Communications Minister Fahmi Fadzil has asked the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) to take appropriate action regarding a video clip uploaded by cosmetics entrepreneur Aliff Syukri Kamarzaman.

Fahmi said he had received various comments from social media users, requesting action to be taken regarding the video clip, which has caused discomfort among the public.

“I have watched part of the uploaded video, and I have requested MCMC to investigate this matter and take appropriate action.

“However, at the same time, many may have taken note of Aliff Syukri’s decision not to upload the full video. For now, we leave it at that,” he told reporters at the Media Practitioners Appreciation with Fahmi last night.

Aliff Syukri has once again sparked controversy by uploading a teaser of his latest Aidilfitri song, titled “Love Raya”, on his personal Instagram page on Sunday, which depicted scenes considered by many as inappropriate.

However, after facing criticism from social media users, the cosmetics entrepreneur has since deleted the video and issued an apology.

Fahmi advised content creators and social media influencers to produce content suitable for all age groups, especially children.

“We need to think harder about the content we produce, considering that we do not know if the viewers are 90 years old, 19 years old, or nine years old,” he said.

Fahmi expressed the government’s concern about content which could have negative effects, especially on children aged 13 and below.

“Currently, social media platforms take a hands-off approach; they simply put vague verification methods in place where anyone can lie about their age,” he said.

He added that he will once again hold meetings with social media platform operators, to ensure that social media platforms are safe to use, or not used by children aged 13 and below.
