Both students get expelled from University

A video of a female student proposing to her university mate within the University of Lahore premises went viral on social media.

The viral footage shows the woman with her right knee bent, a bouquet of roses in her hand, proposing to a man, who hugs her afterwards.

The proposal video, which has gone viral on social media, has caused an uproar in the University of Lahore.

The varsity issued a letter on Friday in which it said the disciplinary committee has decided to expel the students.

“A meeting of the Special Disciplinary Committee was held on 12-3-2021 at 10:30am in the Office of the Rector,” reads the notification.

It said that the two students “were involved in gross misconduct and violation of University rules”, adding that they were summoned before the committee but “failed to appear.”

The order further stated that in pursuance of Section 9 of the General Discipline and Code of Conduct on the Campus, the committee has decided to expel the two students for violating the varsity’s rules and regulations and “serious infraction of the code of conduct”.

“Furthermore, as per Section 16 […] they are debarred from entering the premises of University of Lahore and all its sub-campuses.”

Social activist and wife of former cricketer Wasim Akram, Shaniera Akram, and Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Political Communication Shahbaz Gill have raised their voice against the university’s decision to expel the students.

We just celebrated International women’s day and here we are with a top University expelling a young woman for having the confidence and empowerment to ask a man to marry her amongst the security of her peers. What kind of example are we setting here ? #CantExpelLove

“We just celebrated International Women’s Day, and here we are with a top university expelling a young woman for having the confidence and empowerment to ask a man to marry her amongst the security of her peers,” said Akram.

Meanwhile, the PM  Imran’s special assistant said they were “young children who are unaware of the many worries of life.”

“They should indeed have avoided hugging, in view of our culture and values,” the special assistant said.
