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 -

that's just ridiculous. they just got one hug from their favourite artist! it's no big deal, plus the girls aren't even married so why can't they hug them? that's how they treat their fans all the time! it's not like the girls got sexually harassed and molested. IT'S. JUST. A. DAMN. HUG.

All of idols during fanmeeting are doing their best to give fans the best fanservice, just like BTS, i saw a video like a roleplaying with their fans they're also doing that thing (hugging, leaning closer) that's a part of fan meeting and sometimes we don't know other cultures and the girl should stop the member if she doesn't want to be touch..

I'm a Muslim girl as well and I don't know what would I do if my idols came to here. It's their choice, yeah it's forbidden to hug a guy unless you're married but it's a choice. I'm a Muslim yes but I'm not perfect, we all have sins. Sometimes you can't control your will, and nobody can blame them, it's just not anyone's job. Please respect.

This is so disgusting.. I'm a Muslim too. and besides that, I wear hijab too.. But If we react maturely it was not a crime or sin or anything. atleast in my eyes.. Because It was just a praising and innocent hug anyone can get from their Idols. So it wasn't idol's or that girl's Mistake.. even I saw that with a smile. That's ridiculous though :3

They simply treated them as other fans All are equal But as a Muslim I should say should have shaken hands instead of hugging but when it's a human being unintentionally activated mind that When you happen to see the people you love from your heart or things automatically we either would hug cry shout or become aggressive to get it Same case here We are Muslims but the first thing is that we are human too just like you The difference is the religion not the body parts or we are not aliens Come on it's not an issue Your mind completely switched off when the things you don't expect happens so It's not an issue Let them do what they want Plus enjoy life and let others enjoy too

I am not judging. They decide themselves. But that's actually a triple haram: 1) making an idol other than Allah 2) hugging a strange guy 3) that is a gayish guy Be I that girls and made that mistake, I'd take punishment graciously. Because I need to pay for this.

What is wrong with this country the girls are free to do what they want to do it is not some governments that is going to tell them if they can hug someone or not!!!is malaysia one of those countries where women dont have the same rights as men??remember girls whatever happens you are human beings first therefore you should fight for rights being a muslim or a non muslim does not give other people the right to tell you what you should do or how you should behave you are free and you have the right to do whatever you want with your body and mind,dont let some stupid religion ,man ,race or creed tell you what you have to do !!life is to short to be dictated

Hey is not that they touch her private part or any part just a hug you guys should not blame the idols there are not wrong she could have say " no we cannot hug is muslim rule" so dont blame the kpop idols maybe when they ask who want to come up on stage they say they want when they know that is not good to hug people around so better wat h this carefuĺly before saying that the kpop idols is wrong. Is not that i like the kpop idols so i let them win. this is just that you need to use your brain i am malay so i know and the part where people say they molested, oh hell no.domt. acusse people any how

What?? Like srsly what?? I'm a Muslim myself, and it was an honest mistake. I feel so bad for the Kpop group shown here. They didn't know! Also, the girls being hesitant or giggling are them just fangirling! The kiss on the forehead could have been avoided if the girl said no, and again, B1A4 just made an honest mistake! If the people just stopped being so harsh on a KOREAN group (cough, not MALAYSIAN), they would just learn to be less touchy with the girls and go on with their lives. And this is called being molested? They are OVERREACTING!! *breathes heavily* I feel so bad for B1A4 and the girls featured. This didn't have to be so harsh.

Cmon there is nothing wrong in hugging the guys I mean they are celebrity and as a fan u can show admiration to the celebrity... I mean u can't take these hugs wrongly and one who thinks that way is the sinner not these girls or the Kpop who just hugged there fans... plz think before u tweet or comment becuz it might hurt someone for no reason... If I was there I would have hugged the Kpop star tighter becuz  I know I m hugging a celebrity who is famous and renown becuz of its hard work. These girls weren't molested actually they were comforted by these hugs.... I wish Kpop visits Malaysia again and this I really wanna hug them... At least once in a lifetime I would be able to experience that joy not just by hugging but feeling the singers inner emotion while singing and admiring there hard work at least they deserve a beautiful hug from there fans don't they so plz don't bring religion in these kind of things please I m begging you please

Ok, I’m a Muslim. Even though I really want to hug them, I can’t. Well, of course we muslim won’t get treated the same way non-muslim get but what can we do? Everything that happens has it’s own benefits and non-benefits. So, if I’m the one who is on stage, I would nicely tell them that we can’t hug or not. That makes things better. I’m sure they will understand. 😊

Muslim girls are not afraid of hugging. Our god, Allah is the only thing we should be afraid of. Our Religion Islam, doesnt allow us to hug boys/men which ia not our family member (Same goes to the male). We just love our religion's rules because we all know that every rules have the benefits behind them. Well I can say that its not the kpop Idols fault that they hug the girls.. For me its the girls fault. They could have said "No, sorry i cant hug u" or "sorry, i cant touch u" or whatever. Maybe they are too excited+obsessed to B1A4 but whatever it is. The past is the past

There's one way to avoid this thing from happened. Im a Muslim and truthfully i hate this kind of thing like hugging man who were not legal for you to touch. Its forbidden in Islam. And yeah, who wouldnt want to be hugged by their idol btw? The conclusion is, if you want to go to your idol concert, dont wearing hijab. Im not saying this to encouraged you to open hijab but, wearing hijab is like you have carry Islam name on you, and it would dirty the Islam name if you expected to have this kind of affection. And the idol also need to know basic about a country before they held a concert there. Im not being rude but isnt it a must thing to do before all of us go to a country? Am i not right? Please comment if my statements are not true. After all, this is just my opinion

Seriously? People who got offended over this need to take a chill pill because they're over reacting :/ SEXUAL HARRASSMENT? MOLESTATION?! Don't make me laugh. The girls AGREED to it and b1a4 would probably lack knowledge about the Islamic religion. If anything, the Organizers, who are LOCALS, should understand the Islamic religion and should have thought of a better program :/ I'm honestly disappointed in netizens and all those crappy news websites, who blew up over this and actually put the blame on b1a4. Like wtf seriously? Just because you have no news to publish doesn't mean you can spread IRRESPONSIBLE JOURNALISM?! I feel like most of the people blaming b1a4 do not even bother looking up what actually happened. I didn't see so many of you pissed or getting hyped up when Lee Se young and the female staff of SNL Korea actually MOLESTED B1A4? I didn''t see any of these news sites posting videos or articles criticising her when there was ACTUAL evidence of her having touched them in inappropriate places in public!? She obviously didn't get b1a4's permission before she touched their crotch, but that's okay??? Shouldn't this be a bigger news to report on?? Why are people are so triggered and offended by such a small issue and not triggered over an actual case of sexual harassment???
