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 -

This is what is going to happen in Europe and America soon, and i wanna blow up all the liberals first before blowing up the muslims. Because the country is in chaos because of the liberals who have failed to protect he land and its culture.

Dear Muslim Brothers and sisters, As a Muslim, i read in the Holy Bible, John 8:1-11, A Woman Caught in Adultery. Since then I never stopped running to the Throne of Mercy = Jesus (Yeshua) 8 Jesus returned to the Mount of Olives, 2 but early the next morning he was back again at the Temple. A crowd soon gathered, and he sat down and taught them. 3 As he was speaking, the teachers of religious law and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in the act of adultery. They put her in front of the crowd. 4 “Teacher,” they said to Jesus, “this woman was caught in the act of adultery. 5 The law of Moses says to stone her. What do you say?” 6 They were trying to trap him into saying something they could use against him, but Jesus stooped down and wrote in the dust with his finger. 7 They kept demanding an answer, so he stood up again and said, “All right, but let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone!” 8 Then he stooped down again and wrote in the dust. 9 When the accusers heard this, they slipped away one by one, beginning with the oldest, until only Jesus was left in the middle of the crowd with the woman. 10 Then Jesus stood up again and said to the woman, “Where are your accusers? Didn’t even one of them condemn you?” 11 “No, Lord,” she said. And Jesus said, “Neither do I. Go and sin no more.”

Such is Islam that an act of violence is less a sin than to hug an individual of the opposite gender who is not your husband or wife.

come on guyz people make mistakes not religion so I think there is no mistake of the Boyz and not even the girls. cuz there are many girls from different regions they were never criticized for doing something like this so why Muslim girls. plzzzzz. try to be happy when others are happy I swear to God that you will feel better.dont judge people nor they'll do to you

I don't know why only Muslim girls are considered bad doing something certain. Though the whole world has boyfriends and the girl was so small l. this would leave people thinking that Muslim girls can not be a fan of any guy. islam is that strick at all

I think its time for Malaysia to start a revolution to separate religion and politics. These girls don't deserve to go to court for something so trivial.
oh comon !!! im mouslim, and if they re girls dont want to be touch or molest they re should not up on the stage! and if i dont i do not i think is not the fault of the band in my opinion... peace
'oberdamujigae' 4 weeks ago
molested omg all they did was a friendly hug abd not that tight (at least from what I see here) though the girl that let them kiss her forehead, no not good. for me honestly I won't want a hug, grabbing each other's hands would be plentiful enough

This is really stupid??? If the girls gave their consent then they didn't do anything wrong. Nobody did anything wrong here except the conservative Muslims hating on these girls' decisions. I'm sure God didn't ban friendship or intimacy between any gender. As a religious, practicing Muslim I would give my Kpop idols a hug because it's friendly and there's no bad intention so what's wrong?

They were just treating their Muslim fans the same way they treat their other fans. What if they didn't hug them, people would have been so upset and would have called them racist or islamophobic. That's not their fault.

OK guys this is not cool... it's not the band's fault for anything... If the girls didn't like it or if it was bad in their culture (which by the way I'm a Muslim) they shouldn't have went on the stage. and the members didn't harm any of them... the fact that not even the girls reported that, Is what's so cruel and unfair.. pipe down ppl.. if you think about it, it's actually the girls faults for going up on stage.
Mate these people should be happy kpop ifols come to their country. LEGIT NO ONE HAS COME TO THE UNITED KINGDOM. I WASNT EVEN AN EXO FAN WHEN THEY CAME A FEW YEARS AGO😭😭😭

wow.. being molested? I'm Muslim and Malaysian too, but these girls have to stay in our religion lane. We can't touch other men that aren't related to us. it's wrong to do so. But saying they were molested by B1A4??? Malaysians, please stay in your lane, they did nothing wrong. The girls could've just said no.. ain't going to the fan meeting enough?

First of all it's not their fault since that they don't know much about muslim culture Second , If I were her I would tell them that it's wrong to touch a muslim girl (especially if she was wearing a hijab) because of the Islamic Religion rules

So, there is this certain law only exist in Malaysia. When a non-muslim man specificlly KPOP IDOLS hugs a Muslim woman = HARAM When a Muslim man hugs a Muslim woman = SWEET, ITS OKAY, SO ADORABLE, I SHIP 😧😧 Yes, of course having any SKINSHIP with NON MAHRAM is HARAM but that doesnt apply in Malaysia tho. Many of the Malaysian's quite dislike the Korean cultures that's growing quickly in the country. I understand that we have our own culture and if some cannot accept the changes, it's fine. But, I cant accept if anyone didn't complaint when the Muslims themselves hugging, holding hands or KISSING each other foreheads. The girls hugged by B1A4 were given counselling if I'm correct. So, why not our local actors and actresses, who were completely STRANGERS , hugs and holding hands, acting like everything is OKAY? Shouldn't these actors will be given any counsellings too? Okay, maybe it looks like I want to protect MY KPOP IDOLS but I'm saying the truth here. Whenever we, the FANGIRLS, try to protect our idols, we would receive all kinds of hatred and curses. Most of us were already used to it but some are not. The thing is WE ARE NOT STUPID. WE KNOW WHAT IS RIGHT AND WHAT IS WRONG TO DO IN ISLAM. THANK YOU FOR THE ADVICES BUT THERE'S NO NEED FOR THE CURSES. (sorry for my grammar)
