KP Agriculture Minister Opposes Tax on Naswar; Calls it Permissible and Consumed by Poor

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Agriculture Minister, retired Major Sajjad Khattak, voiced his concerns over a proposal to tax tobacco used in “naswar” during a debate on the finance bill amendment in the KP Assembly. He argued that naswar, commonly consumed by the poor, is permissible in Shariat as it does not entail reward or punishment. The proposal to tax naswar and cigarettes, deemed luxury items, came from opposition members who also called for the revocation of tax on private schools.

PML-N lawmaker Sobia Shahid suggested that tobacco should be taxed instead of education. Earlier this month, KP Chief Minister Ali Amin Gandapur also rejected a similar proposal, emphasizing that naswar is consumed by the poor, hence should not be taxed. The discussion highlights the ongoing debate over balancing taxation on luxury items and ensuring affordable access to education and necessities for the underprivileged.
