The Delhi High Court on Tuesday gave a nod to the sale of herbal hookah in bars and restaurants in the national capital. The court said that Covid-19 restrictions cannot be permitted to continue at the cost of livelihood.

In October this year, the Delhi government had opposed a plead filed by bars and restaurants asking permission to sell and serve herbal flavoured hookah. The government had then said that the consumption of hookah might lead to surge in Covid-19 cases.

On November 16, the High Court said that when cinemas and other activities have been reopened, it would not be appropriate to keep the petitioners waiting.

Also known as shisha or waterpipe, hookah is an instrument used for vapourising and smoking tobacco and drugs. It is usually practised in groups during social gatherings. It is said that the instrument was first invented during Mughal India by Abul-Fath Gilani who was a Persian physician of Akbar. Gradually, it spread across the country.

The old tradition of hookah has become a trend among youngsters. As the Delhi High Court allowed the sale of herbal hookah in bars and restaurants, let’s know all about it.

What is herbal hookah?

Hookah generally contains tobacco that is sweetened with molasses. It is often consumed with additional flavoured molasses such as coffee, coconut, strawberry, mint, and others. The flavourings make the hookah sweet in the taste and aroma of the tobacco.

When it comes to herbal hookah, it is made from organic herbs and contains carcinogenic compounds like naphthalene and chrysene. A similar amount of these compounds are found in cigarettes. Smoking herbal hookah does not get anyone high however it might make one feel dizzy, relaxed, and lightheaded.

The main difference between a flavoured and herbal hookah is the absence of nicotine. Herbal hookah is nicotine-free and contains herbal molasses.

The hookah has appealed to youngsters in recent times and is widely consumed across the country. However, these are not safe for health and leads to heart attack, respiratory problems, decreased fertility, reduced lung function, cough, and stroke.

Another incident of a similar nature transpired in Bihar where a girl asked IAS Harjyot Kaur, Bihar Women Development Corporation’s Managing Director for the sanitary pads to be made available for free. To this request, IAS Harjyot Kaur, asked if there is an end to the demands made by the public and further asked that right now you are asking for sanitary pads and tomorrow you will ask for condoms.

The statement by the official enraged Twitter as many people came to check the official’s remark and asked if India is a welfare state, then why are people’s demands being dismissed and becoming a taboo topic for her.
