Raja Bomoh conducts ritual to 'protect' Malaysia from North Korea

Malaysia's very own Dr Strange is back.

This time, the Sorcerer Supreme was seen conducting a ritual at a beach to 'protect' Malaysia from a North Korean nuclear attack. 

In a video uploaded onto Youtube by The Star Online yesterday (Mar 12), Ibrahim Mat Zin, who calls himself Raja Bomoh Sedunia Nujum VIP with the title of Datuk Mahaguru, can be seen wearing a business suit at a beach.

Together with three assistants, they stand near the shore with five bamboo cannons, a carpet, two coconuts, a bowl of seawater and a pair of sticks used as binoculars, as the shaman recites prayers and splashes water. 

At the end of the ritual, he then drops two coconuts into the water.  

According to The Star Online via AsiaOne, he said: "This time, the ritual is to protect Malaysia from any threat or attack from other countries especially North Korea. 

"Besides that, the ritual is also to soften the North Korean Supreme Leader's heart so he will release the 11 Malaysians immediately and resolve this (Kim Jong Nam assassination) situation," he added.

He also explained that the bamboo cannon is symbolic, and that the ritual was not meant to provoke anyone. Instead, he said that it was conducted as a cautionary measure to make sure the conflict would be resolved soon.

The shaman first made headlines two years ago when he conducted two rituals at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport in an effort to locate the missing Malaysia Airlines Boeing plane. A Malaysian paper, Bernama, reported that he has over 50 years of experience as a bomoh.
