Muslim women dressed in headscarves stand hand-in-hand on Westminster Bridge in solidarity with the victims of London terror attack

Muslim women stood hand-in-hand with others on Westminster Bridge in a show of solidarity with the victims of Wednesday's terror attack.

A group of women, who said they were wearing blue as a symbol of hope, stood holding hands for five minutes on Westminster Bridge as Big Ben chimed 4pm.

People from a range of backgrounds joined the event, organised by Women's March On London.

Three members of the public died after Khalid Masood sped along the bridge before storming the parliamentary estate and stabbing PC Keith Palmer to death.




Fariha Khan, 40, a GP from Surbiton, said: 'The feeling of what happened here on Wednesday was really strong.

'We thought of the ordinary people who were here and were mown down, standing here like this, it was very overwhelming.'

She was joined by fellow Ahmadiyya Muslims who said they wanted to add to the condemnation of the violent attack and stand defiant in the face of terrorism.

Sarah Waseem, 57, from Surrey, said: 'When an attack happens in London, it is an attack on me.

I know it is a bit sexist, But I think the key to converting British Muslims to more secular ideals is through their women.
the strongest voices against the Islamic hill shepherds down here is often Muslim women..

I think it really reflects on the true fact that despite rhetoric 'People are people' and everyone has a mother...
Plus guys will do whatever to impresses the lady they are sweet on Cool Cool Cool Cool

notice these are "Ahmadiyya Muslims"

that matters

they are not "SHIA" OR "WAHABI" OR "SUNNI"

They are a small "sect" which the other 3 persecute mercilessly given half a chance

their views are often very peaceable and thus out of step with "mainstream Muslims"
