Businessman Papa Idola found himself in the middle of the spotlight this week after a TikTok video of him kissing his autistic younger brother circulated on the web, much to the dismay of local netizens.
Apparently, the issue also caught the attention of Tunku Mahkota Johor (TMJ), Tunku Ismail Idris. The royalty figure took to his Instagram Story to put the entrepreneur on blast.
“This is wrong! Enough is enough. Sicko!” the Johor Prince remarked. His Highness added, “To every parent out there, please educate your children about child sexual abuse. Teach your daughters, and especially your sons because they are often overlooked in this matter. Teach them what is right and what is wrong! Do not let outsiders or even relatives take advantage of them.”
Meanwhile, Caprice (real name Ariz Ramli) also took to his Instagram to share his two cents on the matter. According to the social media influencer, “Many netizens argued that the situation seems like child grooming and there are (legal) acts to protect the victims. It is against the law! If he grows up, he might think that kissing guys in the mouth is a common thing.”
“But what makes me less comfortable is the fact that they did that while sitting on a prayer mat, and holding the prayer beads. If we can’t differentiate what is haram (forbidden) and what is good on top of the mat, just imagine what else is happening out there,” the “Abang Nak Tegur” rapper further added.

In related news, the police are currently tracking down Papa Idola (full name Muhamad Norhisham Harun) to assist in the investigation. Assistant Director of the Sexual/Domestic Violence/Child Abuse of the Bukit Aman Crime Department, ACP Siti Kamsiah Hassan stated that the team is also tracking down the teenager and other witnesses. The investigation is carried out under the Sexual Offences Against Children Act.
