and social life and the useful and valuable achievements of humanity. Our most fundamental human, spiritual and national values also come from Islam. Islam is and will be the guide to the actions and speech of this movement.

Islamic Democracy

For the Islamic world, a true democracy based on Islamic principles and values is the best system of governance in ending the autocratic, authoritarian and totalitarian systems of the world. it could prove its superiority by creating legitimate institutions serving the people and speedily advancing the county toward a wealthy, prosper, and a high human ethics society with great Islamic, national, and family values. This system can only be achieved through the establishment of a representative, responsible, serviceable and acceptable to the people government.

Rule of Law

With the slogan, “No one in the country is above the law,” the Grand National Movement of Afghanistan strongly stands for law, order, peace and security throughout the country with its global cohesion, Islamic, national and people centric forces, and gaining the support of the oppressed, suffering nation of Afghanistan.

Social Justice

We believe that one of the main causes of failures to create a healthy political system is the monopoly of power and injustice in contemporary and present history. We consider justice in the sense of providing equal opportunities for all citizens of Afghanistan as the main factor of material and spiritual growth and development of the country. The spirit of participation and convergence is only possible through the fair distribution of material and spiritual resources for all citizens of the country. It is only justice that provides the ground for a true people-centric Islamic country, the growth of the talents and capabilities of all citizens and enables national development and progress.

National Unity

Afghanistan is a land of different ethnicities, different languages and followers of different religions. With all of its diversity, people have experienced life together like the flowers of a lawn; they have always defended their national identity and collective values together. Therefore, we reject any claim for privilege, superiority and discrimination in the citizen system. Religious minorities are equal citizens of this region.

Independence

Independence and freedom are the inherent and natural rights given by Almighty Creator whose grace secures the dignity and liberty of all human beings be a man, woman, or a child. It is the rightful and rational desire of societies for sovereignty over their destinies. The people of Afghanistan have fought brilliantly for independence and freedom and have made countless sacrifices. We will stand together, to the last drop of our blood, in preserving the independence and defending every inch of our land. Relying on this principle, we want good relations and non-interference in each other’s affairs with the nations of the world, and we support any kind of de-escalation in the region and the world.

Peace

With the control of the country by Taliban, one of our main goals and objective that was to end the war and bloodshed and achieve permanent stability and peace that will bring about fundamental gains in advancing the country toward prosperity, development, self-sufficiency, was achieved. But this peaceful situation, as we can see, is very fragile and without Taliban fulfilling their promises in moderation, forming an all-inclusive government, where the GNMA as the voice of the people be the stakeholder, that could play a big assistance role in the future of a peaceful and stable and advance country, ensuring the rights of minorities and women, is not sustainable.

National Reconciliation

We consider the need for national reconciliation as a cure for the current and future turmoil of the country. Without forgiving each other and without apologizing to the Afghan people, the forces involved will not only fail to build mutual trust, but also resort to constant use of force to seek revenge and prevent their elimination. The persistence of this state will lead to more instability and destruction.

Policies and Practices

In the Political Arena

Our main goal is to assist in establishing a strong government system based on the separation of the three powers and with the independence of action, transparency, accountability, and legitimacy, based on the will of the nation and based on social justice, peace and lasting stability. The creation of a legitimate government that ensures genuine national participation and the selection of individuals based on commitment, merit, competence and expertise are the main principles of the governance in this movement, which is instrumental to the recognition of the government by the International Community.

In the Social Arena

Respect for human rights, as one of the main rights under Islam, observing and supporting political pluralism in governance, paying serious attention to strengthening civil society institutions, supporting freedom of expression, providing equal social services, giving priority to the development of deprived areas of the country, combating any superiority and privilege demands, support for minority rights, strengthening and the growth of the young generation, supporting the health of children and mothers, paying attention to the disabled and the elderly, war survivors and martyrs’ families, maintaining a healthy environment, including the elimination of illegal drugs used by population and its eradication in the country, and poverty alleviation are the main lines of our social policy.

In the Economic Arena

Renovation and reconstruction of economic infrastructure, extracting economic resources from the domination of certain groups, mining and rescuing it from the clutches of mafia groups, preventing smuggling of mines and its illegal trade, eradicating corruption, creating a market economy according to the needs of the country, job creation, construction of transportation highways, construction of water dams, mechanization of agriculture, growth of rural economy, growth of domestic and foreign trade, development and development of electricity, growth of tourism industry, access to dry transit routes and international marketing. There are important steps for domestic production that are followed by specific policies in each area.

In the Cultural Arena

General reforms in the educational infrastructure of the country, generalization of education through expansion of schools and madrassa, eradication of illiteracy through the launch of a vital literacy campaign, growth of Islamic and national culture based on rational and scientific policy, based on Islamic principles, optimal use of world cultural achievements, combating any anti-cultural actions, extensive use of modern educational technology in the growth of education, the development of national languages, the establishment of standard museums in the provinces, the establishment of writers ‘and artists’ unions, and the comprehensive growth of culture are among our priorities.

In the Foreign Arena

Based on the principles of Afghanistan as a non aligned country, establishing active and permanent diplomacy based on good relations with world governments based on national interests, and political balance, participating in prestigious political and economic institutions of the world to stabilize Afghanistan’s position in the large family of the international community, pursuing sensible policies, protecting the country’s highest interests, not interfering in each other’s internal affairs, and adhering to Afghanistan’s international obligations are important aspects of the movement’s foreign policy.

May Allah Grant Us Success
