SWAT: NWFP Information Minister Mian Iftikhar Hussain on Tuesday said that no talks would be held with the extremists until they were defeated by the forces.
Speaking at a school function in Swat, he said we are followers of Hazrat Iman Hussain (R.A), we will sacrifice our lives, but will never bow down to the militants.
He said Swat is a place where it had become difficult to live. But now healthy activities have started. “We give a message to the world that we are not terrorist. We are peaceful people,” he said.
