Shadab Fatima, Tarique, Rafique Ahmed Lakhan, Zulfiqar Ali Chachar, Benazir Larik.

Abstract
Homosexuality is a complex phenomenon that is controversial and a taboo to discuss globally and in Afghanistan specifically. The present study aims to analyze the novel The Kite Runner by Khalid Hosseini critically, to uncover the sexual realities and motives of Aseef who is a classic bully in the novel. The present paper intends to unveil homosexuality in Afghanistan among young generation which is fundamentally treated as a shame topic to talk. This paper gives reasons for Aseefís oppressed homosexual feelings and sentiments which enables him to keep his racial superiority by examining the rape scene analytically. The paper unsnarls Aseefís homosexual desires as a youth and later his sexual advancements and assaults being a Taliban Leader, on young kids in an orphanage. The actions of the characters of the novel are investigated critically to justify that Afghani characters in the story are showing their willing ignorance towards Homosexuality. The study also concludes homosexuality as a strong desire to maintain racial superiority over the males and young boys of hazara community.

Key words: homosexuality, Khalid Hosseini, The Kite Runner, rape and ignorance.
