Airport rituals anger NGO The head of a Muslim NGO has criticized the rituals of bomoh Ibrahim Mat Zin at Kuala Lumpur International Airport, calling them acts against Islam. The rituals of the bomoh, or Malay shaman, are purportedly to help find the missing Malaysia Airlines jetliner. Pertubuhan Ilmuan Malaysia CEO Ahmad Fazrin Yahaya called the bomoh an “attention seeker” and said that his rituals are not in accordance with Islamic principles. “As a Muslim, I believe in honest prayers as the way to appeal to Allah for intervention,” he said. “These nonsensical rituals embarrass Malaysian Muslims and seem to make a mockery of proper Islamic teachings,” he told reporters.
