Remember how last week, we learned from Kelantan Mufti Datuk Mohamad Shukri Mohamad that telling ghost stories would cause hysteria? Well, we have reason to believe again that he might really be onto something.
The Malaysian School System took a break from team building with anacondas to actually close one of their facilities due to a 100 students and teachers claiming to have seen a black figure.
Kota Bharu’s SMK Pengkalan Chepa 2 Secondary School was forced to close due to a collective panic that sprang up from the supernatural spotting.
According to one of the teachers on-site, “When I was holding one of the pupils, my arms felt extraordinarily heavy. I recited the Istighfar. Things were truly out of control at this time, but after the pupil recovered and went home, I then felt as though someone was hanging onto the left side of my body. I saw flashes of black, like a black figure.”
Side note: The Istighfar or Astaghfirullah is an Islamic prayer seeking forgiveness from Allah.
Another campus official was quoted by the BBC as saying, “Our students were possessed and disturbed. We are not sure why it happened. We don’t know what it is that affected us.”
In response, the school was closed so that various witch doctors and exorcists could be called in to cleanse the grounds, and local authorities dispatched trauma counselors to assist with the campus reopening.
Point to the Mufti.
