Actor Shah Rukh Khan's recent detention at the US airport may have invited a lot of criticism but John Abraham, who too got detained in 2009, believes it is justified. "Every country does its due diligence. Getting into India for foreigners is like hell… it's not easy. The US is also doing whatever they can to make their country safe, so it is justified. It all depends on how personally you take the issue, and Shah Rukh handled it with a lot of grace," said the actor, who was in the Capital to promote his first production, Vicky Donor. However, John agrees that the way American authorities treat Asians is up for debate. "I have been in that detention space, where the (Federal Bureau of Investigation) FBI was called in because I had Afganistan mentioned in my passport, as I had shot there for two months for my film Kabul Express. There wasn't much hue and cry about this as I never wanted to use the incident as a media peg for the film. I was in for six hours and I was asked the strangest questions. And of course, Shah Rukh would agree that racial profiling could be a pretty much correct term for it (interrogation) because its mostly coloured people who are detained," said John who believes the procedure has a good and a bad side to it.
