After Hassan's rape, Amir had issues of deep insecurities and self-loathing. Amir used to read to Hassan under a pomegranate tree. One day, Amir asks Hassan what he would do if he threw a pomegranate at him. Hassan says nothing. Amir throws them at Hassan to appease his own pain and hatred of himself. Amir wants Hassan to get angry with him.
