Pics: Muslim Women Stand Hand-In-Hand In Solidarity With The Victims Of Westminster Bridge, London Attack
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.'
Sarah Waseem, 57, from Surrey, said: 'When an attack happens in London, it is an attack on me.
'It is an attack on all of us. Islam totally condemns violence of any sort. This is abhorrent to us.'
The 34-year-old mother-of-two, also from Surrey, said: 'As a visible Muslim I think it was important to show solidarity with the principles that we all hold dear, the principles of plurality, diversity and so on.'
The retired healthcare worker said: 'I am here to show that in a quiet way we continue to go where we like and do what we like in London.
'This is my city. It's a very small gesture but life is made up of small gestures.'
