Sharmila Farooqi's cooking video has social media in fits

Published: April 2, 2020

Pakistani politician and former advisor to the Chief Minister of Sindh Sharmila Farooqi like everyone else has taken to Instagram to document life in quarantine. Her latest video in which she is giving cooking advice became the subject of ridicule after Sharmila wasn’t  able to relay what exactly she was making.

To put it simply, she starts out by letting the audience know that she is making chicken fillets. Towards the end of the clip Sharmila starts to refer the same chicken fillets as red snapper. Among other things, she also talks about cutting the duum (tail) of the chicken fillet.

Naturally, people were amused and a bit concerned after viewing the clip.

Many went on to call it the post of the decade with some predicting a meme uprising after this.

The video made one person question Sharmila’s entire political career.

While the other saw it as Sharmila giving Meera Jee a run for her money.
