Hamza Young Boss was on the bus when he saw the woman fall near the doors after the bus hit a dip in the road.

The elderly woman’s head ended up wedged between the door and a pole, meaning she was stuck on the floor. The unidentified Muslim woman walked over and held her hand to comfort her for 20 minutes until help arrived.

The photograph, which has now been shared over 41,000 times, has been inundated with comments from people saying the small gesture was ‘beautiful’ and wishing both women well.

One wrote: “Love this. People need to realise that the terrorists are not Muslim. Real Muslims are actually such a lovely community of people.” Another posted: “Lovely! Love it when a community can come together as one.”

Sadly, London mayor Sadiq Khan reported a 40 percent increase in racist incidents in the wake of the attacks.
