Karandlaje, tweeting two weeks after the incident and tagging Oxford varsity in her tweet said: “Shame on you @UniofOxford! She is the 1st one to get a university degree in her family. 1st Indian woman President of Oxford Student Union. Made it through her hard work despite being from a small town in Udupi. Yet no feminists find it offensive! More Power to u @Rashmidvs!”

Rashmi Samant had resigned after winning the election of the Union amid allegations that some of her social media posts were insensitive and supported racism.

A post of her during her visit to a Holocaust memorial in Berlin was the special target of criticism.
