She initially received attention from the public when her tahnik ceremony opened room for criticism as the country was still under the rules of the Movement Control Order. Many thought that the celebrity was being insensitive, with most Malaysians still waiting for an opportunity to host gatherings and travel back to their hometowns to see their loved ones.

Many were also left feeling dissatisfied to see a few guests given permission to cross the border just to attend the ceremony.

Tok Ti on the other hand, sees the criticism as a blessing from God, sharing an Instagram story saying she’s blessed with pahala percuma during the month of Ramadan.



Authorities have reportedly already taken the statements from the 8 individuals involved in the ceremony, including the organizer in regards to the breach of the Conditional Movement Control Order SOP. Even Malaysia’s favourite celebrity has been ‘cancelled’ showing that Malaysians want public figures to lead by example. Do you guys think it’s the right move?


The issue became of the SOP breach became apparent when Twitter user @FiqhTabayyun  shared screenshots of Instagram and Facebook posts of the tahnik ceremony.



The taḥnīk ceremony is an Islamic ceremony of touching the lips of a newborn baby with honey, sweet juice or pressed dates. The affair raised the ire of netizens, who weren’t very happy to see the photos of the event. Especially so with the evident lack of precautions.



This user said: “So cringe watching this, many are touching the baby without a mask, in the middle of a pandemic. No. Nope.”



This user said: “Hope PDRM will fine Tokti (Siti Nurhaliza) and her family.. before this tahnik issue there were a lot of events that they’ve done but no action.. go ahead and stalk Tokti’s IG.”



As they said, this isn’t the 42-year-olds first apparent breach of SOPs. Prior to this, the Malaysian singer was called out for hosting a crowd after she delivered her second child in the hospital.

SOPs guidelines are important. The virus is no joke. Despite this news, we do hope Malaysians continue to practice SOPs regardless of what others do. Stopping the virus is a mass effort and every effort counts.
