Labelling terrorism as a religion of the barbaric, Bollywood actor Shahrukh Khan urged all religions to unite to fight terror.
"While all civilised religions respect and celebrate life, this new barbaric terror religion loves only death. And unfortunately all humane faiths face a challenge but fortunately for all of us we also have a choice and the choice is 'to destroy or perish.' I believe it is the moral duty of all our religious beliefs to inspire with all its power to root out and wipe out the slightest trace of terror in all the deeds or else accept annihilation of all humanity," he said.
Urging the countrymen to win the fight against terror, Olympic gold medallist shooter Abhinav Bindra said, "Under the circumstances it is understandable to feel a sense of despair and resignation. But that is something we cannot afford. As a sportsman let me tell you that life is about winning. In case of terrorism and terror, winning is our only option." (ANI)
