              Indian judicial system should adopt community service as punishment rather then jail term , if he was given this kind of punishment it would have been much harder coz his wealth would have gone in charity to bomb blast victims rehabs and he would have got a lesson that even harbouring terrorists knowingly or vice versa is crime. More over he said that he hold gun as he love it or self protection was indication of in which psychological mental conditions he was ,he needed counseling and medication rather than jail term . and punishment should be only part away his wealth to victims as he didn't had any other qualification to serve the victims

                    Well I am really overwhelmed by the fact that what termoils the Dutt Family in general and Sanju Baba specifically must have been through in the last 42 months. It brings tears to my eyes to see Shahraan, Iqra and Trishala being able to spend to spend those adorable moments with their father. And needless to say the strength which Sanjay's wife -Manyaata has given to him- staying with him through thick and thin, highs and lows- is Commendable. What Sanjay could do is to help and support families of the victims of Terrorist Attacks in whatever way he and his family can. All the Best to you- Sanjay and may you have many decades of many more hits and superhits in Bollywood. looking forward to seeing your next movie soon and meeting you in person.

                      Oh you media guys, he's a film star at best - not a freedom fighter. stop treating film stars as GODS. you are lowering the IQ of the country that already has a low IQ to begin with.
