Not Only #MH370, #Bomoh Is Trending Too

BBC said that “Bomoh” had been tweeted more than 200,000 times and been trending worldwide. However the appearance sentiment is shame. Seems that Malaysia had been put to shame with the inclusion of the Bomoh in an effort of searching the missing MH370. Bomoh in the malay language means shaman. By the way the ritual carried out by the Bomoh is against the teaching of Islam and considered as superstition and idoltry.

MH370 KJ tweeter

 

In the teaching of Islam it is more appropriate to perform the 2 rakaah Solah Hajat (as the botton right picture), a prayer requesting and hoping Allah bestow what is intended by the jemaah. Today Friday 14th March 2014 mosques throughout the country were requested to perform the Solat hajat after the compulsory Friday prayer.

MH Trending 2

 

Its only March and Malaysia made an inroad by having two words trending on tweeter. Earlier this year was the word “kangkung” or water spinach when the nation spoof the Prime Minister for asking Malaysians to praise the government when they are complaining of the rising cost of food.

Sarawak Report @sarawak_report tweeted “The world has been discovering a lot more about Malaysia since the drama of Flight MH370, resulting in many raised eyebrow.

The appearance of the Bomoh had been spoofed by many in Malaysia and even foreigner as posted on Facebook. Screen capture above shows.

Its a pity that the popularity of Bomoh in searching for the missing MH370 was reported made Malaysian in Egypt been derided.

Later in Parlaiment, Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim had also questioned who in Putrajaya had sanctioned the bomoh to conduct rituals inside KLIA to locate the missing jetliner making Malaysia laughing stock.

However, Datuk Seri Shahidan Kassim, minister in the prime minister’s department had denied claims that Putrajaya had hired the bomoh, adding that it was not a directive from the government. For information, the Bomoh did mention he was invited by a high ranking VIP to make his appearance. Who is he or she?

It is also a disgrace when Al Arabiya reported that Malaysia had resorted to using black magic; as a last resort and desperate move to locate the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH 370 and Malaysia is seen as a model Islamic nation.

A portal or blog called katakcomel.my has alleged that Raja Bomoh was paid RM1.8 million for his “stupid act”, all in the name of helping the government to locate the missing MAS Boeing 777. It’s like rubbing salt into the wounds of Malaysians and those with family members aboard the jet.

[10.30PM] – The Last Day of Malaysia Airline Passengers With Stolen Passports

By RACHEL KATZ and COLLEEN CURRY | Good Morning America

A man claiming to be the friend of two Iranians who used fake passports to board the missing Malaysia Airlines flight told ABC News that the men stayed at his home the night before the flight vanished.

Mohammad Mallaeibeasir told ABC News that he is an 18-year-old student living in Malaysia who went to high school with one of the men who is believed to have used a fake passport to board the missing flight. He said the other man was a friend of the friend’s, and the pair stayed at Mallaeibeasir’s the night before the flight took off.

Mallaeibeasir identified the men as Pouria Nour Mohammadi and Reza Devalar, both around age 18 or 19 and both from Iran. He said he went to high school with Pouria, but had not seen him for a couple of years.
They stayed with Mallaeibeasir and his roommate Friday night, and then Mallaeibeasir drove them to the airport, where they used stolen Italian and Austrian passports to board Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 on Saturday morning, he said.

The plane lost contact with air control and radar approximately an hour into its flight and disappeared without a trace. A massive search operation is under way for any sign of the plane in the waters between Malaysia and Vietnam.

Mallaeibeasir said he did not know the men were using fake passports until the news stories broke and Pouria’s mother called him and told him about it. Mallaeibeasir says he then called Malaysia Airlines and told them all of the information he knew.

Today Malaysian Police Chief Khalid Abu Bakar identified one of the two men with stolen passports as Pouria Nour Mohammad Mehrdad, 19, and said he was likely trying to enter Germany to seek asylum. His mother contacted authorities after he didn’t arrive in Frankfurt.

Interpol later identified the other man as Delavar Syed Mohammad Reza, 29.

Law enforcement sources told ABC news today that the men’s tickets were purchased by an Iranian man known as “Mr. Ali.”

Mallaeibeasir said that when Pouria and Reza were staying at his house, he heard them briefly talking to an “Ali” on the phone.

“The last night when they were in my home they were talking on the phone for a long time. They were talking in Persian, in their room, and I heard them say ‘OK Ali’ like that in Persian. I didn’t understand because it was like, five seconds. I went into the room to take water from my fridge and I came out and they said, ‘Be quiet, we’re talking.'”

Besides the hushed phone conversations, Mallaeibeasir said that the pair just hung out with him and his housemate and watched movies. Then Mallaeibeasir drove them to the airport.

“They stayed here only the last night before the flight. They were supposed to stay in Malaysia for three days but I think they stayed for one week,” Mallaebeasir said. “They were with me because I had a car and I told them I will take you to the airport. They came to my house.”

Mallaeibeasir and Pouria went to high school together in Tehran two years ago, before Mallaebeasir moved to Malaysia to study business information technology. He said he did not know Reza until the two arrived at his home for a quick night’s stay.

Mallaeibeasir said he did not ask Pouria or Reza why they were in Malaysia. Pouria said he was heading to Germany or Copenhagen after Malaysia in order to visit his mother because they were having family problems, Mallaeibeasir said.

The two men traveled lightly, Mallaebeasier said. Pouria had a mountain climbing-type backpack and a laptop, while Reza carried a suitcase and a laptop, he said.

After he dropped them at the airport, Mallaebeasier called the men on their cell phones. Pouria answered but hung up quickly, and Mallaebeasier ended up talking to Reza for about three minutes, he said.
