Remember the article we posted yesterday? and the other concerning the double standards of Cambridge University? In a recent turn of events Cambridge University have given Priyamvada a full professorship.
Thanks to everyone who wrote to @Twitter: the ludicrous ban has been lifted. I am therefore delighted to share with you personally, that last night Cambridge promoted me to a full Professorship. The hate mails & threats are coming in non-stop but @CambridgeCops are following up— Priyamvada Gopal (@PriyamvadaGopal) June 25, 2020
While we absolutely disagree with people sending hate mail and threats to Priyamvada we are in absolute shock that following her recent racist tirade that she has been given a promotion from the University of Cambridge. Twitter have since deleted the original tweet in question, Which can be found here – https://archive.is/5sdrs
She recently called to abolish all Brahmins and Upper Castes, Which infuriated a fair few members of the Indian community
@PriyamvadaGopal Are you Indian? Because, Any Indian who lives abroad will not say to abolish Brahmins, the backbone of Sanatan culture.— चौधरी जी.सिंह🇮🇳 (@samarsanatan) June 25, 2020
It seems that you are a leftist urban Naxalite. https://t.co/qid70XOb7g
As for her recent call to abolish whiteness, citing white lives dont matter, she infuriated not only white people, but Indians too. Many Indian twitter users said that as Indians, she does not speak for them.
as an Indian, she does not speak for me. pass it on— ANURAG SHARMA (@ANURAGS52774071) June 25, 2020
You have set off a firestorm. But you don’t speak for me as an Indian. I am proud to have many white friends.https://t.co/Q1GX8pgpm2— Bharat (@Bharat_UK) June 25, 2020
Quite a leap to go from being called ‘madam’, which is a respectful term, to crying racism. You seem like an over indulged narcissist and your students should be relieved they no longer have to hear this drivel. British Indian here by the way— Alexander Mann (@alex_singh_mann) June 19, 2018
