Take the option of retirement, litigation takes time. Plus it will add the perks of pension and other retirement benefits. If the termination was done illegally you may contest and bring to the notice of the court about this retirement option. Also, do consider the age of your father, if he was close to retirement age then taking retirement option and ending the litigation seems to be the best option. Lastly, the question of weakening the case would not arise as when you take the option of retirement it would be at the cost of withdrawal of writ petition.

If the services of your father were terminated then he ceased to be the employee of the concerned department so how can the department give him option of retirement. You need to clarify further. If they are withdrawing the termination on your father's option to choose voluntary retirement, then it all depends on the merits of your case. I'll need further details to help you on this.
