Himanta: Assamese community damaged by left caused irrevocable

Guwahati: Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Thursday alleged that people with left-wing ideologies have caused “irreparable damage” to the Assamese community and have sown “separatist ideology” in the state.
Addressing a function organized by the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) to celebrate the birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda, Sarma said the state was still facing the effects of the damage caused by the Left.
Reacting to his claim, the CPI(M) said that on the contrary, as it claimed, BJP’s Hindu-Muslim politics was causing irreparable harm to the Assamese community.

“The Left has done irreparable damage to the Assamese community. The concept of separatism was started by them and today we are bearing the brunt of it at every step.

Sarma said that in the last few years there has been a clash of ideologies and a new concept has emerged, while the BJP has tried to challenge established facts to find answers to certain questions.
“There are certain concepts in our society, but we don’t know their origin. There was a concept that Assam was a separate state and it joined India after the Treaty of Yandabo in 1826,” he said.

The Treaty of Yandabo was signed between the British and the Burmese king on 24 February 1826, ending the First Anglo-Burmese War. This treaty marked the beginning of British rule in Assam.
“Motivated by this notion and that Assam was forcibly annexed to India after independence, 10,000 youth took up arms and fought for independence,” he said, referring to the insurgency in the northeastern state.

Referring to the recent celebration of the 400th birth anniversary of Ahom general Lachit Borphukan, the CM claimed that when he was in school, the only thing he knew about the Saraighat battle were four names – Lachit Borphukan, Ram Singh, Aurangzeb and Bagh Hazarika.
“Leftists didn’t want us to know about the Saraighat war. They tried to present it as just a battle of territory because Lachit and Bagh were on one side while Aurangzeb and Ram Singh were on the other, ie. Hindus and Muslims on both sides.

Ismail Siddique, popularly known as Bagh Hazarika, was a 17th century Ahom warrior who fought alongside the Borphukans against the Mughals. He was born in an Assamese Muslim family in Dhekerigaon village near Garhgaon in Sivasagar district.
“Bagh Hazarika is fictitiously presented with Lachit Burphukan, but if you read the entire history of the Saraighat war, there is no such name. There may be some folk legend about it, but it is mentioned in the official history. No,” Himanta said.

He clarified that he had no objection to the name Bagh Hazarika and said that one lakh people had fought the battle of Saraighat, of which Bagh Hazarika could be one.
He added that the BJP and its ideologues have challenged this notion and want to free Indian history from the “clutch” of the Left.

“We want to remove Indian history from the left. Because India’s history was not one of defeat and defeat. Aurangzeb wanted to Islamize India, but it did not happen. Resistance movements were not known. A concept was created. That Indians are a subjugated community,” said Sarma.
He claimed that the Left wants to project a picture of despair, while people should be inspired by the victory in Indian history.

We have to challenge the attempt to distort Indian history with a logical mind. We need to study true Indian and Assamese history,” said Himanta.
The Chief Minister also criticized the Congress and claimed that the opposition party considers India as a ‘nation state’ and is comprised of certain geographical entities.

Sarma said that India is the identity of people’s culture, religion, rivers and mountains.

CPI(M) Assam State Secretary Suprakash Talukdar, however, begged to differ.
“It is quite the opposite. BJP’s Hindu-Muslim politics is causing irreparable damage to the Assamese community.

Talukdar claimed that for the unity and integrity of Assam and its various communities, 50 CPI(M) cadres had laid down their lives and “it was the RSS that carried out these murders during the Assam agitation.” was given”.
