First they came for our cartoons now our hugs are in the firing line

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.



Islam is the religion of no cartoons and no hugs, no homosexuals, no women’s rights and no freedom of speech but they are apparently the religion of Peace if you ignore all the violence, massacres, stonings, hangings, amputations of hands and feet, floggings, acid in the face and the fact that Husbands are allowed to beat their wives whether or not they are 9 years old or 90.
