‘Sheesha’ ban being violated in Jinnah Super Market

Islamabad

March 14, 2018

Islamabad: A ‘sheesha’ cafe allegedly being run in the heart of the Jinnah Super Market speaks volumes of the tactics recently introduced by some ‘evil’ brains to deceive the local administration.

A visitor who spent few hours in this ‘sheesha’ cafe confided to this correspondent that it is basically a food court on the second floor of a plaza near the main road of Jinnah Super Market where ‘sheesha’ is served to the customers.

“The ‘sheesha’ was being served to the customers in that centre. When I asked the waiter if there was any kind of threat of raid by the local administration he informed that in that case all these seating arrangement will be changed within no time because everything like sofas and tables have wheels and can be easily pushed towards a hidden room,” he said.

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO) the volume of smoke inhaled in an hour-long sheesha session is estimated to be the equivalent of smoking between 100 and 200 cigarettes.

Further sharing his experience in the ‘sheesha’ café he said he paid Rs1,200 for one time use of ‘sheesha’ in that place where most of the customers had arrived just to ‘enjoy’ this illegal

facility.
