New York, Sep 27: Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Sunday, Sep 27 said that Pakistan does not want to take to court a 'half-baked' case against JuD chief Hafiz Saaed and needs 'legally tenable' evidence against him

"We will certainly not hesitate for taking action (against Saeed), but we got to have a case which is legally tenable because if we take a case into court which is a half-baked case and if the court sets him free, you'll say 'collusion', 'drama'. No we are not in a mood to collude with terrorists," Qureshi told a news channel.

When asked about Saeed has not been arrested though two FIRs were filed against him, Qureshi said, "That's for us to decide and that's for the legal process in Pakistan to decide.

"There are procedures that you have to follow. We have a very independent judiciary. Thank God for that. You know how cumbersome legal procedures are but we will not be soft on anyone who wants to move out of line of government policy."
