Ma'ruf on stage action in the area of ​​Monas is accompanied by a number of figures.

In his oration, he also quotes verses of the Qur'an among them the letter of Al Baqarah verse 17 which means "Their parable is like a person who lights the fire, then after the fire illuminates the surroundings Allah removes the light (which shines them), and lets them in darkness, cannot see ".

Support to the Palestinian state has recently been re-voiced by several countries, including Indonesia.
