No hugging, we are Muslims!!

No hugging please, we are Muslims – this was Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s message in hitting out at such actions being promoted by certain TV reality shows and programmes.

This is not a question of young or old people hugging. This is about religion. It is forbidden in the religion, he stressed.

Najib made these remarks when opening the Malaysia Youth Council’s 55th Annual General Meeting at the Langkawi Exhibition and Exposition Centre.

With such reality shows attracting large audiences, he said the programmes should instead be helping spread moral values.

Hugging scenes are not suitable. They must sing decent songs, and must act decently, he said.

He lauded Akademi Fantasi 3 winner Mawi for calling on youths to shun drugs during the recent finals of the event, which attracted a large TV audience and 12 million SMS votes.

Government programmes could not attract such a large audience.
Even Umno programmes cannot attract as many SMS, he noted.

We want to look into how we can capitalise on such programmes to help instil good values among the younger generation, he said.
