Often, Lahoris, Karachiites and Islambadis are seen engaged in a strong debate over how Biryani should be made. Its natural state of being has been argued over for the longest time. Once the initial chicken vs beef debate has been settled, another disagreement surfaces:

 

To aaloo or not to aaloo, that is the question.

Well, this very debate was taken a step further on a Facebook group.

A member posted the following question:

And, of course, all hell broke loose.

 

People couldn’t comprehend how such a question could even be asked.

In fact, some declared that aaloo in Biryani is pretty much mandatory.

Moreover, some claimed that aaloo is to Biryani as the soul is to the body.

And some people stated that the aaloo is more important than the boti.

Via Facebook

Some retaliated by saying it’s absolutely necessary to put aaloos in the dish.

Via Facebook

Some people believed that not putting potatoes in the dish was the real gunaah. 

Via Facebook

There were memes.

Via Facebook

Because, of course.

However, some chose a more neutral approach. 

Via Facebook

Others – not so much.

Via Facebook

In fact, they wanted aaloo-eaters to have their Biryani-consuming rights revoked.

Via Facebook

Moreover, some explained their point through a brief history lesson. 

Via Facebook

And some called it a “third base sin.”
