According to reports on local daily Al Watan, a literature student from King Faisal University (KFU) was dismissed for filming fellow students without their knowledge. The video was then uploaded to social networking sites, last Wednesday.
In the video, a woman professor was seen interacting with female students in the university hall. The university received complaints from the guardians of the students and were asked to investigate the matter.
The university said that it was its duty to protect the privacy of students and ensure their moral behaviour. Even though iPads are allowed into the university, students are warned not to use them in inappropriate ways.
A committee formed to investigate the incident identified the culprit and dismissed her. This decision will prevent the student from applying to other universities in the Kingdom.
