Pakistan has strongly condemned the latest incidents of violence against Muslims in India during the recent Hindu festivals.

In a statement, Foreign Office Spokesperson Asim Iftikhar Ahmad said this is yet another manifestation of the 'saffron terror' that has deeply permeated the Indian society.

He said the video circulating on social media, showing violence against Muslim boys tied to poles and beaten ruthlessly by the RSS zealots on allegation of pelting stones at a festival site, is horrific.

He said equally disturbing is the razing of houses belonging to Muslim families in Madhya Pradesh, also on the baseless allegation of hurling stones at holy Hindu sites.

The Spokesperson called upon Indian government to take decisive action against the fundamentalist Hindu elements for fomenting communal violence and hatred against Muslims.
