Shahid Kapoor‘s wife, Mira Rajput caused quite a storm with her comments on feminism and now, one of her batchmates has slammed her on social media.
Her Facebook post reads:
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
Mira ruffled many feathers, when she recently stated, ”I am a housewife and wear that label with pride. Why can’t you be an accomplished homemaker? Accomplishing could mean anything one has their heart set on. I had a tough pregnancy, bringing Misha into this world. Now, I love being at home and spending time with my child. I don’t want to spend an hour with her and then rush to work. Why did I have her? She’s not a puppy.”
She further angered many, as she said, ”The new wave of feminism is aggressive and destructive. There is a term called ‘feminazi’ which is now becoming the female equivalent of a male chauvinist.”
