Srinagar: Depicting the popularity of Hurriyat in Kashmir in the current times, around 200 youth turned up on Monday at the Awami Action Committee’s office in Rajouri Kadal Srinagar and volunteered themselves to guard Mirwaiz Umar Farooq a day after the authorities withdrew his security cover.

Awami Action Committee in a statement issued in Srinagar, today, said since Monday morning hundreds of boys are swarming to register themselves for Mirwaiz Umar Farooq’s personal security.

Taking to Twitter, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq said he was overwhelmed by the love and affection showered by the young men by volunteering themselves for the security cover. “Moved by the love and affection of these young men, my gratitude to their selfless love,” Mirwaiz tweeted.

On Sunday, the authorities led by Governor Satya Pal Malik announced to withdraw so-called security cover to Hurriyat leaders including Mirwaiz Umar Farooq.

Awami Action Committee (AAC) youth President Mushtaq Ahmad Sofi said that at least 200 youth have enrolled themselves today at Mirwaiz Manzil in Rajouri Kadal and have decided to act as security of Mirwaiz.

He said the youth are enrolling themselves in large numbers at present and decision in this regard will be taken shortly.
