Islamabad has banned BBQ, bonfire, and smoking activities in Margalla Hills.

The Islamabad Wildlife Management Board has requested the administration to prohibit several activities, including tree-cutting, smoking, bonfires, burning, littering, and carrying flammable objects such as lighters, charcoal, matchsticks, gasoline, and kerosene in the Margalla Hills National Park. As part of the administration’s initiative to reduce air pollution, littering, and forest fires, the park has been closed to all forms of recreation, and a notification has been issued stating that these activities violate the Islamabad Wildlife Ordinance. The board has also warned of the danger of forest fires in the park during the April to July fire season and has developed a fire protection strategy to protect the park’s wildlife and plant life.
