Egyptian news vision: - The Syrian actor, Aref Al-Tawil, took the constitutional oath in the People's Assembly in a way that sparked controversy on social media after circulating his picture while placing his hand on two books.

The pioneers of social networking sites said that the two books were the Qur’an and the Bible, which raised questions of the people and the public, who described what he did as daring, while others believed that he did so inadvertently.

While Arif al-Tawil emphasized that he did not make mistakes as people believed and that he deliberately swore to the Qur’an and the Bible together, and wrote: “Yes, I am the first who deliberately put his hand on the Qur’an and the Bible together during the oath.

This is how my mother taught us within my Syrian family, and this is what I learned in my Syrian school.”

He continued, "I grew up respecting religions and not differentiating them, so I put my hand on the Qur'an and the Bible together."

He concluded: "What I very much hope is that we will all be in front of the Syrian people, in fact, not in words."

Aref al-Tawil joined the People's Assembly in 2016.

He is an artist, director and member of the Syrian parliament who joined the Syndicate of Syrian Artists in 1986 and held the position of head of the drama office in the Syndicate between 1998 and 2002.
