In India, there are no restrictions imposed on serving humanity whether it is for indigenous people or for outsiders, every sort of people get equal treatment here. And this time ‘National Geographic’ fame Afghan girl Sharbat Gula is going to enjoy this privilege. She will receive a free of cost medical treatment for Hepatitis C in Bengaluru.

In a tweet expressing gratitude towards India, Afghanistan Ambassador to India, Dr Shaida Mohammad Abdali said, “The iconic Afghan Sharbat Gula will soon be in India for medical treatment free of cost – Thank you India for being a true friend!.” “Touched by Narayana hospital in Bengaluru offering Gula free of cost treatment and hospitality,” he said in an another tweet.

Sharbat Gula, earlier gained fame by a becoming ‘a beautiful eyed refugee girl of Afghanistan’ and got cover space at National Geographic magazine and recently hit the headline for the falsifying document while staying in Pakistan. As Pakistan, which is passing through a tough time with India, decided to deport her back to Afghanistan, India has opened the gates for her. It may also fuel more tension in relations with the neighbour country.

Pakistan has been criticised for deporting Gula. She pleaded guilty to all charges against her and was sentenced to 15 days in jail and a fine of Rs 1,10,000 (Pakistani currency) by a special anti-corruption and immigration court.
