Assef and the other boys are asserting dominace over the boy they consider nothing more than a worthless Hazara. Their attempt to steal the kite was child's play, the rape was an act of dominance.... a way to make Hassan subservient. Assef was the only boy to rape Hassan..... the other two boys held him down.
