The imposition of 25% tax on E-cigarettes has created a legal justification for the sale of e-cigarettes, which is strongly condemned, said Sana Ullah Ghuman

Sanaullah Ghuman, General Secretary, Pakistan National Heart Association (PANAH), said that the imposition of 25% tax on E-cigarettes by the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) means issuing a license to the concerned companies on the sale of these cigarettes. Talking to reporters, Sanaullah Ghman said that e-cigarettes are more dangerous than other cigarettes. The use of e-cigarettes affects the brain development of the younger generation. Toxic substances can affect human health, according to research by experts from the University of Research Medical Center. Cinnamon, vanilla and oily flavors in E-cigarettes are the most dangerous, young people quickly eliminate white blood cells in the body, found in these flavors. Sanaullah Ghuman said that the Supreme Court has banned glass while E-cigarettes also fall under this category, including e-cigarettes and nicotine. The use of E-cigarettes is banned in India and the United States in conjunction with various toxic chemicals.On the one hand, we do not lose a single match against India, on the other hand, we impose tax on e-cigarettes, which is harmful to human life. Sanaullah Ghman said that on December 3, 2019, more than 200 health experts from Panah appealed to Prime Minister Imran Khan that E-cigarettes are more dangerous than other cigarettes, it should be banned, we would talk about saving lives While the FBR is taxing e-cigarette traders by imposing a tax, because the imposition of the tax clearly means that you are allowing the use of e-cigarettes, we urge that this decision be reversed immediately. And save the future of our young generation from ruin.
