Prof Habibe Millat, of Sirajganj constituency, said that tobacco harms all the organs from head to toe. Therefore, it is necessary to reform the existing law and strengthen enforcement.

Four members of the parliament (MPs) recently stressed at a webinar that imposing higher and specific taxes on tobacco products, enlarging the pictorial health warnings to 90% and amending existing laws, including banning e-cigarettes, are now top priorities. Barrister Shamim Haider Patwari, of Gaibandha 1 constituency, said that neighboring countries have pictorial health warnings on tobacco product packets from 80% to 90%, but in Bangladesh it is only 50%.
