A Muslim scholar has been expelled from his seminary in Lebanon after a video of his piano playing, posted online, drew criticism from conservatives who felt it was undignified behavior for a man of the cloth, he said. Shiite Sayyed Hussein al-Husseini, 38, a keen pianist and amateur poet, posted the footage to challenge the traditional image of a religious scholar.
