'Fanatic Muslims damage the image of Islam far more than any cartoon'

Richa ChaddaA look at the top tweets from your favourite Bollywood celebrities.

Several celebrities took to Twitter to condemn the terrorist attack on the offices of French magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris. Here's what they said:

Mandira Bedi: Horrible what happened in #Paris. Do we now live in a world where freedom of expression is not just dying, but being attacked and murdered?

Javed Akhtar: The medieval irrationality and modern weaponry are a terrible combination and the ultimate danger to the very existence of human race. Is Paris burning? I thought this will never be asked again after the end of the Nazi era. The world should unite again against the terrorism.

Richa Chadda (pictured here): Fanatic Muslims damage the image of Islam far more than any cartoon (or Press at large) ever could. #CharleHebdo

Madhur Bhandarkar: We have entered a phase in human evolution where sense of humor will now be weighed alongside sense of danger. RIP Humanity!

Shraddha Kapoor: Exercise your rights having respect for all faiths, live & let live, but no reason is good enough to kill. Prayers for lives lost in Paris.

Chetan Bhagat: Those who killed the cartoonists yesterday did not protect Islam, they only tainted it further. They are the real blasphemists.

Shatrughan Sinha: Terror has no religion, #ParisShooting incident is an ghastly attack on humanity. Its a wake up call for everyone.

Virr Das: If you support Paris today and go back to threatening people tomorrow for their joke about your leader/religion/community, it means nothing!
