    On the evening of March 21st, the Hyderabad police conducted a raid on a hookah parlour located in Suleman Nagar, a residential area in the city. The operation resulted in the arrest of 15 individuals, including the owner of the establishment and several customers.

    The raid was carried out after receiving complaints from local residents about the noise and disturbance caused by the hookah parlour. The police also suspected that the establishment was serving tobacco-based products, which is illegal under Indian law.

    During the raid, the police seized several hookahs and related equipment, as well as a quantity of tobacco and other substances. The arrested individuals were charged with various offenses, including violating the Cigarettes and Other Tobacco Products Act (COTPA) and disturbing public peace.

    The incident has sparked a debate about the regulation of hookah parlours in Hyderabad and other Indian cities. While some argue that such establishments provide a social space for young people and should be allowed to operate under certain conditions, others point out the health risks associated with smoking hookah and the potential for such places to become hubs for illegal activities.

    According to a recent study by the World Health Organization (WHO), smoking hookah for one hour can be as harmful as smoking 100 cigarettes. The study also found that hookah smoking is particularly popular among young people in India, with many believing it to be a safer alternative to cigarettes.

    However, experts warn that hookah smoke contains many of the same harmful chemicals found in cigarette smoke, including carbon monoxide, heavy metals, and cancer-causing substances. In addition, sharing a hookah mouthpiece can increase the risk of infectious diseases such as tuberculosis and hepatitis.

    In response to these concerns, several Indian states have implemented stricter regulations on hookah parlours in recent years. For example, Maharashtra state has banned smoking in all public places, including hookah bars, while Delhi has restricted the sale of tobacco-based products to licensed shops only.

    The incident in Suleman Nagar highlights the need for greater awareness and enforcement of laws related to hookah smoking in India. While the social and cultural significance of hookah may make it difficult to completely ban such establishments, it is important to ensure that they operate in a safe and legal manner, and that customers are aware of the health risks associated with smoking hookah.
