Girl Expelled From University For Hugging Her Boyfriend After He Proposed To Her – [Photos/Video]

Al-Azhar University in Egypt has confirmed the expulsion of a female student who they said was undermining the school’s reputation after she appeared in a video hugging a male colleague who proposed to her.

The video which was not filmed at Al-Azhar, but at another establishment, Mansoura University in the country’s north, went viral earlier this month.

The video showed the moment a young man carrying a bouquet of flowers kneeling before a young woman and then hugging her in what appeared to be a proposal.

The disciplinary council of the Al-Azhar University campus in Mansoura on Saturday “decided to expel the young girl definitively”.

The university spokesman, Ahmed Zarie told AFP that the video had caused a “public outcry” and that the university’s decision to expel her was because she had presented a “bad image” of Al-Azhar University, which strictly segregates the genders. He said hugging between unmarried men and women violates “the values and principles of society”.

The expelled student, however, can appeal the expulsion decision, Zarie said. The young man who appeared in the video could also face sanctions, adding that the school’s disciplinary council will meet on Monday to decide his “punishment”.
