A Twitter user using the name ‘Agent Richard Gill’ tweeted the following reply, implying all Muslims should be blamed for the attack:
Hannah replied defending Muslims by saying that it was a Muslim taxi driver who took her home to safety that night describing him as a ‘compassionate man’:
There have been numerous examples of Muslims and those of others faiths engaging in selfless acts for those affected. From the taxi drivers who gave free rides to help people get home to the Mosque offering people a place to stay and the Muslim-run restaurants offering food to members of the emergency services and providing food to parents who are by their children’s side at the Royal Manchester children’s hospital.
The people of Manchester have come together as one and have not let racists and Islamophobes divide them.
