Over 80% Pakistanis Believe That Lahoris Are a Different Species

Punjab’s Health Minister, Dr. Yasmin Rashid, vented out her frustration at the worsening coronavirus situation in the provincial capital Lahore, by saying that the Lahoris belong to a different species.

She said this because the residents of the city are known for ignoring the SOPs set forth by the health authorities to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus.

Let’s first hear out her words that have sparked plenty of debate. Some are acknowledging the fact that there’s something wrong with Lahoris while others are criticizing the minister for her remarks.

Dr. Yasmin has already apologized for her comments, however, the social media is rife with the debate. Ramiz Raja, a prominent name in the cricket world and a Lahori, recently started a poll to find out whether Dr. Yasmin was right or wrong.

With close to 15,000 votes cast, the results suggest that the health minister was right in her thinking. 85% of the voters have agreed that Lahoris are one of a kind species whereas the remaining 15% are angry at her statement.

The matter became an instant meme on Twitter and everyone’s sharing their views on her words.


What are your thoughts on the matter? Let us know in the comments.

  • ProPakistani, you are the typical “his master’s voice” when it comes to mouthing rhetoric of PTI and its cronies. Well done on that account once again.

  • I absolutely Agree with Tahir, the only Job of people here is to justify every Gaffe this Govt or its representatives make. Its not even funny anymore.

    They have now tried to even justify these disgraceful remarks about let alone Lahories but the people of the entire country.

  • After Dr. Yasmin Rashid’s ( Almost True ) Views About Lahoris,

    Here In Karachi, When Someone Augue Unnecessary, Not Try To Understand Anything, Or Act Foolish, We Karachiites Say

    ” Insaan Baan, Lahoria Na Baan “

  • I strongly condemn this behavior of calling names to our brothers. Shame on you for creating a news article and spreading hatred based on your master’s (PTI) agenda. How low will you go to defend your idiot masters?
    Again shame on you Sajawal, ProPakistani should ban this author.

    Peace for all from pindi.

  • All of us know from the inside that this is true but when we hear it from someone else’s mouth then our “Pakistan mode” is activated. I am not talking about lahoris, I am talking about us as a whole nation. Please try to take this as positive criticism. We should try to improve ourselves instead of blaming it on others.
