This is in response to John, 'Live and let live' (GDN, September 5), who responded to my earlier letter over smoke in coffee shops.

I guess you missed the point, John.

I agree these are sheesha shops, but I don't believe they are supposed to be a place for people to suffocate, rather than go to enjoy some time and have some sheesha.

These shops, more than all the coffee shops, should have a well-built ventilation system.

The whole point of my letter was to highlight a case where the Health Ministry should take some action and start checking out all the coffee shops.

This was something they started with, but was never taken seriously and thus we still have all these coffee shops running.

I remember there were many articles and stories about banning sheesha from indoor coffee shops, so I guess it's time that they went ahead with some action, as this is totally against health measures.
