Madrid: A Pakistani man was arrested on Tuesday in the city L'Hospitalet de Llobregat near Barcelona for spreading jihadist propaganda, the Spanish Ministry of Interior said on Tuesday.

"The jihadist spread Daesh (Islamic State) dogma and hatred against westernised Muslim women through social media," Xinhua cited the ministry as saying in a statement.

The man had different accounts on social media which he had used to spread ideas and strategies of different jihadist groups operating in Syria and Iraq, especially Daesh.

Spain is threatened by jihadism, a phenomenon that has increased last year, according to a report by Spain's National Security Council, which was passed at a cabinet meeting on 27 May.
