Pakistan Foreign Minister, Khawaja Asif, criticised Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu's visit to India.

He allegedly accused the two countries to have "anti-Islam nexus". 

Asif, in an interview, on Wednesday noted both the countries to have a connection.

He said that both India and Isreal have occupied Muslim territories -- India has occupied Kashmir while Israel is occupying a vast area of Palestine.

Asif also accused India of the mass killing of Muslims in Gujarat.

Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is on a 6-day visit to India.

Netanyahu and PM Modi attended a roadshow together in Gujarat earlier today followed by the inauguration of the iCreate centre in Ahmedabad.
