A TEENAGE couple were found sleeping together inside a mosque in Kedah, Malaysia, shocking local villagers with their brazen act, Harian Metro reported.
The duo, aged 16 and 17, were discovered by a mosque official who went to Masjid Al-Falah in Kampung Sungai Daun Atas, near Yan, for subuh prayers at about 5am on Sunday.
There was body contact but the two were fully clothed and they were not embracing, said Baharom Taib, 76. He saw the couple when he switched on the lights.
He woke them up before calling the imam. “Their behaviour is an embarrassment to the people here. It has tainted the house of God, more so that they slept in the praying area,” he said.
The boy, upon questioning, said he had bumped into his female friend earlier that day. They rode on his motorcycle before they felt sleepy and decided to stop by at the mosque to rest.
A police report was lodged at the Guar Chempedak station.
