The concept, content, and descent discussion is followed by privative and positive attitudes of the triple currents Historical historiography of Afghanistan (nationalist, leftist, and Islamist) the method has continued as such.  The research highlights that the impact of contemporary historiography on the political conditions and vitality of the Loya Jirga in legitimizing the political power and despite the critique of the ethnic origins affecting their functional nature, it has led the mentioned triple movements to consider it of significant importance.
