Calling the  lack of  solidarity for Shah Rukh Khan in his hour of need“deplorable” , the  tirelessly outspoken Shatrughan Sinha condemns attempts to pull  down Shah Rukh’s reputation by proving him a careless father.

Says Shatrughan Sinha, “They are  pulling out  clips  from a 20-year  old  interview where  Shah Rukh is clearly being  jokey.I don’t know Shah Rukh that well. But I do know he’s a good father. All those who are now  condemning him for spoiling his  son  should look homewards to see if their own children are  doing exactly the  right thing  all the time. When you are  young,  you are reckless. No amount of parental monitoring can stop  your child from  doing what he or she wants to. I’ve been  through that phase of youthful defiance and I know monitoring my  children’s  every move will make them  rebellious. The best way to deal with  the defiant streak in  your children is  to  tell them what is  right and wrong and then let them  be. I think Shah  Rukh has done that.”

The  former  BJP  politician, Shatrughan Sinha now  a part of  the Congress I  feels the backlash against Shah Rukh is  pre-motivated. “There are people out there who are waiting to make  an example out of  people in the limelight. It’s almost as if they get a sadistic pleasure in seeing celebrities suffer. I believe  Shah Rukh’s son Aryan is a well-behaved disciplined  boy. I  am not saying he should be treated specially  because  of who he is . But please don’t  make an example of   him just  because of he is.  Let the laws of the land take  their course. Why are  we  putting the  boy through a media trial? Don’t hold his  privileged upbringing against him.”

Shatrughan Sinha also wonders  about the  enthusiasm  being shown by the  Narcotics Control Bureau(NCB). “They have a zero-conviction record  and they are  eager to prove their relevance. I understand that.And I wish  them  all  success. But picking on Shah Rukh Khan’s son seems as if he is being made the poster-boy of NCB’s relevance.”
