Fulham have made an indifferent start to the season, collecting just four points from six games, but Hughes says it is too early to write off the Dutchman.
He said: "I think it is really crazy at this early stage of the season.
"It is ridiculous that a quality manager like Martin Jol is coming under pressure.
"He has got great experience and has worked at a high level throughout his career.
"He has the ability and knowledge to get through a perceived period of uncertainty."
