The Lahore High Court has ordered all cafes in Johar Town to close by 10 pm every day except for Saturdays when they can stay open for an extra hour. This is to help reduce the smog in the city. The Air Quality Index in Lahore is at a hazardous level, and there are restrictions on movement in several cities in Punjab to combat smog. The government has also made face masks compulsory in some districts and imposed a limited lockdown. The judge also ordered the closure of smoke-belching factories and criticized the city’s environment department and road excavation. The judge said that smog won’t come under control unless anti-smog measures are implemented. He also praised a cycle rally in Lahore and adjourned the hearing till December 4.
