New Delhi, July 14 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party has cautioned the United Progressive Alliance government ahead of discussions with Pakistan in the wake of the Pakistani Government's withdrawal of appeal challenging Pakistan High court's order to release Hafiz Saeed, the top LeT operative wanted in Mumbai terror attacks of last November.

Senior BJP leader Venkaiah Naidu on Tuesday said that the Government should take note of the release of Hafiz Mohammad Saeed and should act with care.

"Hafiz Saeed (a top operative of the Pakistan-based terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba) issue is also a major issue and also an example that how Pakistan is trying to be soft on people who are engaging in terrorism. This is a classic case and India should convey it to Pakistan even before the resumption of talks," said Naidu in New Delhi.

As the Supreme Court (SC) was to hear petitions on Tuesday against the release of the Jammat ud Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Muhammad Saeed by the Lahore High Court, the Punjab government informed the apex court that it has decided to withdraw the case against Hafiz Saeed and filed a plea for withdrawal of the case.( Watch )
