Declaring ride-hailing services are operating illegally in the country, the provincial governments of Sindh and Punjab have decided to move to ban Uber and Careem.
The Punjab government issued a notification to Chief Traffic Officer Lahore to ensure the services are not allowed on the city's roads, while the Sindh government asked PTA to block their apps.
Needless to say, the move drew much criticism. However, some fund homour, like we always do, in the government's move. Here are 14 of the most amusing Twitter reactions against the ban:

On a scale of Faisal Vawda to Trump, how dumb are the Provincial Governments of Sindh and Punjab to ban Uber and Careem?— Humayoun Ahmed Khan (@HumayounAK) January 31, 2017
The Punjab Govt. thinks the three-wheelers openly farting hazardous gases on the roads are safe but Uber/Careem is a threat to public. LOL.— Mazher Arshad (@MazherArshad) January 31, 2017
