Smoking ban will hit shisha clubs - The UK government has released plans for a partial smoking ban effecting clubs and pubs that serve food.
Such a ban would hit Asian club owners. In particular, shisha club owners, who took advantage of sudden demand from Asian teenagers in the past couple of years. It will hit Muslims worst of all because they use shisha as alternative to drinking alcohol which is forbidden in Islam. And it will ruin the cultural appeal of Asian and Arab areas of Britain.
The partial smoking ban is not in practice as yet, though Spain became the first EU country this year to ban smoking in public places - restaurants, community centers, shopping malls.
