Regardless of Baba treating Hassan extremely well he still neglected telling him and Amir that they were brothers for decades. He took that secret to his grave, therefore taking apart of their identities. Baba kept that information to himself because he was selfish. If people found out that he had a child with a Hazara he would lose his power and diminish reputation. Baba apparently convinced himself that it was for Amir’s sake, but learning that about his brother would have only supported him. Knowing Hassan was his brother during Baba’s inconsistent affection would have reassured him about his value and stopped his confidence from plummeting which lead to him being easy to bully. It would have also affected Hassan greatly as Amir would have protected Hassan during the time he needed him the most. This effort in redeeming himself proved just how selfish Baba was, as that secret caused misery in his sons lives.
