So, we are talking about Al-Azhar which is the most prestigious seat of Sunni Islamic learning in Egypt. This Monday, the institution wanted to expel a female student who hugged a young man on public. According to the officials, the girl was undermining the school's reputation. Her actions were filmed on video that also went viral very fast.
Well, Al-Azhar finally changed their decision, after the country's top Muslim cleric intervened in her favor. They promised to "reconsider the punishment". However, the girl still should be prevented from taking the first half of her exams.
