Hantu Pocong at UiTM Shah Alam?

By M.Isaac

I am sure many of us were also up to some mischief back in our college days.

It was all part of growing up and many of us treasure these fun-filled memories till today.

In a video which has since gone viral, a student from Kolej Perindu in UiTM Shah Alam decided to become the famous "hantu pocong".

Apparently, the student was making a video for some project when someone else from the opposite block took another video.

A pocong, which is pretty popular in Malaysia, also known as wrapped ghost said to be the soul of a dead person trapped in its shroud.

According to traditional beliefs, the soul of a dead person will stay on the Earth for 40 days after the death.

If the ties over the shroud are not released after 40 days, the body is said to jump out from the grave to warn people that the soul needs to be released.

After the ties are released, the soul will leave the Earth forever. Because of the tie under the feet, the ghost can't walk. This causes the pocong to hop like a rabbit. They also have the ability to fly and teleport.
