To some, the image of a Muslim woman walking past a victim of Tuesday’s terrorist attack on London’s Westminster Bridge captured a moment of heartless indifference.
To others, the image shows a woman, one hand to her head as her attention is riveted to her phone, trying to cope with the sudden chaos of an attack that left at least four dead and dozens wounded.
The Twitter row was kicked off by a Twitter user who posted the photo with a controversial caption.

Reaction soon followed. Some agreed with the Texan.
THIS IS THE IMAGE OF ISLAM.

Others, however, thought that without knowing her story, attacking the woman was cruel.
@SouthLoneStar you are a complete embarrassing mess of a person. Kindly crawl back to the pond you came out of,

Some noted that life in the big city goes on no matter what.

Another Twitter user noted that no one was hurling accusations at a white man who also was clearly not stopping to help a victim.

Some however, noted that they should not be considered equally.
@Impeach_D_Trump Can no one see why a Muslim woman in a head scarf might be worried for her safety at that point? The white guy not so much

Although British newspapers asked the woman pictured to come forward she has not done so.
