An Afghan Soldier talks with Afghan children during a dismounted patrol, Kandahar, 2010. The Afghan National Army traces its roots to the early 18th-century when the Hotak dynasty was established in Kandahar followed by Ahmad Shah Durrani's rise to power. It was reorganized in 1880 during Emir Abdur Rahman Khan's reign.

Mīrwais Khān Hotak (Pashto: مير ويس خان هوتک‎), also known as Shāh Mirwais Ghiljī(Pashto: شاه ميرويس غلجي‎) (1673 – November 1715), was an influential tribal chief of the Ghilji Pashtuns from Kandahar, Afghanistan, who founded the Hotak dynasty that existed from 1709 to 1738. After revolting and killing the Safavid Persiang governor over the region, Gurgin Khan in April 1709, he declared the Loy Kandahar ("Greater Kandahar") region in what is now southern Afghanistan independent. He is widely known as Mīrwais Nīkə (ميرويس نيکه) or Mīrwais Bābā (ميرويس بابا, "Mirwais the father") in the Pashto language.

Bāyazīd Khān (Pashto: بايزيد خان‎), also known as Pīr Rōshān or Pīr Rōkhān (Pashto: پیر روښان‎, "the enlightened Pir"; Persian: پیر روشن‎‎) (1525 – 1581/1585),[2] was a Pashtun"warrior-poet", Sufi master, and freedom fighter from the Ormur tribe of Waziristan. Pir Roshan wrote mostly in Pashto, but also in Persian and Arabic, while his first language was Ormuri. Pir Roshan is known for founding the 16th-century Roshaniyya movement which gained many followers in the Pashtun region. Pir Roshan wrote the Pashto book Khayr al-Bayān to present his philosophical ideas.

Khushāl Khān Khattak (1613 – 25 February 1689; Pashto: خوشحال خان خټک‎ Khʷushḥāl Khān Khaṭṭak), also called Khushāl Bābā(Pashto: خوشحال بابا‎), was a Pashtun "warrior-poet", chief, and freedom fighter from the Khattak tribe of the Pashtuns.[2] Khushal preached the union of all Pashtuns, and encouraged revolt against the Mughal Empire, promoting Pashtun nationalism through poetry. Khushal was the first Afghan mentor who presents his theories for the unity of the Pashtun tribes against foreign forces and the creation of a nation-state. Khushal wrote many works in Pashto but also a few in Persian. Khushal is considered the "father of Pashto literature" and the national poet of Afghanistan.

If we (Afghans) stand strong together, United, like in the past, no power on earth can defeat us and it has been proven in the past. On this day in 1842, the #British  troops were destroyed and defeated on #Afghan  soil.
