? Discrimination is still an issue in states all over the universe.
including Canada. Peoples still acquire discriminated in our society today for the manner they look. talk and their spiritual positions. Discrimination is shown in The Kite Runner.
written by Khaled Hosseini and The Chrysalids. written by John Wyndham. Hassan. one of the chief characters of The Kite Runner is treated like an animate being for the manner he looks and his spiritual positions. In The Chrysalids. the chief character David Storm is considered a “mutant” for being able to pass on with his head to other people with the same power.
Once the people of Waknuk found out he was a mutation. they turned on him. Peoples can larn from these tragic events that happened to Hassan and Davis Storm.
Both Novels show how favoritism can take to decease. war and depression. Discrimination can take to decease. In the novel The Kite Runner a adult male named Hassan was murdered in the center of the street. along with his married woman for being Hazara. The Taliban’s murdered Hassan because they thought he was a homesteader life in Amir’s house. He told him he was their servant and was taking attention of the house while they were gone.
As Rahim Khan is stating the narrative of Hassan to Amir he explains that “The Taliban’s said he was a prevaricator and a stealer like all the Hazara’s and ordered him to acquire his household out of the house by sundown” ( Hosseini. 230 ) . Rahim Khan is connoting that Hassan didn’t do anything incorrect. he was merely looking after the house for a friend. The Taliban’s think the Hazara people are prevaricators and stealers so they didn’t believe him. When they told him to acquire himself and his household out by sunset he argued with them.
they shot him in the center of the street while people were watching.His married woman. witnessing what happened.
ran out into the street and the Taliban’s shot her to. Both dead. go forthing their boy to be sent to an orphanhood. Hassan shouldn’t have been murdered for such a mindless thing like that ; he was treated like rubbish merely for his spiritual positions and the manner he looked. Similar to The Kite Runner the favoritism in The Chrysalids besides leads to decease. The best friend of David Storm. Sophie.
is murdered by the people of Waknuk for no other ground so that she was a mutation.The people of Waknuk were runing the mutations. Sophie has to fundamentally fend for her ego and seek to acquire off from the Waknuk people. “An pointer pierced through her upper arm. but she held on. with it lodged at that place. Then another took her in the dorsum of the cervix.
She dropped in mid-stride. and her organic structure slid along in the dust…” ( Wyndham. 187 ) is how the Waknuk people murdered her. These people murdered an guiltless miss for holding 6 toes on each pes.
This goes to demo how much hatred is built up in these people.Discrimination has been and still causes war between states and people. this happens in both The Kite Runner and The Chrysalids. When the Taliban’s decided to take over Afghanistan. favoritism was everyplace. The Taliban’s thought they were better so everyone else in the state. This caused war in Afghanistan.
The Taliban’s discriminated everyone except for them self’s. Assef joined the Taliban’s because he hated Hazara people. Assef tells Amir that “Afghanistan is like a beautiful sign of the zodiac littered with refuse.
and person has to take out the garbage” ( Hosseini. 298 ) .Assef is connoting that Afghanistan is a fantastic and beautiful topographic point with “terrible” people like Hazara’s and the Taliban’s are here to take out the rubbish. The Taliban’s are seeking to take over Afghanistan killing anyone who gets in their manner ; they truly hate the Hazara people. They think that the Hazara’s are thief’s and prevaricators and don’t deserve to populate in the same state as the all mighty Taliban people. So the Taliban’s starts a war in Afghanistan. All because they think they are better so everyone else and that who of all time isn’t a Taliban.
is evil and deserves to decease.Something similar happens with the mutations and the people of Waknuk in The Chrysalids. The people of Waknuk think all mutations should be killed. The small town people find out approximately David Storm’s mutant powers along with all the other mutations. The people of Waknuk declare that the mutations are outlaws. David Storm and the remainder of his mutant friends are forced to fly from the small town.
where the people of Waknuk. including David’s ain male parent. prosecute them. The villagers feel that “ [ A ] ny animal that shall look to be human. but is non formed therefore is non human. It is neither adult male nor adult female.
It is blasphemy against the true Image of God. and hateful in the sight of God” ( Wyndham. 13 ) . This shows how these small town people seem to believe that these “mutants” are a menace to their small town. They think that they need to take action. so they try to kill them. doing a war between the mutations and the people of Waknuk. Discrimination can besides take to depression.
After Assef rapes Hassan for being Hazara. Hassan becomes really down and stops playing with Amir and ne’er comes out of his room. Amir starts to acquire really disquieted about Hassan. everyone in the house thinks Hassan is merely ill.Amir asks Ali “Would Hassan be able to play today? ” ( Hosseini. 85 ) .
Ali replies with “Lately. it seems all he wants to make is kip. He does his chores- I see that- but so he merely wants to creep under his blanket” ( Hosseini. 85 ) . Showing how down Hassan is after being raped. Before the incident Hassan and Amir would play every twenty-four hours. Hassan was so happy before. It goes to demo how favoritism can truly take to depression.
He was raped because he didn’t want to give Assef his kite. So he was “punished” for non listening to Assef.If it had been Amir. it wouldn’t have happened because Amir is a Pashtun. the same faith as Assef. The Chrysalids besides shows how favoritism can take to depression. David Storm finds other people who have the same power as him ; they all decide to maintain this power a secret so they don’t acquire killed. One of the mutations named Anne wants to get married a “normal person” .
The group thinks that if she were to get married this adult male. she would state him about them. Anne ends up get marrieding him but unhappily a hebdomad subsequently he is found dead in the wood. Anne goes through a deep depression and finally kills herself.
”Anne’s self-destruction was a calamity. but no one saw any enigma about it. A immature married woman. pregnant with her first kid. thrown off her mental balance by the daze of fring her hubby in such fortunes ; it was a deplorable consequence. but understandable” ( Wyndham. 93 ) . This guiltless adult male was murdered by one of the mutations because if she had told him.
he would hold told the remainder of the people in the small town. doing the mutations to be murdered. If the towns people didn’t detest the mutations every bit much as they did the mutations ne’er would hold had to kill an guiltless adult male. but they did it for endurance.These Village people of Waknuk think that these “mutants” are a menace. they are so frightened of them that they think they must kill them.
Anne would still be alive if they people of Waknuk were different. so would her hubby. Death. war and depression were all demonstrated because of favoritism in both novels. Discrimination leads to decease in both novels.
Hassan is killed for being a Hazara and David’s best friend Sophie is killed for being a mutation. Discrimination besides leads to war in both novels. The Talibans started a war in Afghanistan because they thought that they were better so everyone else.The people of Waknuk thought that the mutations were a menace to their small town so they tried to kill them. doing a war between the two. Depression is besides shown because of favoritism.
After Hassan was raped for being a Hazara he stopped playing with Amir and ne’er wanted to go forth his room. Anne. a mutation. went threw deep depression after her hubby was murdered and she finally committed self-destruction while she was pregnant.
Peoples need to halt handling people different for the manner they look. the manner they talk. etc. If favoritism ceased in this universe.
there would non be as many jobs as there is today.
