There are biryani lovers, and then there are biryani lovers. No, really. It almost feels unreal to imagine that such people may exist who don't like this absolutely drool-some non-vegetarian delicacy. Yes, non-vegetarian. Because nothing like a veg-biryani exists. But let's save that discussion for another time.
The reason why we are discussing biryani in the first place is because Pakistan's Minister of Agriculture of Sindh, Ismail Rahoo came up with the most absurd solution to deal with the current onslaught of locusts in the city of Karachi - Locust Biryani.November 11, 2019
Just to give you more context, here is the deal.
So, of late, Karachi has been under attack from swarms of locusts infesting the city, and agitated people are reaching out to the government to come up with a solution for this nuisance. Reportedly, when Agriculture minister Rahoo was contacted by the media and asked for a response, he gave the strangest 'solution' - cook the locusts and enjoy them as barbeque or as biryani.November 11, 2019
Mr Rahoo said, "Iska aap barbeque kar sakte hain, biryani bana sakte hain. Kadhahi bhi ban sakti hai iski. Iski badi badi dishes banti hain."
Here's the video that went viral.

Now, what sort of a solution or even response is that? As a public servant, the least Mr Rahoo could have done was to show some concern and offer some sort of assistance. But alas, that was not to be, and he ended up offending scores of biryani lovers instead.
Janta maaf nahi karegi Rahoo sahab.
