Lahore University Proposal

The University of Lahore (UOL) has expelled a young boy and girl from the university after a video of them proposing and embracing each other in front of other students flooded all over the internet.

Recently, a video went viral on social media in which in the presence of other students, a female student was seen kneeling down and offering flowers to a boy, expressing her love for the student, and then both embraced each other.

The video went viral on social media after which, the notice signed by the registrar of the University of Lahore issued stated that the students have been dismissed from the university and their admission to the university has been banned.

Several social media users began to comment over the matter as some were in favour of the decision taken by the management while others are calling out the authorities for their decision.

Similarly, Shaniera Akram, wife of cricketer Wasim Akram, and Special Assistant to Prime Minister Shahbaz Gill have raised their voice against the university’s decision to dismiss 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,” said Shaniera in her tweet.

She further added, “What kind of example are we setting here?” she asked. “Our celebrities & sports stars propose, show affection or date in public but it’s not okay for our youth to do so?”

On the other hand, Gill tweeted, “Young children are unaware of the many worries of life. They should indeed have avoided hugging, in view of our culture and values.”

“But expelling them from the university is not the solution” he added.

Furthermore, students who were expelled under section 16 of the General Discipline Rules and Code of Conduct of the campus will not be allowed to enter the next university or any of its campuses, the notice read.

Since the ban on admission of students, #UniversityOfLahore has been trending on social media and different opinions are being expressed by the users.
