Last week, we reported on Muslim women joining a vigil to condemn the Westminster terror attacks.

It was a beautiful tribute from people of all backgrounds, organised by Women’s March London.

However, there were some who saw the picture and immediately looked for something to criticise, asking: ‘Where are the Muslim men?’

Well… They’re here.

Along with Muslim women, Christians, Jews, atheists, policemen, police women, adults and children, rabbis, pastors and everyone in London who wanted to join.

One week on from the terror attack, thousands of people gathered on the spot where it happened to pay their respects.

Powerful photographs show the city coming together, to pay tribute to the victims, condemn the attack and its motivations, and show that our community is not divided.

Nurses and doctors from St Thomas’ hospital, where many of the injured were treated, joined the vigil on the bridge, which was closed for the event.

Schoolchildren clutching yellow roses held signs reading, ‘Islam says no to terror’ as they walked across the span that crosses the River Thames.

Others wore T-shirts with the message ‘I am a Muslim, ask me anything’.
