Sin in The Kite Runner
In “The Kite Runner,” by Khaled Hosseini, Baba, the main character, gives his version of the sin to his son Amir, in a tone of warning and caution, “That there is only one sin. And that is theft….When you tell a lie, you steal someone’s right to tell truth.” In substance, a sin is an act or behavior that causes pain to one ’s self or others. The author elaborates the concept of sin with detailed explanations. From the multi-dimensional scope of sin, he picks up three types of sins, murder, lust, and greed and argues about their co-relation to the universal sin of theft.
