This shows that he is highly unpopular with lawyers as he believes if they do not do their job properly they should be fined however lawyers are the only category which state that he is un-liked compared to the ‘whole people’.

But then again relatives from the bin ladens got acces to fly from USA back to Saudi Arabia. That sounds like a really odd idea from a policeman(in the documentary after the relatives flew back home), who wanted to investigate them and so on.

Towards the end of the Kite Runner has a lot of of irony, The first example is in chapter seven in the Kite runner and how Amir watches Hassan get rapped he does nothing to help his friend out. HOW DOES AMIR'S "WATCHING" REVEAL IRONY? The second example is near the end of story, when Amir goes back to pakistan and talks to Rahim Khan, Rahim Khan tells Amir all the things his father did not. He finds out that Hassan is his half brother. When Amir was going back to Kabul, he finds Assef the man who rapped His Best friend, He's see Sorhab Hassan child getting rapped too.
“ I reached across my seat, slung my arm around him, pulled him close.” This shows more of a brotherly connection between the two and shows the comforting and supportive side of Amir. Although notice he is only comforting him in a dark area.

This shows us the struggles of Amir of how far he is supposed to cross in the Social Classes and Hierarchy between a slave and a
I wonder why he say outside the room and listened.
