There are rumours that Dato Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hassan had fallen ill on last Friday due to ‘santau’ which is a kind of black magic that is said still being practiced by a handful of practitioners in the Malay community.
Because of this, he could not attend any private or public function for three days – including the one in Sadong Jaya which he had to delegate his duty to his assistant minister Mohd Naroden Majais.
He had to be given injections by his doctor to help him to reduce his unusually high body temperature.
If this is true, that it is not a surprised to hear that a Mufti had called for a law to govern the practice of black magic in the country.
