Viral Now: Pakistan minister calls garlic ginger, reprimanded on Twitter



Garlic, ginger, onion and tomato are some of the main ingredients of South Asian cuisine. Although expert cooks are extremely familiar with their usage and nomenclature, other novice cooks may be confused between them. In a recent video that surfaced on social media, a major naming mistake by a Pakistan minister was caught on camera. The minister was trying to remember the Hindi name of garlic, and instead of saying ‘lehsun’ he said, “Lahsun is adrak hai”. Twitter users were left in splits after seeing this funny fake that was going viral on the micro-blogging platform soon. Take a look:

The clip was posted on Twitter by user @nalainayat, where it has garnered over 260k views and thousands of likes. Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry said, “Garlic is ginger.” Learns a new thing every day,” the user wrote in his tweet.

The 22-second video was from a press conference where the rising prices of vegetables and ingredients were being discussed. Pakistan’s Information and Broadcasting Minister Fawad Chaudhry was featured in the video and was clearly proposing to reduce the prices of these vegetables. After struggling to remember the Hindi word for garlic, he was inspired by others to call it ‘lehsun’. However, he suddenly backed off and said, “No no, garlic is ginger.”

The funny clip certainly broke Twitter and left users divided. While some may relate to the confusion by the Pakistan minister and call it an honest mistake, others simply laughed at the mistake. Take a look at the responses:
