Pakistan has condemned a US-made video insulting the Prophet Mohammed and thought to have contributed to a mob attack on the US consulate in Libya, which killed the ambassador and three other Americans, dpa reported.
The event has hurt Muslims across the world, Pakistan's foreign ministry said in a statement issued late Wednesday.
"Such abominable actions, synchronizing with commemoration of atrocious events like 9/11, provoke hatred, discord and enmity within societies and between peoples of various faiths."
The statement said Pakistan believed that "all manifestations of extremist tendencies must be opposed."
Pakistan, a predominantly Muslim nation of about 180 million people, often witnesses violent protests against actions held to defame Islam.
The posting of video clips in Arabic and English on the YouTube website coincided with the 11th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks on the United States.
Islamabad, in a separate statement, also "strongly condemned" the killing of US ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans in the attack on the US consulate in Libya's eastern city of Benghazi Tuesday.
