I find this a sad bit of news.  I recently read (ok listened to on Audiobook from the library) “The Kite Runner”, and enjoyed it greatly (and “Thousand Splendid Suns” for that matter).  There is a pivotal moment in the book which could offend some muslim Afghani people, and the young stars of the film have been removed to a safe location. The moments in the book are certainly uncomfortable, but it’s sad that a young actor could be attacked for not actually doing, but just portraying something forbidden by certain factions of Islam.
