#Trending: You Ain't No Muslim Bruv! Twitter unites over words condemning London stabber

On 5 December, a 29-year-old man stabbed and injured three commuters at London's Leytonstone subway station, shouting that "it was for Syria".

A witness who filmed the horrific scene yelled back: "You ain't no Muslim, bruv".

With the entire exchange on camera, it was only a matter of time before social media picked it up and showed it love. In a few hours, the bystander's angry retort had turned into a war cry.

In the wake of a spate of acts of terrorism fuelled by religious fundamentalism and increasing hostility towards Muslims across the world, #YouAintNoMuslimBruv has got to be the most heartwarming hashtag to have gone viral recently.

By Sunday, thousands had sent out tweets in support, in brotherhood, in agreement that no religion should be linked with acts of terrorism. That no religion condones violence, that Islam has nothing to do with the 'war for jihad'.
