‘The Kite Runner’ (2006) shows the people of Afghanistan, this country seems to be an internal disease, or it may be an external invasion. It shows us how the Afghans who arrived in the United States survived hard work and maintained their cultural status in the multiculturalism. If he had received some education in the United States and learned to integrate with the life of a typical American, he managed to get out of this predicament. This novel allows readers to understand multiculturalism from several viewpoints adopted in the course of this chapter. People have seen how various spaces on the surface of the earth are designated for different cultures. Only when a kite is flying in the sky can it not be affected by cultural and ethnic barriers. One of Hosseini’s great insights in "The Kite Runner" and "A thousand Splendid Suns" and the relationship between male and female characters in Afghan society Imbalance is related. Men and women complete human life together and no gender contribution will lead to demonic survival, just like what is happening in this country. In Afghanistan, women are nothing but a tool for giving birth and providing support for men. They are not in the country’s decision-making or administrative institutions. In theory, multiculturalism strives for the respect and human rights of everyone. In this case, men and women should enjoy some kind of equality. Therefore, the novel uses Afghanistan as an antonym of the American multicultural society.
