Ibrahim Mat Zin, also known as Raja Bomoh was arrested by police in Segamat, Johor, on Friday morning (April 21, 2017).
According to a news portal reported, Ibrahim was arrested at a hotel there at 2.30am.
He had earlier been summoned by the police and Malaysian Islamic Development Department (Jakim) after he conducted his signature ritual to “protect” Malaysia from North Korea following the assassination of Kim Jong Nam, the estranged half-brother of North Korean leader Kin Jong Un.
It was reported that Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, Datuk Dr Ashraf Wajdi Dusuki, said police arrested Ibrahim because his actions have damaged the image of Islam.
The Malay shaman is infamous for his bizarre rituals, such as the theatrical display he performed outside the Kuala Lumpur Hospital (HKL) mortuary on March 13 – complete with bamboo shoots which he used as binoculars – to “protect” the country from harm, and which was captured by the international press, much to the embarrassment of many Malaysians.
After observing his many shenanigans, the Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (Jakim) director-general Tan Sri Othman Mustapha advised people not to pay the shaman any heed, because Ibrahim’s rituals contradict the teachings of Islam.
