Questions of nationality[edit]

she is an american artist

every thing here is wrong!!!!


BORN 1963 not 1973!!!! she had nothing to do with iranian art!!! who is the editor of this artikel???

how is the writer of this biography?

it is not correct!!!
I found the above unsigned comments while categorizing the List of Iranian women. While the argument that she may be of Persian descent could be used, she is certainly Afghani. Sidatio 15:31, 8 August 2007 (UTC)

Nationality[edit]

I don't know what particular cultural/political issues surround the Afghan v Tajik debate, and would appreciate if the IP address that keeps replacing Afghan with Tajik would explain here. All the online information I can find about the artist describes her as Afghan, Afghanistani and/or being born in and partly residing in Afghanistan. So, her nationality is Afghan/Afghanistani (whichever is the conventional formulation). --Ethicoaestheticist (talk) 20:21, 8 June 2008 (UTC)

Some changes[edit]

She was born in 1973.

I don't understand why someone keeps changing her to tajik. If it comes down to ethnicity within Afghanistan then the person who keeps changing it is rather petty! Besides she is of mixed ethnicity within Afghanistan. This does not make her less Afghan. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Tincocoon (talkcontribs) 04:27, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

Factual accuracy review (June 2009)[edit]

I have reviewed the article beacuse it was tagged for a factual accuracy dispute and made the following changes, based on the references linked here:

  • "Tajik ethnicity" is not mentioned in sources, removed
  • "Lives in the United States of America" is contradicted by artist's bio on own Website. Removed.

The notable exhibitions and awards are sourced. No other factual discrepancies are apparent. The tag has been removed. Please respect the policies and do not add unreferenced material to this biography of a living person. Enki H. (talk) 16:44, 15 June 2009 (UTC)
