As being reported the university administration has also issued a notification to the student to expel them for proposing a boy in the presence of other classmates.




Ever since the video became viral on social media platforms, the keyboard warriors are busy questioning the moral values of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.

There were a number of netizens who came out expressing their own views over the incident.

“A girl in proper hijab is also enjoying the love scene and making its video. That’s diversity! I support the couple and their way to express their love. Jeetay raho,” wrote one social media user. 

Another social media user shared: “Seeing tweets about students being expelled over an innocent display of affection. Have not seen anything inappropriate in the videos being shared. Seems like joy & love are banned in Pakistan. Hope the admin reconsiders this unnecessarily harsh action.”

Another came out saying, “Morals of youth have been depicted in the recent happening at UOL. This is what has been imparted to youth in academic institutions. @JamiatPK is indeed a blessing for the nation that discourages such acts and abstains youth from vulgarity.”

 

It seems like the proposal has gone the other way on the social media and #UOL is the most trending topic on Twitter at the moment of filing this news item.  Such proposals are not acceptable within Pakistani society as many came out deeming this act as disgraceful.

The Internet seems to be divided over their opinion of the public display of affection:
