Mustafa Zahid urges fans to quit smoking that killed his father
LAHORE - Acclaimed singer Mustafa Zahid has urged fans to quit smoking and never let their parents smoke following the death of his father. Taking to Twitter, the 34-year-old vocalist shared that his father passed away a month ago due to excessive smoking.
“It’s been a month I’ve lost my father. The doctor’s voice still echos in my ears, “His lungs have been compromised because of excessive smoking” If you have a smoking parent go to them right now, fight with them, argue with them, do whatever it takes but never ever let them smoke,” he tweeted.

Earlier in September 2019, Pakistani TV star Sheheryar Munawar shared a picture from one of his recent photoshoots this week in which he held a cigarette in his hands. The actor posted a disclaimer with the picture, calling smoking a “disgusting” habit and urging people not to take it up. “It’s not cool,” he wrote, telling kids who were reading this not to start smoking.

disclaimer: smoking is a disgusting habit which I’ve struggled with and hopefully can kick it soon. To all the kids reading this, don’t take it up ! It’s not cool. However for some reason all my photographer friends feel it has a cinematic appeal to it when taking pictures.. So what I’ve decided is that If I do put up such pictures I’ll always put a disclaimer with the caption : smoking kills.
Munawar had said that his photographer friends all seem to think holding a cigarette will give photos “cinematic appeal”. So, Munawar has decided that whenever he puts up such pictures he’ll always put a disclaimer with the caption ‘smoking kills’.
According to the World Health Organization, Tobacco kills more than 8 million people each year. More than 7 million of those deaths are the result of direct tobacco use while around 1.2 million are the result of non-smokers being exposed to second-hand smoke.
