PETALING JAYA: The hunt for the missing MH370 is on most people’s minds now, but the declaration by a bomoh (shaman) who claims to be able to find the missing jetliner has also resulted in many social media users creating spoofs of his claims.
Social media followers have taken this opportunity to create multiple spoofs of the bomoh and his team, most of which are images of them re-enacting his actions of using a 'bubu (traditional fishing object) and bamboo scopes' as well his 'magic carpet and coconut action'.
On Wednesday, the Department of Islamic Development (Jakim) had announced that the actions of the bomoh is illegal and that he will be facing legal action, while Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaludin tweeted asking for the bomoh to be arrested and followed up by contacting the Prime Minister’s department to look into the matter.
