SRINAGAR: A family from north Kashmir’s Baramulla district on Thursday made a fervent appeal to its militant son to shun violence and return home for the sake of his widowed mother and siblings.
Nasir Amin Darzi, 25, son of late Mohammad Amin Darzi of Jamia mohalla, old town, Baramulla had left home on December 2 to attend a court hearing in Srinagar. He didn’t return ever since.
“He was framed in a false case by police a long ago in year 2008. He along with his friends had visited Nishat and some boys there had set ablaze a gate. My son was watching it as he was in Srinagar in connection with the court hearing, “ Nasir’s mother Masooda told media persons at press enclave here. She had descended all the way from Baramulla to make appeal to her son to return home.
After Nasir went missing, a picture of him holding an AK-47 went viral on social media in the late evening. And police raided their home at around 12 am to confirm whether the picture was clicked at his home or somewhere else.
“We lodged a complaint in Police Station Baramulla. They told us to make an appeal at our own and they’ll do whatever could be possible for them,” she added.
Sonober Amin, who identified herself as younger sister of Nasir, narrated that their family had to face a lot of hardships after their father, a tailor by profession, died in 1995.
“He (Nasir) was a painter and was doing his job well. Our family is shattered. I appeal him, wherever he is, to come back home. Don’t leave us like this”, she said as tears rolled down her cheeks.
In a very low note, Nasir’s grandfather told that Nasir was the lone bread earner of their family. His widow mother had also uploaded an emotional video on social media appealing her son to return home. His younger sister is unmarried and his youngest brother is studying in college.
