Yesterday, depending on which side you are on, Pakistani Twitter had a lot to say about a political crisis that was unfolding in Karachi.

We’ve collected some of the best and hilarious responses to the MQM-Rangers fiasco yesterday. So if you are just looking for a laugh to lighten up your day, you’ve come to the right place.
The political actors had to choose this day to take the shine away from Pakistani cricket team achieving number 1 test ranking. Some saw it differently:

This one is too meta to process:
Is this an end to ‘Aaam Khayega Aam’?
Wonder if Amir Liaquat exclaimed "AIK JAISAY KAPRAY!" upon seeing uniformed rangers.
