A video of a Korean pop band embracing teenage girls in Malaysia has attracted heavy criticism and triggered a debate over the behaviour of young Muslim women in the country.
Several girls, giggling and sometimes hesitant, can be seen acting out scenes from Korean dramas with different members of the band, all of which end in friendly hugs. A band member also kisses one girl on the top of her head.
Islamic authorities for Kuala Lumpur, where the meeting took place, have said they will investigate the incident for possible violations of Sharia law, and have called on the girls involved to come forward to assist in the inquiry.

The original video of K-pop band B1A4 -

Kpoop faggot dajjal will burn in hell
the thing is... 1. they are just hugging the shoulder not embracing and kissing or whatever so its not molesting 2. the title 'young muslim girl molested by kpop boys' is too harsh. 3. they do not understand some of the islam laws so they dont know whats wrg and whats ok 4. its the girl's fault. she should have said that we cant hug or something. 5. im too mad JDJSJXNJS

Really I like kpop boy bands a lot, they are really cool but we have restrictions as hijabis. Guys aren’t allowed to touch girls like that unless they are a relative...

I know that B1A4 actually didn't know about Muslim fans in Malaysia but it's not their fault. It's the girl fault because she could've said no we cannot hug instead of just being quiet.I know we cannot judge people but no matter who we like so much , we cannot break the Islam rules. This is just my opinion so please don't get mad 😁😁

Its not fault of the girls bcz they expect them to respect their religion just like bts di! Most oeople know about muslims....hiw come they dont know!! Was it a coincidence that bts knew about it! Yewh but I agree molested took it too far! Yeah and maybe they werent exposed to muslim's religion ever but I hope that this kind of thing doesnt happen again! I think its no one's fault! Not the girl nor the kpop grp

I know this bad but I'm muslim and hugging is haram in our religion,I see people comment said"I'm muslim too but I would have hug them!"Another one is "I search,hugging is not haram.If you search in google,they can be false or true but if you search in Al quran its true.And one more thing if you want hug them so much and touch hand and stuff,you already forgot Allah.I'm saying this to protect my religion.And make sure they remember their god.Its not BTS fault.I also big fan of BTS.Its the girl fault.

Well the girls weren't molested and you can't just say it was simply a hug. I mean, if u understand where I come from getting a hug from a guy would be a BIG issue since my parents a hella strict and plus I go to an Islamic school. SO, like how the hell am I supposed to go to a fan meet?! My parents will kill me. But, I'll put my religion and belief first. BTW, I don't even have to money to go to Korea or a fan meet. Lol

Then why the girls not saying NO to them (the boys) the girls just act to much if u understand wht i say i will say "lebay" and that mean act to much,korean is not problem and if touching muslim girls and muslim is not their tradition so they're don't know about touching muslim girl,so why u guys judge korean and not the girls? Sorry but if i be that girl i just say no to the boys cuz im muslim to,so please don't just look at the boy,take your eyes to the girls please :)

I'm Chinese (lol I know I don't have much to do with this) but I lived in an Islamic country my whole life (smh people thought it would be filled with terrorists) and they're nice people :( I didn't know YouTube would be so rude to Muslims... As a _chink_ (I don't come from china tho, does it count ?) I sincerely relate to them. And to every islamphobic (?) person, look at the comments, most Muslims don't see it as molestation, they still support bts.

the k pop artis not make any fault but our girls have to say no if they ask to hugs , coz our girls know what will happen after they do, so in my opinion this is fist case in Malaysia for K pop artis, but now all around world now how to respect other culture and all army and fans have to control their self when they meet their K pop artis please care about all people around , we whan our artis and fan have a good time and memories ...................for me make it as one of k all music , love song...and peace..tq

WTFFF they just treated them normally like everybody it's not their fault ... AND I'm a Muslim too, and i would probably give them a hug too and I think that they overreacted ....well some of them maybe don't like it but some like it so I don't understand why there a big problem for giving a hug to someone you like ... and the girl seemed not bothered so why are you people always like this ....

Religions that don't belong in Asia...why do my Asian people let religion tear them apart from each other, it's sad...there's already enough hatred that exists between Asian countries...And why is India considered Asian? Why is Middle East considered Asian? Asian people are so lost and confused...too many outside influences convoluting their minds and separating them from their true origins...

Maybe I am ignorant, but I see no issue. It was a friendly, welcoming hug. Such as a hug you would give a friend. It was a sexual or romantic gesture. These are men, those are teenage girls. I doubt either of them saw it in an inappropriate way. They were not treated as if they had a contagious illness, they were treated as happy, excited fans as they'd hold be. Using the world "molestation" is going much too far. I can understand a strict environment where a girl hugging a boy may not be allowed, but saying that the girl was molested...too far. At best, this is a cultural misunderstanding

I think that it depends on how strong of a muslim you are and what you want to do also not everyones perfect . This is a bit like when people talk about muslim girls wearing a scarf or not.

hug isnt a crime. islam is a strict religion as im muslim but i would even hug a hater bc i want to show some love and respect. so idk why this people say its forbidden. we muslims can do anything we want. if u love something go for it. dont let other muslims or muslim parents control u into becoming to religouse person and not to interact with a guy. we are all equal and we will share our love towards anyone

For hugging, I think it's rather normal. But, for kissing..why the girl accepted Baro's permission? That's really weird. She had supposed to reject kissing scene even though it was just on forehead.

I am a muslim and it is not bad for a guy to hug a girl. Like most of you guys said, if it were BTS I would hug them for TWO DAYS STRIAGHT PPLS! I just don't want ppl thinking that Muslims are so strict and all that everyone is different. Some are strict and some aren't. PLZ don't keep saying that it is bad for Kpop idols to just show that they love their Muslim fans. CUZ WHEN I ( IF I ) GO ON STAGE, OH FOR SURE I WANT BTS TO HUG ME!

I am Muslim and my kids wore hijabs and go to music concerts which is considered Haram. The Korean pop stars want to show their friendly appreciation for their fans. It was a mistake on the girls part to allow that hugging and touching and yes it does look bad on our Ummah. They should know better how to behave. However to say it's molestation is completely unacceptable and an injustice to the Korean pop stars. Having said that the Korean pop stars could have taken the time to familiarize themselves with the Indonesian culture and practice so as not to offend anyone. I am clearly saying no fault of the Korean pop stars. All of us will get excited over movie stars and pop stars. We all make mistakes.
