This is What Mira Rajput's College Batchmate Has to Say About Her Take on Feminism

...including some pretty shocking deets about her college days.

Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor's wife Mira Rajput has recently been on the receiving end of a lot of social media backlash thanks to her take on feminism and on being a homemaker.

"I love being at home, I love being a mother to my child, I wouldn't want to spend one hour a day with my child and rush off to work, why did I have her? She is not a puppy...I want to be there for her as a mother," she had said in an interview on International Women's Day this year.

"Feminism isn't woman versus man. It's about equality. A new wave of feminism has come that is aggressive...I feel it's destructive."

"There's a new term called 'feminazi', which is the female equivalent of a chauvinist. I think there should be harmony between the two sexes and equilibrium," she explained.

Speaking on women empowerment, Mira added, "empowerment means you have the right to choose. So it's my choice if I want to be at home. And it's someone else's choice if they want to be a working mother. But both are equally valid and neither of them should be shamed."

However, her "puppy" remark did not go down well with many and several working mothers criticized her on social media for the same.

And now Mira's former college batchmate has slammed her notion of feminism in this polemical Facebook post:

Dear Mira,

Having watched your interview, I feel extremely enraged today. I've spent three years in the same college and batch as you. I can say today with confidence that your idea of feminism is extremely flawed. Seeing you walk around with your posse in college, belittling women who were not skinny enough or did not subscribe to your fashion 'standards' makes me wonder what you ever did to have a moral high ground over anyone at any point. Your narrow world view is astounding to say the least. And not to forget, how your statement about working mothers takes us years back in reaching actual empowerment of which you seem to know nothing.

With lots of aggression,

An informed feminist
