AIM is an alliance of Madheshi people, activists, parties and various organisations working for establishing an independent and sovereign Madhesh. In the same way as Gandhi and Mandela fought for the independence of their countries and finally liberated them, it aims to achieve independence through peaceful and non-violent means. It demands an end to the Nepali colonisation in Madhesh, an end to racism, slavery and discrimination imposed on Madheshis. It aims to institutionalise a democratic and egalitarian system in a sovereign Madhesh.
