The Miss India beauty contest was confronted with criticism of a lack of diversity among the finalists.

The organization came under fire after a newspaper had published headshots of all 30 women competing to take the crown home.

Twitter user LeBrown James shared a photo of the collage, asking: & # 39; What is wrong with this photo? & # 39;

The question led to dozens of responses from social media users who indicated that all women have a & # 39; fair skin & # 39; where someone simply says: & # 39; This is so white! & # 39;

Several other users joked that it looked like an advertisement for Fair and Lovely, a popular cosmetic brand for skin lighting.

The finalists won regional competitions throughout the country and will participate in the national final next month.

Prior to the event, the Times of India dedicated an entire page of the newspaper with short profiles of each of the women, accompanied by headshots.

Another commented: & # 39; They are all beautiful-toned women in color, look almost the same and represent the idea of ​​& # 39; ideal beauty & # 39; in our country. & # 39;

Miss India was a career progression for a number of past participants, including Priyanka Chopra, who finished second in 2000 and won Miss World, and Bollywood superstar Aishwarya Rai, who finished runner-up and won Miss World in 1994.

The rules have changed since then, so the Miss India winner represents the country in Miss World.
