Senator Mushtaq Ahmed Pointed Out

Islam prohibits the consumption of alcohol but its consumption is on the rise in the Country. He said that alcohol is being sold illegally on a large scale in the Country, alleging that institutions and organizations are involved in this illegal business.

The Senator further said that alcohol is being smuggled in collusion with personnel of Customs, Coast Guard and FC.

According to Mushtaq Ahmed, minorities in the Country are given liquor permits, but there is a lack of information on this matter. However, Senator of Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) Danesh Kumar pointed out that even minority religions prohibit the consumption of alcohol, and yet the wealthy are involved in drug use such as alcohol.

Senator Dinesh Kumar said that some people in the Upper House of the Parliament also consume alcohol. He said that everyone should be permitted to drink alcohol if there are no existing laws to prevent it.
