ISLAMABAD: Defence Minister Syed Naveed Qamar on Friday said that there is no such thing as “good or bad Taliban”, and that all those who are terrorists should be eliminated.

Speaking to media representatives in an informal conversation outside the Parliament House, Defence minister Syed Naveed Qamar said that Pakistan has so far released 26 Taliban prisoners.

The defence minister said that the Abbottabad commission report was being reviewed, after which it would be decided whether to make the report public or not.

Qamar said that the establishment was not behind Tehriki-Minhajul Quran (TMQ) chief Tahirul Qadri.

He said that it was Qadri’s right to protest, however, nobody can be allowed to violate the Constitution.

Qamar said that consultation over the caretaker setup would be held with the opposition on March 17, before which there was no possibility of any such talks.
