Transcript of Ethnic Discrimination- The Bells of Notre Dame and Kite Runner

ft. The Bells of Notre Dame The Kite Runner Lyrics Morning in Paris, the city awakes
To the bells of Notre Dame
The fisherman fishes,
the bakerman bakes
To the bells of Notre Dame
To the big bells as loud as the thunder
To the little bells soft as a psalm
And some say the soul of the city's
The toll of the bells
The bells of Notre Dame
But a trap had been laid for the gypsiesAnd they gazed up in fear and alarmAt a figure whose clutchesWere iron as much as the bells
Judge Claude Frollo longedTo purge the worldOf vice and sinAnd he saw corruptionEv'rywhereExcept within
Guard: You there, what are you hiding?
Frollo: Stolen goods, no doubt. Take them from her
Dies irae, dies illa (Day of wrath, that day)Solvet saeclum in favilla (Shall consume the world in ashes)Teste David cum sibylla (As prophesied by David and the sibyl)Quantus tremor est futurus (What
trembling is to be)Quando Judex est venturus (When the Judge is come)

Chorus:
Kyrie Eleison (Lord have mercy)
Frollo:
This is an unholy deamon.
I'm sending it back to hell, where it belongs.
Archdeacon: See there the innocent blood you have spiltOn the steps of Notre Dame
Frollo: I am guiltless. She ran, I pursued.
Archdeacon: Now you would add this child's blood to your guiltOn the steps of Notre Dame
You can lie to yourself and your minionsYou can claim that you haven't a qualmBut you never can run fromNor hide what you've done from the eyesThe very eyes of Notre Dame
similar to kites in symbolism Psalm, religious vocabulary, a religious hymn
Continous religious undertone
Bells of notre dame- the bells of our lady
Symbolism for the eyes of god
Simile to iron clad rule- Taliban Taliban, religious persecution for the sake of religion
Frollo = Assef
Common attitude compared to Hazara, in the form of dialogue Religious language, spoken in Latin
He sees himself as the judge
Continuous the religious undertone
The chorus is thoroughly religious Pashtun stance of sending Hazara’s back to hazarajat Repetition of the verse draws emphasis to the clause .. of notre dame,
Frollo cannot escape the watchful eye of god
The ArchDeacon Corresponds to Baba’s distaste of "self righteous monkeys"
The eyes of Notre Dame = the Kites
with eyes And Frollo gave the child a cruel nameA name that means half-formed, QuasimodoNow here is a riddle to guess if you can
Who is the monster and who is the man?
Is the one of a cleft lip the evil one? The ugly one? Or those who persecute outcasts.
