Mira Rajput’s batchmate slams her over her feminism remark


Mira Rajput’s post pregnancy interview on motherhood and working woman has grabbed a lot of attention. She was trolled for her ‘puppy’ remark and working mothers highly slammed Shahid Kapoor’s wife Mira for her point of view on working mothers and their relationship with their babies.

The latest to criticize Mira and her point of view is her batchmate.

Here’s what she commented after watching Mira’s interview.

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

Mira had infuriated many with her views at a Women's Day event. She had 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."

She had also said, "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 (seven-month-old daughter) 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."

While husband and actor Shahid Kapoor totally supported his wife. Married in 2015, Shahid and Mira welcomed their first child Misha in August last year.
