Without Lachit Barphukan, NE would not have been part of India: Amit Shah | Guwahati News

GUWAHATI: Union home minister Amit Shah on Thursday paid rich tributes to Ahom kingdom’s greatest general Lachit Barphukan on his 400th birth anniversary and said if it had not been for the 17th century general, the NE region would not have been a part of India.
Taking cognizance of the fact that little is known about Barphukan and the Ahom kingdom, which reigned Assam for 610 years, Shah appealed to historians and students of history present at the function in New Delhi’s Vigyan Bhawan to rewrite India’s glorious history, which, he said, will ensure wiping out of untrue facts.
Speaking at the function, the first time when Barphukan’s birth anniversary is celebrated outside the state, Shah said, “Lachit Barphukan’s judgment and his valour not just saved the northeast but the entire South Asia from Aurangzeb’s bigotry assault. Had it not been for Lachit Barphukan, today the entire northeast would not have been a part of India.”
“I want to say that people of the country need to take pride in the country’s history to make a golden future. Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma’s initiative has not just brought the valour of Barphukan, but also the glorious history of the Ahom kingdom to the fore,” Shah said.
He urged historians present at the function to correct the country’s history.
Many a times I have come across this view our history has been wrongly written and manipulated. It could be true but now no one can stop us from rewriting our history in a glorious way. When the new history will come, what is false will go away,” he said.
“The government, which has come in the country, will support any initiative taken for upholding the country’s pride. Rewrite history so that we can encourage our future generation,” he added.
Shah urged Sarma to get the books on Lachit Barphukan translated in at least 10 Indian languages so that people of this country know about the valour of Lachit. Shah asked the students of history to do reasearch on 30 dynasties who have ruled at least 150 years in different parts of the country. Recognizing the role played by Lachit in halting the Mughals’ expansion, Shah said he defeated them inspite of his ill health in the Battle of Saraighat.
