He even insinuated the hearing of US President Donald Trump.

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 ".
