At around 10pm on Saturday, 3rd June, the city of London was in shock yet again as 6 people died and many injured by 3 heartless killers.
They went on a rampage in their van and then on foot stabbing innocent people in London Bridge and the London Borough Market. One was reported to have said “This is for Allah,” and as it’s case with every such terror attack, the Islamophobes use such events to voice out their hatred remarks.
However, as always also, we see ordinary Muslims going the extra mile for humanity in such instances and we also witness sensible non-Muslims showing their solidarity towards the normal innocent Muslims and Islam which had nothing to do with such senseless crimes.
London Muslim shopkeepers and mosques welcoming anyone who wants safety whilst condemning the act
After an hour of being stuck in the #londonbridge area and told to run by police, Muslim shopkeepers offered me food and a place to stay.

Non-Muslims & Muslims responding to Islamophobia
If you can differentiate between the KKK and Christians then you can do the same for Islamist Extremists and Muslims #LondonBridge

Spare the racism tonight. Those conducting these horrific attacks don't belong to anything but their own sadistic minds #LondonBridge

To all the Americans trying to promote messages of hate, please stop. We're Londoners. We stand together, not divided. #LondonBridge

If these people were proper Muslims, they should have been at the mosque praying during Ramadan like us normal Muslims #LondonBridge

At 10.15pm, Muslims would have just finished Ramadan fasting meal & be preparing for night prayers. #LondonBridge terrorists werent Muslims

Please remember the attacks were not committed by religion or race but hate. Don't spread more hate or fear, terror can't win#londonbridge

No religion, no race, no culture promotes hurting and killing innocent people. It’s those who are mentally sick, brainwashed with hatred and have mystical ideas of their own that do such brainless barbaric acts.
It’s vital we as sane minded humans don’t buy into their evil narrative which is to cause divide. We need to show we are together against the fight of evil. Don’t incite hatred. Don’t create walls. Build bridges – that’s the way God Almighty tells in the Quran to do – repel an evil with a good.
