Rahim Khan does keep--and later reveal--some important secrets during the course of The Kite Runner. They include:
- BABA & SANAUBAR. It is actually Baba who impregnates Sanaubar, not Ali.
- BABA & HASSAN. Consequently, Baba is actually the father of Hassan, not Ali.
- HASSAN & AMIR. And further, Hassan and Amir are actually half-brothers.
- HASSAN'S RETURN TO BABA'S HOME. Amir first finds out from Rahim that Hassan has returned to live in Ali's old hut at Baba's home.
- HASSAN'S DEATH. It is Rahim who reveals to Amir that Hassan has been murdered by the Taliban.
- SOHRAB. Rahim also reveals (through Hassan's letters) that Hassan has a son, and that he is still living in Afghanistan.
