Even though we're living in the 21st century, you would be surprise to know that most malays still believe that bomohs are legit healers.
Nampak benda ghaib malam-malam? Jom jumpa bomoh.
Sakit tekak akibat dibuat jiran sebelah yang cemburu sebab kamu beli TV HD? Jom jumpa bomoh.
Sakit perut dan lesu badan? Jom jumpa bomoh.
Anak bodoh dan tak nak belajar? Jom jumpa bomoh.
Muka berjerawat batu? Jom jumpa bomoh.
Demam tak sudah-sudah? Jom jumpa bomoh.
Nak kurus? Jom jumpa bomoh.
When will our people learn that bomohs are practically con men because they tell you things you WANT to hear. For example;
"Tok, saya ni tok, dah seminggu asyik muntah-muntah aje."
"Kamu muntah darah ke darah biasa."
"Muntah biasa tok."
"Tok dengar kamu dah bercerai. Memang ni angkara isteri baru suami cik sebab dia cemburu sebab bekas suami cik masih sayangkan cik. Dia yang pasang barang dekat cik."
All bomohs veil that wretched ways with religion. Bismillah here and there, "Saya mahu kamu bawa 2 kepala ayam, satu hitam satu putih... Al-fatihah!" Maybe this is the reason why people trust bomohs, because they think what they are doing is not only halal but the preferred way of healing in Islam.
Shit of bull.
It is also our fault that there are so many bomohs out there. We demand for their services so much that now they have started to specialise. Gila.
Go see a doctor.
