KUALA LUMPUR: "The case is settled and we hope Netizens will stop talking about it," said the husband of woman who was said to have made a religious school teacher, an ustazah, crawl in a classroom recently.
The ustazah is a teacher at a religious school in Parit 15, Hutan Melintang.
A video went viral in which the ustazah was seen getting on her hands and knees, before crawling in her classroom while the act was recorded by the mother of one of her students.
From the video, it is understood that the mother was unhappy that her child was made to crawl as punishment the day before. She then went to the school and asked the ustazah to crawl around the classroom while she recorded it.
The incident was said to have happened last week.
According to the woman's husband, the case is considered settled as his wife had apologised to the ustazah.
He said he was there in the meeting.
"We met and they apologised to each other. I hope people will stop talking about it and stop making the situation worse.
"We also hope Netizens would stop sharing the video, a complaint has been lodged with the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) for the video to be blocked," he said when met by Harian Metro today.
The ustazah when contacted also confirmed the matter has been resolved, and declined to comment further.
Meanwhile, Perak Islamic Religious Department director Datuk Mohd Yusof Husin said they had taken appropriate action on the matter.
He advised the public not to make things worse and to stop sharing the video, in the best interest of all parties.
