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 -

The title should be 'K-Pop hugs attract critism to Malaysian- typical-hater-kpop' those years korean waves are not big in Malaysia. I hope the one that creates the molested topic regret this really bad.AND stop puttin blame on muslim because this is all Malay culture which you can't hugs random man. And I'm sorry on behalf of Malaysian to all muslim all over the world to cause the fuss.

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?

it wasn't their fault tho, they didn't knew, I think it was the girls who needed to say that they can't hug them it was their choice to not tell them

Perhaps Kpop groups should boycott Malaysia? The countries are unfortunately influenced by those wahabbi saudi dogs that wants to turn it to the next Syria. Come to Vietnam instead. Forget about Indonesia or Maylaysia. Nothing in common anyway.

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.

I get what they mean about respecting their culture and stuff but if they got the Islamic girls consent then their is no argument. I don't care what your religion is, they are fully capable of managing their own bodies and should be able to choose whether or not they can be hugged. it is their body, not anyone else's, let them be

As a Muslim I had always wondered "Is it wrong for me to love kpop and the boy groups?" But I have met so many Muslim girls who love kpop just as much as I do There is nothing wrong with listening to kpop and following these groups We are not selling ourselves to them so we are doing no wrong It's probably a once in a lifetime chance for them to be able to do that so there is no point in criticising them The only person who can criticise us and these girls is Allah

Damn, saying B1A4 molested the girl is way too much. They are from korea for god's sake, of course they doesn't know the culture and the religion rules. They only gave her a fanservice hug. Since the girl know that it is forbidden then its the girl job to say no. The girl can just say "no, I can't touch a male" or refuse to go up the stage

I know myself that I'm not a great muslim but even I won't agree to go up on stage if there was skinship involved no matter who much I love my bias. I even said no to hold hands with my crush for my dance assignment. And I was 11 at the time, these girls are probably around their teens to mid 20s. So don't blame B1A4, don't blame Islam, *blame the immature muslim girls*.

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.”

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.
