With the Lighting option you can set an ambient white lighting that
will get rid of your shading:

Plot3D[Sin[x y], {x, -Pi, Pi}, {y, -Pi, Pi}, PlotPoints -> Automatic,
 Mesh -> {{-Pi/2, 0, Pi/2}, {-Pi/2, 0, Pi/2}},
 MeshStyle -> {{Black, Thickness[0.004]}, {Black, Thickness[0.004]}},
 PlotRange -> {All, All, All}, BaseStyle -> {FontSize -> 12, Bold},
 Boxed -> False, PlotRegion -> {{0.025, 0.975}, {0.025, 0.975}},
 MeshShading -> None, Exclusions -> None,
 Lighting -> {{"Ambient", White}}]
