When you tell a lie, you steal someone's right to the truth. When you cheat, you steal the right to fairness [...] there is no act more wretched than stealing’” (Hosseini .15), this example shows that Baba did just this, he stole Hassan’s right to the truth, his right to know about his real father and Amir’s right to know that Hassan was his brother. When readers realize this, many will look down upon Baba, but Baba always taught Amir that theft was the worst sin so that Amir wouldn't make the same mistakes.
