The London attacks, on the 7th July 2005, (frequently known as 7/7) were a string of organized suicide bombings in London, the United Kingdom , which was aimed at citizens via the public transportation system in the daybreak peak hour. There are various obvious contradictions in the certified description of proceedings involving the London bombings which have generated queries, scandals and conspiracy presumptions. 52 civilians, including four terrorists, died in the bombings, and more than 700 causalities were reported about. Four terrorists were later on recognized and identified as Mohammad Khan, Shehzad Tanweer, Hasib Hussain (all of Pakistani descent), and Germaine Lindsay (of Jamaican descent) (Radu, 2005, p.1).

The first bomb detonated on a Circle line train (number 204), heading eastbound between Liverpool Street and Aldgate. Seven people were reported to have died. The second gadget exploded in the second coach of a different Circle line train (number 216), which departed form stage 4 at Edgware Road and headed westbound in the direction of Paddington. The explosion gusted an opening in the barricade, and a different train was smacked by fragments from the broken wall. Five people died from this explosion.

The third device detonated on a Piccadilly line train (number 311), operating underground, heading southbound from King's Cross-St. Pancras and Russell Square. Twenty-one civilians were reported dead; it is alleged that other corpses are still in the burrow, which is one of the deepest in the Underground system. Thirty minutes later, the fourth gadget exploded on a No. 30 bus, blowing up connection linking Tavistock Square and Woburn Place near the BMA house. It is believed that approximately thirteen civilians died in that explosion (Radu, 2005, p.1).

Consequently, legislation has been introduced in the UK which assists people in the criminal offense positions to receive training on terrorist tactics including how to make a bomb using raw materials. These attacks initiated prejudice especially for the Muslim communities living in the UK. The UK has 1.6 million Muslims, and 58 million other people, who have generated peaceful multiculturalism. Thus, the notion that diverse societies with different cultures can reside serenely was completely curbed. Other countries abroad, such as France, Italy, and Germany intensified their security along the borders and announced close scrutiny of passports.
