In statement issued on Thursday, The PTI chief, while commenting on the news that has been published in a section of press about suicide attack threats from Taliban against him, said that the protest march in Miramshah will be held as per its schedule on September 23 to raise voice for the innocent people of the area who have been targeted in those attacks.

“Life and death is in God's hands…...anyone who believes in Allah knows death is eternal and it will come on fixed time,” said the PTI chief, adding that he is not concerned over authenticity of the statements from Taliban.
