Abbottabad Shisha Decision

A “shisha” café challenged a local government order ordering it to close. The court upheld the order because the government has imposed a ban on shisha (water pipe) smoking in all public places, including restaurants. The court noted the dangers posed by tobacco use, especially to nonsmokers in public places.
