The woman who won worldwide fame as the “green-eyed Afghan” on National Geographic magazine’s cover has been arrested in Pakistan for buying fake identification documents.
The arrest Wednesday of the woman, Sharbat Gula, came as the Pakistani authorities are cracking down on Afghans with illegal national identity cards, as part of their United Nations-approved policy of returning bogus refugees to their homeland.
Gula was detained at her “home” in the northwestern city of Peshawar after more than a year of investigation.
Shahid Ilyas, the assistant director of Pakistan’s Federal Investigation Authority said, “We raided the house and picked her up.”
“It took us a while to collect all the evidence against her, and the officials involved in helping her and her two sons get Pakistani national identity cards.”
He added, “We have the evidence now, and we are going to go for prosecution.”
The Pakistani authorities said Gula had illegally obtained a Pakistani identity card in 1988 and a computerized identity card in 2014, while retaining her Afghan passport, which she used in 2014 to travel to Saudi Arabia for the hajj pilgrimage.
She faces up to 14 years in prison and a fine of US$3,000 to US$5,000 if she is convicted, according to Pakistan’s Dawn newspaper.
The Pakistani authorities have revoked or blocked thousands of national identity cards illegally obtained by foreigners.
It is estimated that some three million Afghans are living in Pakistan, half of whom are unregistered. Since 2009, that country’s government has been threatening to physically expel them all, and has set a cutoff date in March 2017, by which time those who have not left voluntarily will be forcibly deported.
The Dawn newspaper added that the main factor driving the accelerated process is the doubling of cash grants by the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) for voluntary returnees from $200 to $400 per individual, and a Pakistani government incentive of free wheat for the relocated camps for three years.
The fact that the UNHCR is involved with a program to return Afghans to their home country from Pakistan, proves once again that the entire “asylum” invasion of Europe is a hoax, and is merely being used as a pretext by nonwhites to parasite off the Europeans’ welfare system.
