Soccer legend Diego Maradona on Saturday described terrorism as barbaric and said common people shy away from protesting as they fear for their life.

"Some groups are taking lives of others. I think such acts are barbaric," Maradona told mediapersons when asked about his message against terrorism.

"I think common people cannot protest against act of terrorism as it is life-threatening," said the 48-year-old soccer great, who is on his first visit to India.

"They (terrorists) shouldn't do it," Maradona said.

The Argentine soccer coach's comments came 10 days after the devastating terrorist strike on India's commercial capital Mumbai left 172 people killed and the entire world shell-shocked.
