Early Life / Childhood
Dr. Jalili was born on 30 January 1974 (Afghan date: ۱۳۵۴) in a village located in Rodat district, Nangarhar. He is the son of Sayed Abdulrahman Jalili another professional doctor working in a small clinic in Balkh. Dr. Jalili went to a high-school located in Balkh named "Lesi Nowbahar-e-Balkh". He had the burden of supporting his family from a young age. Dr. Jalili lost his father at a young age and was put lots of pressure on to support a family of 7. During the Soviet Invasion of Afghanistan and the war against the Mujahideen, there was a lot of damage done and people went through a lot of misery, losing homes and family members. Out of now choice, Dr. Jalili had to move to Jalalabad and was in a financial crisis. Dr. Jalili had to work in order to make money to support his family. He has spent his life in the hard and dangerous times in Afghanistan and says that these experiences turned him "Hard as Steel".
Dr. Noorullah narrated in his autobiography that he had returned to Kabul with his family and rebuilt their father's home. He also mentioned he had to build bricks and had to work in hard labor in a poor financial condition while still continuing his education in a medical university. At a young age, he also worked in clinics in the Nuristan province of Afghanistan. His experiences in such conditions spawned several questions in his head on his living situation and the situation of his country. After creating some small companies, he started obtaining projects from USACE and various other projects from different sectors. His company was also a topic during an airstrike on one of his labor camps in 2007. 14 of his poor workers were killed during an airstrike during the night believed to have hit due to faulty intelligence. These events inspired him to travel to different provinces and create various services in his own country. In light of his childhood experiences and other events that happened, made him push for creating a country without war, a corrupt government and a country that promotes peace and brings joy to his people.
After the fall of the Taliban in the US-led Invasion of Afghanistan in 2001, there were many international forces and governments implemented in Afghanistan and many opportunities were available in the government but Dr. Noorullah Jalili did not proceed because of the major corruption at the time. His decision was to prevent himself from joining because he didn't want to be a part of a government with "power-greedy and money-thirsty leaders". Dr. Jalili has constructed a 5-year plan and has made himself a candidate in the 2019 Afghan Election in-order to prevent Afghanistan from corruption and transition the country from its state of poverty and hardships. Dr. Jalili has gone through many hard times and has gained experience on how to improve the nation of Afghanistan. He wants to serve his people and help the unprivileged by creating programmes that will bring the country out of its current situation. He is planning to lift up the country's name and make the nation joyful and impeded from misery and catastrophe. Many political figures have also had meetings with Dr. Jalili and have posted about his speeches on social media. They say that he is planning to make the young generation the authority and make them rise to the challenges. Dr. Jalili has chosen Khalil Roman as his first Vice President and Cheragh Ali Cheragh as his second Vice President. He has selected these figures because they have not been involved in any government and are innocent people that have also spent hard times in Afghanistan.
Dr. Jalili has mentioned in his speech while registering for the Presidential Elections that if he were to secure office then he would try and improve the deteriorating security and improve the national economy. He said that the people of Afghanistan are the ones that decide the future president of Afghanistan and they should use their votes responsibly and vote for someone that will take Afghanistan out of its current crisis. In an interview with Pajhwok Afghan News, he mentions the issues with the Afghanistan government and talks about serious issues. In his speech to his supporters when registering as a candidate he asked the Afghan People to support the IEC of Afghanistan.
Dr. Jalili is now resident in Kabul, Afghanistan with his family and is living in excellent living conditions. His company has expanded into many regions and cities such as Dubai. He has mentioned on his social media that he is running for president to serve his motherland and to serve his people. His net worth and revenue prove he is aiming to eliminate corruption and is aiming for the presidency in order to create a stable and secure government, not for the pay. Dr. Jalili is married and has 4 children according to his autobiography posted on his social media pages. He originates from a small village but is now in a wealthy living standard and no longer has the burden on him to do work. He believes that the younger generations should use "a pen, not a gun", a speech he has used greatly. His children are also continuing their education and he is promoting education instead of child labor.
