Society of Alternative Media and Research v. Government of Punjab (WP No. 25011-2011)

A non-governmental organization petitioned the Punjab government asking that the 2002 Non-Smokers Health Ordinance's ban on tobacco use in public be applied to “shisha” (water pipe smoking) in cafés. The court ordered enforcement authorities to strictly enforce the law. As a result of this decision, restaurants and cafes in Punjab Province cannot legally serve “shisha”.
