The news comes days after State Minister for Interior Shehryar Afridi said that 75% of the female students in Islamabad’s education institutes use ice.

Ice, as it is called on the street, is crystal meth of methamphetamines in the form of crystals. Methamphetamines are a stimulant drug that comes as a white, bitter powder or pill. Crystal meth looks like glass. It is also called speed.

Ice can be swallowed, snorted, smoked or injected. It is most commonly smoked in a glass ice pipe or injected.

    شکر الحمد للّہ Shukar Alhamdolillah.
    I hope the government has also started an equivalent treatment and rehab program deal with withdrawal and relapse prevention. This is tip of the iceberg. An entire Ex governor house would need to converted into a state of the art of treatment, rehab relapse prevention and awareness for prevention center.
    I shall offer nafals today and pray for this team
