In the name of God



The ruling clique handed over control of the government to the Taliban on August 15, 2021, as the culmination of a plot which they hatched along with the known circles of foreign collaborators. As a result, the republican system fell apart. This was a giant step backwards for Afghanistan, which turned into hell on earth for its people.

The Taliban takeover unleashed a new wave of targeted violence, domination by a single group and ethnic, religious and political purges. The country’s citizenry, especially women and girls, were deprived of their most basic rights. The constitution and other civil laws in force in the country were suspended. Instead, the Afghan people found their fate in the hands of the Taliban’s summary courts. Moreover, poverty, hunger, unemployment, closure of schools and universities for girls and bans on women from work and social activities, cruel torture, and rampant human rights violations torment the country’s citizens. Meanwhile, Afghanistan has in effect become a safe haven for terrorism and a gathering point for extremists. This poses a threat to Afghanistan and serious challenges for its neighbors, the region and the world.

The National Resistance Council for the Salvation of Afghanistan (henceforth NRC) believes that the people of Afghanistan and the world can save Afghanistan from this painful tragedy by creating a collective will and launching sincere political efforts before it is too late and all opportunities for political understanding are lost. This process can protect the lives and safety of the citizens of the countries of the region and the world from reliving the bitter experience of terrorist attacks emanating from Afghanistan.

The NRC is committed to bring an end to the current miserable situation, save the country, and restore sovereignty to the people under a new constitution. It aims to launch a new era in which Afghanistan will be stable, democratic, war and violence-free, pluralistic and tolerant. A plan to achieve this is outlined below. This plan has been prepared in consultation with a range of political groups and personalities.

It addresses the salvation of the country and the welfare of the population and protection of national interests. It provides for the participation of all parties in the future of the country, to achieve stability and sustainable development, and general prosperity. It provides for the restoration of Afghanistan’s positive international role and constructive relations with its neighbors. The NRC takes this opportunity to to extend a cordial invitation to all political parties, organizations and influential personalities, including academics, ulema, women, elders and youths, to unite under a single political umbrella and engage in a collective, coordinated struggle to save the country. It is our historic mission to strive side by side for the restoration of lasting peace and stability, guided by the national religion at this critical moment in the country’s history.
