On Monday (10.03.2014), renowned local bomoh (Malay for shaman) Ibrahim Mat Zin, who is known as Raja Bomoh Sedunia Nujum VIP, touched down at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) to performed rituals to “locate” the missing Beijing-bound Malaysia Airlines jet MH370.
The ritual, which invovled bamboo 'binoculars' and a fish trap, was performed at the entrance and managed to draw a crowd of curious onlookers.
According to Ibrahim, who holds the title of Datuk Mahaguru, the missing MH370 has been hijacked by elves and is currently suspended in mid-air or has crashed into the ocean.
After an 'unsuccesful' attempt, Ibrahim and several of his assistants returned to KLIA on Tuesday (11.03.2014), this time performing a ritual using two coconuts, a mystic cane and a 'magic carpet' to "weaken the elves".
Ibrahim's latest stunt was ridiculed by many, with Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin calling for his arrest and PKR leader Anwar Ibrahim calling it a national embarassment.
Of course, Netizens were quick to spoof Ibrahim's rituals:
