As far as I understand the manual page of gpg2, it should be the option "--no-tty" to be used.
--no-tty Make  sure  that  the  TTY  (terminal) is never used for any output.  This option is needed in some cases because GnuPG sometimes prints warnings to the TTY even if --batch is used.

So instead of -q or --quiet, you should use --no-tty. For example:

gpg2 --decrypt --no-tty abc.gpg
