Iran’s Zarif condemns organized violence against Indian Muslims

TEHRAN, Mar. 02 (MNA) – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif condemned the organized violence against Indian Muslim.

In a tweet released on Monday, Zarif wrote, “Iran condemns the wave of organized violence against Indian Muslims. For centuries, Iran has been a friend of India. We urge Indian authorities to ensure the wellbeing of ALL Indians & not let senseless thuggery prevail. Path forward lies in peaceful dialogue and rule of law.”

Earlier, Iranian Foreign Ministry said that Iran is concerned about what is happening in India in a reaction to the recent eruption of violence against Muslims in India.

Violence erupted in India following protests against a controversial citizenship law. At least 46 people, mostly Muslims, have been killed with more than 200 others injured. Passed in December 2019 the law paves a special path to Indian citizenship for migrants of nearly every prominent South Asian faith except for Islam.
