Shilpa Shinde gets rape threats for supporting Navjot Singh Sidhu

In an interview she talked about planning to take legal action against these faceless people. She 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 JM guys. 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.”

The comment by Navjot Singh Sidhu over Pulawama attack which became controversial as soon as its release was:

“For a handful of people, can you blame the entire nation and can you blame an individual? It (the attack) is a cowardly act and I condemn it firmly. Violence is always condemnable and those who did it must be punished”.

Navjot Singh Sidhu found himself in the middle of an intense disagreement after his comments on Pulwama terror attack received a severe criticism on social media. After his controversial comment the netizens demanded the ouster of Navjot Singh Sidhu from The Kapil Sharma Show as wel as many of them claimed to have unsubscribed Sony TV on which the show is telecasted.

After seeing too much aggression against Sidhu, he has been removed from the comedy show. Though, there is no formal indication about his permanent termination from the show, claimed Sidhu.

When Shilpa was asked about her reaction on Navjot’s ouster from the Kapil Sharma Show, she said “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.”

Kapil finally broke his silence on February 18 at an Art of Living event when he was asked about the controversy. He said, “These are very small things, or can also be a part of propaganda. I feel banning someone or sacking Navjot Singh Sidhu from the show (The Kapil Sharma Show) is not the solution. We need to look for a permanent solution”.

When he was asked about his thoughts on Pulwama attack, Kapil said that he is with the government. He further added by saying, “We are with the government but still we need a permanent solution. The cowardly act in Pulwama that killed our soldiers shouldn’t be forgotten and the culprits should be punished”.
