The Kite Runner

Chapter 15-20

Was it wrong of Baba, Ali, and Rahim to keep Hassan's true identity a secret? Do you feel family honour is enough justification for maintaining this secret? How mught their lives have been different if the truth had been told earlier?

This is such a complex question for this short answer forum. Superficially, it was wrong to keep this information a secret. We must however consider that the rest of the world does not necessarily share our Western culture and value systems. There are many cultural reasons that Baba had for withholding this information from Amir and Hassan.
