Former BiggBoss winner and actor turned politician Shilpa Shinde's knack for attracting massive controversies is no secret. And the actress has done it again!


Shilpa Shinde received some major backlash and rape threats for backing former Indian Cricketer and now active politician Navjot Singh Sidhu's comments on the recently occurred gruesome Pulwama attacks which claimed the lives of as many as 40 CRPF jawans. 


Sidhu stirred up a major controversy when he was quoted on the sets of The Kapil Sharma Show saying that," For a handful of people, can you blame the entire nation and can you blame an individual? It is a cowardly act and I condemn it firmly. Violence is always condemnable and those who did it must be punished." 


As an aftermath of his opinion, the politician is sacked from the Sony show and is also facing a ban from the CINTAA and is banned from entering the premises of popular shoot location; FilmCity.


While backing Sidhu and his opinion; Shilpa Shinde has said during a recent media interaction," What wrong did Paji say? People just want to twist his lines. Where did he support terrorism? Agreed, he might have been politically correct by not criticizing his friend, Imran Khan, but you need to understand that they have played together for years. 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; who gained an immense fan following after her stint in Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hain further went on to say," 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 a victim of this ban culture, so know what's wrong with it."


Further speaking on the rape threats she received online; Shilpa 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 like Barkha Dutt and others. I call such people terrorists as well, for their actions are as bad as the LeT and JeM guys."
