Undeniably not. Carbohydrates are the major source of energy for our body. The reason carbs have gotten a bad name, is that most of the yummy 'carbs' have transitioned from whole grains, fruits and vegetables to refined grains and highly processed foods (with added fat). Unless you are Diabetic and need to survive your blood sugars daily, it is important to incorporate carbohydrates into your daily intake. Trying to stick to fiber rich carbohydrates such as fruits, vegetables or whole grains instead of simple carbohydrates such as sugar, white flour or highly processed foods will allow you the energy needed to power your body plus give you the extra nutrients those foods provide.
