Ibrahim Mat Zin, otherwise known as Malaysia’s “Raja Bomoh Sedunia”, is at it again.
This time, he’s volunteering his “services” to protect us from a North Korean nuclear attack.
Ibrahim, who calls himself who calls himself Raja Bomoh Sedunia Nujum VIP with the title of Datuk Mahaguru, first made national headlines when he stepped forward in March 2014 to “help locate” the ill-fated Malaysian Airlines flight MH370. Armed with several assistants, “Zam-Zam” water, coconuts, and a “magical” walking stick and carpet, he conducted rituals at the Anjung Tinjau of the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).
Pictures and videos of his “magical” session quickly went viral and spawned various memes. He even became a subject of fake news.
Recently, a new 3-minute 18-second video of Ibrahim conducting a ritual on a beach surfaced. The clip features the “Raja Bomoh Sedunia” and his entourage ankle-deep in water with coconuts (yes, again), 5 pairs of sticks (used as binoculars), 5 bamboo cannons, a carpet, and a bowl of seawater.
Ibrahim can be seen reciting prayers during the ritual before throwing the coconuts into the water. There’s even a disclaimer that cautions viewers against conducting the ritual at home.
“This time, the ritual is to protect Malaysia from any threat or attack from other countries especially North Korea,” SMASANEWS quoted Ibrahim as saying, adding that the bamboo cannon is symbolic.
Ibrahim also urged all Malaysians, regardless of race, religion, and political affiliation to jointly defend national dignity in the face of the threat of North Korea.
In case you missed it, North Korea barred Malaysians from leaving the republic in retaliation to Malaysia expelling North Korean ambassador Kang Chol over the handling of the assassination of Kim Jong Nam. 2 Malaysians, Stella Lim and Nyanaprakash Muniandy of the United Nations’ World Food Programme, were allowed to leave North Korea last Thursday (9th March 2017), while 9 others are still stranded there.
