If there’s one thing that’ll never end on twitter, it’s the city wars between the Pakistanis!
A guy on twitter quoted a little something from the book ‘Karachi Youre Killing Me,’ comparing Karachi to Islamabad:
KARACHI IS BASICALLY ISLAMABAD ..,WITH THE SEA.

And it has the tweeple triggered!

Some thought it was a disgrace to Islamabad:
This tweet is a disgrace to Islamabad’s serenity 🥺

People were indecisive:
I don't understand to which city it is more insulting but wow it's so DISRESPECTFUL https://t.co/j1QUagXp55

Some reminded him of the things he was missing:
Jaane du bai… You a forgetting pan and abstract art on the walls

Some thought it was an insult to Karachi:
WTF. ARE YOU MAD? Karachi is so lively. Islamabad is basically dead.

— hab (@hababiee) July 2, 2020
Many thought Karachi deserved better:

Some thought there was no comparison between the two cities:
They can't be compared
Stop disrespecting Karachi FGS

Some found Karachi comparable to Pindi:
based on my limited experience, the city that has similar vibes to karachi is rawalpindi, especially the saddar region. https://t.co/6SiOfVGB9E
— Hamza (@wingsforus) July 2, 2020
Some straight up called it blasphemy!
Lolllll this is blasphemy against Islamabad https://t.co/hyDx0n6lEo

I'll fix that math for you.
Karachi is like Islamabad:
– Minus the surrounding mountains, cool air, good people, diplomats
+ Plus the sea, dirt, jahil awam, traffic, humidity, longer summers, shorter winters
So basically, nothing like Islamabad. https://t.co/VZe3KL2og7

Even the Karachiites disagreed:
Eventhough I’m originally from Karachi. BUT NO https://t.co/X6OYxmpRxN

Jo baat hai:
KARACHIII IS KARACHIII AND ISLAMABAD IS ISLAMABAD YOU CANNOT COMPARE THEM 🙄🙄🙄 https://t.co/BhmTWufl6q
— Rameen ♡ (@meenbleeh) July 3, 2020
embarrassing both karachites and islamabadis in the same tweet https://t.co/Pq9n452MdS

People were just not having it!
I’ve never supported city wars but this is gruesome. Delete your tweet. Your account. Your existence https://t.co/4oi95H13ZA

From a book!
From which deep pit of hell did this come from? 🤢🤢🤢 https://t.co/8u5ItvVNlE

among the two things that I am 100% confident about, is…. that it's not https://t.co/HIU1Ec3gwO

People threw shade at him:
When the only Karachi you have seen is from Sea View till Chhhota Bukhari. https://t.co/Fgdb19TmCX
— ChachiChatters Fan Account (@fhdumr) July 2, 2020
shittt idk which city should take more offense after this blatant blasphemous comparison. https://t.co/Y47d47Hv4G
— depreciation (@raving_dead) July 2, 2020
And while others took the tweet as a personal opinion, some were dumb founded at the literacy rate:
I feel sorry for this country’s literacy rate https://t.co/9imW4Rd2gl
