ISLAMABAD, July 13 (APP): Minister of State for
Capital Administration and Development Division (CADD) Dr
Tariq Fazal Chaudhry Wednesday said everyone had the right to  freedom of expression in the country but it should not
be misused for creating confusion.

Talking to a private news channel, he said the issue of
displaying of posters was unnecessarily played up in an attempt to create confusion between the civil and military leadership.

“This matter should have been ignored because the Pakistan Army  is a prime institution, which does not need to get fame with  such moves.”

He said the army was conducting operation Zarb-e-Azb
to eliminate anti-state elements and safeguard the
country’s boundaries, and it should not be related to such
irrelevant acts.

The minister said the whole nation appreciated the efforts of
army and General Raheel Sharif in the fight against terrorism.
“Both the government and military leadership have collectively  fought extremism and terrorism and rendered sacrifices,” he added.
