Honest request to all the boys who have picked up arms.
Lashkar-e-Taiba's recent-recruit Majid Khan (22), who was fast turning into its poster boy online, surrendered before the Army's 1 Rashtriya Rifles and the police on Thursday evening.
"Those youths who have strayed and have committed no crime are welcome to come back and no action will be taken against them". On Tuesday, his father, 59-year-old Irshad Ahmad Khan, complained of pain in the chest and was admitted to the hospital for treatment.
A lone child of his family, the emotional online message of Khan's ailing mother went viral, where she asked him to join the family. Inspector General of Police Munir Khan said Majid Khan had earlier contacted his family to say that he wanted to come back.
"His parents' efforts bore fruit and he decided on his own to shun violence and pursue his academics and passion for football. We know that it is hard, but we are happy with the boys returning to home rather than getting needlessly and tragically killed", a police source said.

"He (Majid) has become a militant and our endeavour will be that he comes back".
Army and police, however, did not allow the media to talk to Majid, who was present at the press conference at victor force headquarters at Awantipora in Pulwama district on Friday afternoon. Today, Majid Khan a 20-year-old boy ace footballer from Anantnag surrendered himself.
Mehbooba said the choice to return homes for the young militants "is not easy one" because of the social stigma attached to "surrender". He was a famous footballer and social work volunteer before joining a militant group. Majid was previously working with an NGO Mother Helpage, a charity organisation, and had motivated almost 300-odd youth to work for the good of the people in south Kashmir.
Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti tweeted: "A mother's love prevailed".
In Majid's case, his close friend Yawar Nisar joining militancy in July and eventually getting killed a month later, inspired the footballer to join militant ranks. The security forces facilitated his return.
