The history of India includes both warriors and slavery as well: Modi

1 min read

Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Friday that India was making up for its past errors by honouring its rich legacy and paying tribute to the unsung heroes who were forgotten in the history books that were written as part of a plot during the colonial era.

Speaking during the 400th anniversary celebrations for Lachit Barphukan’s birth, Modi remarked that India’s past had both its warriors and slavery.
He asserted that the history of India is the tale of warriors, triumph, sacrifice, selflessness, and courage.

Unfortunately, the history that was created as part of a plot during the colonial era was nevertheless taught even after Independence, according to the prime minister.
Slavery’s objective needed to be changed after Independence, but that didn’t happen, according to Modi.
He stated that now, with colonialism no longer holding it back, India is proudly going forward, appreciating its history, and honouring its heroes.

Lachit Barphukan put national interest ahead of family ties and did not think twice about punishing a close cousin, as Modi also recounted.

The life of Lachit Barphukan motivates us to put dynasty aside and consider the nation. No relationship is larger than the country, he had declared, according to Modi.

The Mughals were beaten by Barphukan (November 24, 1622–April 25, 1672) of the Royal Army of the Ahom Kingdom of Assam, who also put an end to Aurangzeb’s ever-expanding aspirations.
