Shaniera Akram schools actor Feroze Khan on road safety and child protection in latest social media post. The wife of a former cricketer took to social media to give her two cents on the video shared by actor Humaima Malik showing Feroze Khan driving the car with his son sitting in his lap.
Commenting on the video, Shaniera Akram said that ‘children are not toys’. Akram wrote, “Why don’t they get it through their thick heads! this is DANGEROUS and putting your own child’s life in jeopardy.”
She said even if one is driving the car at the speed of 30km/h and any car hits you, it’s the child who will be affected the most. Adding that “Your child will be flung from your arms, hit the dash, hit the windscreen or worse. If your child survives, chances are they will have hit their head so hard they will have a brain injury for life. Why, WHY would anyone ever even risk that? Your child doesn’t know what’s right, but you do! Don’t be an idiot, children are not TOYS!”.

She added that she has not got anything personal with any celebrity but being public figures they bear the responsibility for their actions. Shaniera advised that Khan should put on the seat belt and put the seat in the backseat.
“But if and when they blatantly do dangerous things that put children’s lives at risk and post them doing it it is not ok and I can not ignore it. If you are in the public eye, you have a responsibility to the public. Your actions influences fans to think what you are doing is ok. Putting your life and children’s lives at risk is not ok EVER!” she exclaimed.
“The tiniest little bump to the car can set the airbags off so fast and without warning. If your child is in the front seat or on your lap, the airbags can be fatal to an unbuckled child,” she said.
