MALAYSIA: GLOBAL HUB for GLOBAL-TAHYUL-ISM NOW?

)

-- if this were to happen in JFK (John F. Kennedy Airport) they these circus people would have first been arrested and next, be on the Jerry Springler show or Comedy Central!

at a time when the country and the world is in a sombre mood, why are we seeing a circus of this magnitude, especially semiotically linking it this "tahyul-ism par excellence" with the culture of the Malays and the religion of Islam?

- haven't we been seeing enough of circus going on surrounding the search for the missing aircraft or the search for the hidden aircraft?

why aren't these shamans whisked away and be told that we don't need such a cheap show of the use of the phrase "Allahu Akbar" (God is Great) by capitalizing on "shaminism-tahyulism" of such magnitude.

- are we promoting a Visit Malaysia as a Hub for Global Tahyul-ism or Tolol-ism now?
understandably Malays and even people of other religious inclination use magicians to seek help or spiritual consolation, based on what they belief as another paradigm that will offer an explanatory power of phenomena unexplainable, but to allow one group to conduct such a performance in a public space secular in nature and one symbolic as a welcoming space for world travel is way too much for Malaysian to accept as a representation of this nation - -especially when we are in the most difficult time in history with regard to media representation of us as a people with sense and sensibility.

- enough is enough with bomohs and shamans, especially those wearing "kot cendoi" (bargain suits and tie) and wearing songkok and having a website and calling his group Raja Bomoh VIP. What in the world is this group selling? Understandably Malay politicians use the services of these kinds of bomohs extensively some with distastrous results such as in the case of Perlis- famous Mona Fendy who was also a two-minute-famous singer and drives expensive continental automobile, whose tahyulistic powers somehow failed her leading to the incapacitation of the head of a Malay-Muslim politician, further leading her and his co-bomoh to cut him into pieces, bury him in a backyard of a house and pour concrete on that area. It took another religious bomoh of good standing to exorcise the demons in Mona Fandey while she was in jail.

so-- what else do we need in this never ending circus displaying tahyul-ism to the world. Enough is enough ... let us focus on merely and quietly console ourselves in our own religious or non-religious way either via mantra, puja, doa, prayers or creative visualization and neuro-linguistic programming and let science take over in the search for something as tangible as an airplane. This is a world of science essentially and Kuala Lumpur International Airport where the diaplay of global tahyul-ism is going on is right there in the hub we called "Multimedia Super Corridor" and not in the "City of Mambang Darat, Mambang Laut, Mambang Udara... "!

-- so proper authorities, do the right thing please ... take those VIP bomohs elsewhere -- to where they belong: to those VVIPs who need them more for political salvage-tion at a time when djinns and toyols rule the nation.

be serious -- this is not the time to joke around, we are seeing enough distractions upon distractions upon distraction ad nauseum -- ar

 NO MALAY-MUSLIMS, NO ...

discard your bomoh-ism, tahyul-ism, supernaturalism ...
claims of one's ability to have a "pandangan makrifat" or "the Gaze of the Sublime" and to capitalize on the mind of the gullibe, the weak, the colonized is false ...

-- the power is in YOU, only if you harness it and only if you know who you are ... the shariat, tariqat, hakikat, makrifat ... in your belief system is in YOU ... not the monopoly of some bomoh in suit and tie ...

the kudrat, iradah, ilm, hayat ... is to be rediscovered in you ...

KNOW THYSELF
KNOW THINE ENEMIES .

and thou shall keep those bomohs/shamans away

the best bastion over those "evil spirits" your bomohs talked about is an internal defense inside of YOU ... not what the bomohs tells you to pay for to exorcise them ...

if you believe in what you believe in -- do you still need intermediaries?
