What’s Really Happening In The Picture That People Think Shows ‘Muslim Woman Paying No Mind’ To Terrorist Attack

On Wednesday the 22nd of March, at 2.40pm local time, a terrorist attack on London’s Westminster bridge left five people dead and approximately 40 other people injured. Khalid Masood (born Adrian Elms) wreaked havoc when he rammed several innocent pedestrians on the bridge with a grey Hyundai and then proceeded to stab 48-year-old police officer Keith Palmer, who died of his injuries at the scene.

Masood was subsequently shot and killed by armed police forces, and emergency services arrived to provide urgent aid to those wounded in the attack. Later the London Metropolitan police raided six properties around the country and made a total of seven arrests. British Prime Minister Theresa May called the incident “a direct attack on British democracy”.

The city of London was left shocked and disturbed by the incident. The borough of Westminster was placed in a state of lockdown and MPs later described having to flee the scene. A candlelight vigil was later prepared in Trafalgar Square to honour those who lost their lives as a result of the senseless violence.

But fear, anxiety and apprehension are not the only malign emotions perpetuated by an act of terror. Terrorism is always a way to seed doubt, sow ignorance and misinformation, and exacerbate existing bigotry and prejudice. Online, this sad axiom proved itself when an image was shared widely on social media of what appeared to be a young Muslim woman coldly ignoring the carnage around her and the plight of the injured victims; walking right by them. The real story however, is a lot more complicated.
