Muslim Women Stand On Westminster Bridge To Condemn London Terror Attack

On Thursday Britain was shook by an attack at the heart of London which started on Westminster Bridge.

Four people were killed when Khalid Masood drove along the pavement, hitting pedestrians and leaving three with fatal injuries.

After crashing into railings outside the Houses of Parliament, he then stabbed PC Keith Palmer to death.

Four days later, women from all backgrounds have come together to show solidarity and condemn the horrific attacks that took place. Many of the women there were Muslim who wore blue as a symbol of hope and peace.

Sarah Waseem, from Surrey, said: 'When an attack happens in London, it is an attack on me. It is an attack on all of us. Islam totally condemns violence of any sort. This is abhorrent to us.'

Mary Bennett said she was present to make a 'small gesture'. The retired healthcare worker said: 'This is my city. It's a very small gesture but life is made up of small gestures.'

And she's right. At times like this we need these small gestures to show unity and solidarity as a country and a community.
