NADRA Continues To Issue NICs On Fake Documents







Corruption is so much deeply rooted in Pakistani society that bribery or any type of misappropriation are taken as one's right not to regret upon. Do the corrupt people specially in NADRA office not know that issuing NIC to other nationals, particularly. will bring how much drastic consequences. Taking from issuance of passport and drug smuggling to human trafficking and terrorist activities are the results of issuance of NICs to non-Pakistanis. The defamation for Pakistan is additional curse for this corruption. The latest example of NADRA's as well as those corrupt people who verified the fake documents is the issuance of Computerised National Identity Cards (CNICs) by NADRA officials in Peshawar to Afghani woman Sharbat Bibi and two men on fake documents. NADRA Hayatabad (Peshawar) office issued three CNICs on a single day to 46-year-old Afghani woman Sharbat Bibi, wife of Rehmat Gul and her two sons Rauf Khan and Wali Khan in violation of rules and regulations. How easily they got CNICs whereas Pakistanis are having several rounds and hundred and one documents to be produced after which they are issued cards.
Though NADRA has suspended four officials who issued CNICs to National Geographic fame girl, but only suspension and discharging them from service is not enough, because documents have to be verified and stamped by grade 17 gazetted officer. There is a chain of culprits and all need to be brought to light and sentenced.
(Do they look like brothers, as Sharbat Bibi claims to be her sons)? However, it is said that NADRA has blocked the CNICs of Sharbat Bibi and two men said to be her sons). In 1984, Sharbat Bibi moved to Peshawar along with her 'two sons' and since then she has been residing in Nasir Bagh camp established for Afghan refugees. Earlier reports had said that Sharbat had three daughters. This is in contrast with the information on NADRA form which maintains that she had two sons.
(Sharbat as pictured on her NADRA form) They may or may not be her sons, as ther is common practice among Afghan refugees whereby they list the names of non-relatives as their children to obtain documents. In her CNIC form filed on April 17, 2014, 'Afghan girl' listed herself to be born in Peshawar on Jan 1, 1969, residing at Talab Road Nauthia Qadeem, Mohalla Mast Gul, Peshawar. Sharbat Bibi became famously known as "Afghan Girl" when National photographer Steve McCurry captured her photograph at Nasir Bagh refugee camp situated on the edge of Peshawar in 1984 and identified her as 'Sharbat Gula'. She gained worldwide recognition when her photo was featured on the cover of June 1985 issue of National Geographic Magazine at a time when she was approximately 12 years old. The photo has been linked with Leonardo Da Vinci's Mona Lisa. National Geographic also made a short documentary on her life and dubbed her as "Mona Lisa of Afghan War". She remained anonymous for years after her first photo made her icon around the world and until she was discovered by National geographic in 2002. After Sharbat got permission from family to meet the person who photographed her nearly 17 years ago, McCurry knew immediately even after so many years that he has found her again. He said her eyes are as haunting now as they were then.
