Afghan Girl Revealed…Iris patterns are even more individual than fingerprints. So the Geographic turned to the inventor of automatic iris recognition, John Daugman, a professor of computer science at England’s University of Cambridge. His biometric technique uses mathematical calculations, and the numbers Daugman got left no question in his mind that the haunted eyes of the young Afghan refugee and the eyes of the adult Sharbat Gula belong to the same person.

Medicine and Afghan Girl!! Is Sharbat Gula without question the famous “Afghan girl”? Though she remembers being photographed in the school tent of her refugee camp, and her resemblance to the girl in McCurry’s photo is apparent, the Geographic sought expert opinion. In Pakistan, ophthalmologist Mustafa Iqbal examined Sharbat, with her husband at her side. Iqbal felt “100 percent certain” that her iris patterns and eye freckles matched those in McCurry’s photo. A scar on the right side of her nose was another distinguishing mark. Photograph by Steve McCurry.

Afghan Girl Revealed: Seventeen years after she stared out from the cover of National Geographic, a former Afghan refugee comes face-to-face with the world once more. The focus of Sharbat Gula’s life is her husband, Rahmat Gul, and their daughters. She remembers her wedding day, when she was perhaps 16, as a happy one—possibly, her older brother told the Geographic team, the only happy day of her life. She became an orphan and refugee of war at about age six. Soviet bombing killed her parents, and her grandmother led her and her brother and sisters on foot, in winter, to Pakistan, where they lived in various camps. Here Sharbat holds Zahida, age 3, and her husband holds one-year-old Alia. Their oldest, Robina, is 13. A fourth daughter died in infancy. Sharbat says she hopes that her girls will get the education she was never able to complete. Photograph by Steve McCurry

به جان شکیلا تجاوز صورت گرفته و فیری هم که شده از پشت سر بوده، دوسیه وی از طرف طب عدلی به سارنوالی فرستاده شده ، متاسفانه سارنوالی یکی ازدوستان اقای واحدی بهشتی است که در این قسمت توجه نکرده.
تم الاعتداء على شاكيلا جنسياً، والرصاصة أطلقت عليها من الخلف - مما يدل علي أنها لم تنتحر- ؛ خبراء الطب الشرعي أرسلوا القضية إلي النائب العام؛ لسوء الحظ، النائب العام أحد أصدقاء واحيدي بيهيتشي؛ ومن ثم لم ينظر في القضية.
