CAIRO: Egypt’s Al-Azhar univer­sity yes­ter­day said it had ex­pelled a fe­male stu­dent after she ap­peared in a video hug­ging a male col­league, ac­cus­ing her of un­der­min­ing the school’s rep­u­ta­tion. The video, which went vi­ral ear­lier this month, showed a young man car­ry­ing a bou­quet of flow­ers kneel­ing be­fore a young woman and then hug­ging her in what ap­peared to be a mar­riage pro­posal at Man­soura Univer­sity. The dis­ci­plinary coun­cil of the Al-Azhar Univer­sity cam­pus in Man­soura on Satur­day “de­cided to ex­pel the young girl defini­tively”, univer­sity spokesman Ahmed Zarie said, adding the woman can ap­peal the de­ci­sion. The young man could also face sanc­tions, a spokesman for Man­soura Univer­sity said, adding that the school’s dis­ci­plinary coun­cil will meet to­day to de­cide his “pun­ish­ment”.
