According to details, the apex court also ordered Inspector General (IG) Police Punjab and Sindh to take strict action against Sheesha cafes and submit compliance report on next hearing.
While taking up a petition filed by a citizen on Thursday, Chief Justice Anwar Zaheer Jamali said that “drugs are being used in Sheesha centres but respective institutions don’t budge. Have the government institutions thought that they have to do no job and they have no responsibility to save the youth from the menace of addiction. No action is being taken at any level. It seems as if the departments don’t want to bring any improvement in the society”.
It is pertinent to mention here that A bill on prevention of Sheesha centres is pending for legislation since 2014. Other legislations are enacted immediately but the legislation of public was being delayed. Government should legislate in this regard.
