As the awful hostage situation took place in Sydney on Monday, Australians on Twitter started using a hashtag to stand in solidarity with Muslims in the country. #IllRideWithYou is meant to counter any backlash Muslims might face after the suspect was identified as an Islamic man.

It all began when one woman noticed another on the train silently removing her hijab.

Soon after, the hashtag took over Twitter.

While it mostly refers to transportation, it's also being used to showcase other acts of kindness.

It spread so quickly, it became one of the top global hashtags on Twitter.
