Shilpa Shinde receives rape threats for backing Sidhu’s comment on Pulwama attack

Bigg Boss winner and Congress politician Shilpa Shinde recently supported Navjot Singh Sidhu after he commented on Pulwama terror attack. However, soon after that the actress was trolled mercilessly on social media. Some of the users even threatened to rape her. Shilpa Shinde is a household name after she portrayed the role of Angoori Bhabhi on &TV show ‘Bhabhiji Ghar Par Hain’. She strongly reacted on Sidhu getting banned from shooting ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’.

“I am totally against the new phenomenon of banning anyone whose views you don’t concur with. Sadly, CINTAA and other industry bodies are equally complicit in this. Everyone has the right to occupation; you can’t deny me the right to earn my livelihood. In the same vein, I also bat for the rights of Pakistani artists to work in Bollywood, purely on the basis of talent. I have been victim of this ban culture, so know what’s wrong with it,” Shilpa Shinde was quoted as saying by IWMBuzz.

“Also, why was everyone after him to say something bad about Pakistan? He hit the nail on the head by saying that, at the end of the day, issues can only be threshed out on the peace table,” Shilpa added. The actress recently joined Congress party and rumours are rife that she might contest the Lok Sabha elections.

Reacting on the trolls the actress said, “I am going to take legal action. It is high time the authorities stepped in and cracked down on such elements who have also attacked several women journalists.”
