listen to the news
Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma claimed that the Mughals did not rule the whole of India at an event organized on the occasion of the 400th birth anniversary of Lachit Borphukan, the brave general of the Ahom dynasty of Assam. Himanta Biswa Sarma said that if we read the history, it is told that the Mughals conquered the kings of India, but the part of South and North East India was not conquered by them, which means they conquered the whole of India. Who did not win
Chief Minister Sarma said that historians portrayed Aurangzeb as the greatest ruler, if he was so great then why didn’t he conquer the North-East and Southern parts? He said that our historians have projected us as the defeated ones. We need to rewrite history because Mughals ruled only a part of India and not the whole country.
CM Sarma further said that Vinayak Damodar Savarkar was in jail for 26 years, if anyone questions him, he should sacrifice like him. Rahul Gandhi is raising questions on him today. This is a crime committed by Rahul Gandhi. Savarkar built today’s India on the basis of a civilization proud of nationalism. He said that there was always a conspiracy of the Left that India was defeated and Aurangzeb ruled India. Leftist historians ignore Lachit Borphukan and Chhatrapati Shivaji because they defeated the Mughals.
Who was Lachit Borphukan?
Lachit Borphukan is also known as ‘Chow Lasit Phukanlung’. He was a great and brave warrior of the 17th century. Due to his bravery, he is called the heroic ‘Shivaji’ of Northeast India. He is still remembered for the decisive battle he fought against the Mughals. He was born on 24 November 1622 in Charaideo district.
Lachit Borphukan Borbaruwa was the youngest son of Momaitamuli Borbaruwa, the commander-in-chief of the Ahom army under Raja Pratap Singh of Upper Assam. He was selected for the post of Borphukan by Chakradhwaj Singh. He is best known for his leadership in the Battle of Saraighat in the year 1671. To commemorate the victory of the Assamese army in the Battle of Saraighat, 24 November is celebrated every year in Assam as ‘Lachit Divas’. The Best Cadet Gold Medal is also given in the National Defense Academy (National Defense Academy) in the name of Lachit. Which is called Lachit Medal.
In the Ahom dynasty, in 1665, Lachit was made the chief army officer of the Ahom army i.e. Borphukan. In the Ahom army, the leader of ten soldiers was called ‘Deka’, Sainia of 100, Hazarika of one thousand, Rajkhowa of three thousand and the leader of six thousand soldiers was called Phukan. Borphukan was the head of all of them. Lachit is known for driving away the Mughals from Assam. The Ahom king Chakradhwaj Singh entrusted him with the responsibility of expelling the Mughals from Guwahati. At that time factionalism was at its peak in the Ahom army. Senapati Lachit challenged Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb in 1667 AD and not only challenged but also defeated his army badly.
