Jetliner voodoo rituals irk Malaysia scholars

Leading Malaysian Islamic organizations have blasted the voodoo rituals performed by “bomoh”, or shaman, to solve the mystery of Flight MH370′s disappearance as anti-Islamic, as opposition leaders demanded an investigation onto the case as a national embarrassment.

“Anyone going against shari`ah principles and fatwa will be asked to disperse and if they refuse, we will arrest them,” Zaifullah Jaafar Shidek, Sepang district enforcement chief of Selangor Islamic Religious Department (Jais), was quoted by Star Online on Thursday, March 13.

“This is to avoid people from becoming syirik (deviant),” he added.
