Shah said Assam Chief Minister Sarma unveiled the stories of the glorious tales of Ahom warriors from Maharaja Prithu who defeated Bakhtiyar Khilji in 1206 to Lachit Barphukan who defeated the Mughals in 1671 and asked history students to visit the exhibition organized on the occasion. requested to see.

Shah said that Assam was invaded by Muslim invaders 22 times from 1206 to 1671, but could not keep it under Muslim rule for long because of the relentless commitment of its people to freedom.
