Muslims came forward to offer help for people affected by the deadly terror attack at London Bridge and Borough Market.
Initial reports indicated those behind the attack which left seven people dead were inspired by extremist Islamist groups, with Prime Minister Theresa May saying the killings showed there was too much tolerance towards extremism in the UK.
But according to the Independent, people took to social media to share their experiences of Muslim taxi drivers and shop owners who supplied them with free rides, food and a place to stay in the wake of the killings.
“I have just had a Muslim taxi driver take me home and he has cried on me over the attacks tonight,” she said. “Terrorism has no religion”.
One woman showed her gratitude, writing that it was a Muslim taxi driver that “got [her] out of that hellish situation and to safety”.
Twitter user @gxyred had been stranded in the area after major tube lines shut, and said Muslim shopkeepers offered him food and a place to stay.
YouTuber Luke Cutforth insisted that blame for the terror attack, which injured a further 48, did not lie with Muslims.
He wrote: “Blaming all Muslims for terrorism is just like blaming all males for terrorism! Most terrorists are male, so do you deport all of them?”
