Mira Rajput's comments on feminism and working mothers at a Women's Day event had stirred up controversy.

Shahid Kapoor's wife was criticised on social media for terming today's feminism aggressive and destructive. She had also apparently spoken less of women who choose careers over their children. Now, one of Mira's former classmates has taken to social media to hit back at her. She writes:

Dear Mira,
Having watched your interview, I feel enraged. 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 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.
