New Delhi, Sep 10 (IANS) Indian celebrities like jewellery designer Farah Khan Ali and internationally-acclaimed filmmaker Shekhar Kapur have condemned a US pastor's plan to burn the Quran on the ninth anniversary of 9/11.

'Burning of Quran (is) stupid... why is this silly man getting so much attention?' Kapur posted on micro-blogging site Twitter.

Christian pastor Terry Jones has caused a furore by announcing plans to set fire to the Quran at his Florida church. Ever since, several notables including US President Barack Obama have condemned the act.

Farah, a devout Muslim, called him a 'mad pastor'.

'To the mad pastor out there who thinks by burning a holy book the Quran you can burn our faith, you have a hope in hell. You can burn pages but our faith is in our hearts and soul and you cant take that away,' she posted on her Twitter page.
