Group is a non-governmental organization that helps minority groups and indigenous groups receive the rights they deserve and work in over 60 countries to help achieve their goal. They have been doing this for over 40 years. They share detailed information about about the history, the culture, and current issues about each particular group. Hazaras are a minority group, one that has repeatedly been dehumanized and has constantly struggled for basic human rights. They have not only been targeted throughout history by stronger forces, particularly by the Taliban in 1893 and the 1990's, but have also been oppressed by the other tribes of Afghanistan. Throughout all of this, the population has decreased significantly from 67% to around 9%. Hazaras are typically Shi’a Muslims, which is one of the reasons they are disliked by the Sunni Muslim community. Knowing about the history of the Hazaras emphasizes the cruelty that Hazaras in The Kite Runner face and adds a historical context to the story, one that I found helped me gain a better understanding of the novel.
