Realising that lassi can hamper the Friday protest call, the city district government of Lahore along with police and political activists have started a crackdown on milk shops to disrupt the supply of yoghurt and lassi on Friday. It is very much pertinent to mention here that the government has given a call to the public to remain outdoors every Friday from 12pm to 12:30pm so that Kashmir cause be given a step forward.
“We have purposed to the government to impose section 144 under which drinking lassi on every Friday is banned and the violators will have to stay outdoor every Friday and Saturday,” said a government spokesperson on the condition of anonymity. When asked the reason for not disclosing their name, the spokesperson that the special assistant to the prime minister on information had wished to announce every important decision of the government in her press conference on PTV.
The source said that most of the people drank lassi on Friday and drowse in post-breakfast hours.
Reacting to the development, JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman and PPP Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto have declared Fridays as Lassi day. Both have appealed to their followers to drink lassi and distribute lassi to the public.
On twitter, #NoTo Lassi and #LassiLassi were the top trends.
