“No Sharp Object Was Used So How Is That Considered Suicidal?”—Netizens Defend Aina Abdul’s “Bleeding” AJL Performance

Allegedly the performance was seen to normalize suicide.

‘Anugerah Juara Lagu ke 34’ (AJL34) that was held on the grand stage of Axiata Arena, Bukit Jalil the other night had received such an overwhelming response from viewers until so many controversies erupted.

And one performance that had definitely became the talk of people was Aina Abdul’s performance which was allegedly claimed to deliver the incorrect message of self-hurt and even suicidal attempt.

It all started when a statement released by Public Health Malaysia claimed that Aina Abdul’s performance indirectly encourage or normalize the act of self-hurt and suicidal attempt towards individuals with unstable mental health. And in the same statement, Public Health Malaysia asked the public to report the act to CMCF.

“There was no act that shows the action of suicidal attempt, instead it is an artistic expression and symbolism to a heart that has been hurt and broken, which is what the song is all about”

— Aina Abdul.

Through her Instagram, the new and rising singer has released her response in order to clear out the air. According to her, as a Muslim she did not even have the slightest thought to show such concept in her performance as she still knows which is right and wrong according to the religion.

Aina had also stated that her performance was merely her artistic expression and a continuation to the plot line on ‘Sumpah’ music video.

Kenyataan Aina Abdul Dakwaan Persembahan Konsep Bunuh Diri. . Assalamualaikum wbt. . Astaghfirullah al adzim… Nauzubillah min zalik… Sebagai seorang wanita muslim, tak pernah terlintas di fikiran saya untuk melakukan konsep seperti yang didakwa. . Saya masih waras dan berpegang teguh kepada ajaran Islam. . Persembahan saya hanya sebuah ekspresi seni yang saya sampaikan atas pentas AJL34 dan ia merupakan kesinambungan kepada jalan cerita muzik video Sumpah. . Perkara ini saya sudah pun maklumkan sejurus selepas persembahan selesai di Instagram saya. . Persembahan tadi merupakan simbolik kepada hancurnya hati seorang wanita kerana menyesal dengan perbuatannya sendiri terhadap orang yang amat disayanginya. . Hati yang berdarah melambangkan kesakitan yang ditangggung oleh wanita itu selepas melukakan hati insan yang disayanginya. . Semua orang mempunyai pendapat berbeza dan ingin saya tegaskan sekali lagi, persembahan saya tidak menyentuh elemen seperti yang didakwa. . Ia langsung tiada kena mengena dengan dakwaan yang diperkatakan dan saya mohon maaf sekiranya terdapat salah faham yang timbul. . Saya harap dengan penjelasan ini dapat meleraikan segala kekusutan yang melanda. . Saya juga ingin mengucapkan tahniah kepada semua pemenang AJL34 dan semua team produksi. Berada di pentas AJL34 sudah membuatkan saya sangat bersyukur. . Sejujurnya, saya tak fikir mengenai menang atau kalah kerana pentas AJL34 merupakan permulaan saya menyerlahkan lagi bakat di persada seni. . Jutaan terima kasih saya ucapkan kepada peminat saya, @ainations yang tidak jemu menyokong. Anda semua kekuatan saya dan saya tak akan berhenti berusaha untuk me balas jasa anda semua. . Terima kasih kepada semua pihak yang menyokong perjalanan lagu Sumpah. Alhamdulillah. . .

When analyzed the state given by Public Health Malaysia, some netizens can’t help but disagree to the statement. First, netizens couldn’t find any inclusion of sharp objects or ‘weapons’ used on stage and was the ‘blood’ the only reason why it was labelled as suicidal attempt.

But one thing that still remains unknown is that why such statement given by a big organization was so unprofessional and emotional through the words used?
