bomoh (the Malay word for shaman) who created a stir with his appearance at the KLIA on Monday and made predictions about the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 was at it again today.
Ibrahim Mat Zin, who is known as Raja Bomoh Sedunia Nujum VIP, with the title of Datuk Mahaguru, was assisted by several assistants.
Dressed in lounge suits, they carried out rituals with the use of “Zam-Zam” water, two coconuts, and an “enchanted” walking stick and carpet.
They were show stoppers as a crowd formed to observe them.
"The purpose of the rituals is to weaken the bad spirits so that the rescuers can find the plane if it indeed had crashed," Ibrahim told reporters.
Ibrahim said the rituals were “time tested" and had been used by his ancestors.
He said he was carrying out these rituals on his own, despite earlier reports that he had been invited by high ranking government officials.
On Monday, Ibrahim had gone to KLIA and performed a different ritual at the KLIA entrance that had involved “bamboo binoculars” and a fish trap hook.
He said from the ritual he had carried out on Monday, his eyes started hurting and his vision turned black.
“This meant that the plane was still in the air, or has crashed into the sea,” he declared.
The Raja Bomoh, who has 50 years of experience, became popular after offering his service to search for victims in several major cases, including in the Highland Tower tragedy, Kuala Dipang flood and the Mona Fendy murder trial. – March 12, 2014.
