Shame On M’sians Who Are Using Telegram To Share Child Porn

Recently, this article from the MalayMail has been making rounds on the internet. Entitled, “Monsters among us: Malaysians are sharing child porn, rape videos on Telegram”  – WHAT? Although this article was dated 3 years back, it has definitely caught the attention of social media users.

How many of us are aware of such activity on Telegram? Boo Su-Lyn writes the videos contain captions like “slamming a 6 year-old” and “my daughter at 5” of grainy video where a man is seen having sex with a young girl.

We’re sick and disgusted that these videos are circulated on Telegram.

Social activist, Syed Azmi also exposed a local paedophile group on Telegram after receiving a Telegram screenshot of a chat group making sexually explicit remarks on a photo of young girl in swimsuit. There are 751 members in the group!

The MalayMail then decided to investigate if Malaysians were actively using the app to access child pornography. To their discovery, in just a few hours of creating an account and getting links of channels/groups, they found themselves in local porn channels that had thousands of explicit images and videos. There were adult women, teenage schoolgirls in uniforms, child pornography and videos of actual sexual assaults of rape. Telegram users, this illegal activity has been right under our nose!

Apparently, most of the members appeared to Malaysians and conversed in Malay language. While a few porno videos and pictures were also Malay.

Last year, Apple temporarily pulled Telegram from the App Store over distribution of child pornography through Telegram. In which, Apple made contact with Telegram’s team and authorities, including the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to address the violations.

If you’ve come across any explicit content especially on child pornography, do the right thing by making a report to Telegram and MCMC.
