In one video, some members of the audience can clearly be seen not wearing their face masks while participating in the mosh pit.

According to a statement by Batu Pahat Police Chief Ismail Dollah, the “Majlis Riuh Keluarga Malaysia” event that took place in Ayer Hitam was organised by the Communications and Multimedia Ministry (KKMM).

Its minister, Datuk Seri Annuar Musa was said to have officiated the event while he was campaigning for the Johor state election.

But Malaysiakini noted that when the minister was there, the event wasn’t as wild.

A source within the ministry also told Malaysiakini that they were letting the police handle the situation.

Investigations are underway in accordance with Rule 16 of the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Act 1988 (Act 342).
