There is a place to do anything. There is place to perform Namaz, study, to dance, and to hangout. This is not a Jungle Law here, where you just "SHIT" on road and say its "FREEDOM".

You want to praise women empowerment by saying "it was Khadija who sent the proposal to Muhammad MashaAllah"

مرضی سے شادی ہر لڑکی کا بنیادی حق ہے، اسلام عورتوں کو جو حقوق دیتا ہے مرضی کی شادی ان حقوق میں مرکزی حیثئیت رکھتی ہے یونیورسٹی انتظامیہ اپنے فیصلے پر نظرثانی کرے، لڑکیوں کو پراپرٹی سمجھنا اسلام کے خلاف ہے

Two Lahori students expelled because of a public marriage proposal and subsequent display of affection.
What a violent, toxic mess this is.
A State that surveils, censors and bans all things natural and joyous, not realising THIS is how you brutalize a society https://t.co/fLPclp2RB4

Apply all the rules you want but you can’t expel love! It’s in our hearts, it’s the best part about being young and it what makes life worth living! You learn more about love than you can ever learn at an institution ❤️

A country where pedophiles are defended and protected in the name of child marriage and converting religion of little girls we are uncomfortable with two consenting adults expressing love for each other. We reduce our so called morals to a joke everyday. #UniversityOfLahore

The boy in the video, Shehryar Ahmed Rana took his Twitter account to apologized for their actions. He said it was all his fault and request people not to backlash the girl, as she is a noble girl. He tried his best to request everyone not to show her face while making fun of them. In his message, he clearly states that people are calling her characterless because she exhibits her feeling for him publicly.

Now people are requesting UOL to take back their decision of expelling them so they can complete their degree. As their studies are also important for them.
Will the management take back their decision now?
