A woman in headscarf walking past ‘casually’ by dead man in London terror attack goes viral

London Terror Attack-woman
New Delhi: A photograph of a woman wearing a headscarf, checking her phone as she walks past a victim lying prone after the London terror attacks last evening, has gone viral provoking both outrage and sympathy.

Twitter user Texas Lone Star posted the picture saying, Muslim woman pays no mind to the terror attack, casually walks by a dying man while checking phone with hashtags #PrayforLondon and #BanIslam.

He then followed it up with another tweet of the same picture captioned it THEM alongside a picture showing people (all white) helping a victim and captioned it US, and wrote, “The main difference between Muslims and Christians,” with the hashtags #PrayForLondon #Parliament #Westminster.

The tweets were shared hundreds of times, with many lending voice to Lone Star Texas’ anti Muslim comments. But as many others quickly put him in his place. Someone even posted a picture of a white man walking past a similar scene while doing nothing, which hasnt attracted the same amount of attention.

Another user, Dr Vicky Forster @vickyyyf spelt out her distaste for racial profiling saying, “@SouthLoneStar you are a complete embarrassing mess of a person. Kindly crawl back to the pond you came out of, Stupidity embodied.”

RogueBennyBen said appropriately, “Who knows what they were doing. Plenty of people involved. May even have been told to walk on. Judgment not needed.
