Iran denies backing sectarian groups in Pakistan

KARACHI: The Consulate General of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Karachi on Wednesday denied reports which accused Tehran of having links with the religious and sectarian strife in Pakistan.

In a statement, the Iranian consulate general termed the allegations, “baseless and irresponsible”.“It as an effort for diverting public opinion from the root causes of the strife, sabotaging the two countries’ friendly and brotherly relations and fomenting division among Muslim brothers,” the statement said.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran has always raised voice for unity and fraternity of Muslim ummah and believes that creating discord and hatred among Muslim communities only helps the enemies of Islam in reaching their objectives.”
