Raja Bomoh (real name Ibrahim Mat Zin) is infamous for his rituals. In 2014, he performed a ‘ritual’ to find the missing flight MH370 using coconuts.
According to Today Online, Raja Bomoh apologised for his antics during a press conference in 2017 and said it was all an act as instructed by someone whose identity he wouldn’t disclose.
Despite the public apology, he has kept up with his antics and tried to shield Malaysia and the world from the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020.
His latest ‘ritual’ is to prevent Teluk Intan from being flooded. This time, he had extra help from a woman named Puteri Zaleha.
According to New Straits Times, the video showing their ritual allegedly took place at Dataran JPS in Teluk Intan, Perak yesterday (5 January).
Puteri Zaleha shared that she had a dream depicting a bad flood in Teluk Intan and the ritual used are not magic but tips from ancient times.
The ritual using ingredients such as turmeric, flowers, rice and plants was done to protect Teluk Intan and other areas in Perak from floodwaters.
The ingredients were then pushed into the water in hopes to make the flood water go away.
There was also a book that looked like a copy of the Quran in front of them.
According to Astro Awani, Puteri Zaleha could be heard singing some lines from the Mayang Sari song.
The ritual I made today were tips from the ancient times. We pray to God and ask for Teluk Intan to be safe from the flood, and with His permission, the flood water will recede.Raja Bomoh

Perak deputy Mufti Datuk Zamri Hashim said the State Fatwa Committee meeting held between 17 and 19 September 2014 decided that the acts committed by Raja Bomoh were against Islamic law.

He added that Muslims in the state who disobeyed the fatwa could be prosecuted under the law enforced in Perak.
Muslims in the state are also prohibited from spreading any activities related to Raja Bomoh in the form of pamphlets, social media, audio recordings or films.
This includes spreading, supporting and promoting Raja Bomoh’s ideology and attending any ceremony or events directly or indirectly.
