Are you sure this question pertains to Chapters 4-7?

I think this question actually pairs up with Chapter Ten of the text when Baba and Amir are leaving the country. Chapter Ten details the uncertainty of life in Afghanistan.... neighbors turning against neighbors, the unexplained murders of people Amir was familiar with.... the accordian player from his birthday party murdered and found on the side of the road. We learn that rafiqs had split Kabul into those who informed and those who didn't. People didn't talk, curfew was law, and complaining led to death. Even children were used as informers.... people couldn't eve speak freely in their homes because their children had been indoctrinated.
