Earlier, singer Mustafa Zahid also made a point to ask his followers to quit smoking and never let their parents do it either following the death of his father.
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.
