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 -

These girls can do what they want because i can't judge them because i don't know them ! I let Allah to judge because he's the only one who has this right !! Personally, I'm muslim, and never, i will let my favorite artiste to give me a hug ! Like I'm a BTS fan, but i'm also muslim, and Islam is way more important for me than a Boys band ! I can understand that girls like them so much, but consider them more important than islam ? It's how i see all the comments of muslim in this video ! One other time, I'm not talking about the girls of the video ! Like, I really don't understand the people who are like "I'm muslim and if it was BTS i'll do the same", "I'm muslim and if it was EXO i'll kiss them" ! Guys, it's my opinion, but in the islam religion we can't have contact, like really, with a boy (for a girl) and girl (for a boy) ! So why you don't want to respect the "rules" ? Okay, Allah is merciful, but, that's doesn't mean that you can do what's you want and then always apologize and say that "Allah is merciful", it's a no sense ! And the world don't work like that ! Maybe you don't care, but you can't go to paradise with this state of mind ! In my school there is always guys who are trying to make hug with me, they are my classmates, sometimes my friends, but that's not mean that i will let them do what they want ! I just push them away ! And all muslims there should do that ! And if you do that, there is no reason to hug some person (your favorite group) and to not hug some other person (in my case : my classmates) ! So you shouldn't hug your favorite artist ! It's my point of view ! And you just can say to them, I really like you, your personality and your music, but I'm sorry, I'm muslim and can't accept to make a hug, because it's inappropriate ! PS : that's my point of view of muslim of the new generation, (16 yo), and i can understand that some people are not O.K. with me !

I'm Muslim, and seriously I understand it may be against Islam to hug a stranger that is a boy, but seriously calm down they don't know that, and B1A4 don't know this, the girls should have told them. Come on man. I would have like, did these cool traditional greeting in most Asian places with bowing down I like that because I think it's cool. These girls should have done that.

OK hold up. It is the Muslim girl's choice if she hugged the Korean idol right? _she_ doesn't look like she's complaining. Don't go blaming the Koreans for hugging them when those girls had no problem with it.

Whuttt? That's absurd. That's called fan service not molestation dayum these people. I respect the rule of the islam. But let's not blame the boys for that. They are unaware of the situation. They are just showing love to their fans. This BBC people do know how to make news like that. #disappointed And seriously feminine looking??? Go kill your self

Look, im muslim and I would have rejected it too.But like honestly who would not want to hug theyre fave idol like thats our thing we cant touch boys who are not related or married to us unless they are family!!! Even for young girls like them! BTW They were probably picked out by them(B1A4)or they came out by themselves! Like how and I mean HOW can we muslims reject the offer we cant just leave them hangging on stage till someone comes up on stage!!!?? So we cant blame the girls,B1A4 or muslims cause its basicly no ones fault. Cause the girls were just doing theyre job as a muslim. B1A4 is innocent because they dont know anything about theyre culture!!! SO BANA DO NOT BE OFFENDED!!!

Oh My God.. What's with the, "I'm a muslim and when i meet them, i'll probably just hug them. or am I going to hell just because a hug?". You guys are like a country who doesn't appreciate it's own culture. I'm ARMY, and someday if I get to meet BTS, I'll tell them proudly and respectfully that I'm a muslim, so please respect my religion and believes. I think as a human being, they won't do anything that hurt me as a muslim. And guys.. if you treat your own religion that way, how can you hope for non-muslims to like your religion? Even you, yourselves don't like your religion.

No one is at fault here. You can't blame the guys or the girls. The B1A4 guys didn't know about how we muslim girls couldn't touch a dude and I'm pretty sure that the girls were just excited and couldn't do anything else but to just stand still and got star-strucked by the gorgeous beings. Think about it, those girls were probably chosen to get up on the stage. It wouldn't be polite if they suddenly try to avoid them or distancing them selves from the guys. We girls are all the same, muslim or not. So don't you guys critisize both of the said people. Everybody makes mistakes.

What the hell is this. I also had hugged members of my bias group. Like if it was tae, gosh who knows what happened 😂 I had hugged him until he squeezes (yes, joke for everyone who takes this serious). I'm a Muslim & even I can totally understand why they hugged them omg. I swear if I had hugged one boy, even on a stage with 73883 ppl watching us my mum would be sooo mad omg but, maybe that was a last chance to do it so, I'm sorry mum I'm not that innocent as you think.

Islamically, sorry boys but listen to this, girl are allowed to hug boys if they have not started their period if they havent passed puberty and as u can see those girl they look quite young so im sure they havent started bit if they did they did step a bit back but still im sure they knew but B1A4 dont know the islamic law so u cant blame them :))

Im sorry. What? This is the most ridicolous thing ive ever heard. So apparently if a muslim girl hugs a kpop artist its called molestation? What is wrong with people these days? Meeting a kpop idol is one of the rarest things that international fans get to do, i would have hugged the bts members if they were there. Its not you who would be able to tell me or muslims where we will be after we die. Only allah. So please dont act like you know everything.

tbh my opinion is....... yes it haram in islam, but why the organiser let it happened? B1A4 didnt know about it. YES it is the girls fault too. Arent the malay actor and actress.... are muslim too? why they are touching each other on drama? interesting right? netizens keep saying bad about kpop ok then.. what are going on with malaysia music industry..? singers wear a sexy gown? dyed their hair? wait why the goverment didnt do anything? in drama they are hugging?? come on.. dont blame peoples.... open you eyes widely and compare... Maybe kpop artist didnt do any activities anymore cuz of this. kpop artist are not muslim so yeah they can wear sexy gown dyed their hair.. touching even kissing in drama. why keep blaming kpop?

Hope Korean culture will change Malaysian youth culture. Islam is backwards and they need to give freedom to women. Muhammad had like 13 wives and one of them was Aisha, the 6 year old bride of Muhammad. If Muhammad had 13 wives and dozens of sex slaves, why can't these Malaysian muslim girls simply hug kpop singers? The hypocrisy of Muslim men is just unbearable.
