THE home of Sharlinie Mohd Nashar was filled with relatives, neighbours and well-wishers who attended the kenduri doa selamat yesterday.
The ceremony after Isyak prayers saw the guests reciting the Yaasin and other prayers.
Also present was Batang Kali State assemblyman Datuk Zainal Abidin Sakom. Amidst the sombre mood, numerous theories were bandied about her disappearance.
A neighbour, who only wished to be known as Che Ani, believed that black magic could be involved.
“Just look at the case of Nurin Jazlin. Until today, police still can’t find the identity of the man carrying the bag in the CCTV footage. I believe the man who kidnapped Nurin is the same culprit who has Sharlinie now.
“He’s practising some sort of black magic and that’s why Sharlinie can’t be found.”
Another neighbour, Saiton Bidin, 53, said that before the child was reported missing, the girl always came to her house to buy ice-cream.
“Sharlinie and her sister always came over to buy ice-cream. But on the day she went missing, she didn’t show up at all. I miss her. She is just a little child, she doesn’t know anything.
“It’s hard to believe that she has been gone for 22 days,” she said.
