Smoking in KU on the rise

Everyone is aware of smoking lethality to health but most of us do not follow this advice.

Being a student of the University of Karachi, I observe that a majority, probably every third student smoke within the premises of the university and this number is growing continuously. Those who do not smoke before getting admission are also found smoking without any hesitation as they have an easy access to cigarettes of every brand.

The most interesting thing is that shops inside the university may not have necessary items such as stationery but they do sell cigarettes due to increasing demand. It is a wrong perception that only male students smoke cigarettes as nowadays girls have also started smoking inside the varsity’s premises covertly.
