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

In addition, Fahmi said he received various responses from social media users who asked for action to be taken regarding the section of the video clip which caused uneasiness among the community.

"I have watched part of the video that has been uploaded and I have asked the MCMC to look into this matter and take appropriate action... but at the same time, many may take note of Datuk Seri Aliff Syukri's decision not to upload (the full clip) of the video."

"For now, let's leave it first," he told reporters at the Media Practitioner Appreciation Ceremony with Fahmi here tonight. In case you didn’t know, Aliff Syukri once again caused controversy when he uploaded a clip of the latest Aidilfitri song titled 'Love Raya' on his personal Instagram page Sunday which featured an indecent scene.

The cosmetics entrepreneur has however deleted the video and apologized after receiving criticism from social media users. Fahmi also advises content creators and social media influencers to produce content that is suitable for all ages, especially children.

"We need to think more deeply about the content we produce as to whether it is appropriate considering that at this time, we do not know (whether) those watching the content are 90 years old, 19 years old or nine years old. Currently, social media take a hands-off attitude, that means anyone can easily lie about their age,"

Moreover, he said the government was concerned about content that could have a negative impact, especially on children under 13 years of age. Therefore, Fahmi will once again meet with the operator of the social media platform shortly to ensure that it is safe for children under 13.
