After the video went viral, the administration of the University of Lahore(UOL) took strict action against the two students by expelling them from the university. The expulsion notice issued by the administration states all the rules and regulations to be followed in the university, also it claims that the couple failed to appear before a Special Disciplinary Committee.
People have so much to say about this trending topic on Twitter. In the opinion of some users, the University management needed to take action against them, since the couple was violating the local norms. Others believe that the students did not deserve to be expelled from the institution and the administration has overreacted. They argue that there was nothing inappropriate in a boy and girl showing endearment for each other in public. Some spoke up for the couple by saying that things like rape, domestic violence, and all other acts of immorality are acceptable in Pakistan but if a couple is daring enough to share their love for each other in Public, hatred is what they will have to face.

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. What kind of example are we setting here ? #CantExpelLove
