Government of Sindh has imposed a section 144 on using Hookah or Shisha smoking and violators may be awarded 6 months vigorous imprisonment under 188 PPC. Shisha smoking is more fatal than cigarette, biri because in this, there are 40% tobacco and 60% flavor, chemical elements which cause cancer. A person, who sits in room where Shisha is taken, inhales tobacco of one to two hundred cigarette and other fatal chemicals in one hour only. Despite that fact, now a day’s children, women and men are using Shisha as a fashion.
Strict action will be taken against Shisha smoking in Karachi city from 1st April, 2012 (Sunday). People are requested to cooperate with the administration in this regard. If Shisha or Hookah is being used around you or at a hotel, restaurant, then immediately inform at the given numbers, so that action may be taken against involved people.
