He said the West was condemning the Government for punishing perpetrators of violence but ignoring the violent acts of the opposition, which have left a trail of destruction and seriously injured policewomen and men.
"When they criticise Government when it tries to prevent violence and punish perpetrators of that violence, we take the position that they can go hang," said President Mugabe.
He was responding to questions from journalists at State House after holding talks with Tanzanian President Jakaya Kikwete.
"This is the West, which has always supported the opposition here and elsewhere. We do not accept their criticism at all.
"Here are groups of persons who went out of their way to effect a campaign of violence.
"We hear no criticism of this campaign from Western governments. None of these (Western) missions here have said a word against that campaign of violence," said Cde Mugabe.
