According to news reports, Gutka addiction is on an ultimate rise in Pakistan and has become the cause of multiple diseases. Gutka, which is being commonly sold all over the country, is carelessly being adopted by the new generation. Sources suggest that nearly 75% of the patients diagnosed with cancer are Gutka users, and out of them, 7% are children. It is my humble request to the government to ban the sale of Gutka in the country, otherwise, generations upon generations would fall into its addiction.
