It’s not a rare occasion to see Pakistanis fighting over the varying types of food. Case in point: biryani with or without aaloo, chicken or beef nihari, or well…this time it is meethi vs namkeen lassi and the Twitter awam is going crazy.
Lassi, with its roots within the subcontinent, is obsessed over by a large number of people
Who doesn’t love lassi, right? The possibilities are endless, whether it be infused with particular flavors, fruits, or even spices. Lassi always brings joy.
However, lassi, along with happiness, is bringing about a phadda among the people of Pakistan
Twitter users of Pakistan have been divided in two after the debate about meethi vs namkeen lassi ensued.
Which is superior

People were quick to show support for their lassi preferences!
There is only one kind of lassi and its meethi lassi

Namkeen lassi, all else is just noise! Meethi lassi is lassi with steroids on

This person straight up targetted the taste buds of Team Meethi Lassi
Namkeen lassi>>>> meethi lassi.. argue with your non existent taste buds

Namkeen lassi was even compared to raita
Wtf is namkeen lassi? Just call it raita and go
— Adin (@fightmenn) May 1, 2020
Team Namkeen Lassi couldn’t handle this
This proves two things. One that your household makes absolutely shit raita, second that it makes absolutely shit namkeen lassi! https://t.co/1EkcgVQlV6

People also tried ‘canceling’ namkeen lassi by declaring that meethi lassi is the only real lassi
METHI LASSI IS REAL LASSI, NAMKEEN LASSI IS JUST TRASH

However, Team Namkeen Lassi was way too serious about getting their facts right to support their team
On the contrary actually. Namkeen chatti wali lassi is the real lassi, it’s as old as history of Punjab. Sugar came in the last half of 20th century so Meethi lassi is still a new concept comparatively.
Namkeen lassi is there for atleast 3-4 centuries https://t.co/y2tMhIff5e

Some users tried blaming namkeen lassi for their saltiness
Bitches be choosing namkeen lassi over meethi and thinking they salty. I'm bitches.
— Bitchari (@ektaangnakli) May 1, 2020
Some users hailed Team Namkeen Lassi as untrustworthy
I don’t trust people who like namkeen lassi https://t.co/qGubs9pzTC
— baby blue (@probablyawake_) May 1, 2020
Basically, shiz got real
Imagine thinking Namkeen Lassi can even be brought in the same discussion as Meethi Lassi.. Human digs themselves into a new low everyday on twitter dot com 👎 https://t.co/l8abGLeie6
— Anas Khan (@AnasMagnificent) May 2, 2020
Memes were made
Namkeen lassi is better than meethi lassi.

The fight reached a point where friend groups began breaking apart
can't believe my twitter friend groups are breaking apart over a war between meethi lassi vs namkeen lassi
— worrysha (@parathacentral) May 1, 2020
However, some people thought it was all senseless, unless there was a specific reason behind it
Nobody here should care about the other person liking meethi or namkeen lassi unless y’all planning to marry each other.
