The mother of a militant, who recently joined militant ranks, has appealed her son to return home.
Sara Begum, a widow, and mother of Nawaz Ahmad Wagay appealed her son to return home.
Nawaz, a postgraduate in Urdu, joined Al Badar militant group on June 1.
“I am a widow and lost my husband to this protracted conflict. I don’t want to lose my son also,” Sara Begum said in her appeal.
She said her family has been devastated by Nawaz’s decision to join militancy. “He joined the militant ranks without realizing its consequences”.
Sara said she has been moving from pillar to post since the day her son went missing and announced joining Al-Badar by releasing a gun-wielding photograph on various social networking sites.
“I am helpless. I took a lot of pains to finance his studies,” she said adding, “I had high hopes on him that he will support me in my old age. I would be thankful to his associates if they let him return home”
Nawaz Ahmad Wagay son of Ghulam Qadir Wagay, a resident of Rebon village of Shopian district joined Albadar.
